Welcome Emmy Leighton!

Introducing sweet Emmy Leighton – born Tuesday, October 2nd at 4:52 a.m.

I happened to be carrying a giant baby – 7 pounds, 13 ounces and 20.25 inches long!

We are in love!

Some fun facts about her birth:

Mommy and baby share a birthday!

We were both born on Tuesdays.

I weighed 7 pounds, 14 ounces and she was only 1 ounce smaller!

Another fun fact is that my sweet friend Ann who helped throw my shower also had a baby the same day in the same hospital! Oddly,the babies also weighed EXACTLY the same. They are destined to be baby bffs!

We love you Emmy!

I will post more soon – including her birth story…it was a little rough on both of us, but luckily she is worth it!
