I woke up at 6:30 in the morning with contractions.
Alice was born at home, in water a little after 10 that morning.
7 lbs 12 ounces and 20 1/2 inches long
She didn't have a name until I was 38 weeks. Jake wanted to name her Cleo, after his great-aunt. I wanted to name her somthing with an 'S' like her siblings. We settled (I won) on Alice after I had heard the name on TV one night. I picked Joelle to follow suit with a 'J' middle name. Then she was born on Great-Aunt Cleo's birthday. Of course we had to give her the name after that. I couldn't give up the 'J' middle name though, so she became Alice Joelle Cleo! A lot of name for a little girl to handle, but I assure you she does just fine.
