Meet Malinda Rose

Our sweet Baby Whimsy arrived Monday July 30 at 8:12PM.  She weighted 7 pounds, 2 ounces and was 20 inches long.  We named her Malinda Rose and call her Mallie.  She is pretty much perfect.

Mallie about 15 minutes after she was born

It was an all day affair on Monday; Mr. Whimsy and I headed to the hospital around 4AM that morning, and the Dr. said we could stay when she made her rounds around 8:30 AM.  We called BeBe (my mom) and MiMi (Mr. Whimsys mom) and asked them to spread the word.  

BeBe, Grandpa Jimbo, MiMi, Grandpa TC, Aunt Megan, Aunt Kristin and Aunt Marilyn were there to welcome sweet Mallie into the world.

Since being home Mallie has been the picture of the perfect newborn.  She rarely cries (only when she is hungry, chilly, getting a washcloth bath or getting her diaper changed) and would sleep throughout the night if she didn't need to be fed - I sometimes have to wake her up to feed her.  We know this won't last forever but are enjoying it while it does!

Thank you everyone for the well wishes, prayers and congratulations.  I promise to post more soon!

Thank you Grandpa Jimbo for all the great pictures!
