Welcome Sara Nadine Ford

At 9:37 am, we welcomed Sara Nadine Ford into our family. She weighed in at 5 pounds 7 ounces and was 17 1/2 inches long. There were no complications during the c-section and she has been a champ ever since. She has been alternating between napping and feeding. So far she is a great eater. We hope she can teach her big sister a thing or two there. We had both sets of grandparents at the hospital during the delivery and they got to see her within 10 minutes. They were all so proud. Braden and Kelli, Karen and David, and Dee have been by to see her already. Auntie Katy and Uncle Eddie are going to be visiting later. After delivery, Alissa's blood pressure has been elevated, so we had to limit our visitors to a couple minutes at a time. Overall, Mom is sore, but fairing well. We are both in love with our little girl.

Ready to Go

Sara is Coming

I apologize for the lack of updates. Life has been a blur. Sara is finally going to be welcomed to the world on Sunday morning at 9:00 am. Alissa has been having headaches, elevated blood pressure, and contractions, so the doctor doesn't want to take any chances with her health. Sara will be born just shy of 37 weeks, so we are thankful for that. Keep an eye out next week for photos of our newest family member.
