Baby Life Pregnancy

Emerson Grace Allen! Born last Wednesday, October 12th, at 12:41pm. She weighed 8lbs 5ozs and was 20.6 inches long.







I’m turning 31 today, and she’s by far the best birthday gift I could have received. We’re celebrating with grandma and grandpa with a trip to the pediatrician, takeout and cake, and hopefully a waddle around the block.

I have to give a shout out to Matt, who has been AMAZING this past week! We love little Emerson so much already!

    What a beauty she is! And so wide awake in her car seat! Looks as if she’s ready for a road trip with Mom and Dad.
    Happy Birthday and many congratulations to you, Matt, little Emerson, and her grandparents!

    Hugely well done to all three of you!

    Such a thrilling time (nostalgic envy anyone?) – all the exhortations along the lines of ‘enjoy every moment’ are utterly nauseating but absolutely right at the same time!

    Yay! Congrats 🙂 I started following your blog when you lived in Boston (my home area!) and am so thrilled to see you’ve started a family. I just had a little girl, Lucy, 7 months ago and its the best. Enjoy!
