A few friends/family have asked us about her name. Figured I should write out my thoughts so she could read it one day 😀
Over the last few years, I have contemplated whether or not I should keep up with the blog. With all the social media outlets and tech savvy avenues – the blog is pretty antiquated for 2015.
But I keep coming back to the same things:
(1) It’s my blog (my family’s) and I don’t have to feel bad about how much or little I share
(2) I can post 40 pictures if I want, and no one (but me or Joe) can complain
(3) I usually have WAY more to say than is allowed in a text or status update.
Because of the 3 points above… The blog will stay 😀 (It will just be behind sometimes – it’s not so ‘instant’ as other spots – mostly because of #3 above, ha ha)
Our little Grace is just over 2 days old. Only 49 hours old! She is doing great. We would have left the hospital after her 24 hour mark, but she had to have some additions tests run on her heart (3-4 nurses heard an irregularity in her heart beat). We are thankful the results were all normal/good. So, we got the discharge papers this morning.
Here are a couple of shots from her first day (Dani & Joe probably have better ones)
After what seemed like an eternity (1 week overdue), the Dr nudged out a little GIRL for the LaGreca’s!!!
It was a thrilling morning – that is for sure. I never actually had to get pitocin (yahoo!!) For as much as she wanted to hang on – it only took the Dr breaking my water – and then 4 hours later, she was born. She came so fast at the very end, the doctor (who was IN the hospital) couldn’t get to the room in time. The nurses delivered the baby. They did a GREAT job – and both of them were shaking their heads in disbelief at what had just happened. The nurse that ‘caught’ the baby had to come back (after I was calm and coherent) just to say ‘nice job!’
Sweet baby girl needed the extra week to plump up a bit. She came out 1 oz bigger than AJ!!! She has a head full of beautiful black hair and light blue eyes. I can’t help but see MY baby picture when I look at her. It’s sort of crazy!

I don’t have all the good pictures on my phone. But theses will have to do for now. More to come…
We are, officially, a Family of 5!! Can’t wait to introduce her to the boys. She will be well cared for in our house 😀💗
