Baby Lailynne is Here!

I know lots of you have been following my pregnancy and proud Mimi (Denise) talks about it a lot so she made me promise I would post photos on the Blog as soon as she came. Well, after 41.5 weeks of gestation, Lailynne Patricia Hernandez is here! She was born Tuesday, October 18th at 10:31am. Our big girl weighed 10lbs 2oz and was 21.5 in long, she was a big girl! She was born at home with a midwife and everything went great! Audriella is being a great big sister and very helpful, only a little jealous :). Here are a few photos of our cutie:
