Layla Phoenix Dale | Personal

So. I was pregnant. And. I had a baby. WOO HOO!
Layla Phoenix Dale. Born December 9, 2012 at 6:57pm. 6lbs. 7oz. 19.5 inches.
This week she is 6 weeks old. I figured it was time for her blog debut.

The minute she entered the world she was enamored by her daddy’s voice and was a red-headed spitfire, ready to make our lives crazy…err… wonderful. ;)
It has been a really insane 6 weeks. While being sleep-deprived does not even begin to describe it, I wouldn’t trade it for anything. The good, bad, ugly and horrendous
have all been part of our story, our road to family and closeness. Everything we will experience is part of that and while it may not look like this or that person’s – it’s ours.
As her name means, “Beauty rises from the ashes”, she has been just that. Our little piece of beauty amongst life’s ashes. So, here you go, world… Miss Layla…

Andrew holds her just minutes after her debut into the world…

I’m Layla Dale and I like to have one sock on, one sock off. Oh.. and I spit up on everything these clowns dress me in… Oh… and I have insanely huge lungs…amydale_photography_baby_day_in_the_life007 amydale_photography_baby_day_in_the_life008 amydale_photography_baby_day_in_the_life009

    She has changed so much in just a few days! Ransom wants to know why she is crying??? I told him it was because she wants to play with him.
