She’s Here!


On Thursday night, one day after her due date, this little lady made her grand appearance.

She weighed in at 8 pounds, 10 ounces (which makes her our second smallest baby), and measured 21 inches long.

We are all completely obsessed with her and are enjoying these first quiet days at home getting to know her. Having a newborn is ten thousand times better than being pregnant.

I’ll be calling her Tally on my blog (after the main girl in Uglies – Bart has been suggesting this name since before Ani was born, so I figured it might as well get used somewhere, if not in real life).

    Congrats Bradshaw family! What a sacred, sweet time. Love the name Tally, the Uglies series is definitely a guilty pleasure favorite. If you wanted to give a hint as to her real name, I’m sure no one would mind 😉

    Such a cute blog name! I feel like all your blog names group nicely together and all their real names group nicely together. I’d love to learn her real name someday. She’s so so beautiful. Babies with squishy, kissable cheeks are the best kind of babies!
