Lainey Shae Allred

She finally has a name! We descided on Lainey Shae and we love it! It feels good to call her something, instead of "little baby". She is such an angel and we feel like she is just meant to be in our family. I am sorry to keep posting so many pictures, but for our families far away, this is the only way to share her! Thanks for being excited for us.

Our beautiful little Lainey Shae

Lainey with Grandma Strong. We are so lucky that she is here!

We had a PJ/Movie party at the hospital. It was really fun!

The girls brought Lainey some toys to "play" with. You've gotta love the Barbie!



Even sweet little angels get a little upset sometimes!



Taking her home!

You are so amazing to be blogging right now! I haven't blogged in a month and have no excuse! Love the name you chose. It fits with Hallie and Maggie. By the way, you really look great for having just had a baby. Congrats again!

Love the name, and you look so good i think I am going to be sick! I can't believe you just had a baby, way to be a superwoman!!

Jennifer said...

How come you look SO good??? Your girls, all three of them, look adorable. The first pictures you posted didn't look as much like the other two, but these last ones I can see more resemblance in them. How are you? I miss talking to you. Everytime I have a second to talk, usually when the boys are asleep, it is too late to call because you are an hour later than us. I hope you are doing okay and that you are getting taken care of. Everytime I see your hair in the pictures, I think it looks GREAT... way to go Aaron. Joseph gives a "shout out" to Aaron. =) Talk to you soon!!!

OK so you look like a model in your pictures! I never look that great after having a baby. You guys just have the cutest family and we are so happy for yoU!!!

I don't think you could post too many pictures of that sweet baby. We need to come by and see her when you are ready. I absolutely love that name. Shae is such a cute name. Hope you are doing good. Call if you need anything and also if the girls want to come over.

Whitney said...

Katie, she is so beautiful! And you look fantastic! Brad and I will have to come see her when all calms down some. Let us know if you need dinners or anything, I'd love to bring something over!

Congrats to the Allred family! So good to hear what you and your cute family is up to! Not only do we have the folk dance connection, but Kari (Scott) Ward was my roommate at BYU-Hawaii! Are you in Iowa too? You wouldn't happen to know where Pat is these days?

Hi Katie. I just went back through all your blogs and it was so fun to remenisce. It brought me lots of smiles and some really good belly laughs. What a great way to keep us updated when we can't have the real thing. I sure miss you guys, especially my three little princesses!! Please give them a great big hug from Grandma and tell them I love them! Love you!
