Hallie Sue

Our sweet Hallie Sue Roe was born last Tuesday, March 20th, at 1:32 p.m. She was a teeny little thing and weighed 6 lbs. 6 oz. and 19.5". Jacoby was almost a whole pound bigger than she was. I was two weeks early and we were not expecting her to come this early, needless to say, I wasn't as prepared as I should have been. My water broke around 4:00 a.m. and I was a little unsure of what was going on, but soon realized that there was no mistaking it, my water really had broken. We went to the hospital, took Jacoby, just to make sure it was for real and they did a test and found out that I was in labor. Tyler took Jacoby to our friends' and came right back. My contractions we're hurting at all at that point. They started me on Pit to make things go a little quicker and I was able to get my epidural just when I had started feeling painful contractions. So much better than with Jacoby. Things went really quick from there and she was ready to come. Tyler had actually gone to get some lunch when the nurse checked me she said, "Where is your husband, you're ready to have your baby." Ah, luckily he was in the parking lot. Things went so well and we're so grateful she was healthy. We've been waiting a long time for her and are so happy to finally have her.

Jacoby just loves her; it is very sweet to see them together. He does miss all the attention because it was just him for so long and he's sick of staying home all the time since we are usually going to parks, walks, bike rides, and activities everyday. Luckily, so many of our friends have been so great to have Jacoby come over and play.

Friends and family have been SO WONDERFUL since we had Hallie and I will never forget all that they have done for us. I love you all!

Tyler's mom and little brother were able to come down right after she was born to help us out. It was so wonderful to have help with Jacoby, the house, cleaning, and meals. Debie even got me flowers, Cadbury Eggs, and a package of cookie dough. Taylor grilled us some yummy medium steaks I've been craving. :) We're grateful they could come help us out.

It was actually a good time in school for Tyler for Hallie to be born, so I'm thrilled about that. We've been able to see him a lot more lately. I love seeing Tyler with Hallie; he is such a great dad.

As you can see in the pictures, Hallie has a little dimple in her chin. We have been wondering where it came from and figured out that my Uncle Daren has one and also Tyler's Grandma Sue that passed away, that she is named after. We realized this after we had decided on the name. I thought that was pretty special.

It has been really difficult to be away from family right now. I just want everyone to be able to see my baby, but we will go home soon. My mom comes on Sunday and I can't wait!

Going home!

Oh my heck. That last picture of Jacoby with Hallie is so cute! I love all the pictures though. I think it's pretty sweet that she has the same dimple as Grandma Roe too!

She is so beautiful! I love how happy Jacoby looks with Hallie, hopefully you guys don't go too stir-crazy being cooped up inside. It is hard being away from family, but it makes it so much more exciting when they haven't seen the baby in a while.

She is so beautiful! Congrats. I feel the pain of being away from family. So hard. Glad your mom and bro in law came and that your mom will arrive soon. Love her name too. Kennadee was named Hallie for a few hours and it was on our list for Kate as well.

Ah! She's so beautiful and I can't stand not getting to be there and hold her! I'm glad everything went well and that you were lucky enough to go early even though that means Mom wasn't there yet. Did you make that cute bunting? It sounds like Debie and Taylor took great care of you. I'm glad you finally got your steak!
