Calla Jade is here!!!!

Calla Jade was born on Saturday, 24 February 2007 at 10:29AM with lots of black hair, and she is BEAUTIFUL!!
Calla was born on my cousin Paige's 18th birthday so we think that is pretty cool that they will forever share that. Just a little history on Calla's name too...when my Grandma Drohman and her twin were born their mother died giving birth to them. They had several siblings at home and their dad needed some help raising them and so their Grandma Calla took them in and raised them all. She passed away in 1965, so I never met her, but we really liked her name and think it fits our little girl really well!!
We only spent a little over 12 hours at the hospital and everything went really well. Chad was right beside me all night and did a great job of supporting me when the pain was rough! Since Calla has been here she definately has worked really hard at wrapping her daddy around her finger...and she has successfully completed that task!! He is such a great father...thanks Shane for being such a great role model this last year!
Burlynn was here over the weekend and was a bit jealous of Grandma and Grandpa holding the baby, but she really liked to look at Calla too! Here are a few pictures and you can bet that there will be plenty more as she grows! Thanks for checking in on us!

I can't wait to meet her in person, and see the new mom and dad at work. I have no doubts that you two will be awesome!

so happy for you both, and i find myself having a bit of pride showing off your little girl and telling everyone about her!
