It's SUMMER Time!!!

We are sooooo very excited to announce the arrival of our sweet little baby girl! Summer Daisy Bollinger was born on Friday, July 11, 2008. (Daisies were Leesa's Mother's favorite flower.) She weighed 6 pounds 11 ounces and was 20 inches long. We are all so in love with her and are excited to have her as part of our family. Leesa is still having a hard time getting used to saying little "girl" instead of boy and "her" instead of him. She is beautiful and perfect and healthy and we just love her. Also, I hope you all got your free slurpees today because it is, after all, 7-11.















The labor team. Charity, Angie (Leesa's doula) and Mike. I would not have made it through another natural birth without their support and patience. Thanks guys!!!
Everett and Tracy seem so grown up to me now. They were jumping around all morning when we told them we were going to the hospital to have the baby.









Tracy is very nurturing of his baby sister. He loves to kiss her and check her vitals. He always comments on how cute she is and how tiny her feet are to whomever he runs into. He is also telling everyone her name is Summer Bumble Bee (after his favorite Transformer).

Everett thinks she is a fun new toy but is much more interested in playing with Mommy's bed and all the tubes coming out of the walls. One of the reasons we decided on the name Summer was because it is so cute to hear him say "Summy".
Auntie Melody and Oakley. Oakley has promised to teach Summer how to be a princess because she only has older brothers.

Congratulations! We've been watching the blog daily since we went on bed rest to see how things were going. I'm sure a girl will be a whole new experience after two boys. And I really love the name. Super cute.
