It's a GIRL!

This is Scott's sister, Vicky posting on their behalf. I'll just give you some quick info, but let Lisa tell you the full story later on.

Alice Davie Baptiste Peterson was born at midnight on Friday, May 15th.

She's 8 lbs 5.5 oz; 20 inches long.

She was 1 week overdue, and required 27 hours of labor from her poor mommy!

Lisa was a superstar working so hard for so long. It did take a toll on her body though. She lost a lot of blood and needed 2 units later that day. Her levels are coming back up now, she's gaining strength and recovering. After some much needed sleep last night she was able to sit up today and is starting to feel better.

Alice is doing great! Sleeping lots, and storing up so she can keep the new parents awake at home next week.

Scott is good; watching over his girls. He could use a shower - but who has the time?
The pictures are from the phone; but even in low resolution you can see this is a beautiful baby girl!


  1. She's absolutely beautiful! I can't wait to see more pictures!

  2. Congrats again, Scott and Lisa!!! Alice is so beautiful and precious. I'm so happy for the Peterson family of 3. I'm also relieved that Lisa is doing better. I'm very proud of you, Lisa. Have a happy Sunday together!


    PS. I hope Alice grows up to be a Yankee fan.

  3. Many many congratulations, Alice is absolutely beautiful.
