Kalea Grace Slayton, more beautiful than we could have ever imagined.
I went to the hospital tonight to visit with Tim and Shannon and had the most amazing experience- I met baby Kalea. It was so surreal to finally meet the little person that we have all been thinking, dreaming and praying about for so long. She is everything I ever imagined her to be and so much more! Because Baby K came so early she is being kept in an incubator in the NICU at MUSC but she is strong and already has an attitude! Go baby girl!! When we lifted the blanket that covers her incubator, she screamed so loud that we could hear her through the plastic walls and started kicking her little leg up in the air! It was the best!! She has tiny little fingers, dark hair and the cutest little ears! I love her so much already! Anywhoo, I know you are all probably ready to just look at the photos so here they are. I'm sure I'll have hundreds more in the weeks to come. Oh, and by the way- Shannon is doing great (ET phone home) and I don't think Tim stopped smiling once all night. They are just the best. Enjoy!!
