She's finally here! Korina Michelle Leff made her entrance into our world early in the morning of December 4th. After laboring at home for the afternoon and into the evening, Aaron was finally able to convince Kelly to go to the hospital at about 7:30 Friday night. Once there, we were told that Kelly was already 7cm dilated and the nurses started rushing around thinking delivery was imminent. Labor ended up stalling a bit through the night; however, and little Kori didn't make her arrival until 4:56am on Saturday morning.
Macy was thrilled to meet her "baby sister Korina". She immediately wanted to hold her and give her kisses. Macy is being a wonderful big sister and being very gentle and loving. Korina is proving to be such an easy baby. She is breastfeeding wonderfully and letting Mom & Dad get enough blocks of sleep at a time to maintain our sanity.
Kori looks exactly like Aaron was he was a newborn. Kelly remembered a newborn picture of Aaron at 3 days old and we pulled it out and she looks exactly like him - you wouldn't know the difference! With her dark hair and more olive complextion, she is the total opposite of Macy's very little blonde hair and fair complextion at birth.
We are so happy to have our new bundle of joy just in time for Christmas!
