With only a little prodding from the doctor, she decided to wake up and join the rest of the world a little faster than anyone expected after that long wait - so there was some pandemonium in the hospital halls as everyone raced to catch her before she jumped out on her own.
She was alert and ready to go, since her Mom never got any drugs to help her with the labor and delivery, and looked everyone straight in the eye to put us on notice that she intends to make her mark in this family right quick.
So with a little help from me, here is her first Blog:
Hello everyone out there...my name is Blakely. I am pretty new at this, but I know I'll catch on quick. First of all, I want you to meet my beautiful Mommy:
|Don't you think she looks like me?|
She thinks I may wind up being a Volleyball star, but we'll see...Dad is all for anything I do, but he's already told me that he's going to teach me how to fish so that I'll be Lady Angler of the Year in about 18 years.
This is my Grandpa and my cousin Caroline...she is so smart, so beautiful - and she's going to teach me how to do all the stuff she knows how to do. I can tell that she likes me already...and my Grandpa has already told me I can have anything I want - anything!
|I think I'll ask for a new Jaguar and a cell phone.|
I got pretty hungry while all the adults were taking pictures and talking about me and my snappy little entrance, so my Mimi helped me out a little bit...
|She's my Mommy's Mom, so she already knows how to do this stuff.|
This is my first day, and I've been through a lot. I'm getting sleepy now.
So, I think I will take a little nap...I've got the rest of my life to tell you more about me, so there's no hurry right this minute...
