Final Score.... Boys 2 Girls 2

After a 14 hr labor Carlee Bryn Smith is finally here.  She weighed 6lbs. 8 oz. 20 1/2 inches long.  Daddy, Grandma Ragle and her Aunt Brandie were there to welcome her into our Family.(of course mom was there too) She spent her first week in the NICU... she still had some fluid in her right lung.   For some reason her mommy can not carry a baby past 36 weeks and they have all had fluid still in their lungs.   She broke Ian's NICU stay by 2 days.  After a long week of traveling back and forth from Upland to Fontana Mom is glad to have her home.  Her older siblings adore her and spoil her!!!  Britton has even tackled a dirty diaper!  What a an awesome older brother he is.  Carlee has her dads long toes and finger's and his BLUE eyes!!!
Mom has quickly been reminded of the fact that you do not get anything done with a newborn in the house.  But I would never trade a clean house for my Litttle Carlee.
