Our Grand Baby is Here!

Please welcome
Juliana Pearl Chealey
8lbs 8oz
20 3/4"
1:45 pm

My Mom and I helping Alyssa push.
Well, Mom helping while I watched the birth in the mirror at the end of the bed.

Baby girl meeting her Mommy...

Grandpa already in love and knowing how honored his Mother would be if she were still alive.
Pearl is her middle name.
1st time being held and kissed on by her Great Grandma
Juliana sucking her thumb trying to get warmed up by Mommy
Within one hour Alyssa went from being dialated 4 centimeters to 9 and by 1:45 we had our girl.
It was so neat...Juliana's uncle Aaron cut the chord.

She's beautiful and she has chubby cheeks.
She looks so much like her big sister.
Her head is completely covered with beautiful black hair. Jet black. So soft.
And she smells so baby.

Tomorrow the sisters will meet.
1 year old Amiyah will come face to face with 1 day old Juliana.
And Amiyah will probably get excited with her new toy.

I thank God so much for her and I can see why she is precious in His sight.
All three of my girls.

Thank you for your prayers.

Okay...I really got to get back to those cheeks.

Beautiful - thanks for sharing. There is nothing as sweet and as scary as watching your children give birth. I have been in the delivery all 5 times an it is just as awesome each time. Just as miraculous.

Many many blessings on you all,

Pastor Susan David said...

So glad everything went well and you have a happy, healthy baby girl. Give Alyssa our love and tell we are praying for her!

Rachel B said...


Oh, and btw, your comment about tying her tubes made me think, "How'd she convince them to do that?!" Then, I had to laugh out loud at myself when I read that you were just kidding. Very funny! :)

Chris & Brenda said...

Beautiful! Congratulations to all!!

Paula said...

Hi Leila, so I'm guessing that she was a 3rd of June bubby? So privileged if she was! She is adorable! Thought you were serious about the tube thing too. Will pray for Alyssa! Pearl is the June birthstone too, and what I now have on my charm bracelet, a mother of pearl heart charm. Will think of Juliana now when I look at it. Good visual to pray for your girls! xo

Yolanda said...

What a precious, precious gift from God.

Micca said...

Congratulations!!! What a happy day it is when a new family member arrives!! She's such a sweetie-pie!

I can't believe you're almost through my book! What a blessing you've been. I've enjoyed learning about and praying for your family.

I'm not sure if I'll be able to write closing remarks or not. I just found out that I have Mono. However, If you will send me a reminder Sunday night, I'll try and write something.

I appreicate all those who spent time reading and studying my book. I pray that God spoke to them in a persaonl way and will seal the truths He taught them deep into their hearts!
Wishing you all of heavens blessings!

Congrats, Grandma! Precious indeed. I can't wait to see how much she will grow to look like her sister.
