Wedding Blog Break for BAILEY GRACE!

We interrupt this scheduled blogging wedding update to tell you that Doug’s Sister, Jenni, gave birth to a healthy, baby girl on July 2 at 3:09 am. We were able to make the birth in Memphis from Nola. It was so great to be there!

When we got the call early Sunday morning that Jenni’s water broke, we packed our bags and started the 6 hour drive to Memphis. We arrived at 2:30 pm and were pleasantly surprised to find out that Jenni and Bailey decide to wait until we arrived. She had just received the epidural and was feeling pretty good! :) We had some delicious BBQ and waited for Bailey to grace us with her presence.


I was monitoring contractions..ha


Later that night as the epidural wore off, Bailey decided it was time. We were kicked out of the room about 2:30 am (I ran) and headed to the waiting area (which was really nice!).


I took a little nap until Craig came to get us about 3:30 am. Here is the group running to meet Bailey Grace..


She was born at 3:09 am and is/was perfect.


Uncle Doug getting the hang of it:


Congrats Jenni and Craig! You guys did a great job. She is adorable.


Uncle Doug really did not want to leave you guys today, but don’t fret as we will be back soon.

Love and Hugs, Lizzie


  1. The baby is pretty cool, but that Tshirt that Doug was wearing is totally awesome.

  2. Oh my gosh, she is SO cute! And Jenni looks great! This makes me even more excited for Doodlebug!!!!

    (Sorry for all of the exclamation points.)

    Congrats to the new mom and dad, grandma and grandpa, and aunt and uncle; glad Riley-bean could give the two of you a tiny bit of practice. :) Love y'all!
