The baby with no name

"Awww, when are you due?"
"September 27th."

"Boy or girl?"
"A little girl."

"What's her name?"
"We aren't sure yet..."

Above are the top 3 questions I've been asked in my life over the past 6-ish months followed by my answers that never changed.  We weren't concerned with the fact that we didn't have a name picked out yet.  We knew once we saw her, we would pick the perfect name and that's exactly what we did.  Everyone else, however, was pretty concerned that we didn't have a name picked out until the birth she was 2 days old.  Everyone agrees that it's the perfect name. 

Aliyah RyAnn Marie Dean, weighing a perfect 6 pounds 11 ounces and coming in at 20 inches long, blessed us with her presence on Saturday, September 20th at 4:26 am.  I was in labor for about 14 hours.  From the time I was dilated to a 10 and 100% effaced to the time she got here, it was about an hour.  

Aliyah is 7 days old today and I already have so many things to say about her!  More stories and pictures to come!
