Allison = great name. You guys are awesome.

Pretty Name - Allison Grace will probably be tall like her mom, with beautiful hair. I'm not keeping track, but I don't think anyone had mentioned that name in "the contest" way back!

Thanks for the updates, Glrr!

Ray said...

OMG! I love the name! It's beautiful. My cousin and I love the name Allison and my aunt absolutely adores the name, "Grace!!" She even has it as part of her screen name, hoping one day that if she has a daughter she'd be called, "Grace."

CONGRATS ONCE AGAIN TO THE NEW HAPPY PARENTS! YOU TWO BOTH MUST BE IN PURE BLISS!

And I know you're both loving every second of it. Especially YOU Kelly. =) I'm very happy for the both of you! I'm just upset that it's 11:14 pm and I'm just getting the news now! Darn it!

Anyhow, I'm glad she's finally here. WHOOO HOOOOOOO to the newest member of such a great family!

Welcome Little Miss Allison Grace. I know you are beautiful and loved.

Jayne said...

Congratulations!

I can't wait to see the first pictures of Allison! =)

Ray said...

Okay I know I'm sending one TOO many comments, but I have a question for you Kelly when you finally get back. The question is:

"How does it feel to finally have her here? You've been anticipating it for so long! How does it feel new mommy? Ohmygoodness you're a mother. It feels kind of surreal and awesome at the same time! Okay I'll stop with the comments, before you think I'm psycho."

Night.

Best wishes for all that is to come. You and Jerry will be excellent parents.

Oh wow...

I was seriously CONVINCED that the name was going to be Hannah Grace.

It kinda creeps me out that I got half of it right!

Congrats!!! Can't wait to see her!!

I am so excited for you. Having followed this from your descriptions since the beginning, I feel almost as if I was having the baby myself (without any of the hard work, of course).

Health, wealth, and happiness.

Great name! But I must say, as a copy editor, I'm a little disappointed in the spelling.

congratulations kelly and jerry!!!
ps. the name is perfect

Anonymous said...

congrats!
i have a sister-in-law "allison"
they call her "allie-oop"
and are always teasing that she's Alli-SON, like the sunshine. I guess she gets a lot of "Alli-sen?"

I digress.

Congrats again! :)




ps:their last name has been posted on the site before...i think it's okay.

Gisela said...

Guys, in case you wanna know, I got the pic last night and Allison is SO stunning that I have not stopped looking at her all day. She def. has Kelly's eyes! She looks like she's already like a week old, she's not all purple and shrivelly and gross like most babies look when they come out, she's just gorgeous. Big cheeks and Kelly's fairy eyes.

allison said...

I talked to Kelly this morning. Everyone is doing fine. She sounds in very good spirits, but says she's still pretty tired.
She and the baby will probably be in the hospital another day.
