Laila of the Night

Here she is, and it was worth the wait. Welcome to Laila Elizabeth to Sharon and Jim. Born in the water on Feb 3, 2008. Here's some of her deets:
-She was born on her due date
-She was born underwater
-She came out after less than 20 minutes of pushing
-Her name, Laila, means "night" in Arabic (appropriate since she was born at 3:30 am), and is a famous character in an epic love story from the Middle East
-Her middle name, Elizabeth, is a tribute to Elizabeth Bennett, the witty heroine of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice (I'm a big fan). I also thought it would be nice to give her a more traditional middle name to balance her unusual first name.
