Samar Leigh was born on 13 Jul 2009 at 8:28pm. She was 8lbs, 13ozs and was 19.25 inches. She was a little early (Thank GOD!) at 37 weeks gestation, but very healthy and happy. We are so excited and happy to have finally met her! Big sis is such a helper and loves her baby very much, she calls her "baby 'bibi" (she says bibi instead of habibi). Here are a few pics....
