Introducing Our Little Baby Girl...Meet Shayla Brianne Reynolds!


Her name is Lin Ji Zhen.
As of March 28, 2007, she weighed 16 lbs and was 25 inches long!
She's a Halloween baby...born 10/31/06! That is Mark's most favorite day!!!
She has no teeth and sucks her fingers when she sleeps.
She can roll over and likes to play hide and seek. She has a favorite red toy. She's an active baby.
We're are over the moon with joy!!!!
NEW: Obviously speakerphones aren't all that great, we found the correct spelling of her name and she was 25 inches long, not 29 inches long!
