The Adorable Allie Jane

Allie Jane Webster is only nine days old, and she has already met most of her extended family. Much of the Webster side of the family lives in Florida near John and Alyssa, and Gil and Kelly traveled down soon after the birth to meet their granddaughter. This weekend, Alyssa and John drove up to Tennessee to surprise Alyssa's siblings, and they met up with Gil's parents and siblings on their way home. Allie Jane weighed 6 lbs 11 oz and was 20 inches long at birth.
