She's Here! {or the one with TONS of photos!}

The moment we have been waiting patiently for for nine months finally arrived last friday night! Baby Girl decided it was time to officially join our family and enter into this world!

What started out as what I thought were back pains from sleeping wrong, quickly turned into full-blown contractions! We arrived at the hospital at 2:01 am {saturday morning} and she arrived 1 hour and 22 minutes later at 3:23 am - weighing 7lbs 3oz and, much to my surprise, was born naturally!! {if you know me, you know how much of a shock this is!!}

So, without further ado, I introduce to you, Heidi Joy!!

Caleb is absolutely awe struck with his baby sister. Wanting to "pet" her and kiss her and constantly hold her hand. He has taken to her far better than I ever imagined that he would

Emma surprised me at first. She was a little reserved around the baby -  not wanting to hold her or kiss her or hardly look at her. But, once we got home from the hospital, that all quickly changed. She has embraced her little sister -  the one she prayed for - with such a loving and caring heart!

I cannot wait to see the relationships that evolve from these three. What a joy it is being a mama!

Welcome to the world Heidi Joy! Your daddy chose right when he picked your middle name, for you have brought us so much Joy since the moment we found out we were expecting you!



"I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the LORD. For his whole life he will be given over to the LORD." ~ 1 Samuel 1:27-28
