We welcomed our sweet little babe into this world eleven days ago. It's been a whirlwind of learning, loving, and snugglin' together and we wouldn't have it any other way. I spent a whole lot of time preparing to be a mom by trying to imagine what things would be like once this little girl arrived-- and things couldn't be more different than what I'd dreamed up inside my head. But, I mean that in a good way. She's more lovely, more sweet, more sleepy, and more wonderful than anything I could have ever imagined. I don't know what we did to deserve this angel baby, but we couldn't be more grateful that she's ours.

In her first eleven days of life, I've seen her smile more than I've heard her cry (I can actually probably count the number of times she's cried on my fingers alone), I've changed more dirty diapers than I can count (and I've been puked on a couple of times as well), and I've felt my heart grow at least three sizes. You know that part in the Grinch where his heart physically grows to make room for more love? Yeah, that's what I feel like each day when I wake up to this sweet little baby (sounds ridiculously cheesy, but it's ridiculously accurate). There's something super special about being able to look down at a little baby and know that somehow (and we're still not even sure how it all works because baby-growin' still blows my mind... probably even moreso now than it did before...), that little angel came from you.

Say what you want about love at first sight, but I'm now a firm-believer in it. I fell in love with this baby girl from the very moment I first laid eyes on her... and somehow I've grown to love her more and more with each and every passing day. I still can't even believe that she's actually mine. And I still can't believe that I get to raise her alongside my sweet Taylor Dale. Life is pretty cool right now-- crazy and unpredictable, but so, so sweet.

  1. She is seriously the most beautiful baby girl I have seen! So perfect. She just looks like she has the most sweetest little spirit. :)
    Does she have any strawberry color to her hair? I can’t tell. Sorry I keep commenting here. I don’t have an Instagram account. Okay I will stop bugging you now. ;)

  2. Congrats! She is so lovely! I love her name too. I know you'll make great parents.
