She’s Here!!

By now most of you know or have guessed the reason we’ve been MIA this week~

SHE’S HERE! Gabriella Grace, born Feb. 26- 6 lbs 11 oz and 20 inches long. I’ve been thinking all day about what to say in this quick little post.. and there really aren’t adequate words to describe our feelings for her besides complete and overwhelming love. Every little thing she does is a joy to watch… every time she opens her eyes we swoon.

I think parenthood is going to suit us well. Watching Joey love on her is about enough to make my heart burst. Here are some photos taken throughout the week!

Cheerio mouth!

Cheerio mouth! And one whole week old!

This little girl has made our lives richer in ways we could not have anticipated, and it’s only been one week! We have thankfully had so much help this week from our families, making the first week at home very enjoyable and not overwhelming. Recovering from a unexpected C-section and caring for a newborn is definitely a challenge (more on that later!) but so far Gabs has been so good to us and we just love every inch of her.

I still plan to continue with the blog (and of course K does as well!) but my posts will most likely be more spread apart and posted at various times when it works best for us- right now my first priority is my daughter ( I love saying that!) but this blog is a hobby I enjoy as well so I plan to keep it up! Maybe Gabby will help me bake some goods for ya’ll soon.

This proud Mama is going to sign off now and go cuddle with dad and Gabs.. good night!
