HDBD - my "outside bump" :)

Hard to believe that today was Nicolette's Due Date.  

She surprised us with an early arrival at 9:20pm on Thursday, July 5th!  7 lbs, 8 oz and 18.5 inches long.  Mommy labored at home for most of the day and made it to the hospital at 8:30 just in the nick of time for Nicolette's 9:20pm Grand Entrance!  

Mommy was thrilled to have a natural, drug free birth experience and is working on writing out my Birth Story so that I don't forget a single second of the experience.  It was beyond perfect!    

She is absolutely perfect and mommy and daddy are in heaven!  

We're getting our schedule situated and enjoying our new family so you might not hear much from us for a while.

Many thanks for all of the prayers and well wishes.  She could not be more perfect and we could not be  any happier.  I honestly never knew that I could love anyone this much.  I feel like my heart grew 100 times.  

We are certainly blessed beyond what we deserve!  

Thank you to Jesus through whom all things are possible!

"I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him. 28 So now I give her him to the LORD. For her his whole life she he will be given over to the LORD.” 
 I Samuel 1:27-28
Lord, forgive me for changing the pronouns to fit our situation :)

  3. I'm so happy for you! I actually happened across your blog by accident two weeks ago. You actually had the exact same due date as two other friends of mine, what are the odds? None of you actually made it to July 11th btw, the first had her son on June 28th and the second friend had her little girl the same day as you! :) take care and enjoy your little blessing! She's beautiful.

  4. Yay! Been following you since your bfp! Motherhood is amazing! Congrats on your gorgeous girl!
