The Arrival of Savannah Marie – a St. Patty’s Day Baby.

One week ago, our lives changed forever.

We were over 18 hours into labor and still an hour and a half away from meeting the love of our lives.

At the height of the experience I swore I’d never put my body (or my mind) through this kind of pain again.

And then I met her.

And everything I ever thought or believed changed – completely.

It’s been a full week and I still can’t find the words to express the overwhelming feelings coursing through my body.

Suffice it to say, my heart bursts every time I lay eyes on her.

It actually hurts. Is that possible?

We have been on the adventure of a lifetime. The highest of highs and the lowest of lows.

But she’s here. And she’s all ours. All day. Everyday.

And I couldn’t stop my love from growing if I tried.

So I embrace it, even though it causes me pain to care so much about another human being.

I’m a mama and he’s a daddy. Our family grew in an instant.

And she made us better – just like that.

Even Lola’s in-love.

Our Bossa Nova Baby has that way about her.

She’s enchanting.

Hello World!

Love at first sight.

 Meeting Nona: one of my two amazing birth companions.

A family affair.

Ready to go home.

All dressed up and nowhere to go.

Welcome to the world, beautiful girl!
