I could just drink her in..  Those hand dimples are too much!

Being her Mother has been so incredible.  After having two miscarriages, I often felt like I might not be able to have a baby.  There were many nights that I would lie awake and just wonder what it would be like to actually have a child.  When I found out that I was pregnant for the third time, I’m not going to lie,  I was terrified.  I really thought in my heart of hearts that I would have another miscarriage.  I remember going in for an ultrasound at eight weeks and just closing my eyes so tight.  I could not make myself look at that screen.  Then I heard the most amazing words….  ”There’s a heartbeat of 156.  I quickly opened my eyes and hot tears came streaming down my face.  I saw the most darling, tiny baby squirming around. that was it. my heart was stolen.  Little did I know that this love only grows stronger with each passing day.

Our sweet daughter entered the world two weeks ago on November 8th.  I don’t know where the time goes but we’ve just been enjoying our days snuggling, sleeping and getting to know each other.  She weighed 6 lbs 11oz and was 20 inches long.  I cannot describe how much love I have for her and I feel like I can’t take it in fast enough. I am sooo incredibly thankful to God for bringing this precious blessing into our lives and for the many dear ones who prayed and prayed for her. This Thanksgiving we have so much to be thankful for!!!   I hope to write her birth story sometime soon and add pictures from the hospital.
