Happy 50th Grandpa!

Grandpa Duane turned 50 on the 20th of March and Grace celebrated in style - sleeping!
Notice how Momma and Papa wish they were sleeping in this picture too! Oh all the joys of being a new parent! :)
Happy 50th Birthday, Grandpa!

10 days old!

We took some photo's of Miss Gracie at 10 days old.

Not too bad for a Nikon and a Snuggie for a backdrop!
She's our little angel for sure.

We have survived the 1st week!
Grace is amazing! We sleep way more than we expected we would as new parents.
She had her 1 week appt today and now weighs 7lbs 2 oz! She is a big, healthy eater!
She loves to be swaddled, and Papa is the best at it.
She currently has beautiful blue eyes. We will see if that stays that way.
Our dogs seem to love her. Especially Reagan the Boxer who has become a bit of a babysitter and follows her around. (whomever is holding her)
We are so blessed!

Living with Grace

I have started a second blog. This one will remain about my family life. The new blog will focus on my journey and joys of motherhood. I have two Graces - my baby Grace and God's Grace. Follow me on both!

Happy Birth Day!

We welcome our beautiful baby girl!
Just a few hours after she was born.
Proud Papa. He was a great labor coach for me.
Momma and Grace
Her first bath in the hospital. She was not happy about this!
On our way home the next day. So thankful we didnt have to stay longer! I asked if we could go home the night she was born, but they told me they like to observe babies for 24 hours.
We cannot stop praying and praising the Lord for her and her arrival! She is far more amazing than we spent the last 9 months thinking she would be. We already cant (dont want to) remember life without her.

I am working on a second blog that will focus just on my life & journey as a momma. I will post the full (amazing!) details about the birth on there for those who want to know. I will share that link later!
