Me on delivery day. It was quite surreal to be at the hospital, with no contractions, and realizing that I'd have a baby in a just a few hours!

Karis becoming "official" at the hospital.

My mom, Karis and me.

Gracie and her baby sister. She adores her!

Our first family photo. Karis was a little over 24 hours old. We all happened to be wearing pink and/or green so we took a picture. I was feeling pretty good on that day. I was so completely in awe of the difference from my first c-section to the second.

This is Karis just cuddling on my chest. It doesn't get any better than this!

My beautiful girls and me! This was us right before I was discharged from the hospital. I was glad to go home yesterday because it was my big girl's third birthday! I was pretty exhausted by the time all the presents had been opened and "happy birthday" had been sung, but we made it! Karis had a pretty good night her first night home. She nursed really well and even slept for one stretch of 3 1/2 hours.

I am praying for all of you that are still waiting for your little ones to arrive. God is faithful!


  1. Yay! Congrats on another beautiful little girl!

  2. Awesome pictures. I really love the one of Karis laying on your chest. So cute!

  3. I have to say you are even more radiant then you were pregnant! Your family is beautiful and I am so excited for you! Enjoy your summer with your two precious girly-girls!!
