{Our New Family}

I am so proud to announce the birth of our baby girl, Evelyn Marie! She arrived 10 days early and the birth went really fast and smoothly! Evelyn was born on July 1, 2010 at 6:46am. 7lbs. 3oz. 20 inches.

Childbirth was the most incredible experience ever! It was so beautiful and nothing like the world portrays. We went totally natural. I am in awe of God and the remarkable power He blessed us with that day. I could have never done it without Him or my husband. Through each intense contraction, I could do nothing but stare directly into my husband's eyes. He was amazing and such a support for me. We went through only 7 hours of intense contractions and pushed for about 40 minutes and our darling daughter arrived and instantly captured our hearts! I just laughed and laughed when I realized she was a girl and my intuition had proven right the entire pregnancy!..until the end, when my husband tricked me into thinking it was a boy! It was perfect.

Both Evie and I did experience some complications after the birth. She developed a cephalohematoma on her little head which brought on jaundice and my blood count was way down. We had to stay at the hospital an extra day and return for checkups our first few days back home. All is well now and we are enjoying every minute of our little darling girl!


  1. Yay! Love you guys!
