The First Time They Saw Her

Tim brought the older 2 to the hospital today. They loved seeing their new sister. Bubba kept saying, "She is SO cute. She is SO cute. But, she doesn't look like I thought she would. I thought she would have bows in her hair".




Examining her legs and toes and fingers. Amazed by her every move.


Reece actually took this one. She has beautiful lips. There were two things that I was able to tell from her ultrasounds. That she had beautiful lips and that she had long legs. It is so fun to see them in person now!

She is gorgeous like her daddy. He makes pretty babies. All our kids are born with dark hair and then it falls out and comes in blonde. We will see if she follows the pattern. She looks a lot like Lake to me. She is very healthy and I am just praising God for her! I cannot believe I have a daughter! That I get to say "she" and "her". It is still kind of forced. We are just falling in love with our little Valentine!

Happy for you and your growing family. May you and your sweet girl have many wonderful mother/daughter moments and may her daddy and big brothers always be protective and playful with her!
