She's Here!!!!!!!!!!!

The prettiest, pinkest thing has arrived!

Brace yourself for lovely beauty!

Can you handle it?

Here goes:

Our Ladybug is here! Ya, she came out this gorgeous. Isn't her color amazing for a freshly birthed baby!?! And such a sweet, round head! Okay, can you tell I'm her Momma? I'm so in love!

She had to wear her monkey jacket from Auntie Christi a few days after her birthday because her super awesome older brother had a piece of his orthodontic appliance break the day before the orthodontist left for Christmas...Trust me, that's a whole other post in itself! Let's just keep this one focused on this sweet bundle today.

Oooooh, this is her "Hey, Daddy is gone..Let's play dress up because you are less than 15 hours old picture." She pulled it off pretty nicely, I think.
I love this sweet outfit from Auntie Moelissa! {The two aunties mentioned are my dearest friends who are both out of state...sniff...sniff...I love those girls. And they both sent me clothes and gifts months before she was due. I think they were a little excited too.}

She sleeps like an angel. Look at those sweet hands.

She is ridiculously loved by her brothers.
Especially by Hoot.
He has surprised me.

He is devoted to his sister. {another post to come on this subject}

She is the perfect addition to our family.
Thank you, Lord, for answering my heart's desire. Our girl is really here!

Added Post Post for my friend Tab who helps keep me in line: She was 8 wonderful pounds and 4 ounces. The tiniest 8lbs 4 oz ever. She is still in newborn clothing and well over nine pounds. This is a first for us! Dainty little thing. But she's kind of long at 20 and 1/4 inches.
And she was a home birth {another post--Gosh, I have a lot of posting to do}. My labor kicked in around 2:30-3 pm and she entered our world at 5:23 pm! It was the most amazing thing that I've experienced yet!!

She is so PERFECT! I'm so excited for you, friend :) I can't wait to do the same lovin' and snugglin'. What was her birth weight and length? Did I miss that? And what time did you have her? I love all those details :)

Tab, you have been on my mind a lot lately! I'm excited for you to hold your little bundle too!!!
I added the details to the post, thanks for keeping me straight! 8 lbs 4 oz and 20 and 1/4 inches. Born at 5:23 in the afternoon. I plan on sharing her birth story at some point. It was sooooo, so neat that I keep reliving in my head over and over. :D Looking forward to your little one's birth announcement!

She is absolutely beautiful! I would get nothing done but looking, kissing, dressing & holding her all day - well & taking naps with her. I'm so happy for you.

Please bring her to a Mums meeting this spring so we can all meet her!
