SHE'S HERE!!

Born on November 17, 2010
at 3:39pm

Weighing 6lbs 14oz and 20 inches long

With 19 hours of med-free labor, 5 hours of epidural, and just over an hour of pushing (with a lopsided working epidural)

We proudly welcome our baby girl

Emmalyn Grace

***

Story behind her name...
Emmalyn
Blake's grandmother's name is Evelyn and we've liked the name Emma since before we got pregnant, so B combined the two.
Grace
My grandmothers' names are Gussie and Georgia so we picked a "G" name we really loved and sounded pretty together.

Momma is doing well. We'll be here 48 hours because we both had fevers, although they're completely gone now. I'm crying over how in love I am, soaking it all in, and trying to document everything so I don't forget. She's a precious little miracle and I couldn't be more in love.

I can't wait to write her Birth Story and tell you all the real & fun little details ;)

Thank you again for your unconditional prayers and well wishes. I've read every single comment and am so humbled by your kindness. B and I appreciate it more than you know!!
God Bless!
