Well, we had the joy of welcoming our beautiful, 9lbs 12oz daughter into the world on September 21st, in our very own home! It was the most impacting and emotional experience of our lives, and we cherish every moment of it.
She decided to take her sweet time, and came right before the 42week mark. We had always planned to put together a birth announcement video after she was born, but after realizing the events and moments we had captured since her due date, we new a little birth story is the only thing that could do justice to the anticipation and excitement we felt along the way- just waiting to meet our daughter.
Our good friend Brooke also captured the whole birth process, as well as the bonding time after birth. We can't thank her enough for the amazing images she was able to create and capture for our family.
We'd love to share the rest with you: AMAZING BIRTH PHOTOS
We also want to thank our AMAZING midwife Kellie Moeller for helping us to have the most incredible birth experience we could possibly imagine. She's going to be a long-time part of this family as it grows.
The rest of the love (and there's a lot of it) goes to our family that supported us along the way. We couldn't have done it without them. We love our families so much, and this experience has done nothing but bring us all even closer together.
Parenthood has been absolutely amazing. You'll probably get more personalized stories from each of us, but for now, we'll stop blabbering on.
