Finally here!

Our beautiful baby is finally here!

Baby C
arrived on Aug 23.

Isn't she gorgeous?

For those that are wanting to know... labor was great! I had contractions for 5 days. They broke my water on the 5th day, then I had her within 4 hours. It went smoothly.

Birth is such a beautiful thing.

Then it was time to go home.

Baby C's going home outfit.

Laying on the quilt I made her :)

Baby C's first time in a car seat.

For Baby C's first week we had our dear friend Shelby from Simply Shelby Photography take some pictures.

Baby C also got to take a picture with all of her cousins.

Yes, they are all boys.

Needless to say Baby C has had an eventful first couple weeks of her life. I have more pics to upload and more stories of her experiences to tell. But not today, I don't want to make this post too long.

It is absolutely mind blowing that we have a child now. It truly does change ones life, in greater ways then I could have ever imagined. I now have the joy of feeling a different kind of love that I have never felt before. I honestly don't know what I did before her. Everyday we wake up and she seems to have grown overnight. Its only been 2 weeks, and it is flying by way to fast. I only have 3 1/2 weeks left with her before I start my new job. It will be a bittersweet day. Ill have to get in plenty of picture time with her! Which means lots of scrapbooking :)

And now I will leave you all with our first family picture
