This was the easiest delivery ever for me. We arrived at the hospital about 9:30pm. I had an epidural about an hour later, which made my legs feel like concrete, but took all the pain away. I slept off and on until about 3:30am. Then I was awaken by an intense pressure and the urge to push. I pushed about 3-4 times and she was out! The story takes another turn when I get home and have to take care of a newborn and a toddler while healing from the delivery. I have had lots of help from my mother, neighbor, and a family friend. Still the road is quite twisty.
She came out so cheesy.


See! Look at those eyes and she was just minutes old.

Snug as a bug.


Daddy and daughter meet. This is Jerry's first delivery that he got to see all the way through. Why? With our oldest, I had a c-section. and when the spinal didn't take they put me asleep in the O.R. and kicked him out. Next, with our second, I waited too long to get to the hospital. The delivery team met me in the E.R. and by the time he parked and came in she was out. So this delivery was a special treat. He got to see everything....ha!

In case you're looking for a photographer to document your own special delivery. Contact me, I would love to do that for you!

All bundled and coming to meet Momma.

Look at that belly button!

Always alert and ready to eat.


You know, when you look at newborn photography? And the photographer gets all the nice, sleepy, and curled shots. Not this baby! When I say she made me work for every shot that's what I mean. I had to nurse, cuddle, an hold her for every position change. We couldn't use about 10 blankets. They were ruined by poop, pee, and spit-up x10.

My own little tooshie time.


Not yet.




Thanks for stopping by,
