She is here.
Camila Grace, born on 12/26/2012.
well, at least she held out till the day after Christmas :)
she's 6 pounds and 15oz of pure sweetness and adorable-ness.
i'll do another post that include more pictures of her post-birth.
for now, i'm pretty much going to do a photo dump of all my pregnancy pictures.
i'm being selfish really.. because this blog serves as my memory bank.. and posting
here gives me an opportunity to organize my pictures and look back one more time
at this special time.
so, if you'll bear with me...
a little stroll through the last 9 months...
including my 'fruit' picture project. sadly, i was only able to photograph up to 24 weeks (baby was size of an ear of corn)... i wish i had completed it all the way through but life got really busy. but i'm super grateful that i was able to document so much of this pregnancy. i'm grateful that my husband was willing to humor me and
take my pictures as i requested it (as vain and silly as it sounded).
because, this is it folks.
no more little ones for me (us).. i finally feel as if our little family is complete.
it's so hard to explain it but that's the truth. does that sound strange?
and friends, know that i would have labeled these pictures for you if i had any more energy left in this little old
body of mine. but, alas, i do not.
i'm running on 3-4 hours of sleep every night and it's taken me about 3 days just to collect and organize these pictures up on here. this little girl is draining me dry.. she's so lucky she's so darn cute!! (wink) :)
all of these pictures have a special memory attached.
this first picture (red lipstick).. I took right after my 12 week appointment.
an appointment where i wasn't sure if we were going to hear a little heart beat or not.
i had mentally prepared myself for the worst.
and it is in my weakest and most vulnerable moments that God has chosen to reveal his infinite mercy and love in my life. this was on of those moments.
and 9 months later.. my little reward! :)
once again, thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers throughout this time.
i can't tell you what a blessing your words and comments of encouragement have been to me!
hugs to you all,
p.s. and what's this about it being 2013 already??
