The Life

And Then There Were Four…

13 drs appointments.


11 blood draws.

1 maternity support belt.

3 nervous breakdowns.

178 oreos.

89 “I just need to complain for a minute” conversations with Mike.

2 fights with Ikea about nursery furniture.

All got us to this very moment.

Life feels complete.

So as I sit and write this, it is 3am.  I have been recovering from a c-section which even an easy recovery as mine has been, it is still a tough one.  I am wide awake.  Because 3am is no time to sleep apparently. As I am watching the slideshow of photos taken over the past week I can literally feel my heart melt.  I am once again amazed that one little tiny little person can make me feel so whole.  Looking at these first moments as a family of four I feel like the luckiest girl in the entire world.

Welcome Baby Joey
