. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Meet our daughter . . .

July 15, 2013

Meet our daughter . . .

Photo: So in love with this baby girl. Having a hard time believing she is ours.  God is so good.

Addilyn Jane Vale
Born July 14 at 9:38 am
8 lbs. 13 oz.   21 inches long 


I am beyond overwhelmed with love and emotions for this sweet baby girl and
 still don't believe we get to take her home tomorrow and that she is ours. 
I couldn't feel more thankful to God for blessing us with this miracle. 


Chris and I can't wait to begin our lives as a family of three.  
Thank you for all your prayers and excitement for our baby!
I'm excited to share about her arrival and of course ore pictures soon!

CONGRATULATIONS gorgeous mama and new daddy! I've been seeing your updates on IG - don't worry about the biliruben count - mine were low when I was born, and the sunlight helped and took it all away. My niece's count was low as well, and the machine they put her in is not harmful at ALL! She will be safe - promise!!!

Shelby said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Congratulations!! She's such a beautiful baby girl!:)
