Delivery Day!


7/11 Certainly was a lucky day for us! We were scheduled to induce labor on Tuesday and due to an influx in people going into labor the night before we got bumped to Friday 7/11. It was a bit strange to go back to our normal schedules Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday but it was well worth the wait.

We checked into the hospital at 7am. Here is my last pic with you in my tummy. Super cute:)

Hospital selfie that we sent to big brother!

 Your Daddy is not a fan of the hospital. He gets antsy and does random things like climb up on chairs to mess with the TV. He also managed to fit in 2 naps. Such a tough day for him:)

You made your debut at 3:59 pm weighing in at 8 lb 15 oz (92 percentile) and 21 1/4 inches.

It was love at first site thats for sure!

First post to sister

This is my very first post to you baby sister! (don't worry I will start calling you by name once we announce it).

For the past 2 and half years I have been writing to your big brother and documenting all of our wonderful memories with him. Now it is is time to start writing to both of you.

First I will start out by saying you have the best big brother a gal could ask for! He is so excited for you to arrive and gives you hugs and kisses in my tummy everyday.

Below is a quick recap of our journey so far with you....

-Found out we were pregnant with you in November 2014. We had been trying for a few months and when a test finally came back positive I ran into the room crying and me Daddy and Brox all hugged and talked about our new growing family

-Found out you were a girl in February 2014. You were stubborn and didn't cooperate on our first try so we had to go back for another sonogram before they could tell that you were for sure a girl. When we found out we posted and texted the below pic that we had taken a few weeks prior and brought home huge pink balloons and a pink sucker for Brox.

In early June your Yaya hosted a luncheon to celebrate you. It was at my favorite restaurant in town, The Wildflower Cafe. You got tons of clothes and goodies.

In mid June at 36 weeks pregnant I finally decided to take a belly pic in case you want to see it one day.

In late June my closets girlfriends hosted a sprinkle for you. We have been friends since kindergarten and have over 25 years of friendship. I hope and pray that you have lifelong girlfriends just like me. It is so important to have that core group of childhood friends that you can turn to for anything and pick up right where you left off even if you go months between talking. Love these ladies!

Your nursery is ready, carseat installed, bags packed. Now we just wait for your debut!

Red White and Bike Parade

We had so much fun at the first annual Red White and Bike parade. We got your trike all decorated and then we met downtown to ride through the historic district of Ennis. You won the judges award. Not sure what that means but you got to get you picture taken as a winner:) We love our small town and all of these great activities.

Swim Lessons

 You had your first round of swimming lessons with Miss Lindsey (who happens to be one of my closest friends of 25 years) The first few days were rough. You whined and asked for mommy the whole class. Then I bribed you with Bubba's BBQ and you did a complete 180. You loved going to class and did what Miss Lindsey told you to do. You jumped in, floated on your back and were able to hold you breath under water. I was a very proud Mommy!

Fun at the Ennis Farmer's Market

 Swim time with Daddy!

Father's Day

 Fun filled Father's Day complete with donuts and pizza making. You got Daddy an adorable coffee mug with cute pics of the two of you on it. He loved it and you were so excited to give it to him.

I would like to say you are a mama's boy but its pretty much a 50/50 split between me and Daddy. He loves you to the moon and back and we are so lucky to have such a loving, hands on Dad in our lives.
