A Tiny Welcome.

World, meet my perfect daughter.

Never have I been so in awe of something in my entire life.

My amazing sister in law came to the hospital, with the rest of our family, and took pictures for me and I will be FOREVER grateful. These pictures just capture everything perfectly. It was such a special, surreal moment for me to look around the room and see all of our loved ones surrounding my new little family of three. I took a mental picture and I hope I never forget it.

Pure love.

I was SO incredibly happy my mom was able to come and be there with me through everything. It was her first time EVER in Florida and it's so expensive to fly here. Holland's labor was quite the process (another post) and I was so terrified, even though I tried so hard to keep a brave, tough face. My mom is the only one who is always able to see right through it, with no hints. So I'm so thankful she was part of my team and there to hold my hand. Thanks mom. Always been there, always will be. You're the best friend a mommy could have. (How backwards does that sound? Haha)

Perfect doesn't even begin to describe her. I'm so proud, happy, and humbled. We are all over the moon. Everything people say about holding a baby in your arms for the first time is true. We love you more than you will ever begin to guess baby girl. I have been waiting for you my entire life and I can't believe you are finally here. I feel so blessed to be your mommy.
