From the beginning...

I know it has taken me a while to update the blog, but finally, I'm able to sit down and organize the hundreds of photos that were taken! I have been busy cuddling, feeding, and doting on our precious little girl. She is such a good baby, and we are enjoying every single minute of her.
Here are some of my favorite pictures from our stay at the hospital. I will post more soon!

If you're wondering why we didn't make it to our induction date it's because my water broke early Tuesday morning, and we headed to the hospital! It was so exciting! Megan was already at our house, and I made the call to my mom and Jessica ASAP!

Our last picture together with me pregnant.
They began the Pitocin and eventually gave me my epidural (what an amazing drug). I was able to chill out while we waited for things to progress. It didn't take very long because we were ready to start pushing around 4:00 that afternoon! She was born at 4:39 pm.
My mom, Megan, and Jess were all there to witness the birth! It was such a sweet time and a wonderful celebration in that room. The nurses called them the paparazzi!

One of Trey's requests was that he could deliver the baby, and the our doctor happily agreed to let him! Here he is getting ready!

He did such a good job pulling her out! It was amazing and a moment in time that we will never forget. He brought his own daughter into the world!

Here she is getting all cleaned up!

First moments with Mommy after getting checked out

Oh, I love her!

And I love him!!

Here's Trey giving her her first bath.

Finally, I got her back all safe and sound in my arms after her bath and check ups. Here I am changing her first diaper.

Thank you, Jess for being there for everything! We wouldn't have had it any other way! Jess was our master videographer/photographer in the delivery room!

All the girls :)

  1. She's gorgeous! Congratulations to the Ingram and Richardson families! Such an amazing blessing! (As a side note-Way to go Trey! Chad wouldn't get any closer to "delivering" than standing at my head.)

  2. Brings tears to my eyes just reading this! So sweet and such an amazing thing- childbirth. She is so adorable and I'm very impressed that Trey was able to deliver her! Such a sweet moment for him. So happy for you both.

  3. Aw, Kelli... This is the sweetest post in the world. I may have teared up a little bit ;)
    You look beautiful and Lael definitely looks like you... she is so lucky! Congratulations again to you and Trey... John and I are so happy for ya'll!

  4. Oh, Kelli what a joy she will be to you and your family.

    I know that your mother is having a wonderful time with her. She now has a new job, being a grandmother and it is the best. Tell her I said to have fun.. And keep the new pictures coming when you can. Laurie Keesey
