d day

My labor and delivery was a dream. I can't sing that blessed epidural's praises enough. Seriously, whoever came up with that drug should have some sort of statue built for them in their honor. I would totally go visit it and get my picture taken with it. Just sayin'.
All joking aside, I actually sing our Lord's praises far above anything for so wonderfully orchestrating that entire day. My experience was beautiful, and Ruthie's entrance or rather, exit, was pain free and magnificent.

... and Jess were all there for the delivery, and it was so much fun to have them in the room.
You can see a picture here from just a few short weeks ago with the roles reversed!

Trey got to deliver both his first AND his second daughter, and it was so neat to watch.
I guess you could say that he's a very "hands on" kind of Daddy.
Literally.
Dr. Beck, of course, was there to supervise. :)

"Smitten" is an appropriate caption for this picture.

You can see my picture with Lael like this here, along with our pictures with her in the hospital in November '09. It was WAY back in the day so I really had to search my blog archives to find that post. ;)

And yes, we were all pretty surprised at the amount of hair that she has. Although, she does get it honest.

Megan captured the event on video and Jess clicked away with the camera to seize every precious moment.

We praise God for a healthy, precious, second daughter. He has been merciful to us, and we are delighted to now be a family of four.
More to come, of course :)...

  5. How did I not realize that you are from Greenville, SC?!?!?!?! I guess I just never paid attention. I'm right down the road in Hodges/Greenwood, SC!!! Ruthie is just precious and you look amazing for just having a baby! Of course, I think you always look amazing.
