The Sweetest Thing I've Ever Baked Up...

As many of you know, I gave birth to my sweet baby girl, Emily Grace, on October 9th.  I may be a bit biased, but I think she's pretty perfect.  :)

I'll spare you the details of my labor and delivery...let's just say I've declared Emily my only child due to the experience.  Everyone says I'll eventually change my mind...we'll see.  ;)

For now, I'll just focus on savoring every moment with my little baby.  Well, mostly every moment.  I'll admit I wasn't feeling too chipper in the middle of last night when, despite my every effort, she would not lay down and go to sleep.  I guess my mom would say it's payback for how I was as a baby: fine if you're rocking/holding me, upset when laid down.  And diapers...ohhhh, the diapers.  She is only 2 1/2 weeks old and Jordan & I have already changed so many diapers that we could probably change one in our sleep...oh wait, I am half asleep many times when I'm changing them.  I've almost forgotten what real sleep feels like.  Attention grandmas and grandpas!! - COME BACK!!!  lol

With all that being said, look at this face:

Every bit of what we do is worth it because of this sweet baby girl that God has blessed us with.  I love her so much!!  Emily, I am so proud to be your mommy!

On a "blog" note, I noticed when I began writing this post that I haven't blogged since late August...yikes!!  I'm sorry for my hiatus.  I guess that's what being at the end of your 3rd trimester, and then being a new mommy, can do to ya!  I will try to post more as we get ourselves into a better routine.  Thanks readers!
