Becca - Day 12

In a way it's flown by. In another, it really hasn't. Becca is twelve days old! She has changed so much since the day she was born.
We are so enjoying getting to know our baby girl! We can already see her personality peeking through!
We are amazed at how perfect she is. Knit together by the Lord in the most wonderful way. We are so grateful for her and that God gave us this treasure that we truly don't deserve!
Becca has been doing amazingly well.....she is doing 4 and 5 hour stretches of sleep at night which is amazing!
She had her first doctors appointment on Wednesday, and she is doing wonderfully! She was 8 lbs. 15 oz., so getting right back up to her birth weight.
Nursing is going fabulously well....and I am so extremely grateful! Becca has taken to it super well, and now we are a great team. :)

And of are some cute pictures of our precious one!

Welcome Becca Lyn

On Monday, August 8 at 4:12pm, we welcomed our baby girl into our arms! Becca weighed 9 pounds, 2 ounces, and was 21.5 inches long.  

We finally got into the hospital on Friday, August 5, and started the induction process on Saturday. Finally on Monday, having exhausted all our options and nothing progressing any further, a c-section was what needed to happen.

Although that wasn't in our "original plan," God really gave me the confidence to say "let's get her out." He gave us both amazing peace about it that didn't come from ourselves. It could only have been from Him. 

Yup....going into that operating room was one of the scariest things...especially since Mitchell couldn't come in until I was all prepped. And that took awhile. They were having trouble getting me numb, which meant they would have to put me under. And that would mean Mitchell couldn't come in at all. But thankfully, just in time, the epidural took full affect. In just a few minutes, Becca was out!

The moment I saw her for the first time was one of the most amazing moments of my life. Holding her up against me, staring at her little face... And sharing this indescribable moment with the love of my life, thinking, "it doesn't get much better than this!" I didn't care about anything else in the world than those two. Us. Family.  

It seems so surreal that she is actually here, and that she is actually mine!

She's almost here

After months of waiting, we are finally days away from meeting our precious daughter. We are about to hold her in our arms for the first time. To see her precious face and wonder who she looks the most like. I just can't wait for that moment of seeing her for the first time. There will be tears of happiness and unbelief that she is finally here and the waiting is over.

Well the waiting is almost over, because a date has been set for induction. We go in tomorrow night. Please be praying for everything to go smoothly! We would really appreciate your prayers.

Here are probably some last pregnancy photos... My sister took them a few weeks ago.
