Finally...some pictures

This is what it looks like to be in labor with an almost 9 lb baby.....well not hard labor yet.

My mom was there for the birth.

My first time holding my girl...I'm smiling because I finally have no sensation.  You can kinda see how swollen her face is here (especially her lips).  Full birth story coming...


One of my favorites...

Meeting Grandma...


I am so thankful for God's blessings.  How wonderful to hold BOTH of my girls.

Kisses for baby sister (yes, I'll do a post just about the girls meeting)...

Getting some lovin' from daddy.  Sometimes a girl just needs a little reassurance.


Meeting Grandpa (my dad)...


Meeting Grandma (Patrick's mom)...


Awww....
FYI....I came home Monday morning.  Camille is nursing like a champ and doing all the other things newborns are supposed to do.  My pain level is much better than I expected.  I'm trying not to let myself do too much.

How adorable! I love the picture of you w/ Adeline and Camille. Glad you're all home and doing well!

I had to smile at the picture of Patrick reassuring Adeline...it'll be a scene repeated, no doubt. I had to keep reminding myself that as much as Natalia LOVED her new baby brother, her little world had just been turned upside down.

Take it easy as much as you can. Wish I lived closer...love ya!

I do love the pictures of Camille, but that picture of Adeline and Patrick is such a beautiful, intimate moment between Daddy and his little girl. It reminded me of some we have with Dave and the girls.

I can't believe I am this behind on blog reading! I've really got to get my stuff together. I have loved reading all about the birth and seeing the pictures, though. What a miraculous thing the birth of a child! So happy for you all!!!!
