Davie’s Birthday Photos

Daddy’s still in shock.  We both really had boy vibes the whole pregnancy.  We’re overjoyed to meet our little girl!

PopPop  has made up a new lullaby for each grandchild.  He’s finally getting to sing lullaby #3!

My dad singing to Davie

Such a good breast feeder, she latched right on!

Davie has what they call a “stork bite” – a litt;e bruise on her forehead where she was stuck sideways in the birth canal for a while.

Daddy has already become a pro-burper, although sometimes he dozes on the job.

Nana and Davie are makin’ faces at each other

Cayle couldn’t wait to hold his little cousin!  I can’t believe how grown up he is.  I remember when he was newborn I stayed up all night one night just to hold him.  Andon was fastinated but was happy just to look at her!  My ex-sister-in-law Alison came, too, and she was super supportive and kind.  I’m so glad she came.

This has been the most remarkable experience of my life so far.  I’m stronger and weaker than I ever knew.  My heart is bigger than I could’ve imagined.  My own ego can be so much smaller than I ever imagined, and it’s wonderful.  I love my parents and my husband more than ever.  Joy has a whole new meaning.  Happy Birthday, my baby girl.

    OMG!! She is so perfect!! Congratulations, and great job. W has a storkbite on her forehead and over both eyelids and though I want it to go away eventually, I absolutely love it because we call it an angel kiss and it looks like her sister in heaven gave her a kiss before sending her our way.

    I am so very happy for you, I love her name, I love that she surprised you by being a she, I love that you’re enjoying her so much! 🙂

    Welcome to the world, gorgeous girl!

      Thank you so much, Christina! I love her little stork bite, too!
      I think of you every day when Nana (my mom) breaks out a new outfit for my little fashionista! Davie’s been home for 5 days and she hasn’t worn the same outfit twice yet! You know, I would never wear pink or ruffles or bows when I was a little girl. And now I just can’t get enough of them! 🙂

      I LOVE the pic you posted of you breastfeeding your sweet baby boy. I just had to take one, too! He’s so cute with his little mittens on, totally in heaven while he eats!

    Lovely pictures! Our twins also have angel kisses on their foreheads and a little on one eyelid. Should go away w/in a few months, though. Enjoy your sweetie!

      I’m glad you stopped by to say hi and you all are doing well! I’ve thought of you since I brought Davie home. I just can’t fathom doing all of this with two babies! You’re a supermom!

      Thanks! I love that her name has meaning to us and that I got to name her after my dad. I hope we get the chance to have a boy in the future so we can name him after Troy’s dad!
