June 23, 2009

It's coming. 
Now? 
The baby's coming. 
And how! 
I see a nose. 
I see a curl. 
It's a healthy, perfect, 
lovely, little...

GIRL!

That's right folks, it really was a girl after all (some had their doubts). She was born the 23 day of June (the same day as Justin's sister, Rachel). Lets give a warm welcome to the newest member of our family...

I was able to drive down to Salem, Utah to visit. This baby is even more precious in real life, but here are a few more pictures from her first days on Earth.
