Our Baby Girl is Here!

Friends, I couldn’t wait to share our good news with you!  Our baby girl came early, on February 18th and we got to bring her home on Saturday, which happened to be my birthday!  This is seriously the best birthday present ever! 

6 pounds, 10 ounces   
She is doing so well and is healthy and thriving and very peaceful so far!  Big brother is also smitten and I have to thank our friends and family, who are going above and beyond to be helpful right now, bringing meals and showering us with love.  It’s such a sweet, sweet time in our lives.  
Y’all have been so supportive and encouraging throughout this pregnancy, and I’m truly thankful to be able to share our newest family member with you.  I’m feeling ultra protective and vulnerable right now and just want to keep her close to my chest at all times.  I’m sure we’ll reveal her name in due time, but for now, it’s baby steps for this mama.  I guess it’s all part of the emotional process that goes along with pregnancy and childbirth making me feel like my heart could burst open at any moment and I need to go slow. I’m also recovering, so just taking it easy at home for now and will be back to blogging when I feel up to it (and the drugs wear off! πŸ˜‰  Love you friends!

    Oh, Megan!!! She's perfect! My mom (lucindapdc) told me she saw your post on IG the other day and I was so tempted to break my Lenten promise and log on to sneak a peek (but I didn't!). Seeing her here today is the perfect start to my week – and I am so happy for the opportunity to congratulate you. Take all the time you need…and enjoy, mama.

    Congratulations Megan (and family)! Must be something in the universe making these little ladies in a hurry to join us…my first granddaughter decided she wanted out two days after my daughter's birthday and two weeks early! Enjoy every moment and can't wait to watch her grow along with James…hope you also get some rest, even if only occasionally at first!

    Many congratulations to you and your family, Megan! Found your blog a couple months ago and been following it, so thought I'd finally comment for this occasion (even if it'll get lost with your thousands of other followers are saying the same thing lol!). Just had a baby myself a few months ago so loved seeing your pregnancy fashion and reading about your nursery preparations. I don't have an Instagram (I simply stalk my favorites!) but was checking your page constantly after you posted you went to the hospital early! My little guy came early too.

    And for her to come so close to your birthday!! What a great present indeed! πŸ™‚ I am so excited to hear what name you guys picked out – I know it's gonna be perfect. Enjoy this magical time! Congrats!
