Update! We had a baby...

Welcome to the world Endry Mae Hawkins!!!
Born May 29, 2012 at 2:27pm weighing 7lb. 10oz. 20.5 inches

We had a wonderful and happy natural labor and delivery and from the time my water broke it was only 12 hours until we met our girl. I was so blessed to have my husband and an amazing doula by my side to get me through the two hours where Endry was turned wrong and labor had stalled. The pain was SO worth the outcome. A happy little baby who was able to look right into my eyes and snuggle up on my chest within seconds of entering the world. God is good!!!

So here are some pictures of our little sweetie over the last few months. And expect a LOT of posts to be about motherhood. And all the things I've learned through trial, error, and advice. What a wonderful job it is to be her momma! Best ever...

Ok, more to come! I will try to get into blogging some tips and regular posts at least once a week.

For now, here's today's lesson: Give you and your baby TIME to be at home together in those first few weeks and couple of months. Your baby is brand new and you are all she knows is safe and happy. Let her be comforted in knowing you will hold her close when she needs you. You will respond to her needs within moments. This trust will last you a lifetime and set your baby up to achieve milestones with bravery and strength!!!

Much love.
See you soon!
