Well, our sweet Cassidy Grace is finally here! She’s only a week old and we’re already totally and completely smitten (of course, we were smitten at first glance!). She has my hair (red!), eyes and smile, and Joel’s dimples (yay!) and cheeks. She’s just gorgeous! I went in to be induced last Tuesday morning, but ended up having to have an emergency c-section (our girl was just too big!) and Cassidy was born at 8:09 PM. Of course that’s the shortened version and maybe I’ll write the long version soon, but for now all you need to know is that SHE’S HERE! And she’s absolutely perfect…

We were in the hospital 4 days and had a wonderful experience there. Cassidy had so many visitors and wonderful presents! Everybody’s doing great now, although it’s a big adjustment and there’s lots of learning as we go! Even though we’re completely sleep-deprived, Joel and I are the happiest we’ve ever been and our little girl is the greatest blessing we could have ever received!

Thank you, everyone, for your prayers, support and encouragement throughout these nine months. It’s been an incredible journey and my life will forever be changed in the best possible way. I can’t wait to watch this little girl grow (just as long as she does it as slowly as possible!) 🙂




  1. Congratulations – what a blessing! She is beautiful!

  11. Wow! Did you just give birth in those pictures? Because you don’t look like it! All of my post birth pics look like I just walked away from a train wreck!
    Don’t apologize for baby updates. Most of us mamas absolutely LIVE for them. And I’m a birth story junkie! I cry every time.
    I love that your husband almost fainted! I remember the first time mine disappeared for a while. When he came back he said he wasn’t feeling well. He needed some fresh air! I was SO mad! Oh YOU’RE not feeling well? Wait a minute… how much pitocin are they giving you? Has the baby’s head been grinding into you’re tailbone every 90 seconds for the last 10 hours?! Gee I think I’ll take a break and get some fresh air too!
    But look at the picture of him holding his little girl. Soooo sweet! What a beautiful family! Thanks for sharing!
