Introducing...

Avery Grace Moortgat

August 16, 2009

9 lbs. 12 oz.

1:04 PM

21 1/4" long

Yes, she is finally here, and we are all so blessed to have her!

Delivery was wonderful and easy. I suffered no pain (thank goodness for epidurals!), and did not even have to push-she literally slid out on her own! What a wonderful experience for what I know will be my last baby...

We are all getting used to a new routine around here, but things are going well so far. I want to get some better photos of her, but for now, here are a few...

Gazing into Daddy's eyes:

Rocking with Mommy at the hospital:

Sleeping in the swing after the drive home (the dress we brought her home in is one from when I was a baby):

Being adored by her brothers:

Okay, well, time for me to go engage in some more baby girl adoration... I will post again soon with more photos!

I bought your book a couple weeks ago and devoured it! All your pages are so inspiring.

Then I checked out your blog and realized that you were about ready to give birth so have been checking in.

Avery Grace is gorgeous with those big eyes! And your boys look like they will be perfect big brothers.

Love the recycled dress from your babyhood!
