Andie Jean is here!

5.11.13
A very special day.  The best day of our lives.

Andie Jean arrived at 2:47pm weighing 5 pounds, 15 ounces and 18.5 inches long.

We are overwhelmed with LOVE for this little girl.  I can't wait to share her little birth story (she came  early, but is healthy, yay!) and lots more pictures.  But right now, we are just soaking in all of this time with her.  I wish time would stand still.  The days are passing too quickly!!  I have fallen even more in love with my husband.  He is the most helpful, loving, and generous man - and watching him become a father is a moment I will never forget.  This little girl has made our dreams come true.  We are abundantly blessed.

Here's a few pictures!
 Admiring our girl.  Family of 3!
 Taking her home from the hospital - very excited!
 Daddy and Pops giving her the first bath!
Our sweet girl - the photographer at the hospital took some great newborn pics (this was on a cell phone!)

Thank you to everyone for the sweet comments, texts, phone calls, etc.  It has meant so much to us to be surrounded by so many loving people.  We really appreciate all the love!
