Eliza is one of the most beautiful pregnant women I’ve known.  Seriously… she should  be a model for the experience of maternity!  Aaron asked me to do some photos with them as a sweet birthday present to Eliza, and I was more than happy to oblige.

I am in love.  I am in love with a 6-day-old baby girl!  Wendy Rose was born on a Sunday morning, a stunning 8lbs 14oz, practically perfect in every way.  I got to meet her just in time for her first bath… and it was so beautifully evident how much her parents adore her already.  Enjoy some photos of day 2 of Wendy’s life.

I love when dads get to do skin-to-skin with infants.  It’s such a wonderful way for them to bond, and it warms up the baby after a bath, too!

On August 8, Mike and I celebrated five years of marriage.  FIVE YEARS!  In some ways, it has felt like such a long time– we’ve lived in two countries, been in three grad programs, and held 5 jobs between the two of us.  We’ve gone from living in a Mission House to an apartment to becoming homeowners, and we brought our little Noah home to this house.  That’s a whole lot of stuff to pack in five years!

But somehow, I look at pictures from when we were engaged and remember how I felt so vividly:  hope, excitement, wonder, anticipation, fear… there was so much unknown, and I didn’t care.

There is still so much of our future that’s unknown, but I am thankful for our five years.  I’m thankful for date nights and family days and awesome friends who help us along the way.  Last Friday, we celebrated on one of my favorite days of the year. I don’t get this excited for Valentine’s Day, or even for the Fourth of July– August 8 is special to me and I hope we get to enjoy it with each other for many years to come.

Here’s to August… here’s to us.

As we wait for baby M to arrive (and she’s due very soon!), I thought it would be fitting to share some photos from her little shower we had a while back.  Katie (Kimmi’s sister) and I hosted it at Fullsteam, which is one of Durham’s favorite hangouts. It was an awesome celebration, complete with strawberry cake and corn hole!  Katie even crafted a fantastic trivia (with lots of twists and turns in the questions) that was super creative.  Guests also had a chance to guess when baby M will make her debut by initialing on a chalkboard calendar.  We’ll see who wins that one!  (I clearly didn’t, but hey, it’s ok…)

It was so special to see all the love from folks who drove for hours or even flew hundreds of miles to love on these guys.

These are two of my dearest friends in the world, and I can’t wait to love their newest family member.
