Our New Miracle


I can't even believe it. Every new baby seems like such a little miracle, but I had never actually witnessed a birth until yesterday watching Jessica. I was able to be there through it all, and it was such an emotionally intense experience. Jessica went natural, which was really important to her and we're all so happy it worked out that way. I was amazed at Jessica's control. She was so admirable. I am hesitant to even blog about this because it was just such a sweet and spiritual time. I'm usually okay at finding words for my feelings, but I don't even know what to say. I'm so grateful for the chance I have to be an aunt to yet another one of God's beautiful children. I'm so grateful Jessica and Tyler allowed me to be there for the special experience. I'm so grateful she's here all safe and sound and absolutely beautiful.

She is so unbelievably cute! Newborns usually look squished and alien, but gosh she just looks adorable! Yay for Tyler and Jessica!

I love her cheeks! They remind me of someone else when she was born. She is a beauty. You are one lucky girl to be able to have so many newsies around.
