Our daughter...

On August 15 at 8:21 am, our sweet daughter was born! What an amazing day!

Emerson Kate Reed

Our sweet Emerson Kate was born August 15 at 8:21 am. She was 8.5 lbs and 20 1/2 inches long. What a beautiful blessing! Here are some pics of her first few days thanks to my phone! Pics from camera coming soon!

The morning before her arrival.... goodbye belly!

Prepping for delivery.....

Sweet Emmy Kate....

Big brother meeting his sister for the first time!

My friend, Stacy, who also delivered G, helped bring this sweet baby into the world! The hospital also had a sibling cake for G - he loved how special the day was for him too! And Hans - no words at how helpful this guy is...we make a great team :)

Going home - gotta do the big bows!

G helping to feed his sister! He was so proud!

Now this sweet girl is one week old, and she is a pretty chilled out baby! She has a nice routine down so far, and we are LOVING being a family of 4. Special thanks to Hans and my mom for making this transition such a beautiful one....I don't know where I'd be without you both!

Love you, Emmy Kate! You have brightened our lives more than you know - thank you God for answered prayers and beautiful babies!

New camera!!!!

We finally got a nice camera - just in time for Emmy :) take good pics of her nursery and someone's new specs! I was also able to play around with some photo apps on my computer (Hans and G got me a Chromebook for my bday, and I am just now understanding all the cool things you can do!). Here's a little preview of it all!

Check out this cool dude! I was so worried about his eyes, and it turns out mommy was right! He did great at his exam, and we determined he's farsighted. He has been doing SO good at wearing them! Made me a little sad watching him look around like everything was so new - wish I took him earlier! No more squinting for this munchkin!

I may post more nursery pics - I just wanted to play around with my collage apps! This is fun :)

Our weekend!

We are getting closer to Emmy's arrival so we are trying to squeeze in some time as a family of 3! We spent Saturday at Noah's Ark pool - a favorite summer spot! It was a fun day :)

Dad took G to Jackson's birthday at Cosmic Jump - Ryan and G had a great time being silly!
Sunday night was dinner out - love these boys! We celebrated some big work news for Hans! I'm so proud of him and his new adventure - he will now be working in a different department at work. In fact, it's the same department my dad worked in for many years. Hans is such a hard worker; we love him so much :) Way to go!!!!!!
