Introducing…

The one…


the only…


the cutie pie, the perfectly sweet baby…


Jayda Grace
7 lbs, 2 ounces
20 inches

Born TUESDAY, Dec. 1 at 8:40 p.m.

(Here’s the BEFORE shot…)


We’re both doing well… I’ve been wrestling with my post-surgery recovery a bit more than usual.

I had a feeling she wanted to be born before we had everything so perfectly timed for Dec. 3.

And it was a full moon…

When I went for my weekly appointment, her heart rate was bouncing around like crazy. My doctor decided we should be safe and go straight to the hospital.

She was born safely by C-section, with no complications. Thank you so much for your prayers!
