12:35pm on August 2, 2010 our life's were once again blessed beyond measure and changed forever. Our beautiful daughter, Sarah Katherine entered this world and we all have been touched. She has already been such a blessing to us and it's amazing the amount of intense love that fills my heart. As soon as they laid her on my belly and she took her first breath, it was love at first sight. Isn't it amazing how God fills your heart with so much love to give? It still amazes me even after my third child.
I have so much I want to blog about her birth etc but finding the time right now is so hard. But I do want to share a few (ok a lot) special pictures from her birth day and the several days following.
One last belly pic
Right after birth, cleaning her up
Back in mommy's arms
She was so alert right after birth and just looked at me, such a sweet moment
Our new addition. And I have to say Jim was the best coach throughout the labor and delivery. He never left my side and was such a strong support for me.
The boys meet Sarah
Showing off their Big Brother shirts
Another set of doting grandparents
The Paniagua cousins meet Sarah
She came out rooting and ready to eat! She has been a great nurser which is a huge blessing!
After her first nursery visit
Such a sweet little face
After one of her visits to the nursery for a check up, they brought her back with this pink bow. So sweet!
The boys have been AWESOME with her. So doting and gentle. I was concerned about Luke but he has been so interested and keeps pointing to my belly and says "Baby out". So he gets it and has made the connection. So heartwarming to see their interest in her.
With her Aunt Kristina
Dressed and ready to go home
The car seat seems to swallow her
First family pic at home
Mommy and baby
Admiring the decorations that the kids made for us.
First bath- 4 days old. Jacob loved helping
She liked it when I washed her head
I think she feel asleep while I washed her
Getting some window light therapy, trying to get the jaundice levels to come down
Luke loves holding her. But after about a minute he's all done.
Jacob is so sweet with her and just adores her
I will try to update again soon. You know there are so many more pictures to post and so much I want to say. :)
