Introducing Zoey Grace!

in baby, Zoey's First Year

She’s here!!


I’m thrilled to announce the birth of our daughter, Zoey Grace!!   Zoey was born on October 31st, 2012 at 8:02am, weighing in at 7 lbs 8 oz and 21 inches long.  Jeff and I are over the moon!!  Her name was chosen because “Zoey” means “life” and we feel that her precious life was given to us out of God’s grace to us.  Over and over, God has demonstrated His grace to us by giving us gifts that we don’t deserve and Zoey is a daily reminder of His goodness to us.  We are so thankful for our little girl!

It’s been two weeks since her birth and I still can’t believe that I have a daughter!  Zoey is perfect in every way and I am in just in awe of her.  It’s been a joy getting to know her and a privilege being her mother.  Taking care of a newborn definitely has its challenges and I’ve had my share of meltdowns, but she continues to amaze us every day with her funny faces, ferocious appetite (she has gained almost a pound and a half in the last 2 weeks. At this rate, she will be a 60lb one year old!), and silly noises.  She changes almost every day! Her daddy and I are absolutely in love with her!

I’m going to take a short break from blogging so that I can enjoy her now, but I’ll be back in a little while!

Congratulations! Beautiful name!

Enjoy every single second and don’t stress about the blog. Enjoy that nice newborn smell and those adorable baby noises. My son is four months old and I still stare at him in awe. It’s the best feeling in the world.
