The day finally came! A week ago we were blessed with the birth of our fourth child.

The morning began with a doctor appointment. Around lunch time I felt the contractions coming on. Since I got to the hosptial too late with my last pregnancy, we left for the hospital mid-afternoon. I didn’t want to miss my epidural opportunity this time. Our little girl, Paisley Joy, was born at 6:34 pm. Everything went so well, and God’s timing was perfect. We feel so blessed to have a new, healthy little girl. 

Leading up to the big day, I was designing the birth albums of our other kids. One day, Landon was watching me work and saw the images of the other births. He asked if he could watch this baby “be pushed out”. When the day came, we asked him if he still wanted to come to the hospital with us, and he said yes. He got to witness the delivery and helped daddy cut the cord. Afterwards he told me, “Good job Mom… You didn’t even cry.”   

We have been having a great time capturing her early days. Stay tuned!

    So cute and fun!!! I love it when they are so sleepy and flexible that you can do all that to them and they don’t cry or wake up!!! What a cute pose!!! You too Haley!!! I’m sooooo glad it wasn’t fashionable to take pictures of ourselves when I had my babies. I could never look as cute as you do pregnant, Haley!!!
