Heading out early to Starbucks to read, pray, and eat breakfast before induction
My good friend Cayla was able to be at the birth and was a wonderful support throughout. She was also our birth photographer. I'm so grateful she could experience this with me.
My good friend Dawnielle was also able to be at the birth and was an incredible support throughout--I got tons of back and head massages from her; so helpful!
I LOVE this photo because this is moments before delivery, I was in gnarly pain and Dawnielle was just whispering truth to me, saying over and over, "You did it! She is almost here! God is so good! Has is answering our prayers!"
This was the first moment I held Kate. I was just saying over and over, through dry tears, "THANK YOU, Jesus, THANK YOU!" I couldn't muster any watery tears for some odd reason, but let me tell you, the joy was OVERWHELMING!
My FANTASTIC-AMAZING-TERRIFIC husband! This labor and delivery would not have been possible without his constant companionship, support, truth spoken, prayers, encouragement, hand holding, feet massaging, and outpouring of LOVE.
I am one blessed woman.
