Brielle Joy Is Born

February 28, 2015

Our firstborn, Brielle Joy was born on February 21, 2015 at 7:36pm.  She was 6 pounds 12 ounces and 20.5 inches long.  A week after her due date of February 14th, Jess’ was induced and had a pretty quick labor and delivery…laboring for about 6.5 hours.   The weather outside was definitely frightful, as it was snowing the entire day.  We had a bit of a rougher time on the other side of things…jaundice, fainting, and coming up with her name…but are SO happy to have our little girl here with us.

Baby Girl’s Nursery

February 6, 2015

We are going to be welcoming our little girl any day now, so what better time than to share her nursery with you?  We went with a neutral gray so that we don’t have to repaint if we have another child one day.  And we’re using pink, yellow and teal as accent colors.  To the left on the ladder made by her Uncle Sam and Aunt Megan, we have Jessica’s farm baby blanket made by her Grandma Pat and baby girl’s baby blanket made her Grandma Greta.  We also have the cutest giraffe by her crib that we bought and transported back here from Prague which was the very first thing we bought when we found out we were pregnant. We love how it turned out.
