I hope you’ll forgive me for slacking off on the recipe posts for a minute, because I cannot get enough of my new little love bug! We’ve waited a long time for her to join our family and she’s finally here! Look at her perfect face! Can you blame me one bit for choosing to snuggle her instead of cook!?
Evie Savannah was born in St. George last Friday on May 11, at 1:50 p.m. She weighed 8 lbs., 7 oz., and was 20” long. She was released from the hospital on Sunday afternoon and we arrived home that night. She is the perfect baby and our little miracle. We simply CANNOT get enough of her. Our hearts feel as if they are overflowing with love!
There’s no doubt that we are proud and VERY happy parents. I feel like I am living one of my most important purposes and dreams as a mama. Beau turned to me the other day and said, “I love being a daddy.” Between the two of us, she rarely gets put down. We believe you can’t spoil a baby or child with too much love.
We love our baby girl. Oh, how we love her! We love to snuggle her, we love to feed her, we love to change her diapers, we love to get up with her in the night, and we love to just look at her for hours. We are mesmerized and completely in love.
We love Evie’s birth mother more than words can say. Among many things she is brave, strong, and simply a beautiful person inside and out. We hope and pray that Evie acquires those wonderful traits! We are excited to have an open relationship with this beautiful woman, as well as with her family. We’ve missed them since we’ve been home and we are thrilled to make a visit to see them soon. Evie’s birth mama will be graduating from high school and we can’t wait to share in the celebrations. I think we’re all counting down the days until we can be with each other again. It’s impossible to express how much love, honor and respect we hold for Evie’s birth family! We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect relationship with Evie’s birth mother and birth family, nor could we ask for a more perfect and beautiful child for us. There is so much love around us we sometimes think our hearts might just burst!
