Annabelle Catherine joined our family via VBA2C on Tuesday October 9th at 7:20 am. She weighed in at only 5 lbs 9 oz...see there was a reason she hung out in there...and was 19 inches long. It was a long, long journey and we are so happy she is here with us now!

What a nice beginning.

Well begun is half done.

Ahhh...you are so sweet. Having support here helped me a ton too. That's one of the reasons I wanted to keep it going though...so other mama's like us could see we are doing what's best for our little ones! You rock mama!

Thanks mama! I've started the birth story, but oh man I think it'll be a long one! There are so many elements to my journey! I can't wait to get through it though so I can see what I truly accomplished and can share my story to inspire other mamas!
