We are so excited to announce the birth of our first child, Gabriel David! We are overjoyed with his arrival and cannot even express how in love we are with our son! He was born on his due date, November, 25, 2016 at 10:44am, weighing 7 lbs 8 oz, and 21.5 inches long. He has a full head of hair and looks exactly like his daddy! Labor and delivery went really well and we are both healthy and recovering well. Perhaps one day, I’ll write up his birth story and share it here. I have to give a shout out to my husband, Nate too. I could not have gotten through the birth of our son without his unwavering support and love. He seriously blew me away with how incredible he was throughout the entire labor and delivery process.
We are so excited to become mommy and daddy to our little miracle! I’ve heard many times that you don’t know how much capacity you have to love until you’ve held that baby in your arms…and that is so true!! I have found myself many times this first week in a pool of tears over how much I love him! If you want to read a little more about our road to become parents, click here.
Now that we are home, settled, and learning to do life as a family of three (plus #pennylanethechihuahua), we are officially on maternity leave! We are so grateful for all the texts, emails, phone calls, and love we have received thus far. We are truly surrounded by the best friends and family in the world!
I am also thankful to you, my loving clients and blog readers! I wouldn’t be able to do what I love without you, so thank you! Please know that I am turning my email off on my phone and will only be checking emails 1-2 times a week for a little bit. I promise I will get back to you, it just may not be at the lightning speed you’re used to 😉 I’m sure you understand!
I’ll leave you with a few photos of sweet baby Gabe. <3
