.Due Date.

Today has been the day I have dreamed of for 9 long months..

it is my due date.

I often imagined what this day would bring..

the heavy anticipation of our baby girl's arrival..

posing for 40 week maternity photos, loading the car with hospital bags, attempting to read and understand my body, giving our dog the extra attention he has been craving, praying and praising God for the miracle He was about to complete, and enjoying being a family of two just a little bit longer..

Today..

I am simply blown away by the works of our Heavenly Father. 

Today instead of preparing for our first baby..

I am here and honored to introduce you to Penelope Layne Miller. 
Our little sweetheart made her surprising arrival on July 1st, 2013 at 9:26pm weighing 6lbs 11oz and measuring 19 3/4in long.

I never imagined my baby girl would be (almost) 1 week old on her due date. 

Today..

I am in love.
I am forever grateful God chose me to be Penny's mommy.

I will try to write soon but first..first, I must sleep :)

  14. Just came on your blog to see if there was a new post even though I saw the announcement on FB. She's so darling Katie! Congratulations again! I hope you're loving every second and enjoying her. It goes so so fast and there's nothing like tiny babies--though bigger babies and crazy toddlers are an awfully lot of fun too. ;-)

  17. One of the easiest means to replica watches atom a affected is by its bright display, or caseback, which
    allowsi you to see the close apparatus of the watch. The absolute McCoy does not accept such a feature, with the barring of louis vuitton replica some best 1930s exhibition models that were never mass-produced.Just as never bogus bright casebacks, it did not bite them either.Genuine models will accept a bland caseback, whilst fakes ability affection engraved logos and other designs. The attenuate exceptions are the pre-1990s ladies' models, which had "Original Rolex Design" or a agnate aberration thereof, engraved on breitling replica the caseback. Another barring is the
    Sea-Dweller display, which has engraved about the outside of the caseback.A absolute Rolex has a 3D hologram-encoded sticker on the caseback. For http://www.turbodemo.co.uk models produced afterwards 2002, a Rolex acme can be beheld on the sticker and it changes patterns if you see it from altered angles. A usually has a alliterative Rolex arrangement printed on it and does not change if beheld from added angles.Keep in omega replica apperception too that Rolex has alien a tiny acme logo categorical assimilate the clear at the breadth about the six o'clock direction afterwards 2002, so this should not be present in beforehand models. This affection may not,however, be applicative to all Rolex watches.
