1 month old

Our little bird, it's crazy to think that a month has come and gone since your birth! Just seems like yesterday that they placed you in my arms; time is already going by too fast. Your dad and I are so blessed to have you as our little girl and even though we are both still adjusting to being new parents, we wouldn't change a thing! You're absolutely precious and loved so, so much. 

At one month old, Blaykleigh...

   - can just about hold her head up on her own
   - loves to "stand-up" while we hold her in our lap

Now that things are starting to settle down a bit, I have finally found a moment to update our blog! 

On May 30th, 2011 at 3:37PM weighing in at 7 lbs. 7 oz. our bright eyed beautiful jewel from God came into the world! She is the most precious thing I have ever laid eyes on; I honestly don't think I took my eyes off of her for the first few hours of her life. Jason and I have been in awe of her from the moment they first placed her in my arms and words will never be able to express the love we have for her! It's been a little over 2 weeks since she was born yet it feels like she has always been apart of us. We are officially "Mom" & "Dad"to OUR daughter, we are a family of three! 

"Before you were conceived I wanted you. Before you were born I loved you. Before you were an hour old I would die for you.  This is the miracle of life."
