Miss Megan is Here . . .

Our beautiful baby girl, Megan Grace Valentine, arrived at 8:44 am on May 17th weighing 8 lbs. 5 oz. She looks just like her daddy and I think I might see a hint of her daddy's dimples, too.

There are no words to describe the love and joy she's already brought into our home in the short time that she's been here.
Before Meggie was born, I told my husband that he wouldn't be able to remember life without her once she's here and yesterday, over lunch at our favorite diner where we had our first date, he told me he now understands what I meant by that.

This was taken a few minutes before I was wheeled into the operating room for my c-section.

Thank you, God, for this incredible gift you have bestowed upon us. There are truly no words other than "Amazing Grace" which is how she got her middle name.

Many blessings ~ Wendy

She is absolutely beautiful. Congrats to you all. I promise, I will get over to see you. I am dealing with a lot of knee pain right now and trying not to put a lot of pressure on it.
