Happy Friday! It’s been a whirlwind this month, filled with fun projects left and right. Earlier this week, I shared an inside look into my daughter’s nursery. And today, I get the chance to open the doors to my home to show you how we did things this holiday season. When The Avery Grace invited me to participate in the Holiday Home Tour, I was more than excited to join alongside some incredible bloggers and businesses.
And just like that, we’re a family of 4…
Monday, November 16, 2016 is a day we will cherish forever! Cadence Rae Howard was welcomed into the World by a very proud big brother, and a mom & dad completely overwhelmed with happiness. It is a day I will never forget.
My favorite moments:
I was on the operating table (she was born via C-section) and the doctor says to Blake, “Okay dad, stand up… this is it” – they lifted her out, and everyone in the OR gushed “oh my gosh, look at all that blonde hair.” I looked over at Blake and he had the biggest smile on his face. The anesthesiologist blotted the tears rolling down my face. My heart couldn’t take it! And she looked exactly like her Daddy!
My sweet Haden walking into the room to meet her for the first time. With his new role as big brother (and his Mickey Mouse in tow),”Baby sister” he shouted and climbed into my lap. At that moment, I realized a mothers heart is made to expand over and over and over.
Thank you Courtnee Murphy Photography for documenting these special moments.
