It is 11:57 pm, July 10th 2010. I have been awake for 40 hours. I have sent emails with no attachments and photo albums with one picture- a not so flattering one at that. The screen moves in front of my face. But to my left is my husband and to my right, my little girl. I cannot articulate what she means to me, except to say that I do not want to sleep because I want to look at her. I do not want to stop nursing her because it means I would have to put her down. I want to soak every bit of her in, still in utter disbelief that God gave her to me. After I heal and rest, I will make something semi-coherant to describe July 9, 2010. But until then, some photos of the greatest gifts in my life.


  1. Keri! I have such joy this morning for you. I am praying for you not to miss one thing in the hospital and this first few weeks. She is adorable and your heart is so precious. I am humbled to see God break your heart in such a huge way. I love your new family of 3 and I look forward to raising these to 2010 babies together!

  2. Keri - I love her and you! I can't wait to watch her grow and read all of the amazing things that I know you are going to write about sweet Mary Kate!

  3. She is precious and so perfect! I can't wait to get my hands on her!!! Love you so much - you did good, mama!

  4. ahhhh!!! i'm so happy to see that she's hear and healthy and that you are doing well! can't wait for more updates. congratulations on your precious little gift!
