Seven Months Of Ivy

Seven months ago today, I gave birth to Ivy. In my bedroom.


A GIRL!

A DIVA!


I know every part of you.


Better than I know myself.


And even when you're sleeping (like here when Daddy was "watching" you)



I can not get enough.


From your head down to your toes...


You're too good to be true, but you are. You are true, my Ivy LaRue.

  4. She's so precious :) Your husband looks like my husband when he's incharge of the girls (once when I was working from home and a client saw it).

  6. Can't believe it's already been a year since she was kickin' around in that belly of yours while we were kickin' it on the outside at Disney.

    She's such a doll. You're one blessed mama!

  7. Awww! *sniff* That was so beautiful! And you know, in light of what happened with Baby Maddie (just found out about that today) it's so much more important that we hold tight to our children and soak them in as much as we can. Ivy LaRue is blessed to have you! :)

  34. Ha ha ha.... I can relate to the second last one. OI was making dinner last night and Tim was supposed to be watching the wee man - ten minutes later I look over, Ewan is playing by himself, and Tim is Unconscious on the floor next to him. He denies being asleep, but it was a good ten minutes.

    What a precious little girl you have - I hope I have one of those one day!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Honestly, I can't believe it's been seven months. It feels like I just read her birth story. Time goes too fast.

    She's beautiful.
