When 3 became 4...

Thank you so much for your prayers for our little family and your sweet comments on here! Y'all, my heart has filled to overflowing. Completely full. I don't even know the "captions" to write along with these pictures. Mitch and I are so grateful to God for the day of utter joy when He brought Ivy into this world. 

Here we are walking into the birthing center with the sunrise on July 5th, our sweet Ivy
love's birthday! 

This picture just makes me laugh :) ...Long story

And here she is... our first glimpse!!! Love at first sight. This is my darling doctor who came to deliver her while on vacation AND she informed me that morning that it was her birthday too! She is a total sweetheart. 

Tears, tears, tears!!! Our precious girl is here and healthy!! 

Beautiful and strong! She received a 9 on her apgar score. 

She looks SO much like her big sissy's newborn pictures... I am going to have to do a little side-by-side comparison :) 


The rest of these speak for themselves... 

Nons and her grand-baby girl number 2 :)

Boo taking in the sweetness of Miss Ivy

My sweet parents have cared for Scarlett and served our little family so generously over the last week... Oh mom and dad I love you! 

 And the days keep getting sweeter... 

Thank you SO much for rejoicing with us!
