Life began when I saw your face.










She's here.

Please meet Miss Elodie, born March 29th at 11:20am.

Friends, I will tell you all about it, soon. For now, there are not enough minutes in the day to peel me away.

So true, how life begins when you see your child for the very first time, and many other times in the years to follow.

May you pass along your amazing inward and outward beauty and zeal for life to this sweet little girl.

Blessings,
Melissa

All the best to you 3!! The best babybook I ever read - and I've read PLENTY - The Happiest Baby on the Block, by Dr. Harvey Karp - the 5 s's will keep her content, and that means happy parents - swaddle, sway, suck, sideways, shushing, replicating the conditions of the womb.
- saved us when our boys had colic. God bless you all!

Lady Jennie said...

I just wanted to add that when my dear daughter was born 7 years ago, I thought, "I finally have a reason for living." It wasn't that I wasn't living before, but it never meant so much to me.

Anonymous said...

Hi- I have been reading your blog because I am also pregnant with a little girl (due any day!!) and wanted to say congratulations! She is perfect. :)

Connie S. said...

Want to know something crazy? I was gone all last week in Orlando for photography workshop stuff...and as I was on my flight home on Saturday I thought, "Oh gosh. I wonder if Aura had her baby yet."
The wonders of the internet-here I am on an airplane thinking about a person I don't even know, wondering and praying for her safe delivery.
Welcome, sweet Elodie- and congrats to the two of you!

Tamara Nicole said...

Jenn said...

Aura, I was lucky enough to find your blog through pinterest this afternoon when I was searching for fashionable maternity clothes...I love your style. I'm sure I will read every single post by the end of the night.

I have 2 children (my son is 7 years old and my daughter just turned 2). We thought we were complete with 2 kids...and then, about a month ago, I woke up with this crazy feeling that I was pregnant. I took the test and sure enough, it was positive. Ever since then, I've been feeling overwhelmed, questioning if I can continue being a good mother while raising 3 kids and just feeling anxious overall. That was until, I saw this post of newborn Elodie. She's so beautiful and so precious and delicate in these pics that I wonder how I could have ever been scared of my little one to be. I know this post is older but it sure made my day and made me feel at ease about doing this one last time. Thanks for sharing, Aura! You made my day.
