Thinking of my Favy today, and remembing her wedding this past November has me all nostalgic so I had to share this photo, as it's one of my favorites from their wedding! It was crazy being the Matron of Honor and photographer while being almost 7 months pregnant but thanks to Dustin's skill and Jessica and Alex's trust in us, we were able to knock this one out of the park!
Our blue-eyed bug is becoming more and more active each day, she's so expressive and curious - I hope this curiosity follows her throughout her life.
This moment means so much to me, because I had just see the face of the child I'd dreamed of for years, I had heard her first cry, and it was as sweet as I'd hoped it would be. I looked to my husband because I simply couldn't believe that she was here, and I needed confirmation from him, he was as mesmerized as I was. I've always seen our fertility issues as an ocean, it's everywhere and you can't escape it. So when you've been drowning in an ocean for so many years, a little gasp of air is life altering and knowing that our daughter is the result of years of pain makes it all the more special for us. Special thanks to @katiesandersphotography for being there to capture these moments, I cannot express how much they mean to us!
Dustin and I are excited to announce the arrival of our daughter, Eisley Anne Wilmes. It still doesn't feel real to me that she's here but I cannot imagine our life without her. Much like her mother, she is dramatic and came into our world a few weeks early (1/30/18) and a quite a bit smaller than we anticipated (6lbs 2oz, 18.5in) but she's healthy and has a hell of a set of lungs, she's amazing. She has her Papa's eyes and her Mama's lips, and we both desperately hope that she will be a better person than we could ever aspire to be. Oh my Eisley, welcome to Earth.
