Our second daughter and fifth child, sweet Ivy Hope, was born on Christmas morning! She is the most beautiful, dear little one and we're so in love with her.
We went to our church's Christmas Eve service after dinner on Wednesday. I was in early (very early) labor. How sweet it was to sing Christmas carols and take Communion (the boys' first!) together, while thinking about how soon we'd be holding our baby girl.
Ivy is our smallest bio baby, but a big girl nonetheless! Those cheeks! They did get smaller over the first week, but they're still kissable and adorable.
Then, after a few hours' nap, we had Christmas. I mean, we couldn't wait a day, right? It was Christmas after all. Laina got a baby doll to match Mama's new baby.
We seriously can't get enough of her.
