She's really HERE!!!

Friday night Dahlia Mae surprised everyone by coming a month early and with new record breaking speeds and adorableness. 7lbs. 8 oz. and as beautiful as can be. Matt and Rosie were having dinner at our house to (Haaa!!!) write out a BIRTH PLAN when birth (like it tends to around here...) just decided to PLAN ITSELF!!! In a nutshell...
Wham
Bam...
Thank you
Ma'am.
I will never forgive myself for that five minute stop for gas on the way to the hospital behind them. I was about five minutes too late for a labor that amounted to 2 hours from first contraction to baby. I'm thinking it was some sort of revenge? ;)
New Daddy brushing out the labor tangles...
Dahlia, you get to have such a funny Momma and Daddy! I love this picture...
Gramma in all her glory...Hannah Weeps for Joy...
There was not a dry eye in the room when Hannah first held her cousin and the floodgates of happy tears opened. I cry every time I look at this picture. Born into a world of happy tears and love...
joy and smiles...and of course...many answered prayers.
I'm so proud of you Rosie.
And you Matt, you rocked it of course. I knew you would.

And to the Giver of Life, we are all so humbly grateful...
