Cecily is HERE!

Just a quick post to announce that our sweet Cecily Blanche is finally here!

Born Monday, July 5th, at 8:01am via planned C-section.  She weighed a healthy 7 lbs 14 oz, and measured 20 inches long.  Head full of dark brown hair, which surprised hubby and I--Knox had NO hair when he was born!  :)  She's a wonderful baby, and rarely cries unless we're changing her clothes or diaper.  We actually have to wake HER up every four hours to eat!

This past week has been an easy transition, due only to my wonderful hubby and amazing parents being here to help out with Knox, grocery shopping, cooking, clothes washing, etc.  Sweet Brother and Lindsey came for the weekend to love on both Knox and Cecily.  It meant the world to have all of them here.  Knox went home with Ma Jack & Big Daddy, then on to Grammy & Grandaddy's until Thursday or Friday.  That way, he gets a little "vacation" while I continue to heal since I currently can't even pick him up.  After his vacation, he along with Grammy & Grandaddy come see us for the weekend so they can have some quality time with baby girl.

We're definitely blessed with amazing family, as well as wonderful friends.  Jeff, Bridgette & Holly all were able to come meet Cecily in the hospital.  Jill drove 2 1/2 hours down for a Friday visit, and the Bowlings (Jayma, BJ & presh Miss Molly) drove 3 hours over for a Saturday visit.  One more friend may be able to stop by at the end of this month to meet Cecily, but we're waiting on the approval.  :)  Now, we just have to wait several more weeks until we go to the grandparents' houses before Cecily is able to meet more friends--and we CAN'T HARDLY WAIT to see them!

Anywho, that's a quick run down of this amazing week in our life.  Gotta go love on baby girl.  :)


  1. I had such a great visit! I still think you should post that pic from Friday before that you sent me ;) you're such a cutie!

  2. Hello-

    I was wondering if you accept guest posts? I have an article/event that I would like to submit in regards to childhood obesity. It is about dancing and how it can be a fun way for kids to exercise. Primrose Schools is hosting a Dance Off competition (with proceeds going the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals) for families and I think it is something you and your readers would enjoy!

    I look forward to hearing from you!

    Thank you,
