Hello World! Caroline Cate is Here

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

Wow, what a weekend...so much can change with the blink of an eye! I could tease a bit and say we spent the days relaxing and doing our "normal routine", yet our life completely changed for the better-on Saturday, March 17th, 2012 at 12:18pm, Caroline Cate Stoneking made her debut into our world!
Our little miss is apparently as much a planner as I am, as she arrived on her due date and is the luckiest charm we could ever have!
She has stolen our hearts {along with all our family and friends} and is the most incredible pint size peanut, weighing in at 7 pounds, 8 ounces and 20.25 inches long.
I promise to return to the blogging world soon with all sorts of updates about our newest addition, but for now I will leave you with some of our favorite pictures from the past few days...we are all home, safe and sound, and are over the moon to finally have her in our arms!
And P.S. a big thank you for all your sweet words of well wishes, calls, emails, and messages- we feel extremely blessed and thank God so much for the greatest blessing of them all.
love at first sight
