Happy Birth Day, Baby Girl!!!!


What an amazing, amazing day!!!

Amerlyn Grace Anderson arrived this morning at 10:56 a.m. in our home, surrounded by a proud papa, an elated mama, two *very* excited big brothers, Mee Maw, Aunt Nee Nee, two amazing midwives, and my dear friend, Lyndsay (whom I have to thank for these incredible images).

8 lbs. 1 oz. and 21 inches

(Amerlyn is pronounced “a” as in apple + merlin, but we will be calling her Amry for short.)

We are thrilled beyond words!!!!! So much to tell, but for now, I’m going to go stare at my beautiful little daughter.
