Rosabella Grace is Here!!!!

Baby Bear, now called Rosabella Grace, arrived May 22, 2013 at 5:56 pm, crying and perfect.  She was 7 lbs 10 oz at birth and 20 inches long.  My beautiful baby overwhelms me with emotions: love, wonder, gratitude, fear, but mostly love, pure deep baby love.  It is our first night home, and I want to write more, and will later and with pictures!  Love to you all for all the support you have given me.  I know that Grace was watching over us the entire time, my love for her is ever expanding, just as it is for her baby sister.

    Welcome little sister, Rosabella Grace!

  6. She is beautiful!! Congratulations!! You did it mama!! Love to your whole family.

  7. OMG!!! YES!! Yaaaaaaayyyyyy! I'm thrilled beyond words for you, honestly, I can hardly contain myself. Rosabella is absolutely perfectly beautiful - I mean Beautiful. I'm whimpering at how precious she looks all milk-drugged up on your shoulder. You look calm calm calm too - amazing how all (well, most of) that anxiety of those 9 months just dissolves when they're in your arms. She's stunning, I'm beyond relieved and happy and ohhh, just so....tickled. And relieved again.
    Enjoy enjoy enjoy these magical days. They don't end, I'll tell you that. With our C coming on her first year, I could not have imagined how glorious she would be every day. I know your Rosabella will be the same for you.
    If only their big sisters were here to dote on them.
    Such a big big hug to you, Amanda.
