Introducing Kaia Joy...

No need to yell at us Kaia.
We're aware you're here!!!
And we're all so grateful!!

Happy Birthday!

I have to tell you a little story... I sent this picture text message to Tara after reading that she was going in for a C-Section when an OR could be acquired. The note took me a little while to "manufacture" because I could only find sharpies that were thin tipped so I got worried my text would be lost in all the chaos of welcoming a new baby. (By the way, I'm not a psychic... I had a heads up on her name)

Come to find that when they announced Kaia's arrival about an hour later on Tara's blog ... my picture text had missed the baby's time of birth by only 9 minutes.

That's some pretty good timing huh?
(Hey Mari and Kerry... thanks for visiting and encouraging Tara on her blog today. She really appreciated every bit of encouragement she received!!)

Isn't she beautiful? I love technology. Friends of ours had a baby the night before and I had been following their progress on Facebook. Then last night, I got to wait for Kaia on her blog.
She took a long time to arrive, but I know Kara would say she was worth every minute!

Nancy said...

What a beautiful baby and so glad she is here doing well.

Tara said...

Chelle' you're so sweet. I just now saw your blog updates. :) I haven't had a whole lot of time to blog hop lately..can't imagine why. :)

It's amazing how quickly you actually do forget the pains of labor...I haven't as easily forgotten the pains of pregnancy though. However, it was all MORE than worth it. Kaia's doing great...can't wait for you to meet her!
