Another Birthday

We got to celebrate another amazing birthday Monday night. Our sweet Iyla (pronounced Eye-La) Grace made her arrival into this world!

And she completely did things her way.

Chose her birthday (11-12-12, 8:44pm).

Miraculously moved Franny out of the way to allow for a vaginal birth, against all odds (I believe the ultrasound tech said there was less than a 1% chance she'd have room to push past that fibroid?)

She is a healthy, feisty little bean (5 lbs, 14 ounces, 19 inches) and we are quite smitten with her.

More to come with her official birth story, but for now- a few precious pictures. We are truly blessed!


  1. Congrats on your daughter! Beautiful name for a perfect little girl!

  2. Congratulations!!! She's beautiful!

  3. Congratulations!!!! And, wow, you have almost exactly the same birthday! I've never heard of the name Iyla, what does it mean / is she named after someone?

  4. Joy to the world! I can't wait to hear her ory. Rest up, mama, ya done good

  5. Congrats! I'm so happy for you! She is so cute and I love her name!
