Welcome to the World Leah Kathryn!

We are so excited and proud to announce our daughter, LEAH KATHRYN LOVELACE, who arrived on September 26th, 2011 at 12:45pm! She is healthy and doing great! We can not begin to express how thankful we are to be able to stay in the hospital for 3 days and leave with a sweet baby girl! The pregnancy was not easy, but God constantly reminded me to be thankful because he was protecting her. He gave me such comfort that goes beyond my own power! I just want to cry when thinking about how blessed we are. Here are a few pictures from the hospital and when we got home. :)

Last day to be pregnant! :)

Safe in daddy's arms. :)

Our family of 4!

Momma's girl :)

great grandparents!


Aaron took Drew to church on Sunday and purposefully dressed them alike. My boys make me so happy! Who wouldn't want to wake up to this? :)

Andrew is slowly warming up to Leah. He calls her sissy and baby. He doesnt quite understand the relationship, but knows there is a baby. He is very sweet at giving her blankets and pacifiers. The next picture shows him giving her diapers (after every one he put on her swing, he would say, shoo poops :) He also gave her the Count. You must understand, this is Andrew's favorite character, so it was a big deal. As time passes, I know he will grow to love and protect her. :)
