My sweet girl was born last year on September 20, 2012. She weighed 6 lbs 15 ounces and was 18 inches long.  Her birth was a huge blessing, but it was not without trials. Nick and I had only been married for one month when we found out I was pregnant. We were living in a tiny 20 x 2o in rural Alaska, with no family around. Both of us needed (and still do) need to finish school. Of course, we fell in love with her before she was even here despite those trials and we have since moved to Washington, where we are near his family. God knows what He is doing because she has brought so many blessings to our life, and He continues to help us with the trials we face!IMG_1537 She was 10 days old when I took this--so tiny, so precious. I love how peaceful and beautiful she looks in this picture, and that's exactly what she has brought to us.
