SO many emotions as I introduce our newest girl into this world. She is by far the sweetest little snuggle bug, doesn’t cry (no for real, she doesn’t..), and her big sisters absolutely adore her. Since being home, there have been a lot of kisses, a lot of smells of her baby head, and more requests to hold ‘baby kay-kaker’ than I can keep count of. They sing to her as I nurse, count her little toes, and play with her jet black hair.
It has been such a dream.
For 9 months we contemplated on her looks and who she will resemble most, but she is literally the perfect blend of both Jolie and Parker. She has the Jolie scowl and sleeps with her arms under her face- just like Parker. She is so dainty, even though she is a full 2 pounds heavier than Jo Grace when we brought her home.
Parker and Jolie met our Baker girl on her second day of life, and I cant help but wipe the tears as I look through these precious moments for the billionth time.

Two big sisters so proud to finally meet their ‘Baker Baby’
special thank you to the amazing Brittany of bfaith photography for capturing these first moments of being together as a family of five. I will treasure these pictures forever.
I also want to thank you for each and every kind word of encouragement and blessing since our announcement. It is overwhelming the amount of gratitude we have for the community of support we have found ourselves in.
Working on Baker’s birth story — stay tuned next week for talks about how it all went down (I actually googled “what is active labor..”), my recovery after c-section, and the transition home with Baker and the twins.
Oh, and of course there will be thousands of pictures to share:)
