Welcome to Our Family Naomi


This was absolutely the most emotion I think I've ever felt as they put her in my arms. Cache was born C-section and both of us were in shock and bad shape,so this was a new experience. I can't even think about it without crying, even as I type! What a beautiful day.

What a bonding experience it was for Devin and I too. At this moment I loved my baby, but loved Devin even more. He is so good to me.


Meeting big brother for the first time. Even though they are further apart in age I hope they will be as close as me and my Big brother Ben always were.

First family PHOTO! Don't we just live for days like these?

Amie, love the pictures; they made me cry as well. So sweet to have a new little precious one in your home. I wish we didn't live so far away. I should have jumped on a plane with your mom, i would just to hold little Naomi. Give her a kiss from me. Congratulations. You look great - a sence of accomplishment on your face. Hope all is going well. Love you guys.

I love the way you described your feelings. It really is a beautiful thing between a husband and wife to bring a child into this world. And I'm sure more enjoyable when it's not under the stress of a last minute c-section. I remember when Claire was born, for the whole first week I wanted to snuggle up to Ben everytime I could. It just made me love him even more than I ever thought possible.
