angel Alice

Alice Joy Chapman
10-15-2010
7 lbs 11 oz, 19.5 inches
born at 2:49 pm

she is my angel baby.
she really is.
we are home--
and so happy to be home.
and i wish i had all the time in the world to just tell you everything and record everything just how it happened. but i don't. (imagine that).
just know-- it was as peaceful and happy as a labor and delivery could be.
and little sweet Alice Joy Chapman is truly that,
our sweet little piece of heaven & joy.
she has Ellie's cheeks, and black hair.
she has Mama and Dada's heart.
and Ellie is absolutely enamored with her.
enjoy some lil glimpses into our weekend (because that's the fun part anyway).

Ellie wanted to love and kiss on baby sister Alice all day long. melts my heart.....so much.


so grateful to have Gammy/my mama here to help out in the way only mamas can.

happy happy.

Kath said...

Alright, that's it! I wondered what would make me "de-lurk" but after those beauuutiful pics who could stay silent?? Not me, no more. I started reading your blog when I got the link for the initial "have the baby" YouTube video with your FIRST pregnancy. I think I got the link from Denae's blog. Anyway...we used to be in NG1st. Love, love your in-laws!! Fun to see pics of them on your blog now and then. Anyway...congratulations on your gorgeous baby and delightful blog!!
