kate elise echols

I want to take some time to document Kate's birth story, and a few details about our hospital stay.  I am not quite ready to sit down and write that out yet, so for now it will just be photos from our days in the hospital. :)

Kate Elise Echols was born on Tuesday, April 15, 2014.  She weighed 8 lbs, 10 ounces and was 20.5 inches long.  I was at 39 weeks, 6 days gestation.



Heading to the hospital to have this baby!  Not the most flattering photo of me - but what can you do. :)

Proud daddy

This girl has some lungs on her.

In the recovery room, snuggling my newest blessing

My precious little family...my heart is bursting!

Nanna & Papa

Aunt G (Kate - you guys are going to be great friends...trust me!)

This photo of my dad snuggling Kate just melts me!

Uncle Rodney looks good holding a little girl!

Jacqueline came to visit and love on Miss Kate

Big brother holding Kate for the first time - LOVE this photo!

Had fun taking a few quick pictures while at the hospital - a story on that later...

Miss Mary came to love on Kate

Heading home with this precious bundle!

I couldn't get out of bed the first day, and apparently decided not to take many photos over the next few days - so I'm missing pictures of Scott's family.  I will need to get some of those and post them later.  They definitely have been loving on her as well.  :)  Little girl is spoiled and loved more than ever.  We are so thankful!
