Dreams and Goals

Since Matt last wrote about thankfulness for God blessing him with the opportunity to see our newborn daughter, I wanted to also write about achieving a dream and goal of mine. Today I did something I've wanted to do since I was 16 years old and was given my first "real" camera for my birthday by my grandfather. I took photos of a beautiful infant girl...

...who is finally and actually mine! Matt and I have taken so many photos of beautiful kiddos over the years, and now we have our own. These pictures, especially of her little toes, are the kind of pictures I've seen in my mind and then finally get to materialize in real life. Here is my little beauty at 2 weeks and a day old:
And somehow magically in the hospital, despite the bad hair, no makeup, no sleep, and um, just having had a baby... Uncle Creech managed to capture the shot every mommy wants to treasure:
