Welcome to the world baby Monica!

She's HERE! And she's absolutely perfect!!!! I was able to spend time with Mary and Mike yesterday in their quiet hospital room as they are enjoying baby Monica. This sweet baby girl is baby number 5 and her parents are clearly at ease. She the perfect addition to their family of now four girls and one boy! I think it's safe to say...Monica won't be put down or left alone very often!

She's getting lots of cuddle time from Mom and Dad before they head home! And it's clear she is adored by both already!

Brayden meets his sister and brother!

I wish I could capture the emotions in the room when Laurel and Luke met Brayden! It was absolutely beautiful and oh so surprising! Luke surprised everyone and I think Brayden was showered with a record number of kisses from Luke in the first hour they met!!!! Laurel quickly settled into her big sister role and wanted to snuggle him!

They were so excited to meet this new baby and both of them instantly fell in love with him! It was just breathtaking to watch...

Laurel quickly fell in love with him and it was so amazing to watch her not only show concern for her new brother but for her beautiful momma as well. She was right there to help in anyway she could! Such a sweet big sister!

Watch how this family of 4 welcomed their 5th perfect little member of their family!!!!

H family, it was an honor and blessing to walk this birth journey with you. May the days to come be filled with laughter and love in your home. 

H family story...

It's so hard to believe that just 2 months ago I sat across from a table and talked with a beautiful family of 4 about the upcoming arrival of their new little baby boy. I instantly fell in love with this sweet family and eagerly awaited the phone call that it was time to head to the hospital...January 14th was the day the phone call came. I don't think you can get much closer to a perfect labor and birth than Stephanie. She is an amazing birthing momma...I will let the video tell the rest of the beautiful story!

Congratulations to all 5 of you!!!
