My favorite birth plans are when the birth mom and dad’s goal is for a healthy baby and a healthy mommy. With my first baby it took me until I was 39 weeks and 6 days along to be ok with this plan because I thought the last thing I wanted was a c-section. But when it came down to it, I realized that what I ultimately wanted was a healthy baby. And if that’s how God chose to get her here, then that was ok.
Christin and Josh were thankfully on that same birth plan too (the one with the “healthy baby and healthy mommy” plan) because their baby girl Avereigh was loving life just where she was! At 41 weeks, Christin was induced and everything was going well. I drove down to Anderson when she was about halfway and her water had been broken. And when I walked in the room, Christin and Josh were just as Christin and Josh are… cool and collected and happy to be meeting their baby girl soon!
I’m not a crafty-DIY kind of girl, so I’m always so impressed when I meet people who are. And yes, Christin is one of them! How adorable is this sign she made for their daughter??
Christin’s sisters had shirts made for them and several others… theirs both said “Aunt-Tourage”!
I LOVE this image of Christin’s and her grandmother’s hands feeling sweet Avereigh moving around.
Also, Christin’s dad is just the cutest and he loves his daughters SO much.
Avereigh ended up being born via c-section later that evening. She is perfectly healthy and doing wonderfully! But because of some extra observations they needed to do, I instead came back to the hospital for a Fresh48 session about 36 hours later :-)
I hung around with the family for a while until we knew for sure what the plan was going to be.
About 24 hours later, this little lady was ready for lots of snuggles with her parents. So about 36 hours after she was born, I headed back to the hospital for a Fresh48 session and it was magical!!
I brought my Pentax645 along just in case… and I’m so glad I did.
Look how beautiful these 2 images below are!
Baby yawns are the cutest!!
If I could use the heart eyes emoji on my blog, they would all be RIGHT here.
Look how creamy and beautiful film captures this sweet new baby girl!
Christin, being a mommy looks SO good on you. Especially when your robe and Avereigh’s swaddle match!
Those lips. And her throwing us a peace sign was almost more than I could handle.
