Amelia Joy Ross


One of the first photos of my daughter, moments after being born

Our baby girl arrived on May 22 at 7:13 in the evening. 7 pounds, 0.5 ounces. 20.25 inches long. Her name is Amelia Joy and she is completely perfect.

She has a head full of thick brown hair, the cutest button nose, and deep blue eyes that are just beginning to focus on her world. Christopher and I are completely smitten with her curled little toes, her squeals and sighs, her chubby thighs... everything.

It's pretty incredible to think that today she turns two weeks old. Goodness. She's already changed so much! We're growing to know each other more and more every day, and it is one of the most rewarding things (albeit challenging) I've ever been a part of. Even now as she sleeps on my chest, my heart has grown larger than I thought possible.

Posting on GH may be a little sporadic as I get used to motherhood (specifically, the lack of sleep) but I'll do my best to share little updates as I can in between baby snuggles.

Oh, happy day! Welcome, welcome little Amelia Joy. We are all so glad you are here. I can't wait to get back up to your neighborhood for another meet and greet. Maybe during daylight and we could take a few pictures :)

What a precious baby girl! I am partial to the name, Amelia, because my mom was very close to naming me that. I'm sure I will name one of my daughters Amelia. :) I hope you are enjoying motherhood! What a blessing.
