It has been a few weeks since she arrived and I am beginning to come back to life so I wanted to share a little about our new little lady Miss Maybellene!
She arrived ahead of schedule on December 7th, which was fine with us because we didn’t want to wait another minute to meet her. Despite her early arrival, she was perfect.
My pregnancy with Maybellene was the most eventful I have ever experienced and that last month before she came is not one I would ever care to repeat. Yet, I think the trials of getting her here, not to mention the stress of having a baby during a pandemic, made the feelings of relief and excitement of having her here safe and sound even stronger.
Her third name, Joy, came to be during the last part of the year because that is exactly what she meant to us. Her life brought us something deeper than momentary happiness. It brought joy, which can be felt even on the darkest days. ❤️
