Miracle

 
 
 "Miracle" - Celine Dion
 


Good morning.
 Piper and I are about to go upstairs and sneak in a few minutes with Daddy before he gets ready for work.  It's been our ritual this week. 

Piper is one healthy babe.  Her weight checked out great at our doctor's visit yesterday.  She gained 6 ounces and is 8lbs. 3+oz - 6 oz. away from her birth weight.
No more checkups until she's one month old.


My wonderful friend, Kelly, came over on Sunday afternoon and took some very special photos for us.  We tore up the nursery.  We laughed.  We cried.  We laughed some more.
Piper was a champ (and a doll) through all the wardrobe changes.
Her little personality shines through in every single photo.  We are in love with her silly, little faces...her sad, pouty faces and her big, inquisitive eyes.

Thank you, Kelly.  These photos mean so much to us.
 

Our little miracle at just six days old...
We adore you, Piper Grace.
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
hilarious!  she takes after her mama in the funny face department.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 love it!

Have a beautiful day.
And a happy weekend. 
I'll be back next week with Piper's birth story.
 
Lots of love to all. <3

Oh my goodness, Maria, she is SO beautiful!!! That sweet little face! I just wanna squeeze her little cheeks and kiss her button nose :). Such a DOLL! She looks like her momma, too :). I loooove the ones of you holding her in the rocking chair- so special. And Steve holding her...he is completely smitten! What a proud daddy. So sweet! I love all of these so much...that last outfit Piper's wearing is precious. I love her! Bring her to Texas please :).

I love that you're soaking up each and every moment...and taking lots and lots of pictures of all the "firsts". Piper will thank you when she's older! She is one lucky (and gorgeous!) baby girl to have parents like you two.

I LOVE ALL THE PICTURES!!!!! Keep them coming, keep them coming, keep them coming! I just can't seem to get enough of them. Gosh, I'd love to hold her and snuggle her. She's such a sweetheart. I got your voice note and LOVED it. She was NOT happy you were talking to me. She wanted all your attention. HA HA! I LOVE YOU, MAMA!!!!!!

M said...

Beautiful photos as always...minus the one with the Yanks and Tigers in the background with the Tigers losing LOL!

I get so excited every time I see a new post...I just love seeing your little family :) Can't wait to read the birth story!!

Jenny said...

What a beautiful little family!!

Infertile625 said...

She's beautiful. I love the one where the headband fell over her eyes and she's stretching trying to see. She's feisty! Love it! My Steve (hubby) is a huge Yankees fan too. I'm a Philly girl so I lean to the Phillies but I'll yield to him when we have kids for baseball....... Thanks for sharing your story. Your strength inspires me.

Anne K. said...

Congratulations Maria! She is beautiful!

Irish Carter said...

OH my goodness Maria. I can't decide which I like best. I teared up with Piper and daddy in the NY'er wardrobe. It made me think of that daddy/daughter thing....brought memories of me and my daddy back. BUT I have to say...the crocheted dress is so adorable. Love it. You all are so blessed.

Tami said...

You are RIGHT! She does have pouty faces!! Love it! For the record, I think she looks like Steve when she pouts. HAHA!
Kelly did take awesome photos too.

Kerry said...

Awww Piper is like a little doll in some of those pics!! And that face, oh my gosh, when she screws her face up it breaks your heart doesn't it lol
She is so tiny, only because I am used to looking at bigger little people hehehe, they grow up too fast from that tiny little version of themselves. Great pics Kelly! Love the ones of the three of you especially!! xoxo
