My closest and dearest friend in the world gave birth to a beautiful baby girl this weekend. Katie and Jeremy have been through so much to get to this moment. Those of you who know them have been crying and cheering from the sidelines for the better part of 2-3 years. Their first baby boy, Lucas, was born on January 7, 2011 after a perfectly normal pregnancy, but sadly we lost him to an undiagnosed heart defect 31 hours later. My sweet friends never got to bring home their angel, and although I don’t want to darken this current moment of joy with the sad past, I think it is important to bring to life the sheer happiness that we all felt to see Katie and Jeremy experience joy again. With her big brother Lucas looking down on her from heaven, baby Ellie came into this world welcomed with more love than I can ever express with words. Maybe these photos will show you….
Welcome to the world, Baby Ellie!
