Welcome to the world, baby James!
Daddy and his first born son... melt my heart!! (There's a lot of heart melting going on in the Brinkerhoff home) I noticed Eric holding James a couple hours after birth and realized that was his first time holding him (such a patient man to let me have my time with James!) and the look on his face was priceless! So much love!! Thankful for the nurse who found my phone and took this picture for me since I wasn't stable on my feet yet.
Our first morning home!
Most likely our last family (of 3) selfie and everyone cooperated?! Oh how I love my people!! We went to another Dr appointment today and baby boy is still head down and Mia smiled SO big while we listened to his heartbeat! I am so grateful for all of your love and prayers these past weeks for my family! Thank you, thank you! (from my 39 week appointment)
The day we pulled out the Fall/Halloween decor was a happy one!
Life is better with your best friend (and hopefully future husband ;) ha ha!)
Little moments I don't want to forget:: last night as we were singing songs & saying your bedtime prayer, I got real emotional & started bawling in front of you. You were smothering my face in kisses during the songs (a nice change from your usual "YUUUCK no kisses!") and squishing my face between your hands saying "you sooooo cute" & letting me say it back to you & erupting into giggles (a nice change from your usual "I no cute!!") I cried because I'm just so thankful for the last 2 1/2 years of just us! You wiped my tears as I tried to explain that it was a happy cry. We hugged & cuddled & I never want to forget those moments with you! Mia, my favorite daughter, my little bestie, the one who made me a mom... I love you from here to eternity!!
Here's a mix of life before and after James was born! I've been
