Yesterday we picked up our professional photos from Jodie.
I was giddy all day.
I know I mentioned it before, but Jodie was kind enough to gift us her time and talent the night Amelia was born.
The night itself was more than words could describe and I find myself struggling already to recount all of it.
These photos, my friends, are an absolute treasure.
I poured over them for hours, HOURS I tell you.
Every moment of that night, that amazing, wonderful, life changing night was documented.
I have over 100 photos detailing every single small moment.
For example, to keep my nerves at bay, Jodie and I played Scramble (read: Jodie killed me at Scramble).

That is just one tiny detail of the night that I will always remember.
A few weeks ago, my mom and I were talking about that night and she said to me, "I will never forget that look you had on your face when they wheeled Amelia into the room."
All I kept thinking was I wish I knew what I looked like!!
Wish no more, it was captured...

and the sheer joy we felt when saw her for the first time... it's all here...

Looking through these photos was like living the night over again. 
 It was such an incredible blessing.
I can't wait until I can share more of them with you!!!
It is amazing how much emotion a photograph can evoke.  I
 feel so so so blessed to have this gift.
Thank you Jodie.
My heart is so full.
