Welcome, love...

Today, I lost my heart to a little 7 pound 2 ounce redhead named Stella Josephine!

Faith's water started breaking this morning a little before nine, and Stella arrived at 4:52. She didn't actually go into labor until early afternoon, though. Apparently Stella was just ready to make her debut, because Faith went from a 3 to a 10 in less than two hours!

Both baby and mom are doing great, and we're all just smitten with this little princess, no one more so than her daddy. It was so incredible to see my big, strong brother turn to mush at the sight of her. He engaged in more than a little baby talk but, true to form, made sure to get in an inappropriate comment or two.

And Faith. Man, I just love her so so much, and I honestly can't tell you how much I love that she is Bubba's wife and Stella's mom. I never imagined that the shy four-year-old who was too afraid to tell me that her name was Faith and not Face would eventually be my family and a WONDERFUL new mom! She just took everything in stride as she always does and is enamored with that little girl.

And can I just tell you how cool it feels to be Stella's aunt?!? Growing up, I absolutely LOVED my aunts. They have been such a blessing to me throughout my life, and I hope Stella loves me as much as I love them. :)

So, I promise to post more pictures as SOON as possible - my amazing BFF took pictures of the whole thing and got some incredible shots. :)
