Welcome Emily Ann! Weighing in at 7 lbs. 7 oz.

You have no idea how amazing it was to hold you for the first time. My life was changed immediately.

Your first hairbow/ hair flower! You looked so precious!

Your first birthday cake. Annie and Poppy brought this to the hospital to enjoy. (Chocolate cake with white icing- Mommy's favorite!)

We love naptime!

Heading home from the hospital. You wore the outfit I wore home from the hospital and the shoes Daddy would have worn if he was a girl. The knitted cap was from our friend Mrs. Debbie.

A closer look.

Settled into the car seat for the first time. 

In the car and headed home!

We showed you your room as soon as we got home. You didn't say it, but I know you loved it.

Auburn was playing as we left the hospital and got home, so I had to change you into your first gameday outfit! I used this inspiration to make the onesie. Your friend Johanna gave you the headband. 

Meeting your Great-Mam Maw Johnson!

Your first bath. You didn't love the actual event, but really enjoyed the cuddling (and smell) afterward.

After the bath. Love that hair.

I made you a hairband like mine- We match!

The most wonderful pair ever. Love this picture and these two!!

We love you Emily Ann!
