Love Redefined

Monday, August 5, 2013

So a few hours after I wrote this last Monday, I went to the doctor for a check-up.  Still no contractions, but there was labor progress.  Fast forward a few more hours and contractions started steadily at 3 pm.... and well, I had a baby.  On Tuesday, July 30, 2013 at 9:53 I gave birth to my daughter - Georgia Grace Lopatka, 8 lbs. 4 oz.  Best day of my life.  

As you can imagine exhaustion is here but so is joy.  So much joy.  And gratitude.  How do I get to be a mom to this perfect little gift?  I'm still in awe.  I haven't gone through my camera pictures yet but here are a few IPhone photos for your Monday.














PS - Later this week, Kari will be here talking about her travels afar!
