Princess Ivy LaRue


Meet Mimi's newest little Princess, Ivy LaRue. Picture's are courtesy of Ashlee at Mama's Nest. She looks like Stephanie when she was first born.
I feel like I have been in a dream since Sunday night. What an experience to be able to witness this little miracle coming into the world in her own home. I am so proud of my daughter. She is so brave and the strength she showed was so amazing. I will let Steph tell the Birth Story when she is able to. I stayed at Steph's house to help with everything and came home last night. Ivy's brother's are on cloud 9. They want to look at her all the time and are just so happy to have a sister. Would you believe I only took 1 picture of Ivy the whole time I was there? I was too busy with other things. I will be updating with new pictures soon...probably tonight after going to visit her.

My wonderful son-in-law, Jeff, took this picture of Gray and I about 10 hours after Ivy was born. Gray crawled up in my lap and was sacked out in no time. I remember being so comfy from the breeze that was blowing and there was no noise in the house. What a night we had. It was like a big party.

I love it when they are young and will try to suck on anything...including their hands. Too sweet. And that last picture is so sweet.
