Dearest One,

TA-DA!! My baby girl arrived in all her glory 2 weeks ago on March 5th at 10:11pm. (Pssst…are you Evie b and wfollowing me on Facebook yet? Lots of news and pics are posted on my Facebook page, so make sure to “like” me to stay in the loop!)

We had two first names and two middles names that we were deciding between and wanted to wait until we met our baby girl to decide. It was abundantly clear which name was right once we looked into her little eyes and felt her energy.

Introducing Evie Rose Ahlers, weighing in at 7 pounds 10 ounces and 22 inches long. She arrived with great speed, after only 5 minutes of “pushing” (which felt more like holding on for dear life as my body completely took over and ushered her into the world!).

I made a quick 3 minute video for you with Evie so you can officially meet her. Click below to view it. 
At some point, I will likely write more about all the lessons natural childbirth taught me and all the things I’m re-learning as I cocoon with my newborn. But right now, I just don’t have the energy! My days are fillesisters webd with nursing, diaper changes, naps, nursing, and did I mention nursing?!

For now I’ll just say that I’m honored Evie chose our family and my heart is bursting at the seams with love for her. And to see her and her big sister, Annabella, together makes me feel like everything is right in the world.We are blessed indeed.

I hope you are feeling blessed today and everyday. Remember, you are doing a good job and you matter!

Sending love from the newborn baby cocoon,

family2P.S. Next week we’ll return to the Magical Maternity Exposing the Big Fat Lies Summit re-launch. I hope you’re enjoying it!!

P.P.S. Thank for holding Evie and my entire family in such love. I appreciate you!
