Ruth Charlotte Norman.

I can't even write this without tearing up so it will be short.

I have never been so in love with God, my husband and another human as I am now.

It was (and still kind of is) the hardest thing that I could have never even imagined and for some crazy beautiful reason, the makes the magnitude that much more significant.

Praise God for mothers who have answered calls at 2am and come over and helped with the incredible newness of all of this.

She is beautiful and we are beyond blessed and praise God that somehow (I have no idea) He dreamed up something as beautiful as birth and babies.

Birth story to come-still recovering from the quite insane nature of it all :)

  1. Anna,

    She is BEAUTIFUL! precious! I hope you're recovering well, as I'm sure the change of pace is going to take some adjusting.

    All the best,

  2. Aw! I think someone looks a fair bit like her daddy!! :) So very lovely Anna and you look fabulous! P.S. be careful putting that kind of bling on her fingers so early-you know she'll now never settle for less. ;)

  3. Those are stunning! Welcome to motherhood which is often a beautiful mess! She's beautiful and you all must be so proud. Can't wait to see more pictures. I know some twins and a little girl who would love to meet her. Maybe this summer we'll head down!

  4. Ahh that picture of her all snuggled in that fuzzy blanket kills me (3rd from the bottom)! What a precious little lady you have! :)

  5. Oh Anna! I can't wait to meet her and spend time with you guys with Emma too! Motherhood is crazy and awesome and absolute holy and poetic and SO TRULY LOVELY. It brings tears to my eyes when I think about how God gave you Ruth. So in love with our Lord!

  6. Oooooooh....she is GORGEOUS and totally perfect! God is so very good. Congrats to you and yours. Enjoy this goes WAY too quickly.

  7. What a precious blessing that little girl is! Congratulations Anna, and rest up! Prayers are with you.


  8. She is so beautiful. Perfect. I chatted with Meghan this past Sunday evening. She will be passing along a family recipe for you. What a blessing to see the result of months of making a person, human, an unbelievable mystery that even after five kids I don't get, but God knows what he was doing to place that gift of carrying our children into the mom, close to our hearts. So happy for your family.

  9. Oh my goodness! Congratulations! She is gorgeous and you are glowing! Thank you so much for you sweet comment on my blog. I would love chat more about dress options. Email me whenever you get the chance. Enjoy this moment with your new family! Blessings, Camilyn Beth

  12. Oh my goodness! Anna, your baby girl is absolutely gorgeous! I am sooo happy to see that she's made it, and to know that you are all well. Praise God! Love you and can't wait to see more updates and pics!!
