She is the apple of her daddy’s eye and the keeper of his heart. ❤️
She is also the living manifestation of decades of love and investment by her (very) proud grandparents, who cannot stop staring at her in joy and disbelief. Thank you for all of the well-wishes and prayers bringing her into this world; it means the world to us as sleep-deprived parents who can’t stop staring at her full head of hair and tiny little toes. We are simply in a state of wondrous awe, witness to how precious and miraculous human life is.”
