I am in Awe

I cannot even begin to describe how awe-strikingly amazing our bodies are. How can you not believe in God when experiencing the birth of an absolutely perfect human being? Though I am tired (no sleep in over 48 hours) and hungry (no real food in over 36)I couldn't be any more elated to have been invited to partake in such a glorious event.

Molly Elizabeth came into the world at 6:00pm tonight weighing 7lbs 5 oz, 19 inches long. After exhausting all avenues, she eventually arrived by c-section. She is perfect. Gorgeous. She is so much more than ten fingers and ten toes; she already has her own little personality and has managed to have her daddy wrapped around her little finger since he first set eyes on her.

The intimacy of the love that exists so instantly and ferociously at the very beginning of ones life between the creators and the created almost makes me embarrassed to be a part of. It seems too perfect for such a measly human being as myself to invade. But I wanted to be there to show my love and support, and I was welcomed with opened arms.

Though we have told them, I do not think Donald and Mindy could possibly understand how proud and honored we feel to have been given the privilege of being Molly's godparents. I hope they understand how serious we plan to take our given role and how much we want to play our part in Molly's little life. We have known her for mere hours, and already are head over heels in love.

I will post more on my newest love later. I will say this: she truly is one of the most beautiful babies I have seen- and that is saying a lot. I have a few pictures, but they were taken from behind the nursery glass, so be forgiving. :)
