Witnessing a life come into this world is something crazy amazing. Witnessing all the love, the 42 hours of patience, endurance, trust, family, truth, tired eyes and inspiration is something crazy amazing. It was sunrises and sunsets of navigating the unknown and anticipated and agonized hope in meeting a little life and witnessing the highest labor of love. Far from glamour yet the epitome of hard raw beauty. And at 1:14pm on Saturday September 5th we met a little baby girl, Naomi Simone Gourrier, a true chubby cheeked little doll that has forever re-worked my heart once again. I’ve always thought being a Mom was semi synonymous to being a warrior but that hard truth has been engrained in me forever. Women are fierce. And attentive, generous and ever present, heart holding husbands are sweet. Naomi Simone, you are one lucky little peach, there are so many people ready to love you up and I am forever grateful to be one of them. Being invited along to document you greeting us is an invitation hard to top and you have shown me what being fearfully and wonderfully made is all about my little one. Welcome Baby Nae, I really do love you (and your Mama and Papa and allll the Grandparents) so.
