After waiting patiently (and impatiently, depending on the day!), Kevin and I finally welcomed our daughter into the world on Friday, March 31. I’m working on writing her birth story to share with y’all soon, but in the meantime wanted to share a few photos of our girl.
These first few days as parents have been even more incredible than I could have imagined. Often, Kevin and I find ourselves looking at this tiny human in complete awe. How in the world did we get lucky enough to be her parents?
So far, Maggie’s pretty excellent at being a baby. She’s a champion eater (thankfully breastfeeding is going really well) and is just 1.5 ounces shy of being back to her birth weight. Go, girl! She’s alert and seems oh-so anxious to take in the world around her. As long as she’s being held, she’s content (caveat: this morning at 3 a.m., when nothing would calm her down). Oh, and she’s totally smiling already. (She is!) I’m absolutely biased, but I happen to think she’s the world’s best baby. 🙂
Margaret (“Maggie”) Elizabeth Keller

7 pounds, 8.5 ounces

Oh, and Big Brother Fulton is doing well with her so far! He’s VERY interested in his new puppy, and wants to smell her a lot. (Me, too, Fulton — that baby smell is intoxicating!) When she cries, he seems both confused and concerned. I think he’s going to be great at this new role.
Stay tuned for Maggie’s birth story!
