We made it through our first night. Kevin and I are taking shifts the best we can while I pretty much nurse her around the clock. I have some minor issues with breastfeeding but am pushing through them with the support and help of friends and taking naps every opportunity I can.
I'll try to type up a birth story in the next few days while our little angel sleeps (wish us luck) with lots and lots of pictures.
And like many of you said, I couldn't be prepared for the amount of love I'd feel for this little girl - you were right and then some. I love her so much my heart just aches, in a good way. Like it's going to explode all over the place. I can't wait to get to know her and love her and see her grow. I don't want anything to happen to her and would do anything for her. Kevin feels the same way.
Here are a few pictures to share in the meantime until I can write more. I also hope to do a newborn photo session with her tomorrow and capture her in all her sleepy sweetness while I can. Lots more pictures will come your way, I assure you all!

|Hi, world! Here's a picture of Sammy as she officially turned one day old. :) I could eat those cheeks up!|
|Cracking a smile for daddy. (Or probably gas, but we can always pretend because she's too cute not to share!)|
|More smiles (gas lol)|
|One of the happiest moments of our lives. Strapping this beautiful girl into her carseat and heading home with her. She's ours!|
