It's a girl!

We were thrilled to welcome Celia Grace to the world on Saturday morning. After two boys I envisioned another boy joining our family. To our surprise that was not to be, especially for her dad. Shawn was dumbfounded when the doctor asked him the gender. We couldn't be happier to have this sweet little girl in our lives and are simply overflowing with love.

Born at 6:19am 7lb 6oz 20in.
Celia's brothers were excited to meet her. They came a few hours after she was born and showered her with hugs and kisses.

Family of five.
Shawn entertained the boys at the hospital.

Going home.
