Gabriella Grace | One Month Lifestyle Newborn Portraits
We are so excited to introduce our new little assistant–Gabriella Grace. Gabriella was born on March 19th, 2019, at 11:23pm, after laboring for over 21 hours! You can read her entire birth story here! I can’t believe today she is one month old! This past month has flown by yet has been filled to the brim with so many memories! Here are a handful of my favorite photos from her past few newborn sessions!
Gabby is such a little sweetie! She is very expressive and gives the funniest faces. She will stare you down and act like she fully understands you. Her smile is the sweetest. She eats and sleeps so well! She loves her pacifiers and is always searching for it when she’s not feeding. The doctor said she was sucking on her finger when she was pulling her out! Gabby was always so calm and mellow in my tummy. I always felt she would be on the outside too, and she is! So far, she’s just like mommy.
Although she does have some of my physical features, I see Andrew in her so much more! Even though Andrew has the more recessive genes, he beat a handful of my dominant hispanic genes for sure! She has his eye shape, toes and long legs! She may have his green eyes, too, and I couldn’t be more excited about it! From me, we think she got my nose, ears, fingers, lips and, of course, my hair! Overall she is a pretty beautiful blend of both of us!
We are finally getting into a swing of things! We have overcome many challenges: jaundice, thrush and a tongue tie, to name a few. It feels great to be past them! We are still struggling with a few things but it’s getting better everyday! We’re just so grateful to have a healthy baby!
I am looking forward to feeling 100% again! Still having a decent amount of pain; I guess healing takes longer when you push for 5 hours and then have an emergency C-section. But I couldn’t be more grateful for this season of giving myself grace and soaking in every sweet moment. Thank you, to everyone who has been keeping us in your thoughts and prayers!
Those little toes!That sweet smile! Sweet little sleepyhead! When she is awake, she is so alert and observant! So grateful for our little miracle rainbow baby. Thank you, Jesus.
