~Zoe Elise Keck~ August 23, 2009 ~

Zoe has arrived! On Friday, August 21st at 9:30 pm my water broke. We hurried to get the car packed and headed to the hospital. We just could not wait to meet our little girl! But that is exactly what we did....wait!! Labor was slow going and I was beginning to think she would never come out! She definitely wanted to arrive on her own time.

At 4:38 am on Sunday, August 23, 2009 Miss Zoe Elise Keck was born weighing in at 8lbs 0.9oz and a length of 20 3/4 inches. She came with a full head of dark hair and her daddy's feet. God has blessed us with a healthy and beautiful daughter. She is perfect in every way and we couldn't be more in love with her.

Holding her for the first time was the most wonderful feeling. We new our lives were forever changed in that very moment.

We could hardly wait to get her home and start living as a new family. She has been such a joy to us! I cant stop staring at her beautiful face and watching all her expressions. She is an absolute blessing.

Welcome to earth, Zoe Elise! :)

A nursery fit for a princess....Our princess!

Austin and I have been working for months on Zoe's nursery. It is finally complete and we are so proud of it. We each have included a few things from our childhoods that were special to us. My Nana hand painted a pillow for me when I was two, and the only music box that I didn't break growing up is the moon and bear one. Austins grandma collected Peter Rabbit books and figurines for him, and he has also held onto Howie, a stuffed raccoon. We are happy to pass these things on to Zoe. Here are some pictures of the room. It is hard to capture all the details without posting a ton of pictures. I had to narrow it down to these. The room looks so much more beautiful in person!

Her room is ready! The only thing missing is a sweet little baby sleeping in it!
