Welcome to the World Atlas Turner Avery!

By  |  13 Comments

allow me to introduce to you our precious daughter, atlas turner avery!

she was born on thursday september 1, 2016 at 10:22pm and she is perfect. she weighed 7.15 and 21.75 inches long Ā (that’s a loooong baby)!

i have so many thoughts, feelings and emotions (omg postpartum hormones are insane) but in the mean time, my top priorities are keeping this little one alive and learning to be parents with my amazing husband! he truly has been amazing. i think i’ve changed like four diapers…he has been so involved and so caring to both of us it’s overwhelming.

we are making it

we have received such an outpouring of love already on instagram, facebook, texts and calls and all are so appreciated! thank you and can’t wait to fill you in more on her birth because it was truly the hardest and most magical day of my life!
