sweet baby jorja

friday: july 11th


of all days to take a LONG nap, davey chose yesterday…. when all i wanted to do was get out of the house to meet sweet baby jorja! i am, however, VERY thankful that he took a long nap (almost 3 hours). AND i’m VERY THANKFUL that he slept through the night on wednesday night. yes. i put him in his crib around 8:15 p.m. and didn’t need to go in there again until 6:15 a.m. i am grateful for antibiotics…. because i got a little over 7 hours of sleep without any interruptions. ahhhhhhhh. but, as usual, i’m straying off topic. 


around 1 o’clock we made our way over to grandpa & grandma’s house. we rode into bellingham with them (they wanted to meet jorja, as well), and after a small errand and then the need to stop at target for some baby girl goodies, we were on our way to the hospital to meet jorja dyck. we arrived around 3 (dave met us there) and took turns going in to meet jorja (kids under the age of 12 can only go into the rooms with newborns if they are the siblings of the newborn).


as dave and i walked down the hallway to their room (they were WAAAAAAAY down there), we crossed paths with a woman in the midst of painful labor. she was out in the hallway taking the smallest of baby shuffle steps… i could READ THE PAIN AND DISCOMFORT on her face… and i was quickly TERRIFIED of looking like that in 4 short months. and then we arrived at tim & carrilee’s room and my mindset changed instantly….


dave and i got to meet jorja about an hour before the family was planning to head home. but the timing was great. jorja was awake. and talking. and she is so sweet. she has blonde hair. and dark blue eyes. and she is a beautiful baby. an absolute doll. 



and now, i am reminded that the pain and discomfort of childbirth is all worth it. the tiny life. precious, sweet, adorable, tender, helpless… and the joy of knowing that i’m going to have a little girl to hold in 4 short months… what a joy. what a privilege. and i am excited. 


i love you, sweet baby jorja!

  1. Super Super Cute! Thanks for posting the pix as I haven’t gotten a chance to go over and meet that sweet girl yet!! :) Very fun for the two of you to have baby girls so close together! Jaden won’t know what to do with himself!! At least he’ll have to Davey to play with and Emma can play with the girls in a few short years! So fun.

  2. Glad to hear the antibiotics are taking effect on Davey’s ears. Yay!!!! Cami and I thought Jorja was absolutely perfect, too…reminded me of how perfect Davey was on his first day. Jorja’s blonde hair took me totally by surprise – I just expected dark everything, like Henry. I think that in a few years, Cami’s going to be busy taking little girls shopping…she can’t wait!!!

  3. Oh, she’s beautiful!!! Thanks for sharing the great photos with us. Can’t wait to see pics of the two girls together. How fun! =)
