1 week old

Our little Brooke is 1 week old today. This 1st week has been full of ups and downs, but I'm happy to say each day gets a little easier than the last.

It was difficult being in the hospital for 5 days. I was never able to get comfortable and sleep as I would have liked. Plus, Brooke was fussy and restless at times. Since we've been home, she has been the perfect baby. She rarely ever cries or fusses.

I'm so thankful to God for our sweet baby girl.

Brooke LaRue

We are proud to announce the arrival of our daughter, Brooke LaRue.

Brooke arrived on November 16th at 2:52pm. She weighed 6lb 7oz and was 18 in long. Both her mommy and daddy are smitten with her. She has especially already won the heart of her daddy. If Brooke had waited just another day to arrive, her daddy may have had to break his attendance streak to the home UGA games.

Thanks to all of you that have prayed for us throughout this pregnancy. It's been a difficult journey to get to this point, but we are so very thankful to God for giving us this precious little girl.

Happy Anniversary

Two years ago today, I married my best friend. I cannot say married life has always been easy. We have had some stressful events that have pulled us apart. But we also had a tragedy that brought us closer together. Not only have we grown closer, but we have both grown closer to God and I am glad that I can say He is the center of our marriage.

I know I still have a lot to work on as a wife. I do not tell Trey often enough how much he means to me or how much I appreciate him. He has been a wonderful husband especially the last few months as I am able to do less and less as I get further along in this pregnancy.

Thank you, Trey, for being a supportive husband. Not many men would be willing to do all that you do. Thank you for the changes you have made in your life since we first met that have allowed you to become the spiritual leader of our family. I love you so very much and look forward to spending the rest of my life with you.
