Forgive me for the delay, but we’ve been slightly busy falling in love with this little thing. ;)

Introducing…

Annie Rae Boswell

Born October 16th at 8:12 am // 6 pounds, 14 ounces // 19 inches long

We are so. smitten. ❤️ Everything went as smooth as could be, and we are all home feeling great. God is so good!

I completely underestimated how obsessed I would be with her. 💕

As if he wasn’t attractive enough already…😉😍

The photo above was probably my favorite 15 minutes of life. All the visitors and nurses had gone, and it was just the three of us snuggling on my hospital bed. My heart was exploding and desperately trying to soak up every second. I wish I could go back to this moment over and over! ❤️

Good news – Jack absolutely adores her. ❤️ He constantly wants to be licking her (we’re trying to keep his tongue away from her face as much as possible, don’t worry lol), and he whines or howls sadly when she cries. They are going to be the cutest BFFs.

I’ll post more soon about our hospital stay, birth story, first week home, etc. And obviously there are about 8,000 more photos to come. ;)

Annie – meaning grace, favored, and prayer.
Rae – meaning grace.

The name Annie is descended from Anna, the woman in the Bible who worshipped and prayed endlessly at the temple and saw the Lord Jesus. The name Anna is descended from Hannah, who prayed for a child until the Lord opened her womb. My prayer and hope for my baby girl is that she will be like both Anna and Hannah – faithfully taking everything to the Lord in prayer.

Two of my heroes and greatest prayer warriors are my grandmothers – Anna Greta Wiley and Dorothy Grace Ulrich. The month that they both started praying about our trying to have a baby was the month we finally got pregnant. Andrew’s sweet grandmother is Elizabeth Ann Holt – one of the most generous people alive with a huge heart for family.

I love that our baby girl will be named after such Godly women – women of compassion, prayer, and grace. She’ll be born a little legacy baby. ❤️

We can’t wait to meet you, baby girl. 💕
