More Iva Pictures

We’ve been putting up a few pictures on facebook and twitter over the past couple of days. There are several there to check out if you’re interested. But my sister was gracious in that she recorded the Event of Iva’s Birth pretty well, using my camera to document the day. I’m sparing you MOST of the pictures here on the ol’ blog — just hitting the highlights, if you will. But there are links at the bottom to the albums containing both the “Condensed” and the “Full Coverage” collections of these photos.

All these images (and all the ones on flickr and facebook and elsewhere) are, for the time being, straight out of the camera. Do you honestly think I have time for photoshop right now? Ha!!





“Happy Birthday, Ivalee.”
“Happy Birthday, Uncle John.”


If she has none of my other features ever, she has my long toes! 🙂







Welcome, Ivalee Grace (The Condensed Version)

Welcome, Ivalee Grace (The Full Coverage Version)

    I’m so proud of you and so happy for you guys. Do you think you’ll post a birth story?

    • Yep, but it’ll take some time to work up. All the gruesome, gory details – designed to scare pregnant women – coming right up!!

      (I’m totally kidding. My birth was textbook and easy, but I still want to write it up.)
