Petra Elizabeth

On February 23, 2015, the best thing happened to us. Our daughter was born! In the last year, we've done and seen some amazing things, but all of that pales in comparison to the joy our Petra Elizabeth brings us everyday. It's incredible how something so small can bring so much happiness. She's currently only 11 pounds and fits easily in our lap, but the fact that she is a living, breathing creature that was created from nothing is just incredible. She blows my mind every day by simply being. And the sweetness of holding her while she sleeps on my chest? Don't get me started. I don't think there's a better high in the world.

Catherine, I've been following your blog off and on through the years since Jerusalem and I just wanted to de-lurk and say that you and your baby girl are beautiful and Petra is such a beautiful name!
