18 1/2 ” long
Born at Baylor Scott & White in Fort Worth, Texas
Momma Ryann had a natural birth at Baylor Hospital with Daddy right beside her holding her hand and telling her the most encouraging words. Annabelle made her appearance within 11 minutes of being in the labor and delivery room, so needless to say it was a scramble to get everything prepped and ready. She was ready to be Earth-side. Annabelle made her appearance with a full head of hair and the cutest little baby cries, but as soon as she was skin to skin with momma she turned those cries into baby coo’s. And, of course, it melted all of our hearts.
Welcome to the World Sweet Little One!!
It was quite the dreary morning as I walked into the hospital, I barely made it inside before a massive storm blew through.
Annabelle was #1 for the day! And #1 in her new parents heart!
We went from zero to 90 miles in a matter of minutes, she was pushing before they were even done setting up. Annabelle was ready to come out!
I love that Daddy kept wiping her face and making sure she was ok. Once little Annabelle starting to crown I could hear the proud battle cries from daddy to momma!
There she is – born at 7:17am. And those baby fresh rolls gave us all heart eyes.
She had the Popeye look down!!
Kisses for his new little lady!
You did it momma, you are powerful and amazing.
Starbucks is certainly needed after just giving birth. Ryann’s mom brought in light snacks while Annabelle was getting cleaned up and all her measurements done.
Annabelle was 7.12 lbs and 18 1/2 inches long. She was a little petite thing! But oh so cute!
It took the nurse 4 tires to get her footprints because she kept wiggling her little toes.
Both grandma’s patiently waiting their turn to hold little Miss Annabelle.
Daddy loving on his girls, he was so proud and in love!
By time I left the hospital, it was a downpour. The front desk nurse gave me a trash bag to make it from the hospital to the parking garage. However, the garage did make the perfect spot to snap those last few images for their gallery. We love making sure my new parents have a story to tell from their birth, so give me all those little details and location shots! It was so fun capturing Ryann’s natural birth at Baylor Hospital.
I can not wait to see what mountains you move little one, you are truly the apple of your daddy’s eye and the love of your mothers heart! You have the whole world at your fingertips!
