From Alexis, our new mommy : Luciana “Lulu” was born on August 14, 2018 at 10:33 a.m. weighing 9 pounds and eleven ounces, and measuring 20 3/4 inches long.  I was in labor for just over 24 hours before she was born. I went into labor on a Monday morning when I was 40 weeks and 4 days pregnant. My husband had just left for work when I realized the cramps I was feeling were actually coming in waves and getting stronger and stronger. I called him and told him it was time to go around 11:00 am. I still felt ok so I showered and labored at home for a little while, and we decided to head to the hospital when my contractions were about 3 minutes apart, around 4:00 pm. Once we got to the hospital I was 3 centimeters dilated and the contractions were getting stronger. I walked the labor and delivery floor halls with my husband and two aunts who were cheering me on.  The contractions kind of stalled a bit and I hadn’t dilated any more after a couple hours so around 1:00 am the doctor suggested pitocin and I asked for an epidural.  After that we all got some rest. The doctor came in to check me at 8:00 am and I was fully dilated and almost ready to push. She broke my water and at around 9:30 a.m. I started pushing. Pushing was the best part! I loved seeing the progress I was making and being able to feel the baby’s head was so encouraging! I will never forget the moment she came out and I got to hold her for the first time. I wish I could relive that moment over and over again. The first few weeks of being a mom have been so incredibly wonderful. I love everything about being a mom and I am so thankful to Tiffani for capturing the most special time in mine and my husband’s lives.

FROM OUR MOMMY // How blessed are we! We waited patiently for the right time in our lives to welcome this baby – a time where our hearts could be full and fully available. The timing, the journey, everything, has fallen so perfectly into place, we are constantly in gratitude. Although a bit overwhelmed with our lack of knowledge and experience (as any first-time parents are), we are ecstatic to welcome Baby Ng very, very soon! We hope only to do our best in raising a kind, patient, and loving person – so much of what we need in this world today. Hopefully the journey ahead is (as close to as) smooth as the one we’ve had so far (yeah right, but it doesn’t hurt to hope!). As our lives change drastically, we look forward to making many more beautiful memories from a couple to now a family of 3!

FROM THE MOMMY TO BE //  Jared and I met in high school, but started dating in our mid-twenties.  After dating for seven years, we were married in June of 2017 in Los Cabos, Mexico.  We decided to wait a few months to try and get pregnant, and on our first real month of trying in November 2017 we did it! We were both shocked at how quickly it happened for us, but absolutely overjoyed.  Being pregnant has been the most beautiful and wonderful experience of my life. I have enjoyed every second of being pregnant, even with all the aches and pains. Watching my body grow and create new life amazes me every day, which is why it was so important to me to capture the way I look with photographs, so that I can always look back on this time in our lives. I am so excited to become a mommy! I have always loved children and have been surrounded by babies my whole life. Sometimes I still cannot believe its my turn to be a mom! I am most excited for that very first moment after our little girl is born when I get to hold her and look into her eyes for the first time.  I also cannot wait to see Jared become a daddy.  I know he is going to be amazing and I already find myself falling more and more in love with him every day.   I am also excited to watch our little Luciana grow into her own person and see the type of person she will become.

FROM OUR MOMMY // Scott and I met online in Spring of 2014, and little did we know that a month after our wedding in October 2017, we would be blessed with our little boy. The last 8 months have been a complete whirlwind of settling into married life while preparing to become parents at the same time. In the midst of the whirlwind, our baby boy has been the constant joy in our lives. Every kick, roll and hiccup reminds us of how blessed we are that he arrived so quickly to us. We’ve been so lucky to have so many people, including grandparents, family and friends share in our complete joy. We can’t wait to meet him and experience this next stage of our lives together!
