here comes eli

Yep, that's my girl labor. She's my superwoman. After months of not taking, but teaching Jazzercise with "Baby Boy" in tow, she and Kelly finally made it to their special day at Durham Regional.

The scene in the waiting room was all smiles too (minus the pain, unless you count the pain of waiting). Grandpa Mike tried to concentrate on the game with the boys for some distraction, but we all know he was jumping up and down on the inside.

The waiting room erupted when we finally received word of some action. "7lbs, 11oz" was the text message from the new daddy that sent the family and friends in that room into a frenzy a little before 12:30 a.m. on March 24.

Eli Samuel Davis, only a few minutes after his birth.

Congratulations Stacey and Kelly! We looooooove baby Eli and can't wait to watch him grow!

little lexie

it's amazing how quickly our world can change. just a few weeks ago, i dropped in on laura and stephen and watched them laugh and dream about their baby girl on the way. now she's here, and lexie kay clayton is even more beautiful than i'm sure even they could imagine.

i stopped in on them again today for another fun photo shoot and she and her parents are doing great. she was even more gorgeous today than she was when i first met her. (i'll post those photos soon...forgive me for being behind! i started drafting this post in the waiting room at durham regional hospital on monday night, but was interrupted at 12:15 a.m. when roxboro baby #2 entered this world (stay tuned for baby eli too!).)

welcome to the world lexie kay!!!

stacey & kelly

when i got into photography, i imagined spending my time documenting special moments for those around me. i did not imagine that a short time later, i'd be documenting my best friend's journey into motherhood. i mean, other people do this kind of thing all the time, but us?! wow. here comes life!

i'm so excited for stacey and kelly. they were both born to be parents, and although they've refused to tell anyone what baby boy's real name will be when he arrives, i know that whoever he is, he will be born into the most adoring hands possible...then he'll be passed around to hundreds more adoring hands as soon as this community gets the chance to welcome him!

he's a thumb sucker!

baby buck's soon to be favorite place to hang (if he has any of his parents' blood at all).

finally, the only prego I know who has enough ups to make this one look real!

love you both. can't wait to meet baby boy davis!!!
