This sweet baby boy made his grand entrance on the last day of May. There were a million amazing things about this experience for me… Memphis’ parents are amazing. His momma, Sierra, was in labor for more than 24 hours. She was amazing and strong. His daddy was so supportive! He never left mom’s side and advocated for her every step of the way.
They are a military family so Sierra’s parents were not present physically for the birth but they stayed on the phone with her through it all. They even facetimed and coached her through a few contractions. One of the things that makes Memphis’ grand entrance so special is that he was born on his grandfather’s birthday! How awesome is that?
After being at the hospital for so many hours and spending so much time with Chris and Sierra I didn’t think I could adore their family any more… until I met big sister Berlin. She was so, so precious and it was so clear how much love this family has for each other. Memphis is a very lucky little guy!
Sierra and Chris… Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your special day. It was an honor to be there on Memphis’ birthday and to tell your story.
There are many, many photos in this post but I just had to do their story justice. Enjoy!
