Preslee Bell Turner has arrived!

I have been dying to share these pictures of my best friends precious little girl, Preslee, who was born on Tuesday morning!

Isn’t she gorgeous? I love her dark hair!

6lbs 13 ounces, 20 inches long

Julee went into labor late Monday night (and it’s quite the crazy story that she will soon share), so we all headed to the hospital around 2am on Tuesday morning to await Preslee’s arrival!

We all guessed delivery time, weight and length for Preslee while we waited.

I went back-up to the hospital Tuesday evening and took Preslee (her parents and grandparents) her first birthday cake from Rick’s Bakery. :)

I can’t help but look at Preslee and be overwhelmed when thinking that SHE is the baby we prayed for as Julee went through 2 years of infertility. She is an answer to so many prayers, and we are so thankful and so excited that she is finally here!

Hope y'all have a great weekend!

Jennifer - Julee has such a great story. In reading all you girls blogs I use to wonder how Julee managed SO many baby showers, parties etc . . . I prayed for her. I remember being single for so long and attending SO many weddings. It was hard. You are in pain but also so happy for your friends joy. It just blesses my heart to see this precious little one.
