tune my heart.





Oh, hi there. This little girl and I are having fun together and slowly settling into a routine. At over three weeks old, her personality is already starting to show through. She makes so many different faces and her looks seem to constantly change. My favorite times of day are the moments where she is calm and bright-eyed and stares right at me while I talk to her.

Clint wrote a welcome letter to Margo with some details about her birth. It was meant just for her, but he finally agreed to let me share it: here.

Happy Easter! Thanks to this baby to cuddle and a bag full of Cadbury mini eggs, our weekend is looking pretty sweet already.

  8. she truly is beautiful. that first picture has so much personality already.


    and that letter? I can't even ...


    welcome to mama-hood. I have been thinking of you, often. I hope you are healing well, both physically and emotionally. those first several weeks can really be the best and the worst. I know you have an army of people who love you, but if you even need an ear ...

  17. Beautiful letter from Clint. I might have teared up a little.. :)

    And she's a beauty. You can totally tell she belongs to Clint in that first photo!

  18. love the letter, clint! she is absolutely beautiful xx

    ReplyDelete
  19. what a fantastic letter, clint.

    and having a c-section before hours of labor was probably a good idea. i went 27 hours bf they wheeled me in... and it wasn't great. (and those drugs! so awful. and the recovery! woof. i feel for you, angela!)

    she is stunning. margo is the perfect name for her, too.

    ReplyDelete
  20. What a cute little girl! She definitely takes after both parents, but I see a lot of Clint in her.

    That letter was great. I liked the C-sected part, too.

  30. Clint may not be much of a cry-er but I am and that totally made me tear up. What a sweet letter. She's going to love having that as she grows up!

    Also, I think Margo might be mini-Clint.

    ReplyDelete
  31. i can't believe she is only a few weeks old! there is so much life and wisdom in her little eyes. what a beauty!

    happy happy easter to you and clint and your little bunny!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Now I want to hear your birth story! How did you feel and what did you think about the birth? And she is so perfect. I'm so happy for you. Isn't motherhood awesome. Terrible, too. But we'll just focus on the awesome parts.

    ReplyDelete
  36. she is seriously so amazingly beautiful. and your husband's letter was one of the sweetest letters i have ever read. it sounds like hes a good dad and your a wonderful mother as well. hope the c-section recovery is going well!

    1. yep, she looks 98% like clint i think. nobody has yet said she looks like me...

      Delete
    2. when i was little, i looked 90% like my dad. and now all grown up, i look 90% my mum. puberty is funny like that. :)

      btw: when kate said margo resembled you in the last pic, i took a second look. she does look like her mama in it. so i think it is already there but not as obvious.

  42. Everything about this tugged at my heart strings! I couldn't help but think about my baby, June. What a sweet letter and a beautiful face!!

    ReplyDelete

    and that letter your hubby wrote is precious.

    ReplyDelete
  44. that was the sweetest letter i've ever read! she will cherish that forever!! & oh my goodness she is the prettiest newborn!!! love her cute face!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. She is Clint's clone in that first photo!!! So precious, so adorable, so pretty. I love her. These photos seem to capture her cute little personality. I can't believe she's only three weeks!

    That letter was just so sweet. Got me teary too. You and Clint are such great writers and have such a way with words. What a darling, darling family you have.

    I hope Margo's hair doesn't fall out! Oliver's fell out around five months for a little bit. :)

    1. thanks shalynna.

      and i'm pretty sure her hair is going to fall out... it already has. and it's already lightened a bit. i think she might even end up being a blondie like her dad was. weird!

  46. Of course I am sobbing, that is so beautiful, Clint.

    She does looks SO much like Clint in the first photo and so much like you in the last! She is so beautiful. She is so perfect.

  55. If you're not at Mom's tomorrow, you're in trouble. I need to hold that baby some more.

    PS There is something about that first photo that is so familiar to me. When I first saw it I just stared at it like I've seen it before. Perhaps your genes are beginning to surface?

  63. she is too much cuteness. congratulations! (love her name. margo is my first choice girl name, but aaron and i can't seem to agree on a spelling. margo, margot, margaux... too many options!)

    ReplyDelete
  64. She seems so wise on the first photo :) doesn't she look like a mini-Clint ? Anyway, she's absolutely cute, and that letter is just perfect. Made me cry like a baby (well, not that loud :))

    ReplyDelete
  65. boy, does she ever look like her daddy! she is so sweet; such a beautiful baby!

    that letter is wonderful.

    and, i was induced early because of high blood pressure as well. just a week or so before you.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Oh, margo, you get cuter and cuter. What a sweet letter! Thanks for letting us read it, Clint. It wasn't surprising, though. I knew you guys would be awesome parents. xo

    ReplyDelete
  67. What a beautiful little girl! Thanks for sharing the letter, I'm currently pregnant (so maybe a tad over emotional) but it brought more than one tear to my eye.

    ReplyDelete
  68. The letter was simply beautiful. I'm not pregnant (just intense baby fever), but that letter brought tears to my eyes. Little Margo is soo blessed to have such loving parents. Thank you for sharing and congratulations!!!

  74. Stunning little one. WOW. Especially those eyes!

  75. Such a wonderful letter from her papa. Thanks for sharing, Angela and Clint. It's amazing how every birth you read about, just brings you back to the emotions of your own child's birth. Such a beautiful memory for sweet Margo. I keep a notebook by my bed to write special things that happen or to write about funny pronunciations of words.
    Enjoy your amazing journey as a family. :)
