Welcome to the World Baby Girl Angela Lanter Hello Gorgeous

This past Saturday, December 30th, 2017, at 8:38 pm we welcomed our sweet baby girl into the world.  I’d like to introduce you to MacKenlee Faire Lanter.  She made her entrance weighing in at 6 lbs. 11 oz and 20″ long.

We’ll be recapping my birth story as well as the meaning behind her name on upcoming episodes of Hello Bump.  MacKenlee never did turn from her frank breech position, so I delivered her via Cesarean after laboring for more than 13 hours.  We stayed in the hospital until Tuesday and have been recovering at home since.  Our sweet baby girl is so perfect with her head full of spikey, dark hair and the most beautiful skin tone I’ve ever seen.

Mama and MacKenlee are doing so well.  We have a house full of family in town visiting and taking good care of us.  Daddy is so in love with his new baby girl.  It melts my heart when I see them together.  Matt is already the best daddy, pitching in however he can.

Thank you for following along on this pregnancy journey with us.  The past nine months have flown by and now our sweet little angel baby is already here in our arms.

    So many congrats to you all! I sincerely hope Matt is getting enough time off from work to enjoy these precious days. I know you will be the best parents ever to this pretty girl. When my first was born and all the family went home and hubby was back to a regular work schedule, I went through major anxiety. If that happens, remember that God has got you girl! The Serenity prayer became (and still is) my “Mommy Mantra” for the hard days. Sending you much love! XOXO

    So happy for you! I’m crying tears of joy and remembering when I had my baby just 7 short months ago. She’s beautiful with all that hair and those perfect little baby lips!! Congrats momma!

  21. Congratulations to y’all!! I’m so glad everything went well with your labor and c section! You are a rockstar for laboring and then going through the c-section. I hope you are recovering well and soaking up this special time with your precious little girl. Those first few weeks are exhausting but they go by so fast! I love the name and that head full of dark hair! My daughter had a ton of hair too, I loved it!

    Can’t wait to hear the birth story on the podcast and all about the meaning of her name!

    Congratulations! And I love the name. I come from a family of unique names and love when others find ones as well. I was really hoping she turned but happy mom and baby are healthy. She is a cutie and looks like the 2 of you combined. I know the next few weeks will be slow going, but you get that much needed rest. Us Gorgeous Girls aren’t going anywhere.

    Congratulations, Angela! Your baby girl is so precious. God is so good <3

    I listened to your interview with Cheryl Scruggs and you mentioned that your aunt used to give you books on marriage to prepare you to be married one day. I was wondering if you could suggest a few books on preparing for marriage? I'm reading The Right One by Jimmy Evans right now and it's really helpful and eye-opening but I would like to read more books on that topic. I appreciate your help 🙂

    Such a precious photo! I Also love your robe. I have a couple different robes, and they are some of my favorite pieces of clothing that I own. xo
