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.

Matt and I send Christmas cards annually (see last year’s photo in this blog post), but this year we decided to combine our Christmas card shoot with our maternity shoot…  And I think the photos turned out so beautiful.  I’ve already shared several on my Instagram page, but I wanted to take the opportunity to share several more with y’all.

2017 has been a year to remember for us.  It was the year we kicked off living in Vancouver, then back to LA to move into our new home.  We lived in Atlanta for two months while Matt filmed Pitch Perfect 3.  We found out Timeless was cancelled, then got the sweetest surprise ever…  Finding out that we were PREGNANT.  Also we found out that Timeless was renewed for season 2 AND moving to Los Angeles all in the same week.  2017 was also the year we launched our pregnancy podcast, Hello Bump, and found out that we were expecting a little girl.  All in all, 2017 was awesome.

We can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store for us.  Wishing my Gorgeous Family a Happy New Year filled with good health, time with your loved ones and so much love.

We’re not quite ready to let Christmas go at the Lanter house.  We’re still enjoying our decorations, Christmas cookies and classic movies.  We’re trying to squeeze out every last drop of Christmas that we can get, lol.  Honestly, we’re like this every year, but knowing that this was our last Christmas before baby L arrives, makes us want to be sure to really not miss out on anything.

I’ve had the worst leg pains this trimester which has really limited my evening activities.  This is the first year that we’ve been together that we skipped Christmas Eve candlelight church service, but I needed to stay off my feet.  Hopefully next year, we’ll be able to pick up that tradition again.  Otherwise, we held true to every single one of our other Christmas traditions this year (except Disneyland, which my feet absolutely couldn’t handle right now).  Some of those traditions include: baking cookies, going out to look at Christmas lights on Christmas night, breakfast at the Beverly Hills Hotel and more.

Leave a comment below and let me know if you and your family have any special traditions for Christmas that you look forward to each year.  I love getting new ideas from you about different things we could be doing!
