On Thursday, March 4th at 7:51pm, our lives changed in the most amazing way! We welcomed our sweet little girl, Sophie Rae Strickland, into the world. We were surrounded by our family and the room was filled with such happiness, excitement and love. Second to our wedding day, it was the warmest, most joyous day of our lives! She is truly incredible and the greatest blessing that Mark and I have ever been graced with. We are overwhelmed with joy and love for her…and we would like for you to meet her! πŸ™‚
