Looking good! It's been a blissful month for Teen Mom star Catelynn Lowell, who welcomed her second daughter Novalee Reign on New Year's Day with longtime fiance Tyler Baltierra.
On Monday, Jan. 26, Lowell, 22, posed with friend and adoption consultant Dawn Baker in a Twitter photo.
"Precious time holding & snuggling #NovaleeReignBaltierra today and catching up with her sweet mama @CatelynnLowell xo," Baker captioned the photo of the reality star and her baby girl's tiny feet.
Lowell and Baltierra placed their first daughter Carly up for adoption in 2009. The difficult decision was documented on 16 and Pregnant and the MTV spin-off Teen Mom.
The couple have become adoption advocates, attending events and talking with teens about their options in pregnancy. Baker was the couple's adoption counselor, and the trio have remained close ever since.
Though she doesn't regret the decision to put Carly up for adoption, Lowell is savoring her new role as a hands-on parent.
"Love it when my Nova sleeps for five hours at night!! #mommylife," she tweeted on Jan. 27, adding, "My little family is amazing."
Baltierra is equally enamored, Instagramming a picture of her tiny hands and writing, "I promise to always hold your hand through this life. I promise to never let go. I promise to love and guide you until the end of time. I love her little hands...she's just perfect #NovaleeReign #MyTootie."
