Our new love...
At 5:27pm today, Lillie Anna will be 2 weeks old...gosh, she's growing TOO FAST! The knowledge that she is our last child makes me want to just push pause and breathe in every single moment! I'm trying to memorize Shepherd and Rauly's adorable reactions to her and capture in my heart each sweet yawn, sigh and coo that she makes. God has blessed us with an easy little girl...I know if she cries that she either needs a diaper change or she needs to nurse...that is a FAR CRY from our last child (ahem...Rauly...), and although Shepherd was an easy, happy baby,...Lillie Anna is proving to be even more laid back!

My mom and Mike came and stayed with us for one week. While they were here, my mom homeschooled Shepherd for me and she and Mike occupied Shep and Rauly with trips to the pool, Chuck-E-Cheese, and the park....
...So that I could do this... :)
Before I end this post (and I do have to end it...Lillie Anna is still sleeping but Shep and Rauly need me)...let me just take this moment to say how much I ADORE the doctor who delivered Lillie as well as the nurse who took care of us! Each birth experience has been a positive one, but Lillie Anna's definitely takes the cake - Chad and I have nothing but WONDERFUL things to say about St. Vincents labor and delivery as well as their maternity floor...professional, caring, thorough and kind! Dr. Raspa prayed with us before he broke my water and asked God's protection over the delivery...wow, that was a wonderful way to start the morning and just set the tone for how things went that day!

And thank you all for your sweet comments about Lillie Anna's upcoming MRI and surgery - Chad and I appreciate your prayers so much!
