My girls...


Rauly had her "Farm Day" Festival at Sharing Tree Preschool yesterday! Unfortunately, I was unable to attend with her due to Lillie Anna's MRI, so I made sure to get a picture of her before leaving the house. She was so excited - I just love that girl! :)

After dropping Rauly off, I raced home to start making Spinach Bread for Mindy's Wedding Brunch on Saturday...it came out of the oven about 5 minutes before we left for the hospital. Jenny got off work early to help us with Shepherd (thank you Jenny!), and Lillie Anna was admitted at Wolfsons around noon. I posted some pictures of our time there. We haven't gotten the results yet, but are hoping we'll know something today. Thank you for everyone who remembered our little girl in prayer - we are grateful!

Waiting so patiently after she was admitted. She hadn't eaten for about 6 hours at this point and she was still so sweet and calm. By the end of the day, she wound up going about 10 hours without eating...she never cried, and the rare moment when she fussed at all, a paci would quiet her immediately. I'm tellin' ya...she's a dream baby!

This was taken about 3 minutes before the nurses took her back for her MRI. She was given an oral sedative which tasted like cinnamon red-hots...she gagged and cried for about 5 minutes while they gave her the sedative. I couldn't even speak to comfort her b/c I was so emotional. Thankfully the sedative worked though, and they did not have to give her any i.v. anesthetic! Praise God!

Trying to wake up after her MRI...it took nearly two hours for her to open her eyes.

Itty-bitty Blood Pressure cuff...


On a different note, Jenny was scrolling through old blog posts from when Rauly Marie was a baby, and found this picture of her. She emailed the comparison of her and Lillie Anna and we were surprised at how much they look alike! What do YOU think??

Wow---can't believe how much Lillie Anna and Rauly look alike!!! Guess it's a sure thing: Lillie Anna is destined for beauty like her gorgeous sister. You and Chad have trouble coming!!!

As for your time at Wolfson's....if it had been me I would have requested a dose of that sedative too! I know it was tough.

I love the top photo of Rauly-girl! I can't help smile when I see her picture! What a doll.
love all the Easons!!!

Dear ALL, Been praying for Lillie and all of you. I started crying as I was reading this psot and looking and your precious girls. I am so Thankful to God that they did not have to give the baby any other anesthesia and that she came through it ok. I am in great hopes that the results will prove there is nothing to be concerned about. Thank You for keeping us posted.

What a trooper!! I can't believe she went 10 hours without eating without even crying... what a sweet baby! Glad that the sedative worked and that it's all over. When will you know the results? I was praying for you guys.

Lillie Anna really does favor Rauly! They are both so beautiful! And I LOVE Rauly's polka dota and pom-poms outfit...so cute! We'll be praying for good results from the test!
