"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 4: 6-9

Welcome Baby Lily!!

We have been waiting with excitement for my little brother and his wife's first baby girl to arrive! Brooke was a week overdue, and would be induced on Friday March 7th. We arranged for the other 4 cousins to be cared for and we all headed to Jacksonville for Lily's debut! 
Ready to be a Daddy...
2 of 5 caffeinated drinks that day!  
Lily Adalyn made her grand entrance at 11:38pm! She was 8lbs 3oz and 20 1/2 inches long. Beautiful and healthy baby girl! 
Proud parents!
Brooke was a rockstar! She was glowing! Such a proud Mommy!
We got to hold baby Lily shortly after she was born. She never cried, just looked around at everyone, it was precious!!!
Proud auntie's...
We spent the night in Jacksonville at Jacob and Brooke's house and got up early to take them breakfast (really we wanted to be the FIRST one's at the hospital to hold Lily!) We got some quality time with our sweet niece. 
She was so snuggly and sweet! Love her!
Jamie and I had some cute things embroidered for baby Lily in Jacksonville. While Brooke was in labor, we were shopping (sorry Brooke!) We gave Lily her presents the next morning.
Lily and Brooke were doing so well, they got to come home on Sunday! Here's my sweet little niece ready for her first car ride!
We are sad that we don't live in the same city, but are grateful for technology so we can get sweet pictures everyday and FaceTime too! Here's a cute one we got recently! Isn't she a doll?! Welcome to the world Lily Adalyn! We love you so much!
