Day 2 and Day 3 with my New Girlfriend


I could take a bite out of those rose bud lips!

She has eyelashes! Oh, what fun it is to have a girl!
You know God must have fun knitting babies together in their momma's bellies. Won't it be fun to know these kinds of mysteries when we are in heaven?

"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb."
Psalm 139:13






Reece holds her and stares at her for ages. He is head over heels. The other two are still into other things but Reece would rather be holding her than playing the Wii. That's big time.

Reece told Chase yesterday that he loves to hold her. So sweet! Looks like Daddy will not be the only one wrapped around that sweet little finger!

She's breathtaking Stephanie! I love her sweet cheeks ;) she looks so tiny in that big bed, haha! It's amazing how small they start out :)

Take it easy...looks like you have some super cute and eager helpers to offer a hand! She's so sweet!

I love the swaddled pic just as my Sister...guess it reminds of us of Addie. Allen used to wrap her so tight I felt she would NEVER breathe again! Mentioning Addie, can we get an arranged marriage contract with Reece right now??!!? Love him and his gentle ways....Hope is beautiful...

from the pictures you've so lovingly and ably captured and shared of your firstborn, it's no surprise that he's taken to his sister with steadfast, serious adoration (very recent case in point: just check him out in the first picture of the previous post!).

wondering how you are feeling......whether you are getting some sleep.....whether the shock of saturday's bodily pain has settled into a quiet gratitude and healing.....whether you can still recite philippians or if such a tremendous feat of memorization regretfully slips away in a matter of days (sorry, but that's a serious question of mine, as I am eager to tackle memorization but wonder both whether I could actually do it and if it truly sticks)...

so many thoughts and so much love to you and your beautiful family (of five!) from charlottesville ~

She is so sweet! I love the photo of her on the big bed. How tiny she is... how soon we forget! I see a little bit of Lake in her.. the eyes maybe? Reece is gonna be a great big brother!
