Oh my goodness, you guys, where has the time gone??  I can’t believe it’s been (over) 4 months since Lilly entered our lives, and it’s amazing how much she has changed in that amount of time!  She  has always brought a smile to our faces, but this last month, her personality is really coming out, I mean, just look at that face in that picture! 😀

Welcome to the World Lillian Sophia

welcome newborn lillyAs I sit here typing this, I am overwhelmed by emotions–Our sweet baby girl (finally) came into the world on Wednesday, October 19th at 4:03pm!  At 19 inches long, 7 lb. 7 oz (and 9 days fashionably late!), Lillian Sophia “Lilly” has completely stolen our hearts.  Not that she hadn’t, already, but M. and I had no idea just how much we would fall even more in love upon her arrival!
