Lillian is about to be 2 weeks old on Saturday. Time has gone by fast. We are enjoying having our new little daughter home with us. I am learning that time goes by so quickly with a new little one. People used to tell me when they had their new babies they did not have time to brush their teeth until noon. I never thought I would be in those shoes, but yesterday my teeth did not get brushed until lunch!

While we were in the Hospital many friends and family came to great Lillian into the world. My fabulous friend Lindsey came and cleaned my house, bought groceries and did laundry for me! This was the most wonderful gift and it made coming home so nice! Thank you, Lindsey.

My Mom stayed with us to help get us on our feet by doing laundry, making breakfast and watching Lilly while I took a shower! I really enjoyed having her stay. It is a lot of adjustment at first bringing your first child home.

Lillian is sleeping really well at night and eating every 2 1/2 to 3 hours. We have had many fun visitors in the past 2 weeks. Both grandparents, Grams and Gramps - My Mom and Dad and Nana and Grandad - Rusty's Mom and Dad have been by to hold Lillian. Rusty's Sister Sara and her family came on Saturday and My best friend Shelly came on Sunday. Shelly made a long trip to see Miss Lilly all the way from Tyler, TX! We do not get to hangout very much, so it was a big treat to visit on Sunday morning.

We have been overwhelmed with the love from all of our friends and family during this time. Meals have been brought to our home every day from our Sunday School class and our Church family which has been a huge blessing. We can not wait to bring Lillian to Church and meet everyone. I hope to share with you more, but I must go for now.

Have a wonderful Valentine's Day!
