Lily is out!

The excitement built up like one block upon another. Then, when I saw my little baby cousin for the first time, the small tower of excitement burst up into a sky scraper. I couldn’t stop smiling as I wiggled her ear lobe. Everyone laughed. I laughed. It’s contagious.
My cousin ENTERED the world!

Aunt Michelle described her situation not as stressing or as scary, but ‘spooky’. She breast fed for 20 minutes after Lily came out. Finally we got to enter the room, and see the little critter for real. Before we were only viewing pictures and a video uncle Brad showed us. Michelle’s little ‘rubber baby’ Stuck her tongue out at all her relatives in want of seconds on milk.

Brad is going to have her as an assistant for his magic shows. My goal is to teach her how to ride a unicycle before she tries a bike. Everyone is thinking of Lily. Lily. That name is from Song of Solomon 2:1-2:

I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys. As the lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters.

Dan, Nathan, Renae, Dad and Mom, Aunt Jamie, Uncle Brian, Grandma, me, and of course, Brad and Machelle, circled up and prayed for the new life. Nathan played the song he made for the occasion, and we all held the baby. This gathering definitely tightened the family bond.
The excitement is dying down now; my eyelids droop as if they had cartons of rice milk pinned to them. It’s time to go to bed now, and time to think about the day. I can’t wait to change her diapers! ;)

    Oh my gosh! I heard that she was born like a week after she was. I was kind of disappointed that I didn’t get all the details and that no one called me the day of her birth. Oh well, I still love all off u! See you this Christmas!
    Love from ur favorite cousin, Lydia!

    Hi Lydia,
    I’m sorry you didn’t get all the details and that you didn’t get a call telling you she was born when she was. :( I tried calling you to tell on that day several times but I guess you weren’t home. Then I wanted to try again the next day or so, but I figured by then someone would have told you… oh well…

    Can’t wait to see you this Christmas!! I hope to give you a call some time soon.

    Love ya!
    -Renae
