Happy 4th Birthday, Lilly!!

I cannot believe how the time has flown!! It seems I just met my husband yesterday, and now I have three children!! I was so excited when I found out I was pregnant with my second and even more excited to learn that she was a girl!! I already knew her name would be Lilly. I love using family names and Lilly is Lillian after my mom's mom. I never knew her as she passed when my mom was 17. Reese is her middle name after Cory's grandfather.
Here Lilly is this morning about to enjoy her birthday pancakes. Cory and I painted the plate at a paint your own pottery place.

Here Lilly is in her hospital photo. That is the same green blanket in the picture above. She is our little Linus.

Lilly was so tiny that she wouldn't fit in her dress that we had for her to wear home. I decided rather than her look like she was playing dress up that we would go for something simple. We just used her blanket and some lilies from a gorgeous bouquet that Cory's work sent. I love the look and the way she looks like she's puckering up.
Happy Birthday, Baby Girl!! We love you!!
