Well friends - she's here!
I had been
After packing my hospital bag, I really wanted to compile all my favorite little morning and evening prayers into a little personal prayer booklet that I could tuck in my hospital bag - rather than packing all of my books or having to whittle books down in an attempt to economize space.
I printed, made covers and tabbed dividers using a pretty scrapbook paper, punched and bound with my Proclick. Ah! Pretty and oh-so-tuckable!
She's just darling, and Rob and I are blessed! We named her Lauren Marie (and as is usual, this will be the only post with her real name! Henceforward, she will be known here as Elly). She's doing great and I'm feeling great with her on the OUTSIDE! The kids are enamored!
She was baptized last Saturday...
Well...there you have it! Our joy-filled week last week! I thought I'd share just a few pictures of her first week with you and then slip into the quiet again as we enjoy her preciousness!
I must confess - 5 years ago after our little Doodlebug, I really didn't think there would be another baby announcement on this blog again. (And by the way....if you click back to Doodlebug's birth announcement, you will see an uncanny resemblance between Katie and Lauren!) I'm 42 now, and it just didn't look like we'd be able to welcome another little one. With prayer, we were content. And then...we were surprised. :) And now...we're overjoyed!
Now, in your goodness, please go pray for my dear friend who is due any minute with another Snow baby!
