Lily Days are Here to Stay (Baby Update)

Amber and I just returned from a quick visit to the hospital to see Anne-Marie and family, including little Miss Lily (it isn’t official but the name has stuck so far!). Mama and baby are doing great, with baby clocking in at 6 pounds 2 oz and 19 inches. But let’s just cut to the chase; the chase, of course, being a gratuitous amount of adorable baby pictures. =)

    The power of a woman to bring new life into this world is mind-boggling. No matter what she endures or how many years may pass, a mother does not forget the first second she lays her eyes on her newborn baby. “Love at First Sight” does not really describe the immenseness of this single moment in time.

    I can so clearly recall the day my first son was born 31 years ago this month, and the subsequent births of my daughters and youngest son. Although I will never experience this magical moment again myself, I came pretty close watching 3 of my 8 grandchildren enter the world. My oldest son and his wife will never truly realize the gift they gave me and my husband when they allowed us to be part of these intimate and amazing events.

    So it is with a tiny bit of wistful envy and my deepest, most sincere well-wishes that I congratulate you and your family on the arrival of your little flower. Miss Lily will forever change the dynamics of your family in the most amazing ways possible, and as she flowers into first a child, then a teenager and young woman, she will compel you to redefine yourself as a wife, mother and woman time and time again.

    Peace & Happy Trails,
    Scherry C & AvieMare

    Congratulations on beautiful Bramble Baby #2! She is a delight already, I can tell. (I hated those blood pressure cuffs when I was in the hospital! Bet you’re glad to have that off!)

    Jamison is going to be a wonderful big brother. You’ve taught him love and kindness, and he’ll pass it on to his little sister.
