Happy Valentine's Day!

I realize I haven't updated you on the status of my family. On 9 January, we welcomed our new little girl into the world! Meet Lily Noelle.

This is our little Valentine picture for you!

She is now a month old and I can't believe how fast the time has gone!

My labor and delivery was horrendous. I won't get into too many details, but for my safety (and the baby's) we won't be having any more children, making Lily even more special to us (as if she wasn't already the most precious gift ever imagined!)

There is a lot of good news though. I have a healthy little lady. I healed very quickly. SHE SLEEPS 6-8 HOURS EVERY NIGHT!!!

Yes. You read that correctly. We use a method called Baby Wise and it is phenomenal. I highly recommend everyone who will be having a child to look up the book and read it.

For now, we are just making it through our days. Learning how to live with each other. We are finding a schedule that works for us all, which is so helpful, especially when there is another little child in the mix.

Maze has been amazing during our transition time. She loves Lily tremendously and I couldn't be happier! She gives her kisses and "soft hugs" and likes to rub her head. We have to watch Maze because she doesn't quite know her own strength, but thankfully all her feelings toward HER Lily have been affectionate.

So, I'll still be around. I'll still be sewing and doing fun things with my kiddos, and I'll still be sharing with you all here.

Thank you all for your well wishes and positive thoughts. I appreciate you all more than you know!



  1. Glad you are doing so well xx
    Not going to ask what the heck that IronMan mouthpiece is!!!!

  2. She's beautiful Danny! I hadn't heard about the difficult delivery. So glad you and the baby are both OK. You are a wonderful mother!

  3. Congratulations!!! She is beautiful! Glad everything turned out well and everyone is okay!! Enjoy! These are precious days! They will be grown up young ladies before you know it.

    Have a super great sewing, stitching, and family day!

  4. Congratulations, that's wonderful!

  5. Oh wow, the photos are so beautiful. So glad all is okay for both you and Lily - huge congratulations!!

  6. I wish that book was around when I was having my boys. I think I would have been a better mom with more sleep at night. Congrats on your beautiful girl.


Comments make my day! Seriously. I love them.
