Just as we prayed, Lanie arrived in perfect time before Mimi (my mom) was set to arrive for the week. We've had the sweetest first week with our girl. She is the most delicious, most predictable newborn and we are smitten with her. On the first sunny day of her life, we all took showers and put on real clothes to document our family. Liam is learning to be a gentle big brother and we were shocked that he actually sat still enough to hold her for a few minutes. When he was done holding "Wanie," he just rolled her right off his lap. I think we still have a ways to go.
Thank you, Mom, for taking these for us! (And thanks even more for the hundreds of loads of laundry, the cooking, the playing dinosaurs with Liam, and the baby cuddling.) Being a family of four is pretty wonderful so far.
