One week with Lanie.

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.


  1. <3 Sweet. I miss having a tiny newborn.

  2. Sweet and so special. What I noticed was you were already back in your pre- pregnancy jeans after only one week. Wow. Blessings

  3. Oh! Congratulations :) These are very cute pictures :)

  4. These pictures give me goosebumps. I just love Liam's expression of wonder and love toward his little sister! So sweet. And you look amazing for having a baby last week. And so, so in love with your daughter. You have a daughter! Isn't that still so amazing?
    There's something so special about having one of each. Just wonderful. I'm so happy for you!

  5. Congratulations, Lane.

    She's such a gorgeous little girl and those pictures of Liam 'holding' lil sister are beautiful.
    May God keep and protect Lanie and every member of your beautiful family.


  6. This photos are really amazing... so lovely. Congratulation!

  7. Oh...what beautiful photos - it is hard to remember babies that small! She is beautiful, and I wish you all many blessings with the sweet new member of your family. I'm excited to watch her grow (that sounded more stalker-ish than it was intended, seeing as we've never met - oh, the challenges of blogging, ha ha!) Enjoy these lovely firsts with sweet baby girl.

  8. Beautiful photos of a beautiful family! Congratulations on your new little one. :)
