My Beautiful Lily

As a new mom, I may be a little biased - but I think this little girl is such a beauty! During our time at the hospital, Lily and I got to share some fun moments - including her first little smile.

Lots of Love

Lily had lots of visitors over the next couple of days! Thank you to all my family and friends for all their support - Lily is sure to always be surrounded by love. A special thanks to Aunt Marci, Uncle Chad, and cute cousin Aidan for all their help!

Welcome Little One!

On Thursday, September 10th, I received the best gift I have ever been given - the gift of welcoming my sweet little girl. After 16 hours of labor and some clever nurse tactics, the world stood still for a moment as a beautiful little girl was finally placed on my chest. Lily Ntjila weighed 8 pounds 7 ounces and was 20 and a half inches long. She arrived with a full head of dark curls that we all have come to love!

Mom, Dad, Grandma and Grandpa, along with Aunt Marci were all present to welcome this precious little girl.
