Little Lily is almost 6 months old and she is doing great!!! She's healthy and happy and such a sweet baby. Jason blessed her on July 1st. This is her blessing dress. She looked so cute in it!! We are so grateful for her and we are enjoying her soooo much!!! Em is such an awesome, patient, loving big sister and she always talks and sings to "Lil" as she calls her!! I'm so grateful for my family!

 We has our annual family Easter picnic today. It was so good to see everyone and catch up. This was Lily's first time meeting most of the extended family and she got held the whole time! Our family is very happy when there is a baby around!! And Lily is the first baby in a year and a half!

-Middle=7 out of 15 of us cousins, from left to right= Chandie, Celeste, Emma, Molly, Buck, Christy, and Becky

My grandpa is 89 and it's so sweet of him to always help with the family meal. He loves seeing all the little kids and giving them all a dollar! I love how our family always has our set parties every year. We might not see each other that often but we are a close family and we are always there for each other!

 Em had her 6th birthday! We celebrated by having a little party with her friends. We had a pinata, pizza, and games. She had a great time and I can't believe she's already 6!!! She's such a sweet girl! She's so animated, fun, smart, an awesome big sister and a little spitfire all in one cute little package!!

Emily and Lily!!! We got Em a dress that came with a matching doll dress and Lily fit in it. It was a little short but it fit!! Me and Em set up a little photo shoot in the living room and had fun collecting all the stuffed bunnies we could find around the house. It really makes Lily look small when she's next to Em. Em isn't exactly big for her age!!! It's so fun to see how much Em loves her little sister and I love watching her interact with Lily!

Welcome home baby Lily!!!

Lily has been doing so well! She was able to get off the oxygen and she had her feeding tube removed not too long ago. Her doctor told me today when I went to visit her that she really didn't see any reason to keep her any longer. She is over 5 lbs now and she has been staying warm and working really hard to have every meal with a bottle. She passed her car seat test and we were able to bring her home today! We survived 5 weeks and 4 days in the NICU!!!! It's been a long and tiring road but she has recieved good care and we are grateful for it. Em is soooo excited to have her sister home and finally be able to hold her and see her without glass separating them! We are so excited to finally be together as a family! We are so grateful for all the thoughts and prayers that have been sent our way. Everyone has been so kind and reached out to us. We are very grateful for all the answered prayers we have had in the last couple months!!

Em is holding her sister's hand. It gives you some perspective of how small she is when her hand is this small next to a 5 year olds!!

We got a big snow storm and Jas and Em went and made a big snowman. Em was so excited to have some snow to play in!! We had fun playing in the snow and having a snowball fight too!! I love how excited kids get for the snow!!
