Introducing Lila Grace

Hello. Just wanted to pop in to introduce you to my Mother’s Day gift…

Lila Grace was born on the afternoon of Mother’s Day. Baby is doing great, as is Mommy… despite Lila weighing almost 9 pounds. (Yikes!)

Not the greatest photos, but we are focusing on leaving the camera aside and just enjoying the time with her. And to say that Colin is madly in love is an understatement. I just can’t describe it…

Lila (pronounced Lie-La) is a name Ken has had his heart set on for a long time. And I have always wanted the name Grace for a middle name. I look forward to Kay and Audrey meeting her soon, and then our little family will be complete. God is so very good.

Back to crafting soon. Thanks for the prayers!

    Congrats! Our little guy is just four months old and just now 11 lbs so I feel for you! Love the fact your husband stuck with a name-the same thing happened here. My husband says our son’s name popped into his head the day after I told him we were pregnant and it just wouldn’t go away and I have to say he did well!
