A Baby's Blessing


This is about as good as it got with our 45 second window--- trying to synchronize happy kids, a bright sun, and tame winds is harder than you'd think.

Dad and Marybeth

Mila and Papa Kirk Teresita and her sweet Cannon... soon to be a big brother!

Three months and five days old. And our little Mila Grace was finally blessed in church today. She looked so chubby and wide-eyed up there compared to the usual newborn baby in white. She was happy, rosy cheeked, and SO sweet--- she really is a dream. Did I mention she's been sleeping from like 7:30-6:30 these days? She's snuggly and smiley and SO chunky and I love her to pieces.

Ross' parents, my parents, my dad and Mary Beth, my brother Ryon and his family, my sis-in-law, Teresita and Cannon, and Lizzie and Shad and their kids came over for my mom's BEST lasagna ever after the blessing... it was crazy and loud and wonderful. A special day.

Oh and one more thing... it is indeed official! We are the owners of the home on lot 264... and I still can't sleep. It's like every time my mind is finally clear... I remember my new Master Bath and it's like CHRISTMAS!!!! I can't wait to take pictures. It might be my favorite part of the house. AHHH! Closes March 25, it's going to be a crazy four weeks.

Such beautiful pics, even with wind and such. we managed NOT to get a family pic on annie's day, so just know that these will be cherished...

looks like you had a special day with lots of special people. the best kind to blog about. hooray. and seriously 11 hours? NO FAIR LILLIE! Mine was up at 10, then 3, then 5, then 6:30, then....sigh. I am not good at sleeping babies. still happy for you though.

and I can't wait for house pictures. I'm sure the rest of your fan club agrees. :)

brandon's home, phew. his flight was delayed, so he missed a connection, and ended up being 24+ hours late coming home. not so good. I think I'll bail to my parents' when he heads to purdue this weekend. thanks for caring! love you!

She is beautiful! I love the chubby cheeks.

I am with Michelle...are you KIDDING me that she sleeps 11 hours?!?! Nate STILL doesn't do that! We've managed to make it to 9which is a miracle in itself. Very jealous...but glad at least one of us gets sleep!

Congrats on the new baby and congrats on the new house! Isn't it crazy having to all this "grown up" stuff? I think I found your blog off a way old comment you left on Jon's blog. Anyway, now you can see us in all our 4 kiddos in 5 years craziness. Super cute fam Lillie!

Congrats on the new house! Can't wait for pictures. Stop looking so cute, seriously.. I am worried about looking normal again after number three... very worried. But you really do look great.

Rebecca said...

A beautiful blessing, a sleepy baby, your earrings, outfit, and hangy hair. A great family and a new home. Lillie--the jealousy(happy for you jealousy)continues. I love watching your life.

Missy said...

I want your earrings. They're so pretty.

And Mila is adorable. I seriously cannot wait to hold her little, chubby, three month old body.

Ross did a beautiful job. It was fun seeing everyone live and in person when I had only seen them in the blog post pictures.
