Loving Lily

Today we have spent our day...Loving Lily. And I have to say, we enjoyed every second of it. We already see her learning to trust us more. She was so adorable today. We held her hands and she walks everywhere..and thinks she can let go. Ha. She still needs lots of practice, but it's so much fun to see her walking everywhere with our help. She also enjoyed playtime with Daddy on the bed. Superman and patty cake is so much fun!Daddy steals a hug!

I can do it all by myself, Daddy! :-)

I tried to upload a couple more pics, but it wasn't working, so thought I would just send the ones that did. Lily is so precious and we are just so in love with her already. We are in awe of this precious little one and still can hardly believe we have her.
Blessings,
Julie
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MORGAN! We LOVE you!!!

Julie and Doug we have been glued to your blog every day since you've been gone. We sit at home as a family and read it, stare at the pictures and LOVED the video. As you know you've got love and prayer abound from us lifting your family up to the Lord.

Precious moments! Soon you'll be home with all the gang but for now Lily gets to know her Mama and Baba only have eyes for her!!! What a sweet time! Some of my favorite memories are those first days getting to see Leah experience the love of her Daddy who promised, like Doug, to never leave or abuse her. Oh our God is so good and His plan perfect! LOVE YOU!!!

Doug and Julie,

I am overwhelmed with emotions as I see God's Love through your lives. Lily is absolutely beautiful and very blessed to have you as her parents. I know you are torn between being there and not here in KY. I am praying that the remainder of your trip is safe and you will soon be home as a complete family. We love you all very much!!
