Visitors, Halloween, and update

This little lady came to visit us last week...we were so thrilled to meet her. She is a beautiful, sweet, miracle baby and we feel so blessed to know her. Can't wait to see you again (and your mommy too)!
Doesn't Lily look good holding a baby!?!




We also had another very special visitor! Gee-Gee came to town for a week and we enjoyed every moment. She lights up our life so much when she is here, and we miss her like crazy when she leaves.


Halloween was good this year. Lily was a princess, ballerina fairy. A very hodge podge costume, but it cost less than 10 dollars, so I was all for it. (plus, she thought she was pretty fabulous in it.) She decided she didn't want to go trick-or-treating, so we passed out candy instead and had a blast.



She was the leader in her school parade. Strutted her little self around in her cool shades.







Lily's preschool class. They are all adorable and wonderful. She has made some amazing friends this year! (Oh, and she is learning A LOT too.)
She loves school more than I can express. She is a happy girl, most days. She's amazing.



Baby update: projected due date is Jan 12. I am planning on driving there (out of state) with my parents and Lily to be present for the birth. We have chosen our name(s) - we won't know the sex of the child until he/she makes an appearance! Other than that, we are just quickly trying to get our family and home ready for an infant.
Thank you, everyone, for your words of support and congratulations. It means sooo much to me!
I will, eventually, share the whole story with you - and someday I'll visit all my favorite blogs again! But, for now, I'm gettin' ready for a baby! WOO HOO!

It's just soooo exciting!! I can't imagine preparing for a child in such a short amount of time...but even 9 months would be a short amount of time for me. I am so happy for you guys and can't wait to hear more.

Pixel Fairy Princess said...

Okay - She just rocks! She is not only one little angel - who is going to be the best big sissy ever - but she does it with such style! I cannot get over the image of her with the tutu, fairy wings, and shades! OMG- we have got to figure out a way to get these two together when I am up there over the holidays!
