I am so grateful to Josh for learning how to become the ultimate blogger! He has posted everything since Lilly embraced us with her presence. I guess I am finally feeling up to the whole blogging thing, only wishing I was less emotional than I was a week ago, but alas, I'm not. I haven't even started writing yet and am bawling like a baby. We have the prettiest roses in our yard, so we decided at the beginning of one of our walks to take pictures of this little girl next to the prettiest thing we could see, and of course, they just don't look quite as beautiful next to this little girl. I'm afraid this post could be rather long, which as you know, I don't really write much. I wish I could express in words what has happened to me since she came, any one of you who has had a baby knows exactly what I am talking about, and for all of you dear sweet ones in my life who haven't yet, just know that the time will come when the Lord will bless your life with something that is most precious to Him. It's hard for me to describe in words the feelings that come to me as I realize that she came straight from Him. In no other way could something like this be created by any other power. It is a testimony to me that He indeed lives and loves His children. I never realized I could love someone so much. Its such a different love than the love you feel for your spouse, which are both so wonderful. I am so grateful that she is healthy and strong. I feel so blessed to have her be in our family and feel so inadequate as I think about how I am going to raise her. I'm just not good enough!!!! I'm sitting here looking at her right now sleeping away in the "pillow throne" Daddy made for her and truly understand that my Lilly is more beautiful than any rose. I'm so glad she is mine and that I get to keep her forever come what may! I just want to thank everyone who has posted comments about her and us, and for those who tried but couldn't :). Josh pulls up the blog and reads them to me daily and as he is reading them just crys and I cry with him. We have so many wonderful friends and family who care so much and it is times like these where we realize how much we are loved. The sweet emotion (or hormones) that comes at these sensitive hours humbles me with gratitude and appreciation. We love you all and thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
