Lilly Christine...

July 27, 2010 @ 3:35 pm
7 lbs. 14 oz.
19.5 inches

Because I know you're all wondering how we came up with the name...
which took us until discharge to agree on...

Lilly (after my twin sister Elizabeth or lillybeth)
Christine (my own middle name)

First family photo
a LOT more to come,
too tired to write!
busy nursing,
chasing after two others...
but so happy and blessed!

Porter enjoyed this last week of tennis lessons!
I almost cried the first time I picked him up and was watching him,
such a big boy, made me proud!

When I picked him up he said
"Mom, Dad was eight when he started tennis lessons,
and I'm only five!"
(meaning "I'm going to be so much better!")

The Serve

I love the tongue sticking out in this picture!
Such concentration...
Hopefully this will be our ticket to Wimbledon some time in the future!!!

Claire is THREE

Claire's birthday is July 2nd, but we celebrated on July 3rd. So to not confuse her, we just didn't say anything on the 2nd, and held off until the third when she thought she really turned "free!" (that's how Claire says three)

We love this little girl so much. She brings much happiness and joy in our home...along with the drama! But we'll take it. We wouldn't have it any other way!

P.S. after you click play, click the screen again to see it in full screen...not sure why it only plays half of the video??
