She Is Here!

Hello again!!  Sorry I’ve been a bit MIA lately.  It’s hard to believe that I haven’t really been on here since Thanksgiving.  Between Henry’s never ending cold, three ear infections, Henry’s birthday party, Christmas, the flu, computer hard drive crash, internet issues, baby preparations, and a new addition to our family……well…..I’ve been a little busy.  So now that I just dumped 732 pictures from my cameras onto the computer it’s time to get caught up.  Lets start with some exciting news first.

Our sweet baby Lily has arrived!!!She Is Here! -

She was 6 lb 12 oz and 20.5″ long.

I am so thankful that the labor and delivery was easier this time.  It has certainly made for a quicker recovery.

She Is Here! - finddailyjoy.comSo far Lily has been the complete opposite from Henry.  She is a content and easy going baby who actually sleeps!She Is Here! -

At first Henry was curious and a little hesitant but he quickly warmed up to Lily.  He calls her “my baby”, showers her with kisses and loves to help take care of her.  It melts my heart when he is so sweet to his little sister.She Is Here! -

Welcome home little Lily.  We love you!She Is Here! -

Too Too!

Too Too! - finddailyjoy.comWhen we were at my parents house for Thanksgiving we went to the North Carolina Transportation Museum.  Right now Henry is CRAZY about cars, trucks and trains so this place was perfect for him!

Too Too! -

The museum is housed in an old steam locomotive repair shop and has many restored trains and cars to see as well as information on the old shop.Too Too! -

Henry excitedly ran around shouting “TOO TOO!!!” while pointing to each and every train.  I couldn’t help but smile as I watched the joy bubbling out of him.Too Too! -

Playing In The Leaves

Yes, I know that it is December and it seems a little odd to be talking about leaves.  But around here there are still a few leaves clinging to the trees and lots of people have piles of leaves out by the road waiting to be picked up.

Playing In The Leaves -

A few weeks ago Stephen blew our leaves into a giant pile for Henry to play in.  At first Henry wasn’t quite sure if he wanted to go in the pile.  However, it didn’t take long to be convinced that it was fun!Playing In The Leaves -

Of course sticks can be just as exciting as leaves.

Once Henry was done playing in the leaves he decided it was time to help Daddy clean up the mess.Playing In The Leaves -

He does have a cute child sized rake but he liked the challenge of trying to wield the huge rake.
