Lyla - Love at First Sight

There is no other way to describe the way that you feel when you have a baby other than love at first sight. Our little girl is keeping us very happy and making us appreciate all that our good fortune has given us. She is doing very well and we are learning how to read her cries and cues to be able to fill her needs.

Here is one of my favourite picture of our Lyla Grace Ann. She looks so peaceful and angelic.

Here is the proud Daddy at the hospital, getting ready for us to go home

Here is Lyla getting dressed to go home.

Here is a picture of our family with the decorations that Ryan bought before we went to the hospital. Ryan went out the day before and bought banners and signs for both boy and girl. He then got his mom to put them up before we came home. My mom and dad snuck in the bows, in the pouring rain, which are our wedding bows - such a nice touch!
Pretty in pink - finally we went out and bought some PINK clothes for Lyla. Seeing that we didn't know what the babe was going to be we have a lot of yellow and green clothes. We were excited to put her in some girl clothes.This is a photo taken in the wee hours of the night. Lyla has fallen asleep on Dad's chest and I love this photo because she has her head resting on her arm like she is waiting for someone.
Here we are - the happy family. We have had a great 11 days, and I am sad to think that my partner and my love is going back to work on Tuesday. Ryan has shown to everyone around that he is a great father. The look in his eyes when he looks at Lyla, and the sound of his voice when he talks with her, the kisses and hugs he gives her, makes me realize how lucky I am to have Ryan by my side. I couldn't do this with out him, and I wouldn't want to, we have had a lot of laughs and fun - making this the best 2 weeks of my life.

I will post more stories after Ryan has returned to work on Tuesday. I plan to fill you in on the labor of Lyla, however, I want to enjoy our family time right now. Talk to you soon....

You guys look so happy!! Lyla is beautiful. She really looks like her Daddy in that first picture.
Enjoy her. What a blessing:)
Nothing is better then motherhood. Nothing at all. :)

Enjoy every moment - time flies. It seems like just yesterday I had Isaiah, and then Braylon too, but they're already both getting so big! So glad all is going well - keep the stories coming! They'll have to suffice 'til we can hear all about it in person and meet her too!
