Playing Around

Here are a couple of videos I took with my camera last night. Just playing around with our "swaddle monkey" which is Lennon's pet name for her. She is really smiling a lot although these don't really capture that so I will have to work on a video with smiles. Also there are a few new photos for Nawna.

For those of you who haven't seen yet. Here are a few pics of the nursery. I have yet to put up her darling little chandelier from "land of nod". I also need to get some more for the walls (maybe paint polka dots) and an "e" to go at the end of her name since we are spelling it addie. So I will post updates when we get some more done. Happy looking...

New Corner

We have turned a new corner in our lives as a family. Addielyn Faith Noland was born on June 4th, 2008 at 6:50pm. She was a whopping 8lbs 1oz. and 20 inches long. It sure felt like it too. Yes I did have "the drugs" but the pushing felt like it would never end. But our baby came into this world perfectly healthy and beautiful. The first thing I noticed about her was her long arms flinging about and as soon as I took her into my arms for the first time she just starred up at me so peacefully. I could not believe that in just a matter of hours what we had waited for for 9 months was here. I find it hard to fathom that you would not believe in a wonderful, loving God after experiencing the birth of a child. During the first few weeks, fear set in of something bad happening to her. I could not imagine her ever being hurt. But then the Lord was showing me a new place of trust in Him. So I placed her in His hands and am trusting Him to leading us on how to raise this beautiful creature of His. I cannot wait to journey on the road ahead after a family of 2 became 3. Here are a few pics of her when we first took her home. I will be updating soon with new ones because she is now a little smiley faced girl.
