Early in the morning on this day nine years ago, we got one of the biggest surprises of our life (right up there with finding out we were having twins a day and a half before they were born) when they said.. "It's a GIRL!"
(We hadn't wanted to know, but Mitch & I were certain we were expecting our 4th boy at that time.)
Beautiful Lilly was born, and an amazing girl she is.
She came into the world quickly after waiting 9 days past her due date.
Her nine years have been full of beauty & adventure.
So much I'd like to share about all of the above.
First, though - on our way out the door. Mason & Eric won their playoff game Saturday & play again today.
She has always fit in and shared her life so graciously with four brothers.
I'm not personally a big fan of modern country music, but there's this song that plays in my head often when I think of Lilly: "I think about you, eight years old. Big blue eyes and a heart of gold. When I look at this world, I think about you."
