Let the games begin!!

I think the videos say it all, but it was certainly an exciting day in our house today. Lily has been standing up and taking a couple of steps here and there, but nothing significant until now. She is one of the flower girls in Cousin Melissa's wedding in 3 weeks and we are hoping she can walk herself down the aisle. This is going to be fun.

Sorry it's been so long, but we are HOME!

Wow, I didn't realize that it has been so long since our last post. To those that do not have access to Catherine's or my Facebook pages, I'm sorry. Anyway, we made it home last night. Flo (Catherine's Mom) stayed over to help us out. Thankfully she did. Lily cried, slept, cried, slept, etc. None of our internal clocks have adjusted, yet, but we all needed some sleep. Having Flo was a big help and then Catherine's Dad, Jack (yes, same name), came over in the morning to help, too.

Paige is already a great big sister, but Lily doesn't know her yet, so she's a little hesitant when Paige gets too close. It will all come in time, we know, but I hate to see Paige get discouraged when she's trying so hard.

Unfortunately, we don't have any pictures we can put up of the new sisters together or of the whole family (they are on Flo's old fashioned know, with FILM.) I will put them up when I get them and can scan them. I will put up a few more of Lily from the trip, though. Now that we are home, I'm sure Catherine will get back to posting more regularly. As you can imagine, it gets hard to do from another country with a new kid in a cramped hotel room.
