Welcome to the world, Lily Elaine Crowder!

We are so happy to welcome our newest family member into the world- just in time for her first Christmas! Congratulations to my sister, Katie, and her husband, Steve, on the birth of their little girl, Lily Elaine Crowder! Lily came into the world via c-section at 2:20 pm on Sunday, December 20. She is 8lbs 13 oz and 21 inches long. She is a big, beautiful, healthy girl!

She is already like her mom- she didn't want to come out in the cold and snow when she was perfectly warm and happy where she was sleeping. But at 41 1/2 weeks, it was time to get out! Mom and baby are doing great and we are all so excited for them.

Thanks to all of you who sent positive thoughts and prayers for this little girl and her parents. We are so happy she is here- and I am so happy to be an aunt for the first time!

A Grampy for the fourth time!

She is super cute and very alert- she had her eyes open a lot and was just taking everything in.

Mom and baby. Katie looks fabulous- seriously- I am so jealous!

A proud Nana

Welcome, Lily! We have waited for you for so long, and you are worth it!
