Guardian Angel...

Guardian Angel pure and bright
guard me while I sleep tonight.

Little Miss Mackenzie, your room is just precious. I started to say as precious as you, but have decided there is nothing that precious.

Mommy and Daddy have done such a good job at creating a beautiful, sweet reflection of the peaceful world they intend to provide for you.

There were many "big" jobs before you arrived, like LOTS of painting, putting up beadboard and trim and hours of dreaming of how to make it perfect for you.

Mommy and Daddy finished your nursery just before you were born...and here are just a few of the details...

cozy, comfy, beautiful changing station (great lamp, Endie!)...

lots of friends always waiting...

a sweet, musical mobile...hearts (of course!)

and "i" want to thank Mommy and Daddy for letting Lolli add a little something to your room...

love to think that God's word is always near...

Maybe someday Lolli will post something that is not so mushy...(maybe not)!

You have changed our world, our family and taught us so much about love in just the few weeks you have been here.

We love you...and pray for you daily little love. I can't wait to hold you again (soon)...

Lucky Charm

-old Irish lyric-

Lucky for us...

Lucky for you...

Happy first St. Patrick's Day, Miss Mackenzie.

You are definitely like warm sunshine on our faces.

Love and prayers...Lolli

(PS...Pops got to hold you today...lucky Pops!)

You are one week old!

When I say it like that, it "sounds" so short. But when Lolli and Pops haven't seen you for a whole "sounds" like a looonnnggg time.

There are so many people that love you and praying for you. We are blessed to have friends that remember to go to God in praise, not just in the difficult times of life. So, when God hears your name each day, he then hears thank you.

Mommy and Daddy are just so good with you. Their confidence astounds me, and it is a powerful, comforting sight to see them working as a "team" to care for your every need. You are blessed that God has loaned you to such a good Mommy and Daddy.

You're getting extra feedings right now, you are so sweet to watch. Within just a few minutes your eyes begin to'll pop them open to try to stay awake...but then you just drift back off.

(by the way, you are yawning crying allowed when Lolli and Pops are in the house) ;p

Your eyes are captivating, so big, so beautiful...

I know you must be tired of hearing the camera must feel like a movie star! In the reality of our world, you are much more important than any movie star! And Pops would add more beautiful, too.

Lolli and Pops both said as we walked out of your pretty little house, "it's so much harder to leave now." And it is.

You change so much from week to week. You continue to be a little miracle for this family. It's true, the angels danced the day you were born.

Lolli and Pops can't wait to see you in a few more days. Keep growin' little one.

The Minute

He said, "I didn't think I would get teary eyed."

"But the minute I held her I did."

Day two he said, "I got teary eyed again. Every time I hold her, I tear up."

As we closed our eyes tonight, Lolli prayed and gave thanks.

And Pops said (he said), "Life is changed forever."
