"You have nothing in this world more precious than your children. When you grow old, when your hair turns white and your body grows weary, when you are prone to sit in a rocker and meditate on the things of your life, nothing will be so important as the question of how your children have turned out. It will not be the money you have made. It will not be the cars you have owned. It will not be the large house in which you live. The searing question that will cross your mind again and again will be, How well have my children done?"

She's Heeeeeere!!

What better way to start a blog than with the fantastic news of our newest little bundle of joy!

LILEE RENEE BECKER was born on September 27th at 1:33 am. She is long and lanky at 6lb. 12oz. and 20 in. long. (She actually measured 21 1/4in. at her 1st dr. appt. on Monday).
She definately came into the world on her own terms. My water was broken at 9ish on Wednesday night and, start to finish, we had her within about 4 hours. I didn't even need to push. Unfortunately at the appropriate "pushing" time, I got sick (think puking). Apparently, the force from vomiting pushed her out on her own, and after a routine check, we found that Miss Lilee had arrived...and was waiting in the bed under the covers!!

She has been pretty much a dream since!! Keaton is "adjusting" well. We are having some issues, but hope that with time things settle back in again for him. When he's interested, he loved to give her kisses on her head and see if he can PULL her umbilical cord off. FUN FUN!! :)

We are all easing into life with two kiddos. Seth went back to work on Tuesday and I managed to SURVIVE the day with both of them. I'm hoping things continue to go so well!! Thanks for all your prayers and well wishes on our behalf. We feel so blessed to have such a beautiful healthy baby girl to add to our growing family!!

Congrats! I always got (puking) sick during deliveries but that never helped mine come out. Amazing! I'm glad you started a blog. Now I can keep up on all your happenings from here in Washington.
