Here's a photo of Rick and the girls. The morning before Suzy delivered, I dropped a gift off at their house. I stooped down to give Debbie and Anna a hug, and Debbie whispered in my ear that she and Anna would like a gift too. That warmed my heart and I was so glad she had suggested that, since the idea hadn't crossed my mind. So, this is a shot of the girls opening some lip gloss and toy jewelry of their very own.
Here's a video that Tracy made for Mallory and Parker, since they are still in Nashville for a few weeks. One funny story...Tracy was talking to Parker on a cell phone, telling him that the baby's name would be Lily Beth. He seemed a little concerned and asked if they would be calling her the full name or just "Lily". Tracy went to great lengths to explain that they would call her by both names, and how people like to use two names because it sounds nice, and how it makes her name unique from all the other Lily's and so forth, and Parker finally said...."I just can't understand why they named her after a cow!" He'd been thinking they were naming her Lily BeSS! He was very pleased to learn that it was B-e-t-h instead! That just goes to show you...you can't always believe everything you hear on a cell phone!
I loved holding her sweet little hand:
