My (Formerly) Moving Tummy

I meant to post this a few weeks ago, before little Lilleigh was born. I just found it entertaining!

She's a Star!

Look at the cute bib my aunt bought Lilleigh! LOVE it!

Her Name

Our Super Bowl Baby

What's more exciting that last week's snow and ice that shut down DFW? And more exciting than the Super Bowl in Dallas? Little Lilleigh!

Birth story and story behind the name are yet to come. For now here are some pictures.

I'm feeling inspired.
