Bringing Adelia home, Part 2

[Missed Part 1? Click HERE.]

Okay, where were we?

Driving home.

We arrived at my mom's house and carried in the babies. The kids were exuberant about seeing their little sister for the first time.

Ella wanted to hold Addie, and she only gave her up for a few minutes to my mom, who was just as anxious to hold her.

And then we went home. There was a baby gift waiting for us on our doorstep from Auntie Shelley and family. Shortly after we arrived our friend stopped by with the bassinet for Addie to sleep in. (And a gift for her and a plate of freshly baked snickerdoodles for us.) Then Auntie Amy came over for a visit:

And then we headed off to a less-than-restful night's "sleep" with two babies. ~grin~

Here's Adelia, all tucked in for a couple of hours of sleep:

Stay tuned for Part 3.


  1. I am crying here. Stacy I am so, so thrilled for you, and even more so for Addie. How blessed that tiny babe is to be yours. Love you!!

  2. OooWeeeeeeeee! What great joy! May God be praised!

    I am so very happy for you (and so VERY jealous of your mom and Amy...holding that sweet baby!!!)!! I can not wait to hold that sweet baby in MY arms!

    We are rejoicing with you and Mark!!


  4. Oh my gosh!

    I am so excited for your family. This is wonderful news. Amy says you guys are the best love-givers she knows so Addie is a very lucky little girl. I can't wait to meet her.

  5. I want to hold her!!!!!
    She is blessed, you are blessed.
    The Lord is good.
