Over this past weekend, I spent some time looking back at our blog, and was so happy to have all of the pictures, stories, and videos of our little Layla girl from the time she was sent to us from Heaven. The videos were my favorite, so get ready Maya, I'll be shouting, "Action!" at you quite often in the coming weeks, months, and years. I've got a good number of pictures and videos stacked up already, and I'll be adding those slowly but surely to the blog.
I thought today I'd start with pictures of you from before you even joined made your big debut... and added some of my favorites from your newborn shot. Those were taken when you were just ten days old. The day was cold and rainy, and you were not a very happy camper, since you were having some trouble making a good old fashioned poop. But eventually, you fell asleep, and you were a peach for the remainder of the shoot. I'm so happy we did this, and one of these days soon, I'll be ordering some of these wonderful photos of you to add to frames for your bedroom!!
Let's not forget to add your stats to this post either... I'm having a blast going back and comparing you to your sister. So far, your big sis seems to be the ribbon winner as far as weight goes (even though you weighed more than she did when she was born)!
