She brings a smile to my face and warms my heart. I can't believe she is mine!

She is so funny with her hands and the faces she makes are hilarious. We are constantly laughing! Life has done a 180 over the last few weeks and I thank God for the gift He has blessed us with!

Life at Home

Here are a few more pics of little Cilla. I have been terrible at keeping up with posting, but all you ladies who have had a newborn and who have survived sleepless nights can understand.......
Here we are arriving home from the hospital.
Our first two girls (Katie and Sophie) were so glad to see us but a little unsure of the present we brought home for them!!!
Our First Family Picture
Trying to get a baby and two puppy dogs to cooperate is next to impossible!
My Girl
(not my best picture)

She loves her bouncy seat and I am hoping that love lasts. This will allow me to eat and brush my teeth!

The girls feeling sorry for themselves!

Cilla's first walk

Being a mom is much harder than I ever imagined it would be. I love my daughter more than I can put into words and can't get enough of her which helps keep me going each day. We are slowly getting to know her and what makes her happy, so each day gets a little better and a little easier! My mom has been here since she was born and I can not tell you enough about how wonderful she has been to us! I kind of feel like she is now passing the torch to me and I am not adequate enough to take it and run with it! I have some really big shoes to fill! I only hope that I can be half the mother that my mom is.

I will do better at posting, but for now I wanted to keep all of our followers happy with a few pics of our sweet little girl.

Cilla's Birthday and Hospital Stay

Cilla Grace Harris
Our Sweet Little Girl
right before going home from the hospital
Sorry for the delay. We have had little access to internet the last couple of days, not to mention the days have been crazy! We are home now and oh so happy to be! I wanted to share a few pics of our sweet little girl. I will share more details and pics later but hopefully this will give everyone a chance to see her.

My first time to hold Cilla

Right after she was born

Seriously, Flint is so taken by her! I love watching him hold her, talk to her, and love on her! It melts my heart!

Right before leaving the hospital.
Thanks for all the sweet comments and for all the love you have shown to us over the last few days. We feel so blessed to have such wonderful family, friends, and bloggy friends!!! There will more to come soon. But for now, I have to go feed my baby!

I haven't forgotten you

Hi... It's Kelly again. :)

As you see I have yet to post a picture. And I'm sorry.
Rebekah has informed me that the hospital does not have internet access and she is unable to
send a picture at this time. I know there is a lot of you out there that can't wait to see this beauty but we are going to have to be patient a little longer.
Trust me I want to see her just as bad as you do.

Baby Harris has arrived

Flint and Rebekah are proud to announce the arrival of their new baby GIRL!!
Cilla Grace Harris
born at 8:30 pm
weighing 9 lbs 15 oz
20 3/4 inches

Rebekah and baby Cilla are both healthy and happy.

I want to leave all the wonderful details for Rebekah to share so I will keep this post short and sweet. Hopefully pictures will follow soon and I will share as soon as I have them.

Thanks for keeping Flint, Rebekah and baby Cilla in your prayers...


We have an update

I just heard from Rebekah. She reported that she is now preparing for a c-section.
She is fine and the baby is fine but they are just not seeing the progress that they would like.

They are preparing for the c-section within the next hour so we should hear something real soon. Stay tuned and I will post the second I hear something.

And if all goes well we will get a picture of that adorable little baby just as quickly. :)


Moving right along

I just heard from Rebekah. She is now dialated to a 3.
She has received an epidural at this point and seems to be feeling JUST FINE :)

She says "I'm sitting pretty" so I'm guessing all it well at this point.

Really no other news to report.. but will keep you updated when I know something.


The BIG Day!!!

Good Morning..

This is Rebekah's friend Kelly and I have the honor of keeping everyone in the know of Rebekah's progress today. We will be communicating via text and phone since I'm in Fayetteville and she is in Waco so I will do my best to keep you up to date with her progress.

The Doctor broke her water at 9:00 am this morning and started her on Pitocen. And she quotes "everything is pretty good now". I asked her if she had any pain and she said very little.

More updates as soon as I get them.

I have watched this video about ten times and it makes me laugh hysterically every time! I have needed some good laughs this week! Enjoy!
**Let me preface this video by stating that all of you who know me know that I love dogs and I would never do anything to bring harm to any animal. I am confident that NO harm was brought to this puppy dog...besides maybe some hurt pride!!!

D Day

Monday will be the day. I am scheduled to go in to be induced
Monday, March 9th
at 8 am!
Whoa! I feel like I lose my stomach every time I think about it!
I covet any prayers! There are so many emotions that run through my veins as I think about Monday! It will be the happiest day of my life. There are so many fears as well- the labor and delivery, the baby's health, the changes and transitions ahead for our little family, our puppy dogs, oh so many things. We will go from being a happy little couple to being a family of three and being a mommy and a daddy (not just the parents of two sweetie pie puppy girls). What a difference a day can make! I go from overflowing with excitement one minute to being scared out of my mind the next! But I know the Lord will be in that room with us and I have complete confidence in our amazing doctor...seriously, I think he is the BEST! So, Monday is the BIG day. Oh my goodness...I better get going. I have SO much I still need to do...............

One Week and Counting

You heard me right! I had my weekly appointment this afternoon and the doc said if we had not had the Little One by this time next week, he will induce! I guess he is feeling sorry for this big mama and thinks I am about to pop!!! Who cares that is music to my ears!! Hooray!!! I have had a good nine (almost ten) months, but man I sure am ready to be delivered from being preggers and ready to hold our sweet little baby in my arms! I will keep you posted!
