Happy 1st Birthday Lily!

Today our little girl is 1 year old. I'm sure Robert would agree with me that the last 5 weeks we've had her have been the happiest of our lives. Who knew that such a little person could have such a big impact not only on our lives, but on our marriage as well. She has truly made us want to be not only better Christians and better parents for her, but also a better spouse to each other. Parenting is not easy and I think we both are trying to help the other as much as we can. I truly appreciate the phrase I heard so often before...parenting is the toughest job you'll ever love. I wouldn't trade one minute of it for anything.

Monday afternoon we went to have family pictures taken by our friend Phil. They came out beautifully, this one being one of my favorites. I hope to have family portraits taken August of every year to celebrate Lily's birthday. You can view the other pictures at his website by clicking on the "Phil Crosby Photography" link in the right column.

Robert had to go back to work on Tuesday. I don't know if it was harder for him or for me! We miss you daddy!
