A Welcome Addition

Lily Birth 2

Normally I try to post on Mondays and Thursdays but this week I got to spend Thursday in the hospital welcoming our baby girl, Lily. We have 3 boys at home and decided to go for one more try at a girl.

The morning before coming into the hospital we had one last breakfast together with the boys. The conversation revolved around poop. No kidding. That is life with all boys. You try to teach them the important things in life but their ears only perk up when somebody farts. They grow out of that at some point right?Boys with Lily

Here is the picture of when they came to see the baby. I think my youngest is just realizing that he won’t be the center of attention any more!

We are extremely excited to experience a young lady in our home. It has already been a bit of a paradigm shift for me.

As I sit in the hospital, cherishing every 20 minutes of sleep I can get between crying, feeding and changing diapers, I can’t help but think about what a miracle birth and life are. I think that every parent looks at their newborn and deep down has the thought, “Okay, let’s just not screw this kid up.”

I am grateful to all of the readers of this blog for the insights and comments you have made. Successify is about 9 months old and I have learned so much from you. I know that I will be a better father to my children because of what you have taught me.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!


Lily and Dad

  4. We had 2 wonderful boys, but it wasn’t until they were 9 and 12 that my prayers for a girl were finally answered. She has been a delight for over 50 years and continues to be a blessing in our lives. I wish the same for you. Blessings.

    • One more child to carry on… Thank you, Kris, for blessing this world, again. Blessings – not that you all need any more than you’ve got – what a house-full. Whatever the un-named little angle’s name turns out to be, I’ll always think of her her as “little miss sunshine,” ’cause she and Successify came into being at pretty much the same time and they both bring so much of it into this world.


    • Congratulations! Women are so special that it is preferable that they arrive last in a familly.
      In your case the partents got 3 previous babies to master the “art of being parents” which we all know, is greatly needed when raising a baby girl… lol And then again, she will benifit of 4 bouncers for protect and this is a good thing cause she is a looker !!! I just thought that a bit of humour would be apporpriated at just about this time… Enjoy and God bless you all!
