She's Here!!!

Our newest baby girl, Lily Joy Searles arrived Monday night at 8:14pm. She weighs 7 lbs 4 oz and measures 20 inches long. Mom is doing great and glad it is over. To say that there is "Joy" in there Searles' house now has even more meaning. The kids are happy to finally see their baby sister. Ezekiel says "She's Cute" and I happen to agree. I will post some more photos after she has her first bath, so stay tuned.

How wonderful!!! Katie and I both love the name Lily and when I was pregnant with Logan I had Joy as the middle name but didn't get to use it, so Lily Joy has the most perfect name. What a blessing. We're still checking and praying for Luke and everyone. Have a glorious Christmas. Love, Tami

Lily looks beautiful! When was that first bath? I've been staying tuned all day. I know you have a lot of other things, just teasing a little.

Love you all give hugs and kiss to all and can't wait to see you all soon, weather permitting.
