    Oh, I am so jealous! Our little man was due to come into the world the same day you had Lola, but the doctor said I needed to wait 6 more days. I am getting induced Monday Nov 29, and with our first one weighing 9pounds 5 ounces, I think this one is also going to be big. Congratulations, and have a comfortable recovery!

    I wish you all the best and a warm Hello to Lola Marie from Germany!
    She is such a cutie!
    Take care!

  66. Rhadonda

    Why did you have to go and make me cry with the video? ( : Absolutely beautiful. Her eyes opening, sweet face. Congratulations. Babies truly are a gift from God that we turn right back around and give back to Him though he allows us with His help to train them in the way they should go. Enjoy life because those sleepless nights and noisy days will someday be too quiet as they go off to college. But it is all good!

  67. Amos

    Congratulations!!! She is Beautiful!!! What a precious video by Collin. Tears slowly drifting down my face while watching. whew.

    Congratulations! Can you believe you had nine and a half pounds of baby inside you? You looked so tiny, too! And the tribute & video from Collin is beyond amazing. Thanks for sharing so much with us.

  70. Tabitha

    Congrats on your newest angel! She's lovely. And Collin's post was great. It is exactly the reason I am a surrogate mother-to help other wonderful people experience exactly that. Thank you for putting it into better words than I ever could.

    Congratulations! Lola looks adorable, so cute. I will always remember her birthdate, my youngest son was born on the same date 7 years ago!

  72. kaly

    Congratulations! I have not been able to visit your blog for just over a month, so I am a bit late with that.

    Your video and pictures brought tears to my eyes. Mostly due to the fact that I had my son on my lap and he was beaming as he was viewing the images. I asked him if he could say 'baby' and he just got this huge smile and tried to make out the word. He will just be turning two when our second one comes along, and I've been wondering and worrying about how he'll take it and if he will understand, but the way his face looked, perhaps he knows that this baby was fresh from Heaven and so very special.

    Thank you. And enjoy these new moments with Lola.

  73. MonaLisa


    She is 2 years younger than my son, born 23 rd november 2008 πŸ™‚

    keep warm !!!
