Catelyn is absolutely taken with her little brother and it is so cute!!! He can make her smile faster than anything else. The other day, she was in the midst of pitching a crying fit over something and then she heard the baby on the video monitor. She ran over to it, turned on the picture and broke into a huge smile and said "aw...he's so cute!" I couldn't help but laugh. I am so thankful she has adjusted so well. Such an answered prayer!!

Yesterday my sweet little girl turned 3 years old. I can't believe that much time has already gone by. She was so excited about her birthday this year. That's all she's talked about for the past month. In a few weeks we're having her a Mickey Mouse birthday party with the family and I don't know is she could possibly be more excited. I'll be sure to post pictures after her party. Happy Birthday Catelyn- We love you!!!

William Philip Lawler, III "Tripp" was born Monday May 10th at 2:20 in the afternoon, weighing in at a whopping 8 pounds 11 ounces, and is 21 inches long. The delivery went very smooth and quick, but unfortunately since he came out with only a few pushes, it didn't squeeze the mucus out of his lungs and has caused some respiratory problems. They ended up having to admit him to the NICU and he's been hanging out there since. He is steadily improving and we continue to get good reports, so hopefully he'll be able to come home tomorrow. Will and I were discharged today, and there were quite a few tears on the drive home. I never expected to leave the hospital without my little guy, but I know he's in good hands. We'll still get to go visit him during visitor hours, but I'm most definitely looking forward to him being given a clean bill of health so we can have him home permanently. I wanted to thank everyone for their sweet words of encouragement through texts, phone calls, visits etc... I am blessed to have such sweet friends and family!

Went to the doctor today and had an ultrasound that measured Tripp to be approximately 8 lbs 2 oz. So...we scheduled an induction for Monday morning at 5 am (whew that's early!). I'm super excited that he's almost here, and I'm really looking forward to a sweet last weekend of being a family of three. I'm not going to lie...I'm a little nervous to how Catelyn is going to handle having a baby brother around. I'm hoping Saturday Will and I will get to spend some special time loving on her. I'm also excited because we are going to go ahead and send Catelyn to my in-laws Sunday night, which means Will and I will be able to spend some time together just he and I. Maybe we can go on a date- I just love date nights with my man! So as of Monday, we should officially be a family of four and I am SOOO excited!
