She's Here!

Lily Ann Stephenson
November 19th at 3:09pm
6 lbs. 15 oz.
We are so happy that she is here and doing just great. We chose to induce her a week early because that's what we did with Maggie and it went really well, so luckily this labor and delivery went really well again! All I can say is thank goodness for epidurals, so amazing!

We were surprised to learn right after her birth that she has one clubbed foot. With the technology and treatment available today we know she will be just fine. It was really amazing reading online about clubbed feet this morning and learning that both Kristi Yamaguchi and Mia Hamm had clubbed feet! I still remember watching Kristi's flawless Olympic performance. Her parents put her in ice skating when she was young for physical therapy. Everyone says, if you live in Idaho you have to pick up a winter sport so you have something to look forward to when winter comes. I guess we'll just start ice skating and maybe you'll see Lily in the 2026 Olympics!
Some of Lily's first visitors... Aunt Melissa and Uncle Jeff. What a blessing it is to have them so close. We sure will miss them when they both graduate in the spring.
And one more sweet picture with big brother. Big sister Maggie loved on her too, more pictures to come.
