Lyla's First Day Home!!

Wanna see pictures of Lyla's first day HOME!?!? Since we got to the airport last night I took 250 pictures. No joke. So I tried to weed through them and choose only my favorites, but I still ended up with a TON!!! 

Summer also blogged about today and their trip home (which got a little scary and involved oxygen - we weren't sure if they were going to make it home or go straight the the hospital!). Please go read that as well!

Sara and her new baby sister

Ms. Belle, the crazy hair woman.

Who is this??

Ready to go to her doc appt!!

Peek-a-boo!! Belle loved Lyla from the start and they got along really well - as good a strong willed Spitz's girls can!!! ;)

Gavin likes her too!

Bellie wrestling Sara (Bellie is the one on top) - boy that girl is STRONG for how little she is!!

"Mom, I really don't remember you mentioning before we left that I had to share you with 4 other crazy kids!"

Gavin was soo nice to Lyla and has been giving her back her bottle all day!!

Isabellie LOVES her sister!!! She wanted to snuggle right up to her!

Tasting her/kisses

Kisses from Sara!!

First picture of Beautiful and I. Please excuse the headboard behind my head my horn, and focus on the baby! ;)

Seriously?!? Crazy what you can do with low muscle tone!!
LOVE this girl!!!!!!!!! I absolutely ADORE her!!!
Like my shirt?? :)

Lunch time!! Waiting for their food!

Goldfish for Belle!

"Hey! I want some too!"

"Uhh Mom?? This isn't fair! I'm the princess here!"


All better with her passy while she waits for her lunch!

Chillin' on the couch!

Look at her stand!! She could barely hold her head up by herself when Dave and Summer met her a few weeks ago!! That's what LOVE can do!!

She loves her daddy!! And can you see her sandal gap??? I'll try and get a better picture of it later, but it's the most ADORABLE sandal gap I have ever seen!!!
Why do kids with Down Syndrome LOVE the vacuum soo much??

Lyla liked it too!

Can she get ANY MORE BEAUTIFUL!?!?!?!?

Oh, I soo wish this picture was in focus!!

While Mama napped, Daddy and I took the 3 'krainians shopping.

Sweet Bellie is such a GOOD big sister!! She was rubbing Gavin's back! :)


  1. Love the pictures!!! She certainly is beautiful! Love that one of you both smiling in the mirror too. Hey, I just realized I looked at all of them w/o crying. Yay for me. LOL

  2. These are wonderful photos for Lyla's scrapbook to look back on; the first days at home. She doesn't look like she's having any trouble adjusting. Happy for you that you're able to spend time with her.
