Lilia Cheyenne Melelani

Lilia was born on Friday, February 27, 2009. She weighed 7 lbs. 3 oz. and was 19.5 inches long. We do have pictures of Tasha but decided not to put them here for all to see!

Here I am holding Lilia right after birth. They have cleaned her up a little. She was really clean after birth. I am so thankful that Tasha let me help with the birth. I did not do much. It was so amazing. Tasha did a great job.

Here she is in the nursery. I had a wrist band so I could go into the nursery. She is so perfect. She was very alert and had her eyes open a lot. The nurses were very good to me. They explained everything they were doing.

I am giving her a bath in the nursery. The nurse took a lot of pictures.

Daddy, got to the hospital around 7:30 pm that night. He was so excited. I had instant messaged him a picture of Lilia right after she was born. He let everyone on the airplane know what was going on and why he was flying.

Asher is standing outside the nursery and is looking in. I am saying goodbye to Lilia for the night.

This is a picture of us with Tasha at the hospital.

The nurse gave us some instructions and checked Lilia out of the hospital. Her name was Shelley. She was so excited for us. All of the staff and Dr. treated us and Tasha so well.

The hospital insisted that I be wheeled out in a wheelchair. I have been wheeled out before but not under such a happy time.

Here is a close up on her feet. You can see where they did the PKU test.

Mommy holding Lilia. She looks so beautiful in this yellow outfit. Thanks Aunt Jenelle!

We can not stop looking at her. She is so cute. She makes such interesting sounds and facial expressions.

Tasha and Lilia

Welcome home, baby Lilia! We are home! This sign was on our door. We also have a little sign in the yard. Our neighbors are so excited to have a little one in the culdesac.

Grandpa and Grandma

Little Cupcake....look at the frosting! My roommate in college gave this bow to me. I think I will be learning how to make them!

This is Grandma "Louise", who Lilia is named after.

This is my first bath at home. She was great. We did not move quick enough and the flood gates opened. I am sure we will get better.

Photo shoot while she was wide awake. She did not like the bow or hat! The Bailey's gave us this cute little spring outfit.

Daddy loves to play the piano with his little girl.

Her favorite spot and Daddy's!

Daddy took this picture and I am really asleep! She sleeps about 3 hours at a time.

Here is my church outfit. Thanks to the Mortensen's! We did take her to church on March 15th. We did not let anyone hold her or touch her. Everyone had to see her!

We are so thankful for all the prayers and work in our behalf and Tasha.

Lilia has arrived!!!!

Lilia was born on Friday, February 27, 2009. She weighed 7 lbs. and 3 oz. and was 19.5 inches long. She is so adorable. Here is Tasha and Lilia with us. Tasha is amazing and we love her so much.

Wow, I am so excited. She is so small and her hands and feet are so little and so cute. Here we are both relaxing.

Here is the excited Dad! He is so cute with her. Asher talks to her and adores her. She has dark brown hair and dark brown eyes. The nurse said she looked like Asher.

Here is Lilia in her cute little onesie. Tasha gave this to us when we first met her. We took a picture and then wrapped her up in the pink blanket. She is a wonderful baby. She is so good to us. She is eating really well and sleeps a lot. She opens her eyes and looks around a lot between 8:30 am till about 2 pm. She does sleep during this time but is alert after eating.
