Just a quick picture of our cute little Lucas, that doesn't seem so little anymore. I would post more pictures, but Betsy is the picture taker and I am the blogger, and I am unsure as how to convert her RAW to small enough .jpeg to post on the web. I will get to the bottom of this however.

Here are a few more pictures of our little Lily. In a couple of these pictures are Betsys mom, Joyce. She came up from Salt Lake and has been so much help. Betsy and Lily are doing great. The other day I had Lily and Lucas on my lap and was sitting next to Betsy. My heart was so full. Children bring so much joy into our lives. We are so blessed to have each other and two healthy children.

Well I'm not to good w/ the whole blog thing, so I don't know how these will turn out once I post them. We wanted to share with all of you, our precious little miracle, Lily Elizabeth Bulkley. Election day was held on her birthday, and though some people with good intentions tried to help with the name (Obama, Democracy, Liberty, etc) we did the same as we did w/ Lucas. Betsy picked out the first name and I got most of the say on the middle name and named her after her wonderful mother (for those of you who don't know, Betsy's real name is Elizabeth. She was born at 11:08 pm and was 7 lbs 6 oz and 21 inches long. We are happy to report that Lily and Mommy are doing great. Betsy was going to try to do it w/out a epidural but when she got to 6.5 cm she didn't go much further on her own, so they broke her water and gave her some pitocin. When the contractions really started going, she decided to get an epidural, but little Lily came and Betsy felt what seemed to be the full brunt of Lilies force. She was screaming at everyone. The doctor (and Betsy) had me gown up and help w/ the delivery. She came out like a greased football, but I didn't drop her!! They are doing great!! We are so thankful to have them both healthy and happy. Lucas is a great big brother and I am sure will be so helpful!! I will try to keep up to date on the pictures.
