Jack, Meet Lillie and Elliott

Jack got to meet his brother and sister today. The NICU social worker suggested that he visit and get a chance to see Lillie and Elliott. She also suggested he draw them a picture to hang on their beds or bring a little toy to put in there with them. So Jack picked out two toys from his back pack to give to the little ones. He choose a tractor for Elliott and some old bath toy of his for Lillie, Elliott obviously got the better deal out of this one.Jack meeting Elliott
(Elliott was under the lights so he didn't get a great look)
Look closely to find the tractor
Jack meeting Lillie
Maybe you can figure out what you call the toy he picked out for her.

Freddy also got to hold Lillie for the first time today. He was preaching yesterday when I got to hold her for the first time. He's going to be crazy about her I can already tell!

And while I was holding her she grasped my pinky, I loved it!

Susan, I have prayed God would give you all the strength you need to be the great mom you are being. Never imagined you'd have to be a mom in two places literally. You may feel left out with everyone commenting on the babies but you are awesome. Freddy T. said you did a great job. I am proud to call you my sister n law and I too am praying for Lillie and Elliott. I can't wait to meet them. You know how fast I got to Louisville for Jack I wish I could get to NYC that fast too. I'm there in prayer. There hasn't gone an hour without a prayer from me for them. I know God will be your refuge in time of need. Love you bunches. Let Jack have a sucker from Aunt Di.

Fredy T. & Susan - You probably don't know me, but I'm from Clarksville & went to school with Diana. First, congratulations on your twins! They are beautiful. I'm not a crazy twin stalker, but I also had twins in June and they were both in the NICU too. It can be a scary place, but I found the Dr.'s and nurses to be so wonderful. I will keep your family in my prayers. I know you're anxious to get those sweet babies home with you.
Take care, Susan Martin Davis

That pictures of you with Lilly is so beautiful I literally cried when I saw it. Her little hand on your pinkey. . . words can't describe that. Maybe its the pregnancy hormones in me and expecting my own daughter in a month but honestly, that is an amazing picture. Your children are so lovely and thank you so much for keeping us posted on how all three are doing (and you and Freddy). Me and Jeff are so encouraged by your alls obedience and faithfulness to the Lord in all the areas of your life :) Big Hugs! Jeff and Brittney Colyer
