Happy New Year!

Can it be almost 1/2 way through January already? Wow, the new year certainly is flying by quickly. Life has been busily getting back to normal... back to school... back to work... back home... back to life.

Lilee has had an appointment with her cardiologist for a follow up check up. All seems to be going very well with her recovery. We're supposed to see him again at the end of this month and if things are still looking as they should it may be 6 more months for her next appointment.

She's slowly catching up with her weight gain although she's still pretty tiny for an almost 3 month old. I don't mind, as long as she's healthy then I think her small is cute! :o) Erin is enjoying and adapting to her new life of being an at home mom. She does such a good job with the bean, it's fun to watch them together!

Lilee smiles up a storm and we got her first laugh out of her last Saturday. Although that was the only time so far we've heard her laugh, we've got the video camera poised and ready to catch her next one! :o)

Over the past month, since we've been back from the hospital, it's been amazing to talk with dozens of people who have been impacted by the blog and Lilee's story. She truly is a tiny witness to His power and faithfulness. She's practically famous at church and so many of my students at school ask about her all the time... her own little fan club. She can't help it, she's just so cute!

We hope and pray that your 2008 has been happy and healthy so far. Looking forward to catching up with all of you in the near future. If you've got a chance, drop Erin a line, she'd love the "e-company" while she's at home with the baby! Lots of love,
Chris, Erin & Lilee Bean! :o)

Wonderful news to hear. We know our God is faithful. It has been awesome to see your faith proclaimed to the world via the www. You may never know how many lives have been impacted by this trial. I believe God has prepared Lilee Jane "for such a time as this".
Love you guys!
