December has been a busy, but fun month.  We had our first family pictures as a family of four.  Here are a few...

Laila turned one month old on the 17th and has now outgrown all of her newborn sized clothes.  :(

Jacoby loves holding his baby sister.

Then, of course, it was Christmas!  Adam had to work, but he was able to stop in and open presents with us.  Here we all are on Christmas morning.

Then we went over to my parents' house to celebrate with them.  Matt, Victoria, and Elaina were there, too.  Jacoby loved playing with his cousin, Elaina.  They were so cute running around together.

Laila is here!

Laila Grace Silva arrived on November 17, 2010 at 10:49 a.m.  She weighed 9 lbs. 8 oz. and was 19.5 inches long.  We were so ready for this day to come!  We fell immediately in love of course- so did Jacoby.  This picture of her looks VERY similar to the picture we took of Jacoby in the operating room just minutes after his birth. 

Here are the proud parents.  Adam looks a little tired, lol! 

My parents were there and Adam's parents were able to travel out here for Miss Laila's birth!  It was so great to have both sets of grandparents here for her arrival- and to keep Jacoby entertained.

Jacoby was absolutely adorable with her.  He stayed very still while she was in his lap.  He gives her kisses all the time and always makes sure to share his toys with her especially if she's crying. 

I already know that we're going to have our hands full, but it is totally worth it!
