  2. Congratulations Libby, Justin and Ava on the birth of beautiful Lyla Teddy.
    As a longtime readerI am so happy for you all as you rejoice in your gorgeous little girl's arrival and welcome her into your family
    Lyla Teddy's name is absolutely so gorgeous and special. Her middle name is such a lovely tribute to your dear Ted. I was so incredibly sorry to hear of the sad news of his passing. Thinking of you all and so thrilled about the blessing of Lyla Teddy's birth, so amazing after all you went through with your illness Libby. Big Congratulations to Big Sister Ava!

  4. Congrats! I will be honest in saying I was beginning to worry about you. I hadn't seen an update in a while and was concerned. I prayed things were okay and that the main delay was from the arrival of Lyla. I cannot imagine the world wind of the last three weeks but you are being prayed over. I look forward to hearing details and your heart. For now, enjoy your new family.

  17. Congratulations to you and your family! She is beautiful. My son was born the day after we buried my beloved grandmother. I know your family is going through a grieving period but God works in funny ways by bringing new life in the darkness.

  20. Libby, Justin and Ava, congratulations on your beautiful baby girl. I love her name and oh how special she will always feel to have her Granddaddy’s name as a part of her. I can’t wait to hear more and look forward to all the future blogs especially with Ava and Lyla’s growing relationship. What a joy, what a blessing….she doesn’t even look like a newborn in that last picture…simply beautiful(just like you Libby!) You all have been on my mind and in my prayers! While I know you have been going through a lot lately, I was hoping that this new bundle of joy had a little something to do with your blog silence. Ava looks so proud! :) Blessings…..donna cason
