You're probably wondering how to pronounce her name.  It's easy.  Take the name Elijah.  Take off the get IJAH.  That's exactly how you say it, then add LYN.  IJAH-LYN.  We just added the A because we liked the look of it.  Chad learned the name on his mission to Argentina...where he met a 3-year-old named Aijiahlyn, and he's loved that little girl and the name ever since.  We looked for other names to be sure, but none of them felt right.

So, these photos aren't the greatest but they're better than nothing right now.  She's an absolute angel.  I admit, I was planning for a feisty one, but so far, she's an easy-goin' gal.  Hurrah!  Things are so much easier this time that I know what I'm  Chad got a week off work and it was heaven.  It has been such a wonderful time soaking in all her loveliness and staring at her half the day.  Jet is doing great and so are the doggies.  We feel so blessed.

She's already been on her first adventure, with many more to come.
