Say hello to the (soon to be) newest member of our little family.
This is Lily Bean Rippke. But I think we'll mostly be calling her Bean, or Beanie. "Why Bean?" you ask. Well, apparently Bean is the name of the "tiny hero" in one of Nathan's books. He mentioned the name...I laughed at him...and then I couldn't get it out of my head. So it stuck. The Lily part is to make me feel better about the whole thing. Izzy gets a real name (Isabelle) and so should this little girl. Izzy and her will both be coming back to Iowa with us at Christmas time so get ready for some puppy kisses!
