It sounds like you have a good plan already, and I'm sure Lily will be just fine.
My older daughter woke up just a few minutes before Amelia was born - she barely made it downstairs and to the side of the tub in time. I was facing her on my hands and knees so she didn't really see much, except for Amelia floating up in the water. She heard me yelling, of course, but accepted my explanation of "having a baby hurts mommies sometimes, but I'm just fine." She's nearly four, but handled it all very well...and thinks it's very cool that her sister was born in a pool in our living room.
Looking forward to hearing all about your birth experience with #2!
