Getting Bigger

Miss Kendyl is 5 weeks old tomorrow.  She is so much fun.  Smiley as can be!  She's filling out and is starting to feel a little less fragile.  I held off on the one month photos to spare you of her florescent purple lips.  We are fighting a bad case of thrush and our medication stains everything!  Unfortunately her lips were purple too -- til today!  So here's a picture of our normal faced baby.  Enjoy!  

Look at that head control!

3 Weeks New!

More pictures?  Of course!   I want to capture it all -- every stage, every expression, every pose you can imagine.  After all, she is our last baby and I just can't get enough of her.  Pretty soon she'll be at the next stage -- less moldable and less sleepy and her photos will be full of smiles.  So for now I want to capture the innocence of her while sleeping.  Like I said in the previous post, this girl likes her sleep.  So far the task has been a piece of cake!

Sleepy Girl

Kendyl has been such a good baby.  She definitely loves her sleep!  Mostly she likes to be held or worn in the baby sling as she sleeps.  But occasionally you will find her dreaming here, in her little buzzy seat.  

I wish I was getting this much sleep.

Our Four Babies

Here are our four babies!  Things are going pretty smoothly with our new addition. I can't believe Kendyl is 2 weeks old already!  It was a sad send-off today when Gramma Dee left.  No more sleeping in for mommy, unlimited access to the pantry for the big kids or hourly arts and crafts for Haidyn.  It was such a blessing to have her here.  We miss you already!  Thank you for a wonderful week!

4th of July - 2009

What a great day we had!  Tammi, Sean and Co. came out for the weekend.  It was nice to have all the grandkids together for a holiday again -- Grandma and Papa were thrilled!  The kids were so anxious for fireworks and talked about them non-stop.  Then, the time had finally come!  All were ready, except Haidyn and Kaihla.  Kaihla eventually warmed up to the sights but Haidyn was having NO part in the fun.  She hid under a blanket all evening until eventually she fell asleep in Grandma's arms.  Miss Kendyl hung out inside where it was a bit quieter. Everyone had a super fun day!

A little sand to help kill some time -- what they really want are fireworks!!!
Still waiting....a little game of Memory may distract them.

Whoo Hoo!!!!  It's time!!!

And Ashlee too!
Oh yeah, and TODAY was Kendyl's due date!  She was officially due on the 4th of July.  But we welcomed her 8 days early.

Happy 4th everyone!  Hope your day was as great as ours!!!

Miss Dimples...

I forgot to mention... Kendyl has TWO of the most adorable dimples!  They bring tears to my eyes when she flashes them in her sleep.  Must be some sweet dreams.

Kendyl - One Week Old

I can't believe it's been a week already.  She has fit so nicely into our family - almost like someone just slipped her there while we weren't looking.   She makes the cutest faces and the messiest of diapers.  She is just heavenly!  Happy one week birthday Kendyl Rose.  
We love you! XOXO
