Christmas 2011

Wow I love Christmas with kids... It's so magical. I loved watching Austin's face light up when he saw his new toys. On Christmas eve we went to the big Kinsey party. We had dinner , watched the kid programs, played games and exchanged gifts. On Christmas morning we stayed home cooked a big breakfast and played with toys. We then went to my parents house and had lunch and exchanged gifts. We were so spoiled. We then went to Bridgers parents and had dinner and did gifts. By the end of the day we were so exhausted we were all in bed by 9. I am so grateful for all my family and friends in my life. I am so blessed to have a amazing husband and 2 beautiful, healthy children. Merry Christmas everyone!

1 month

Hi little miss... You are 6 weeks old.You are such a good baby. You now weigh 9 pounds. We took you to the doctor yesterday to follow up on your jaundice. They said you were still a little to yellow so I had to take you to the lab at the hospital to run tests. They came back and said you are doing great. You have been going to the chiropractor for your reflux and fussiness and it is working so good that we only have to go every 2 weeks now. You are starting to smile and I love it. You are such a beautiful girl. Austin can't get enough of you... I think you guys will be best friends. I love you little miss Charli.

16 months

Hey little man you are 16 months old. You seem to learn something new everyday. You are learning to count to 3, animal sounds, clean up toys, sharing your toys, and so much more. I know I say it every month but I love this stage of your life. We have so much fun playing together ... Making forts, having picnics in the living room and making dinner together. I am so lucky to spend all day with you and your sister. You still LOVE your sister. If she is crying you make sure to come and find me, or if her binky is laying by her you will just put it in her mouth. When she is swinging in the swing you think she needs to go higher and you push her until she is pretty much falling out. I'm sure she is going to be tuff... She will be your little shadow pretty soon. Thanks for being such a great big brother. We love you!!

Charli 2 week checkup

Stats : Wt. 7 lbs 6 oz. (21 %)
Ht. 20.5 in. (57%)
HC 14 in. (39%)

Charli had her 2 week check up last week. She has gained 1 pound since we left the hospital. Way to go baby girl. She still is a little jaundice so we are going to watch her for a little while and lay by the windows to catch a little sun. We have been taking her to the chiropractor Dr. dummar to help with her reflux. He has been wonderful... He holds little pressure points and does acupuncture on her. It scared me a little to think she was going to have needles put in her but she doesn't even flinch and falls into a deep sleep. I am so grateful to have options like this instead of giving her medicine. We are hoping she isn't lactose intolerant like Austin is. We are so happy that she is part of our family. Austin cannot give her enough kisses through out the day. He is such a great big brother. If her binky falls out he will run over and put it back in. Yesterday i caught him trying to feed her his cookie. He will also bring toys to her. I love my little family so much and I am so blessed.
