Christmas Time

 Wow, Christmas really snuck up on me this year! I guess I have been to busy enjoying our 2 little blessings I have not even done any Christmas baking! ( but we can still enjoy a lot of it, we just need to visit either of our families ) :)
Not having snow doesn't help at all, and neither does not playing hockey. Josh and Dad have been working really hard to get the ice ready for Christmas eve, now we just need to pray for cold weather, not often that we do that around here!
Because all the days around Christmas are filled with family get togethers we had our own little Christmas yesterday, not much of anything, just enough to make some memories.

My sweet family.

Andrew trying to remember how it's done.

Makayla really didn't care in the least. :)

Daddy could you please help me?

It's a new dress!!!

Now back to sleep.

We wish you and your family a very blessed Christmas season!

1 Month Old!!

It's hard to believe that our little baby is one month old already! She is such a blessing to our family and we love her so much! We got her weighed yesterday and she weighs 9 pounds and 1 ounce, which is an answer to prayer. She is starting to get used to her schedule which is very nice for both her and me.
As soon as I can I want to get Megan to take her 1 month pictures, but until then I thought I would post a picture of her and of myself to see if you think that we look alike.

Have a good weekend!

The Past 3 Weeks

It is hard to believe how much time has gone by since we were blessed with our baby girl! I can't imagine life without her, what would I do all day?! :)

Makayla is a very good baby but so far I have not been working on putting her on a schedule because we want her to gain weight. Last week she was 8 pounds 5 ounces and this week she needs to be around 8 pounds 14 ounces, so we will see how heavy she is and if the midwife is happy with her weight gain then I want start getting on a schedule just because it is so much nicer for me and the baby, I know when she is hungry and when she is tired so I'm not always trying to figure it out.

Our nights are good, she will sleep 2 to 3 hours in between eating and she goes right to sleep after eating so I'm happy with that, she is still a little baby after all.

I am very thankful that so far I have had enough milk for her, and I pray that continues. I am also very thankful for Josh, he is a wonderful Daddy and I can always count on him holding Makayla when he can so that I can get some work done or take a nap. And I'm thankful for Andrew and Makayla, two wonderful blessings from God!
