We Tried.

It was hot.
The kids weren't in the mood.
Mama was (and still is!) running on little sleep.
At least we tried.

This little charm sums up our everyday life.
Ainsley doing what she wants, instead of what I ask.
Isaac has better things to be doing than hold the baby.
Gwen's look of "what did I get myself into".
Fun times.




Man, I love this girl, but in just 3 1/2 weeks she has taken me on quite the emotional roller coaster ride.

You know the birth story. I was just told that any other pregnancies I have could now be very high risk. Obviously the key word being *could*. . . but still something to think about.

I found out yesterday that Gwen didn't pass her hearing test. We get to do a more sensitive hearing test in dallas, when I set up the appt. Not something I was excited to hear.

If you look closely at the pictures you can see a red mark on her forehead. That is one of two spots on her face that I have to go see a pediatric dermatologist about. They are looking like the starts of strawberry hemangiomas. She has one more that is not on her face. Currently they are still flat (we just will watch and see how they grow, but they have been growing very fast), just not something that a parent likes seeing on their baby girl's face.

The first two weeks of life, I think I heard her cry a handful of times. She was so quiet. She has changed her tune this week though and has decided if I am not holding her, she is mad. Not that I mind so much. I love snuggling with her, I am just not sure how much longer my back can hold out carrying the chunker around!

But like I said earlier, Man oh Man, I sure love this girl!! Look at the faces she pulls. At least through all of the stress, she already knows how to make me smile!
