6 Weeks!

We have officially survived 6 weeks with a newborn and a toddler! :)
Miss Ansley is doing good. I guess since my last post I had an epiphany-Ansley is a crier! The doctor basically diagnosed her with colic. Colic is supposed to peek at 6 weeks, so hopefully things will get better. She still sleeps pretty good at night, now waking up twice to eat (since the day I posted she only wakes up once she started waking twice, go figure). :) So, my thoughts are, we can't have it all. I will take crying during the day for good sleep at night. I am loving every minute of nursing her. Just the other day, we have come to realize that she has a sensitivity to pineapple (maybe all citrus not sure). She was having a really bad night a few nights ago (lots of crying, gas and pains) and that was the only thing that I had that was different. I read that is a fairly common sensitivity.
She is starting to coo and give us little flashes of smiles (maybe just gas at this point).

We love having both of these beautiful children in our lives! We are so blessed!!

Playdate Fun

I had everyone over today for a little play date today. A couple of the girls hadn't met Ansley yet, so it was sort of a welcome to the world day too! I only got a couple of pictures because we were having such a good time I forgot to snap some shots.

The awesome cake Lydia made!

Paw Paw's Visit

Paw Paw (my dad) came to visit us this past week. We had fun. We put him to work again. I feel so bad for my dad, whenever he comes to visit he works more than he relaxes. We appreciate it SO much Dad. The landscapers finished our backyard (the finished product pictures to follow), so Ryan and Paw Paw put together the swing set! It was a job, but they did it and enjoyed doing it together.

Paw Paw was so excited to meet his first granddaughter (aka little burrito in this picture)!

Cruising in Ansley's swing (his will be here in a few days)

Loving Life!

Can I take your order?

Enjoying a cold beer after a hard days work!

He brought Griffin some cool cars undies. No potty training yet, but we thought we would try them on! His puffy butt is because he has a diaper on under them! I have no excuse for the chunky thighs though! :) Don't you just love them!

Thanks so much for a fun visit Dad! Maybe next time you come you can relax! We love you and miss you already.

One Month Old!!

Our baby girl is 1 month old today! Time has seriously flown by. Even though she has only been with us a short time, it is hard to remember life with out her. Ansley is a great baby. She sleeps awesome at night, usually only waking once to eat (of course the last two nights have been twice). She is a gassy baby. The poor girl has a hard time passing gas. Any tips would be appreciated!! She still nurses great and loves to be held. Griffin LOVES her. She is the first thing he asks for in the morning and wants to give her kisses all day!

Pretty girl on her way to her first night out. Jill and Bill had us over for dinner. she had fun watching the big kids play! :)

We go for her 1 month check on Wednesday. I will post her stats then.

Grandma Nyna's Visit

Grandma Nyna cam to visit this week and we had so much fun, especially Griffin. They put tons of miles on his blue car and made a lot of friends at the park. They also ventured to Little Gym, the mall and Costco.

Our Attempt at a Family Photo

I realized that we did not have a picture of the four of us, so I asked Nyna if she would be so kind as to try to take one of us. Well, here is what we got! Guess we need to keep trying, maybe one day! :)
