Well Keira had her first professional photo shoot today. Darla (Riveting Edge Photography) came out to the house and took all kinds of pictures of Keira and Caileigh. Caileigh did an awesome job posing for Darla and helping out with Keira! I posted a few of the early proofs she sent us and can't wait to see the rest!
Well poor Keira has to wear a harness brace for 6 weeks and then 4 more after that when she sleeps in order to fix her hip. She doesn't seem to mind much but Mommy sure does!
Caileigh is having lots of fun at preschool these days. She learned the "days of the week" song and sings it all the time. She is doing a great job helping with Keira's baths ans diaper changes. She was especially excited when she got to help Daddy give Keira a bottle the other day instead of Mommy feeding her.
Well "little Keira" is not so little anymore! At her appt today she weighed 8 lbs 4 ozs! Up from 6 lbs 8 ozs just a little over 2 weeks ago. WOW! Her hip is still out of the socket from her birth so we have to see an orthopedist and get an ultrasound. She may have to wear a brace for awhile.
Meanwhile Caileigh's ears looked fine so hopefully the fluid is gone and we'll wait to see the ENT in a few weeks. She does seem to be hearing better or maybe she's just listening to us now ;).
Busy morning for us as we went to the library for storytime for Caileigh. Then we read a few more books, colored a bit, went to lunch, the drs, post office and got the car washed! Everyone was happy to nap when we got home!!
Well today was Keira's first official outing with everyone and we went to Aunt Bridget's house for Patrick's birthday party! Just like her sister did 3 years ago when she went to Big Joe's birthday party Keira slept the entire time! Never even opened her eyes! And now she's up so its off to bed for mom!
We're back to the pediatrician's tomorrow for both girls so will update with news after their visit!
Well its been a few weeks but having a new baby around is alot of work (says Caileigh!). Keira and her big sister are both doing well. We've had lots of visitors and everyone has been so generous - we can never thank you enough! More pictures to come soon!
I'M A BIG SISTER!!
Welcome baby Keira Marie!
I am so excited! What a great day ! Baby Keira was 6 lbs and 13 ounces and 19.5 inches long. Everyone said she looks just like me! Thank you everyone for your prayers, God is certainly good to our family!
Happy New Year!! Sorry no updates in awhile, its been a whirlwind couple of weeks! Today we went sledriding with my cousins at the golf course near our house! Check out the video of my daddy going really fast down the hill! It was the best time!
