Sisterly LOVE

We are ALL finally settling in as a family of 4! Karly ADORES her new baby sister...I just have to be very careful about watching her with Kynly. When Kynly cries, Karly comes running; when Kynly is in her bouncer, Karly is always right there to talk to her. These are her new favorite sayings, "Hi Sissy!", "Hi Hunny!", "No fussin". It's too cute! I love to see the sisterly bond that they already have! We are complete with our "salt-n-pepper" girls as my doctor would refer to them!

Miss Kynly Lynn

Proud Daddy of 2 BEAUTIFUL girls!

Big sister Karly w/ new baby sister Kynly

Our family of 3 turned into a family of 4 on Thursday, September 16th at approximately 8:19 am. Stephen, Karly and I welcomed Kynly Lynn into the world and she is the sweetest baby ever! She weighed 8lbs. 15oz. and was 20.5 inches long. She now holds the weight record for the grandbabies as well as the hair record. She has the thickest, darkest hair that is so beautiful!Kynly and I are doing WONDERFUL! What a blessing she has been to our lives already. Big sister Karly is taking her time adjusting to the "new life" and giving us quite the run for our money at times. She absolutely ADORES her new little sister, but thinks she must test the boundaries to find out what is really going on. Thank goodness my Mom is here staying the week with us to help keep her busy. So far, Kynly is nursing awesome, sleeping great, and has had a wonderful check-ups at the doctors. They said that they usually want to see newborns back in 2 weeks, but because she is doing and looks so well, they don't need to see her until her 2 month wellness visit!! God is Great and we are loving our healthy babies!! More pictures to come...I will do my best to stay on top of things. No promises though, being a Mommy of 2 is sure to keep me busy!!
Much Love! XOXO

48 hours

This is how I hope Karly feels when she meets her little sister!!
Who would have thought that in less than 48 hours, our family of 3 would be turning into a family of 4! I can't believe how fast this pregnancy has gone far as being physically prepared, I think we are! As far as being mentally prepared, that's what I continue to struggle with. Don't get me wrong, I am SUPER excited, but it's hard to imagine loving another child as much as we do Karly!! All of you Mother's of 2 or more probably remember feeling the same way and I keep reminding myself that it all works out. Our bags are packed and tonight will be the last night that our family of 3 sleeps together in our house. Karly is going to stay with my mom on Wednesday night so we don't have to get her up at 4:30am, drop her off at my mom's, and then head to the hospital by 6am. This way she can get a full nights sleep and be at the hospital in good spirits to meet her new baby sister Thursday morning!!
Wish us luck as we start our new adventure! : )
