17 Days Old...
Ok. Seriously, These last two weeks have FLOWN by! I can NOT believe Katelyn is over two weeks old!! Her two week appointment went great... She weighed 7lbs 5 ounces! (she already gained a pound!)~ still falling in the 10th percentile. She smiles ALL the time in her sleep, and once in awhile if we are lucky we hear her giggle! She really is such a good baby. She constantly gets SMOTHERED in kisses from all of us! She is still getting the hang of her nights and days, but it will come soon enough.
Samuel and Serenity LOVE her. Samuel says, "I will love her forever." and Serenity says all the time "Katelyn is pretty mamma, I love Katelyn"...
Samuel~ has been SO into hockey lately! He and Jordan play every night... They use chairs as their "nets" and each have their own hockey team name! It is adorable.
Serenity~ EVERYTHING is princesses and pink. As tough as she is, and as much as she can keep up with her big brother, she is definitely a girly girl too!
I don't know about anyone else... but I'm getting pretty excited for Christmas this year! There is something about holding a newborn baby and thinking about Jesus coming to earth as a tiny infant... I guess it makes it even more real and even more special to me... I know this Christmas will be one to remember. It will be fun to have 5 stockings hanging by the fireplace! I probably will be getting out the Christmas boxes in the next few weeks, starting to look through and get out all the fun decorations. The kids even got their own little trees with their own decorations from Grandma! Speaking of Grandma...Jordan's mom was able to be with us for 10 days and Jordan's dad flew in to spend two days with us all... They left on Saturday morning, so it is officially real life with 3 kids at the Smith household!
Thank you again SO MUCH for coming and staying with us!, we LOVED it and the kids miss you so much already!!
Well, as Thanksgiving approaches I just want to say how THANKFUL I am for all my blessings. For a house to live in, food on our table, the freedom to worship God, and most of all my wonderful family... Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!
