so far so good. we were lucky enough that gram came up to help with things while we were in the hospital and was even able to stay a couple extra days. it not only helped brad and i, it was a huge help to cole. so far he's doing pretty well with her. he seems to like her. he wants to hold her and give her kisses too. he needs some work though on remembering to be gentle when playing near her. today she took a wooden truck to the head and has her first injury from her big brother. she took it like a champ though!

the good news about crappy insurance is they kick you out of the hospital 48 hour after a c-section. the bad news is you have to deal with the stairs at home and the excited little boy that just doesn't understand that jumping on mommy is a bad idea. this is little miss. olivia getting ready to leave the hospital!

family of four

today was the day we became a family of four. this pregnancy flew by and now olivia kaylee is here! the past week has done nothing but allow me to realize how truly lucky we are as a family. and now we have another sweet baby. she came out screaming and didn't stop for some time. she is going to be quite vocal compared to her brother. she loves to have her hands near her face. she immeditaly took to nursing and has been sleeping well too! she came out with HUGE cheeks but they were swollen and have since gone down. her head was lodged down in my pelvic bone, jsut like i told brad it was. she has a bruise on her head and a mark on her nose. we aren't sure yet if the mark will go away or be her birth mark. here she is....

olivia's room

time has flown by! olivia is scheduled to come on tuesday, in two days! we have been busy getting things done and caught up at home, in my business, and even on this blog. i know i have lately fallen so behind, i promise to try to do better. we spent several hours friday evening in labor and delivery. i am having frequent contractions, but none big enough to truly matter yet! the good news is it gave me some time to get things in her room 100% complete. we are all set to bring our little girl home now! cole checks her room every day sometimes multiple times to ask "where baby?". we both hope this is an easy transition for him and that he will love her tons!

architect genius

cole has been building towers for some time, however as soon as they get three levels high he can not fight the urge to knock it down! however today he was so proud of his tower he made me take a picture so he could show daddy as soon as he woke up!

tacos are a regular occurrence in our house. it's one meal cole always gobbles up. he was so proud though today because he actually ate a taco put together just like his daddys'!
