One Week In

Liam is one week old today, and I couldn't have asked for a better week (except for the weather).

Mollie is thrilled with her new baby brother! She sits quietly and cuddles him every afternoon. And she's been very helpful, not only with the baby, but with keeping Lucy occupied. Thankfully, she has been very healthy all week. Her new favorite food is salad and her appetite has been great! She attended school every day and even sold a few boxes of Girl Scout cookies. An aside, if you would like to purchase some Girl Scout cookies, let me know! Leave a comment or send an e mail. We have to turn in the order form by Monday. They are $3.50 per box and the money is due when the cookies arrive (mid-late February). You can even donate your boxes to a local charity or to deployed US military through the cookies from home program.

Lucy has been doing great with Liam, too. She still doesn't understand that she has to be gentle (not her strong suit), but she loves to kiss him and talk to him. Both girls thrive on routine, so the challenge for us will be to stick to the routine. I'm thinking of making a new daily routine chart to remind all of us what needs to be done.

More photos coming soon!


Welcome Liam Charles!

Mollie and Lucy now have a baby brother, Liam Charles. He was born Jan. 9 at 3:27 and weighed a whopping 9 lbs 8 oz! Getting here was a wild ride, but we all made it through and can't wait to be home together as a family of 5!
