Month 2

Well we've hit the 8 week mark and everything is progressing just as is should be.
Kayla is thriving and changing everyday. We love getting her to smile and try everyday to get a laugh from her. I guess she's not quite there yet. She's hit the 12 pound mark and is really begining to know who each of us are. She loves it when the boys lay next to her and talk or make funny faces. She can stare at them for minutes on end.
We've also discovered she loves music. The other night she sang along to Stevie Wonder performing on American Idol. However, she hasn't revealed her pick for this season, she's keeping that one to herself for now.
She still has her big blue eyes as you can see in the following pictures. She also has curly hair when she gets out of the bath.

Month 1

It's hard to believe it has been a month since we brought little Kayla Jo home. The first couple of weeks were great; with help from Grandma we started out just cruisin'. Then Grandma went home and reflux set in and the next 2 weeks were pretty difficult. I hadn't experienced it with the boys and I thought she would never stop screaming. Then at her check up the doctor said a word that is now music to my ears, "ZANTAC". Thank goodness for zantanc. I can finally put her down for more than two minutes and get a few things done. We're still playing catch up this week but everyone is doing much better now that she is feeling better.
Okay here are the numbers. She has gained 2 pounds and has grown 1 inch. Her eyes are still blue and we're hoping they stay that way. She is doing well by all accounts. She even gave me her first smile and is spending a little more time awake every day. She loves watching the ceiling fans and her brothers go in circles.
Thanks to all who have listened and for all the well wishing. Here are some more pics for all to enjoy.
