Update with Ayla and Ashlyn!

Ashlyn has been a real blessing to our family! We are all so happy to have her!

I took her to her 2 week wellness checkup last Tuesday. She was only 11 days old. I took her early because her doctor was going out of town. It went really well, she is healthy and she had already past her birth weight! She weighed 7.6 at birth and at 11 days old she weighed 8.1! Can you believe it?! I am very happy about that! She was still 21 inches long. Since then, I can tell she has grown. I just switched her diapers, last night from size newborn to size one. :( Very quickly my newborn is disappearing.

She is 2 weeks old in this picture!
This Friday she will be 3 weeks already!

Here is a picture of my daddy, holding her for his first time!
I know this picture is one in the hospital but I wanted to still put this on my blog!

My friend, Melissa holding her for the first time!
This one too was taken while in the hospital!

Her first bath at home!

I had my sister do it the first couple times!
I did this with Ayla too. I just don't trust myself until I watch them be bathed a couple of times!

My first time bathing her!

It was not bad at all!
I don't know why this makes me nerves. I guess, I am just afraid I am going to drop them or get their cord wet.

Now onto a few cute things Ayla has been doing!

First, she set up a picnic for her and my sister, Marion!

This is a train she drew! I love the tracks!

I love this monster she drew for her aunt, Marion!

And this is a princess she drew! I love the grown!

Now for some sweet pictures!

Ashlyn holding onto me as she sleeps!

Both of my girls fell asleep on me!
Ayla is still so in love with her sister! She tries to help me with her any chance she gets. Funny thing is, the other day, Kurt was holding Ashlyn and she was crying.
Ayla told her dad, "I think she needs to be burped, daddy." Sure enough that was what was wrong.
Kurt then said,"Wow, my kid knows what my baby needs more than I do!"

This was Lane's first time holding her!
I love Ayla in this picture!

Always kissing her!

The pictures below were taken today!

Ayla always needs to be toughing her!

Then Ayla got silly! LOL!

We all love Ashlyn so much!
