Ashley, Ella, Finn, Micah, and Carrie came out for a quick weekend to see the new baby, and to Cheer up Thatch and Kyn.  It's hard to move away from everything familiar.....and every one familiar! Then add a new job, a new baby, and a grandma that is too sick to come see her new grand-baby..... sometimes we just need some familiar faces!  So thanks guys for making the effort!  We love you.

From youngest...Dawsyn 1-1/2 weeks, Finn.....4 mo.s.......Brentley 19 mo.s

 Brent man was a little hard to get to lay still!

 ......and then there were 2........

 I'm back.........

 Kisses all around......whether you want them or not.

 Our boys are such good daddy's :)  They had a good example :)

 ......and this is my opinion of too many pictures :)

 Dawsyn and her Daddy.  He calls her Sister Bella.

 This pretty much sums up this little chap.....wide awake smiling and raring to go!  He's grown so much in a month!  SO fun to see him and love on him again!

Endangered Species

Or so you'd think.......slightly camera shy, and prone to weird faced reactions to the camera make for a rare appearance here.  Love these two so much!  They are such GOOD kids.  Easy going, and a joy to have around........most of the time;)......although they do have traits that resemble those of the poor mouse who doesn't seem to be able to take a step without leaving a trail of droppings....socks.....socks.....more the couch cushions, under the chairs, one stray hanging out in the middle of the floor with no the bed sheets, under the many socks do two people wear???.....bookbags, shoes, hats, sunglasses, papers, wrappers, plates, cups........I clean off the table and counter......turn around and some kind of evil genie has been here....more stuff!  Love em anyway :)

 Iley had a "cowboy" day at school for spirit week....their school mascot is the cowboys.  This is how she did her spelling words......she actually got them all right the first time, so maybe the blood to her head helped!

This sweet baby gets cuter and cuter every day!  She went to the doctor for her 1 week check up and weighed in at 6 lbs 7 oz.  Yay!  She's growing and gaining.

Welcome Dawsyn Marie

Introducing Dawsyn Marie
Born September 25 at 9:49 AM
6 pounds 4 ounces
19 inches long

We brought big brother Brentley to see his little sister.........He wasn't too sure about the whole thing.  Why was Mamma in bed? And who or what is she holding?

How do I get out of here?

You want a bite of my cracker Mom? 

Mommy and her babies :)  LOVE this one.  She's a great little mamma too! 

Brentley is such a Daddy's boy though!  He was fine with everyone holding sis....except for Daddy!  When we tried to put her on Daddy's lap with him, he howled! 

Just a few hours old, and oh so loved!

She is very bright eyed and alert. 

This baby cracks me up the way he sleeps!  He was all smashed up against the edge, down in the crack with his legs and arms crossed.  

I woke him up taking his picture.......oops.....but he needed to get up anyway.  As soon as he wakes up, he stands up and hands over his pacifier or as he calls it, his "night night"

Except Nanna isn't as hard core as Mom and Dad.......cause she knows if he keeps his "night night"......he likes to sit and snuggle for a few minutes before getting down to play :) I mean, who wouldn't want to snuggle all that sweet squeezy cuteness?? 

So fun to watch her Uncles love on her.  They are so fascinated by how tiny she is.  She is pretty amazing!  and CUTE!

Aunt Iley couldn't wait to get there and hold her!  She was a little offended she couldn't go with us the first night!  She was so funny when I told her that Kyndahl had her baby.  I told her the name, and she said "Awww, that's a super cute name"  then she wondered if the doctor cut Kyndahl open.......umm...nooooo.........and I explained how babies get here......she was HORRIFIED!  "Does it hurt?" she asked........well I couldn't lie....  She informed me she was NEVER, NEVER, EVER, having a baby.......NEVER mom. 

But she sure does like to hold other people's babies :) LOL 

She was also worried that her feet needed lotion.  They are long and thin with long toes, just like Kyndahls. 

Aunt Wren did a dutiful hold.......short and not too cozy.  She did like to pet her hair and feel her soft skin.......but then she was done.  She likes the idea of a baby, but she thinks they're kind of boring. 

Starting to be done......the grip is loosening........ 

Ok, I'm bored and done now. 

Uncle Sherm was like "Whoa....she's the same size as a football! You could just tuck her and run."

We all had to check out her tiny fingers and toes, she's so girly compared to Brentley and Finn!  Much daintier.  They had big chunky boy hands. 

A tiny piece of perfection, straight from heaven!
