Brothers and Sister

My kiddos are loving having a baby brother around. I may have said that already but I have some pictures of them giving McKay some loves.

Benson holding McKay. He will sit and hold McKay for about 45 minutes at a time.

Kimber was cute holding him. She was rocking back and forth humming. Now she demands her McKay time. She is quite the little mommy bringing McKay his soother all the time, his hats, burp cloths, blankets and my nursing cover.

We tried to recreate a photo shoot that was done in the hospital. They are amazing pictures but a little out of our reach right now to buy so here is some of our attempts at getting those pictures!

So these pictures don't quite measure up to the ones from the hospital but he is out cute little man!

I just had to add this one. He looks so funny!

More lovin's from brother and sister!

My first child to take to a soother! It is sanity! I have to say though that this type of soother kinda creeps me out but it keeps him happy!

His little feet. Well little compared to the Benson and Kimber's bun feet. McKay's toes are so long... his pinky toes is almost as long as his other toes.

So long for now. Hope you enjoyed the pictures and have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Mr McKay

Here are (finally) more pictures of our little McKay. We are so happy to have him in our family. He really is the perfect little addition. Brother and Sister just adore him and try to love him so much... almost too much!

Here is Daniel, the proud Daddy. We thought it would be a neat birthday gift if they shared a birthday but didn't think it would really happen. Well Happy Birthday Daniel!

My first time holding McKay. Right after he was born they put him on my tummy but that really grosses me out so I asked them to clean him up before bringing him back.

Our little guy snuggling at 1 day old.

McKay all ready to come home. When I saw this onesie I couldn't resist getting it for him to come home in! (it says New in Town)

McKay and I chillin' while waiting to go down to the car to come home.

McKay is a great baby. He is really content and hardly cries. We have been wondering when he is going to get fussy but he hasn't.

I will blog the delivery story another night. Until then just know that it wasn't what I expected and was the longest one yet for me!

We are loving being home and a big thank-you to all the help and well wishes we have been given!

3 Musketeers

Thanks to Lisa I have a picture of the 3 Musketeers at our Trunk-or-Treat. They were so cute!

Short update on life here. Saturday was my birthday and my body decided it would be a good day to start false labor. Yay! Please note the sarcasm in that! The plan is that I am going to be induced on Monday. My parents will be coming down on the weekend and we will celebrate Daniel's birthday with them then go and have the baby shortly there after. It is great to have an end date in mind. My sanity is worth asking being induced 3 days early!

Until then I have to clean the house... it needs it! Get some extra things sold from around the house that we haven't used since moving here, go to an Ice Cream baby celebration... not a shower just an excuse for us girls to get together! That about sums it up.

Oh, have I mentioned I have been reading the Hunger Games books? Daniel gave me the second two for my birthday. I finished the last one last night. Now I can concentrate on other things other then the drama that is Katniss Everdeen's life!
