Going goth

Check her out. At 2 weeks, she's already making a fashion statement. Poor thing's been going around for the last week with a purple mouth. Bob scared a few of the girls and told them we were introducing her into the world of goth. I guess I should mention the poor thing has thrush. Her medicine is what makes her lips purple, as well as anything that goes in her mouth. We've already stained a few outfits.
She's so CUTE!

Sierra's first few days at home

I decided that before Sierra got to much bigger, I had better document her royal highness. I also don't want to get to far behind. The boys LOVE her, they always fight over who gets to hold her. The other day I had Andrew hold her on the couch while I took a shower, when I get out I heard her crying so I went to check on them. Poor Andrew was also in tears. He's so sensitive and was so sad because he couldn't console her. What a great big brother. Ben LOVES to give her kisses, sometimes those kisses are licks....it's his favorite way to give kisses, so we have to watch him to make sure he gives her real kisses, NOT licks.
Patiently waiting to go home. We were lucky enough to take her home less than 24 hours after she was born. I was ready within 12. i just wanted to get home and get on with life, and I missed my boys. I figured i could recuperate at home. Lucky for us, we were home in time for dinner. Ben didn't want to stop holding her and go to bed. When he finally did head off to bed, he didn't want to go to sleep.He was worried she wouldn't be here when he woke up.

Sierra's been so good so far. She LOVES her sleep and doesn't like being messed with.She actually seems to sleep better when it's loud...good thing, she has two REALLY loud brothers. The boys just LOVE her to pieces and fight over who gets to hold her.




Fun in the back yard

See how much fun the boys are having in the new house? There are so many kids from the ward in our neighborhood that they just stop by and all play and have a BLAST! We LOVE it!

Sierra Gail was born yesterday March 1, 2010 at 8:13PM.She was 9 lbs 2 oz and was 20 inches long. Bob had left around 6:30 to help my mom get the boys in bed because although I had just gotten my epidural, I was still only dialated to a 4. I was starting to feel some pressure just before 8. Then, as soon as he walked in and started talking, she didn't want to wait anymore. It was as if she was just waiting for him to get back. SO CUTE! Ben LOVES to hold her and doesn't want to share. Andrew is excited but still a little cautious of her.
