She is finally here!!! Sorry it took so long to post these. She was born May 26, 2009 at 12:50pm 6 lbs. 6 oz. and 19 inches long. She has her daddy's scowl, and hates to yawn and hick-up. I spend most of the day staring at her. Scott said this is our last baby. I not on board with that one!!! She is such a good baby and cute, I can help but want more!! The girls have been loving her too. Every time the baby cries Sami comes running, "Baby Ok, Baby Ok", I say "Yes Sami baby is ok, just changing her bum." Mercedes has had some trouble with her though. She told me, "That now we have a baby, she has to do more work around the house, and it's not fair." I said, "That's part of being a family we have to help one another when things change." Not sure how she took that, I didn't get a response. McKenna & Mercedes just want to hold her all day, and change her bum. Which is great!! Scott well he is afraid he will break her, because she is so small.
All and all I think everyone is adjusting well to the new baby. Hope all of you are doing well, and we miss you!! I will post more pics later!!
Sorry it has been awhile sense we blogged. My computer has died three times in three months.
We have been very busy with school and homework. Mercedes has already decided that teachers give her homework to take away her fun. (Oh My!) McKenna loves school and wishes she could go all day. Sam Sam has decided that everyone in the family needs there butt squeezed to check if it is eew wee. (The diaper squeeze has come back to haunt me!)
All and all things are going good. Thank goodness for Scott's side jobs. They have been a blessing.
Oh one other note: Mercedes baptism is set for March 28Th!! She is so excited and loves having the missionaries over every Wednesday. They think she should be teaching the lessons now. I love watching and seeing how much she has learned in such a short time.
McKenna lost her first tooth!!! She was so brave. It had been bothering her for a few days. Scott had been working on it for a while with floss. That was not working so he got a pair of small pliers. She didnt even flinch. So BRAVE!!!!
Sense we are on the topic of McKenna. Here is a great story. Her teacher told me this yesterday while I was working in the class. Last week McKenna beat up a boy on the bus. She scratched his face and gave him a fat split lip. Her teacher asked her, "McKenna did you do this to AJ?" McKenna said, "If I tell you will I get in trouble?" It took everything the teacher had not to laugh. Her teacher said "Well you might because we don't hit. Its not nice. Why did you hit AJ?" McKenna "He was hitting me and he wouldn't stop when I asked him to so I punched him." Her teacher told her not to hit again and next time tell the bus driver and move away from him. McKenna said ok and went on her way. Mrs. Burk told me that even though she is not allowed to say to the children "what comes around goes around." That fit this situation perfectly. McKenna was not reprimanded for her behavior, and I have not received a call from the principle. "what comes around goes around." had a silent victory. So there bullies!! I haven't told her this, but part of me is proud of her, for standing up for herself. Miss you all we will see you all soon.
