Little update

We are starting to adjust to 5! She is wonderful. She seems to be a night owl and thinks bedtime is 11pm or midnight!! Which makes for a tired mommy, but once she's asleep, she sleeps fairly well. Also, since I'm nursing and supplementing, feedings take about an hour and that happens every 3-4 hours so I'm having to learn to plan my day differently. Today I weighed her using the super precise (hear the sarcasm) way of weighing myself holding her and then with out and subtracting the difference. And according to that she is exactly 7lbs. So even if my scale is off a couple oz it looks like she has gained weight. PTL! We have been thankful for the meals we have received from people. Being exhausted it is huge to not have to come up with a dinner. If you would like to help you can sign up HERE . We would be so appreciative, and if you live far away you don't have to miss out, you can get us a restaurant gift card through the site as well. Here are a few photos. Her first real bath! She didn't hate it, but didn't love it.

She is so strong!!

Sisters!! All the kids love her!

Also, if you would like to get us something we need for the baby, we are registered HERE

First Doctor Appt

Today Eryn-Elizabeth had her first doctor appointment. The doctor said she looks good and happy! However, she weighed 6lbs 11oz at birth and is now 6lbs 5oz. It is normal for them to loose some weight after birth, but they want them to be back at birth weight at 2 weeks old. So, please pray that she starts gaining weight. She is eating fine. Nursing and supplementing.

If you would like to continue to help us through our adoption journey you can help 2 ways.

We have a registry at Babies"R"Us - Baby Registry for baby things we still need...


You can bring us a meal or a gift card to a restaurant here: mealbaby
