Zach the Tank

Zach is 2 months old today. We just got home from his immunizations, and man is he a big boy! 13 lbs 10 oz and 24" long. He cried a lot after the needles, poor guy. I felt so bad!

We had a great Christmas and enjoyed spending time with family & friends, and we are looking forward to a few more days of it. We were all spoiled this year...I'm still not sure where I am going to put all of the kids stuff!

Here are some pics from the last week

Zach wanted to try on Abby's new Hannah Montana headband

This is a new outfit she got for Christmas, she wanted to have a PhotoShoot before church (yes, she wore this to church!)

Special Weekend

We've had a great weekend... Mum and Dad have arrived for Christmas, We celebrated Great Grandma Grace's 80th Birthday, and this morning was Zach's Dedication. As with Abby's dedication, all 4 grandparents participated... Thank You guys!!!

Here are some pics...

It's OK that she is a flames fan, 'cause soon he'll be bigger than her and he can beat her up :)

6 Weeks & a Visit with Santa

Zach turned 6 weeks old on Thursday. We went to the Dr. last week and he is doing well (other than the nasty cold that he has got) He is a tank, 12lbs 6oz and 24.5".

We took the kids to see Santa on Saturday. Abby wasn't to keen on going to see him, unless Mommy went too. So this years Santa picture has me in it, but at least she didn't cry.

Abby the Helper

We have quickly come to realize that the thing that makes Abby most happy is helping. Abby LOVES to help with baby Zach and she loves to help Chrissy and I with whatever we're doing. Whether it be cleaning or cooking or dealing with Zach, she wants to help. It's awesome. She has become an awesome Big Sister and she has helped us a lot, even if it's just making her brother smile! Here are some pictures of Abby the helper...

Abby hanging out with Zach

We got a night out this weekend and went over to Keith and Bethany's to make gingerbread houses. I think the one Abby and I made is the best but Chrissy's was pretty sweet. It was a fun night out where we got to spend time with a bunch of people we don't normally get a chance to. Here's a picture of me posing with Megs with Abby and my house and Chrissy's sweet house...





Here are some random pictures from the last few weeks:

Update

Just a quick update while the kiddos are sleeping and to give me a break from cleaning :)

I weighed the little man yesterday, 10lbs 9.5oz and he is 22". I can't believe how fast he is growing! He has already outgrown a few sleepers and diaper shirts, and today he is in a 3-6 month shirt and it isn't that big on him! I can't believe it!
Things are going well, still trying to get the hang of things. I am missing my full nights sleep, but I know it will happen again eventually :)

And of course, here are some pics...

Christmas in Gallitown


The house is now all decorated. Yay! I Love Christmas!

Sorry there haven't been many posts... 2 kids is keeping us busy!

We are all doing well. I weighed the kids on Thursday and Zach was 9lbs 3oz, so back above birth weight which is good. Abby was 27lbs 7oz. Zach is a good baby, eats-sleeps-poops, occasionally he shows us his eyes, and they are beautiful! And he has the most adorable smile. I know it is probably just gas, but he does smile at me sometimes when I am talking to him.

Gotta run... here are some pics

One Week

Zach turned 1 week old yesterday. Such a big boy already, he is growing up to fast!
We went to the Dr. for his 1 week check today, and he is doing great. He is down 2oz from his birth weight, but I'm sure he'll be packing on the pounds soon. He is eating well and sleeping well, and opens his eyes occasionally.
Here are some pics from the last few days:





All ready for the cold
