Kite Flying and Baby Pictures

We have been having the most unbelievable weather, so we've been spending a good amount of time outside. Earlier this week we went to the Bug Light to fly a kite. We weren't exactly in the same league as the others with our $4.99 hardware store kite, but we didn't let it stop us. Claire loved it. Milena slept.

She sleeps a lot. But when she's awake she's pretty good natured, and she looks like this:

Or if Claire is around, she looks more like this:

Definitely some resemblances going on there.

Making Faces

I forgot how awesome some of the faces a newborn can make are.

More Pictures

We're home, and its wonderful. I enjoyed being so well taken care of at the hospital, but home is home and you can't really beat it.

Everything is still very new, and its mostly unbelievable that we have two kids. I know at some point I'll look back and not remember what it was like to only have Claire because I look back now and can hardly remember what life was like before her.

A Sister.

Introducing Milena Rose. She was born at about 3am on April 18th. She is 7 lbs 9 oz and 21 inches long. She has the same thick head of black hair that Claire was born with, though Milena's looks like it might have a little curl to it. Labor was short, and pushing was even shorter. Just like Claire, Milena was ready before anyone else in the room was.

Sisters meet for the first time.

Its been a very special day.

Mackworth Island again

We took a trip to Mackworth Island a few weeks ago, when we had a lot more time on our hands.

Full term and getting ready

This is the week I'm officially full term, and thats about it for pregnancy news. Thankfully, we have a lot of other things to keep us busy. The baby's room is finally put together with lots of nice gender-neutral green and brown. The crib has been assembled, which was much more difficult and time consuming than we expected or remembered. Little tiny onesies and blankets have been dug out of storage and washed. Diapers and wipes purchased. We're ready to go.

Coincidently, the room is also done just in time for our house to be on the market. Today is the first day its been listed. No offers yet, so here's hoping that changes.
