the babysitters...

My Mom with all the granddaughters (including our female dog JoJo in the background)

Eden will be four weeks old tomorrow. Hard to believe.

Eden has two old farmer grandpas that like to let her nap on their chest.

My parents came up today. I think they were getting the shakes. It's been a while since they had seen the girls.

3 weeks and a few days....

I was told I had to put this picture in there since we have one almost exactly like it of Kealee in those same socks.
Kealee tries to be gentle but sometimes...

Kealee wearing a pair of my socks.

One week later Eden is really filling out. I think she weighed 9 lbs 4 oz this week!

Our normal routine is for Shana and Kealee to go to bed about 8:30 and then I give Eden her last bottle about 8 or 9 and sometimes another one about 10 or 11 and then put her in bed. Some nights Shana gets up with her a couple of times and I see them half-asleep in the recliner at 6 a.m...other times Shana seems more refreshed and says, "she did really good - I gave her a bottle at 3 or 4 and she slept on until now!"

Kealee threw the tennis ball for JoJo to fetch and it bonked Eden on the head. She flinched and then went right back to sleep. She seems to be fine (or as good as she could be with our genes) so maybe we should say she has a hard head.

new pics...

The tired Mom.
I believe I am half-asleep here, too...

Grandma and Grandpa Hammond came to visit (I don't know what Kealee is wearing)
Here's her colorful Spring outfit from John and Kim
