Ben took the girls and Lana for a drive up by mt. ranier. They took their kites, and played in the lake. It really was good for them to get out of the house for a while.

Kara is still wanting to hold Evie 3 or 4 times a day.
Ben makes her seem so tiny. I can't believe that Kara was even smaller than this!
The girls keep sharing toys with her. I'm constantly finding dolls or toys in the bassinette and the pack n play. Kara loves to sit and watch her while I go to the bathroom, or whatever. She keeps saying how she is a great babysitter.
Evie's first bath at home, getting ready for a dr's appointment.
The dr. said everything was looking good with her. She is only down to 6lbs 11oz, so that's a pretty good weight so far. She hardly cried at the visit, she's such a good girl.
she loves sleeping in the boppy pillow. She snuggles right in and sleeps there for a few hours.
I think this is one of the pictures Kara took.
Lana bought these cow socks when she was here back in November. The looked pretty cute on her little feet. I especially like the tail on back.
Lana wanted to make me something sweet, so I picked her chocolate whipped cream cake. The girls were so excited to bake with Grams.
Ben ordered new hoodies for the girls from the online disney store.

Grams flew home yesterday afternoon. We sure loved having her here. After my mom leaves next week, I worry they will really feel the difference in attention. Ben will be back at work too, so we'll see how it goes, I guess.
These two really have been getting along better the past few days. Maybe because they have more people around to distract them from getting mad at each other. Kiersten didn't do too well with going potty while I was in the hospital, and the first day or two I was home. But I think I'm starting to get her back into the habit again, and excited to go in the potty.

Little Evie slept for 6 hours last night. I slept for 5 of those hours, which was so nice. I do remember that Kiersten was sleeping pretty good at first, but started waking up more after the first few weeks. So I'm prepared for some sleepless nights, but trying to take advantage of, and appreciate any time she sleeps for long stretches. It also helps having Ben and mom here to watch her so I can get naps if she isn't wanting to sleep very long.
