I could look at this photo all day!
(P.S. I don't mean to brag, but I did her photoshoot and caught this and some other cute shots of our little gal! Usually Eli does all the awesome photography but he is so super busy so I just decided to do it myself. I did have to take about 200 photos to get like 20 good ones though!)

Now that we have two kiddos, here are some trends I notice in babies that Eli and I produce:

  • They look almost identical
  • They gain weight fast! Kenz is already 10 pounds at 3 weeks old. That's 95th percentile! Tan was the same way and remained chunky for most of his first year. We'll see if Makenzie goes as skinny as he does when she eats mostly solids.
  • They sleep well at night. Once we put them down as babies, they sleep soundly and just wake for a couple feedings and fall right back asleep. We are lucky parents!
  • Sucking on a binky calms them down when they are upset.
I love both of our darling little munchkins!!

Our little darling!

I just spent lots of time posting pictures of Makenzie on facebook and I need to go to bed. SO I'm going to put the link to those photos here:

We just adore her! She is just beautiful! And she looks SO much like Tanner did when he was born but has more feminine features that set her apart from him. And she has brown hair and darker skin. She is super calm and chill. She definitely can cry hard but only if she's really upset about something. Tanner definitely has more of an intense personality than she has so I think that she is going have more of Eli's disposition than mine. She is such a good sleeper (during the day and at night) and she loves to snuggle. She usually ends up in bed with us every night and sleeps so well because she is a little snuggler. She is just a doll and we love her so so so much!

Baby Makenzie

Welcome to the world Makenzie Ella!! She was born on Wednesday, March 2nd at 12:34pm in Burlington, Vermont. She was delivered by C-section and everything went very well for her and mom. We are so blessed to have her in our lives and already love her a ton! Here are a few pics with more to come soon!

Tanner couldn't go to the hospital because of strict visitation policies due to the flu season, so he had to wait for 3 days to meet Kenzie. This picture was taken right after he met her at home. He already adores her and kept saying "HI!" in the cutest high pitched voice! He wants to hold and touch his "little sister" all the time. So cute!
