One Month! Fireflies! Winnings! Oh my!

We have been parents for over a month! Can you believe it? Kayla hardly can, check out that furrowed brow! Changing dirty diapers has become old-hat, and on occasion (like last night) she sleeps completely through the night. We're lovin' it!

Also, the fireflies have come out here in the "Land of Lincoln". First we caught a bunch of them, then I taught them to march in single file, and finally we tried to take a picture with a slow shutter speed to capture the magic. As is evidenced by the bottom picture, the magic is hard to capture. I need to instill a little more discipline in my troops. We did get a few glimmers though, so I guess we get an "E" for effort.
And finally, we won!!!! Can you believe it, I participated in this contest and won! Coupons! Valued at over $10! Wish we could've gotten the salad dressing as well, but I can see how it's hard to fit that in a #10 envelope. Thanks Matt & Brittany!!

A few more pics

Here's some more pics of our baby girl! She's starting to fill out a little, although that's relative, as she's roughly the size of a cabbage patch kid. She's also working on getting through her first break-out of baby acne, but a sense of vanity is yet to develop, so it's not really a problem.

Wow that was fast! It didn't even take 2 hours, and A-town - you win 10 points to cherish forever, and we saved the umbilical stump for you to pick up at you leisure. Just kidding, that's disgusting.

Kayla - Post II

Here are a few more pics of our beautiful little nocturnal child!

Her first bath at home - she is yet to enjoy the bath, but we're hoping that if we do it before bedtime, it'll get her worn out enough that she sleeps a little longer. We'll let you know how it works...
This is what she looks like at about 4'oclock in the afternoon
Little feet!
My happy girls!Our family! - if you look close, you can see I'm wearing our little daughter. She loves to go on walks, and she really likes it when we take her outside. We were going to go out again tonight, but it was hailing, which she might not have liked so much...
