I'm pleased to say that we have been adjusting well to being at home. Hayes is such a sweet baby! When we left the hospital on Wednesday, he weighed 6# 14oz and Friday at the pediatrician's office he was back up to 7# 3oz. So far, he has been doing really well with an every 3hr schedule. Drake and Kennedy both seem to be adjusting well to having a new sibling, too. Kennedy is already a big helper, and she's good about asking if she can help first. Daddy put a step stool by the changing table for her. She likes to talk to him and entertain him during diaper changes.

I'm thrilled that on our way home from the hospital last week, we stopped by the car dealership to pick up my new suburban! I earned my new car through Kyani's Dream Car Program! The timing was absolutely perfect because it is just the right size for our family of 5... plus a nurse :) 

Drake and Kennedy were both very brave when the received their flu shots. Drake definitely took notice of being in a new car! I love that he is aware of his surroundings and definitely knew something was different. 

Brian and I are learning the balance of managing our time between 3 kiddos, and we haven't mastered it yet. But we'll keep working on it, and I'm sure we will improve with more time.

Sweet sister kisses! I asked her if she wanted to give her baby brother a kiss. She looked around and said, "I want to give all these brothers kisses!"
