Ok...this is my first attempt at being better about updating our blog! Our subscription to the girls baby website is expiring in a few days so rather than pay for another year Erik has decided to create a website where I can share pictures, etc. Since I'm not sure when (or if!) that will happen I'll try to keep this updated for now :) I think I'll even point our old website to this blog instead of the old site.

As you all probably know by now, we welcomed Sophie Catherine on May 29th at 1:47am! She was 8lbs 5oz and 20 1/2 inches long. Since then she's been growing like a weed!! At her 3 week appoinment she was 9lbs 10oz! We have another appt when she's 2 months old so I'm anxious to see how big she is then.

Sophie was lucky enough to have lots of visitors in the hospital. On her first day of life she got to meet her Nana Denise, Papa Dave, Grandma Cathy, Grandpa Dave, Auntie Tricia, Uncle David, Great Grandma Rose, Great Grandpa Pat, plus her honorary aunties...Chrissy, Amanda & Lacey (and Carson!) Plus Uncle Nate and Miss Vera too!

Addison absolutely loves her baby sister...and lovingly calls her 'cry baby' which makes us laugh every day. She's been very helpful at home by getting diapers, burp cloths, pacifiers and anything else we need. She loves to hold Sophie too! She's really adjusted pretty well considering that her entire world has been turned upside down.

Yesterday marked Sophie's 1 month birthday! It's hard to believe that it's already been that long...we're enjoying every moment (even the crazy ones!) and Sophie is even letting her mama get a decent amount of sleep at night!

Here are a few more shots of our first month...
