Photo Shoot

My lovely friend Regan took these pictures a few days ago... her talent combined with Leah's adorableness made for some photos worth sharing. Thanks Reg! P.S. I do know how big the bow is.

Catch up

It's hard to find time to shower lately, let alone blog, but for the sake of all you anxious Grandparents and Aunts, here's a little update.


Shayla turned a whopping 6 years old last week!

I was sick so we had to cancel her planned birthday bash, but she was a trooper. And I learned that as long as there's cake and presents it doesn't really matter how big the hoopla is.

She's such a big helper lately and loves to take care of Leah.

Kyler has done so much better with his new little sister than I expected. He's only had one melt down about her which happened yesterday, "Don't hold your baby! Put her down, put down Weah!" Other than that the only time he throws a fit lately is when he wants to hold her and has to wait until she's done eating or sleeping. He's not exactly gentle though. We're working on it.



Leah's busy getting bigger. Her little life is filled with first's.
This picture is so close up that it doesn't even look like her, but I was frantic to get a picture of her first smile!

First time meeting Great Grandma Mills

First day of church






Zach's so busy right now (he's listening to lectures on those headphones, not music). But of course he's doing a spectacular job being a Dad and dental student. I was reminded of this last night when I was saying prayers with Shayla. This is a little part of her prayer word for word, "I'm grateful for Daddy and that he's funny and he fills Kyler and my heart with laughter". So cute. Thank you Zach for being Super Dad.


Shayla also mentioned me in her prayer, "I'm grateful for Mom and all her hard work". Thanks for noticing Shayla! Although I'd rather fill your heart with laughter, someone has to do the dirty work. In all seriousness, 3 is definitely different than two. But, I have this coping mechanism for stress. It's called being even more irresponsible than usual. What I mean is that everything lower on the totem pole than the three munchkins gets... delayed. So, sorry for not answering my phone, not sending thank you cards or returning tuperware, and not doing any number or other things I'm supposed to be doing right now. I'll get around to it. But thank you again all you supportive wonderful people. We feel very loved.

Little Leah

We're finally home and feeling settled with our new little one! Thank you friends and family for the well wishes. And big thank you's to Nana for coming to help, Uncle Ty and Aunt Courtney, and our wonderful friends for your help and support! Here are a few (or more than a few) pictures of little miss Leah.
