Being "New Parents"...its a hard job!

Makena is offically 10 weeks and 2 days old. Adam and both are figuring out that being parents is not an easy job! We are very blessed to have Makena sleeping between the hours of 10 pm- 4ish am, feed then back down until 7:30ish. You would think that is enough sleep for one person, its not. Trying to catch up from the last 10 weeks is hard!

Today she had her two month check up! She is getting bigger, but not as big as we thought. She is now 8 lbs 6 ounces and 22 inches long! Dr. Suzuki said she is getting bigger, but just remember what she was born at, it will take awhile to 'catch up'. I like to tell Adam that she might be a midget. She had four shots today and she took it like a pro! I was so proud of her. Daddy had to comfort her as I turnned my head, its just too much for a mommy to watch. So the rest of the day will be spent spoilling her and relaxing.

We had Pete stay with us earlier last week. He has been at my parents house since Makena was born. Adam and I didn't know about having him back so we had a 'trial run' with him last week. He did great with Kena, but we decided that he needed more attention then we were able to give. So we are proud to say that Grandpa Craig and Grandma Cindy are the new owners of Petey, the wonder dog! We will have Kena visit Petey often as he is still important to us and Petey did love Kena. While she was napping he would want to check on her! It was VERY cute, but hard to do when I, myself, was trying to get things done around the house. We love Petey so much but I think he will do so much better at the Grandparents house.

Yesterday Adam started his new job at Nova Fisheries. He is spending this week getting to know the 'ropes' and also buying a new camera (which is WAAAAY better than our digtal!), computer and 'work truck'. God has put some amazing people in our life and this job will be great for Adam!

Well baby Kena is crying, feeding time!
