One week old!!

We can hardly believe that Karlena is already over a week old. Time really does go fast but we are enjoying our time together as a family on "vacation". Dominic has to head back up to Tyler tomorrow night and it is going to be hard on everyone - especially him. Please pray for us as we begin yet another transition now that she is actually here.

The picture above is with Karlena's first teddy bear. The day we found out we were having a girl my sister Beth brought me some pink flowers and that teddy to my work.  When I pulled it out and laid it next to Karlena it was bigger than she was! She is such a bitty little girl!

 I had to show these 2 photos. Karlena and Elijah are about the same age in these pictures.  All of our boys looked identical when they were born so we were a bit curious as to what a girl might look like.  As you can see they definitely have similar features - but thankfully our girl has enough feminine features that makes her different than the boys! :)

Gabriel is such a good big brother. He is very concerned about how Karlena is doing and if she is "ok". If she cries he wants to know what is wrong with her and he really wanted me to take his photo with her this morning.  I tried to get Elijah in there as well but he wasn't having it! 

Isaac is a natural with her and although I don't have an updated photo to add here (I will get one soon I promise!) I can say that he has already changed several diapers - without being asked, and will hold her anytime I am willing to give her up (this is getting better). He is going to make an incredible father himself someday...when he is MUCH older!! :)

We hope you are having a great week and I will try and post lots more pictures soon!!

Such adorable pictures--man does she have some dark hair! Stay strong and you guys will be just fine, eventhough Dominic has to head back to MN--not long and you will all be together.

She is so beautiful - and the boys are so handsome! It seams she has already changed since I met her for the first time. I can't wait to see her again - and hold her. I know you will miss Dominic but time goes by fast and it won't be long and you will all be together. Miss you. Hugs!!!
