First, congratulations to my cousin Jenn and her husband Jay on the birth of their adorable daughter Brienna! We are so happy for you guys!!
We have been parents for 3 whole weeks now! Crazy! People tell you how hard it is but I don't think you can fully understand until you experience it yourself. What no one told me was how much it would change my feelings for my husband. I have always loved him, more than anything, but seeing him in daddy mode with the baby that we made together has opened up a whole new type of feeling. He is amazing and now I find myself worrying not only for my daughter, but my husband too! I worry if he is getting enough sleep and how he is adjusting to our new roles. I want to make sure he still feels important and knows how much I love him! I don't think anyone ever told me about this change!!
Since I write this blog....thank you honey for all your help and I look forward to raising our beautiful daughter together! I love you!!
And thank you everyone for all your help as well. We are so blessed to have such wonderful family and friends! Bye for now!

Kaia is 2 weeks old today! Where has the time gone? Before we know it Sean will be back at work and I will still be adjusting to my new role as Mommy! She is gaining weight which is evident in her fat little cheeks! I love her expressions and all her little noises. Stacey came over today to take Kaia's first pictures. Please check out her blog over the next few days to see the pictures and slideshow. Stacey is an amazing photographer and we thank her for being so talented! Staceymphotography.blogspot.com
Here are a few of our latest pics....sponge bath, Sean vacuuming with his little buddy! We love her, even though she doesn't let us get much sleep at night!

I have been meaning to post an update every day but things seem to be so busy!! Kaia is doing well, already changing so much in my opinion! I just wish she liked to sleep more at night! I can't believe how much she looks like Sean...it's funny! It is amazing how one little being requires so much of your time, attention and love! She is so precious; we are so in love!
With sadness, we lost Griffin the day after Kaia came home. We miss him so much and still don't believe he isn't here anymore. Rest in peace buddy, we love you forever!

Our beautiful baby girl, Kaia, was born today at 2:32pm. She weighed in at 7 lbs. 11 oz. and is 19 1/2 inches long. What an amazing addition to our family! We are so happy and proud to share the news! Since it was his job to announce the baby's gender, Daddy Sean was surprised to say, "It's a boy...wait, no, it's a girl!" After being placed on Mommy Julie after birth, Baby Kaia promptly peed and pooped before anyone could get a diaper on the little one!
