So, I am a little behind in getting this post together :) Easter this year was a little "staged" this year. We didn't make it to Church this year which was disappointing. We did get the girls together for some pictures, Lydia got to hunt some eggs in the yard, and they got a little something from the Easter bunny.

Lydia really LOVED looking for the eggs
Learning how to blow bubbles!
Just watching everything...
That evening we had dinner at Kane's parents. It was great to get out of the house and of course have a wonderful meal with family.
I can't believe that Caroline is already a month old. I told Kane that this month has just flown by...and he told me that this has been the longest month of his life :) We have kinda been on a rocky road. We have been told that Caroline is colic. Which has not been fun for all parties involved. I have been taking her to a Chiropractor in Wichita and she seems to be improving. I have been slightly frustrated because she will have a couple of good days followed by one that is NOT so hot. The Doc did tell me that she would be up and down for awhile. We went five days last week, four this week and I just made appointments for next week.
Needless to say we haven't had the camera out much...because, not one wants to see pictures of a crying baby, right?!?! Monday was a great day here and I decided to take so pics. I hope to remember to take some pictures tomorrow of Caroline and the big pink bear.
Lydia is still lovin' her. I can't wait for Caroline to feel 100% so we can all play togther and go do some things.

This picture cracks me up! I was at a meeting Monday night and dad had them posing :)
Caroline goes to the Dr.'s tomorrow. I will be interested to see how much she weighs. She seems to have gained some and I know she has gotten longer!
Baby Caroline (as her sister likes to call her) will be three weeks old tomorrow. The weeks have really flown by! Things started off a little rocky to say the least. Lydia and Kane have both been sick and I have had two infections. AND having two kids is HARD...I hope we are on the upswing here. I think Caroline might be a little colicy so we are going to see a Doc about her tomorrow. Of course she could just be a typical baby. Lydia really spoiled us and I think it is pay back time. Once she gets to sleep she is a good sleeper and I really can't complain about the amount of sleep I am getting...but, it is so different having another child to entertain :) Thankfully, I have a great family and wonderful friends that have kept Lydia a lot in the last couple of weeks!
BUT, no matter how rocky it has been...I am so thankful to have two healthy children. I am so blessed!
We haven't downloaded the pictures from the O.R and recovery. So, hopefully I can post them soon.
Me and my sweet Caroline
Lydia meeting her little sister for the first time. It was priceless :)

Really love this pic...so peaceful
It took until Saturday until Lydia really wanted to hold her and as you can tell she was pretty excited.
Two things SURPRISED everyone...her size and that hair! The moment I saw her...I looked at Kane and said "she is NO way as big as Lydia." Lydia was big and thick...Caroline has very tiny features. She weighed in at 8 lbs. 2 ozs. Which is super tiny in our eyes. I think the hospital staff thought we were crazy. They kept telling us.."that is NOT a small baby." Lydia was 9 lbs. 2 ozs. and everyone thought "this baby would be at least high 9's or maybe a 10 pounder. The next big surprise was her hair. Lydia didn't have this much hair until she was at least a year old.
I think Lydia really likes her sister. She tells us daily. "I like her" she also loves giving her kisses and hugs. When she hears Caroline cry..she says "she not happy."
I hope they will grow up being super close. I know they will have some rough patches...ahh things to look forward to :)
I am a stay at home mom to a spunky little girl named Lydia Grace and a beautiful baby girl named Caroline Reid. I have been married to my wonderful husband, Kane, since June 2002. I hope you enjoy keeping up with our busy lives through this blog!
