Zoey is 1 Month!

What an eventful first month Zoey has had! She has grown so much, and hardly resembles the same baby we brought home. At 1 month old, she now weighs 9 pounds and 8 ounces, almost 3 pounds more than when she was born! She is giving real, genuine smiles now, and once in a while will make coos and ahs.

We celebrated Zoey's baptism yesterday morning during the 10:30 mass at St. Catherine's church. It was a longer mass, but Zoey was a trooper and did wonderfully. Even Kyle was behaving like a champ! We were happy to share the day with family and friends. We are very blessed to have such wonderful people in both ours and Zoey's life! We were especially thrilled to host "Uncle" Curt for a few days. Aurora loves having someone new to play Nintendo DS with.

In other news, Aurora is attending swimming lessons and Tae Kwon Do. She is enjoying both. They are learning weapons in Tae Kwon Do, and they even get to jog to the park some days and have practice there. Ms. Stacy is a very special coach, and we are very fortunate to have her teaching Aurora.

Kyle is up to his usual 3 year old naughtiness! He LOVES LOVES LOVES his new baby sister though. He dotes over her, and he will sit by her bassinet and wait for her to wake up.

We are looking forward to a mini-vacation in the cities in August. We are planning on going to the "A Day with Thomas" and I am hoping to take a quick trip out to the outlet mall :-) We are also hoping to get out to Bemidji to see Grandpa and Grandma for the weekend.
