A week in pictures

Lyndi had her 2 week checkup this past week. She is healthy and growing like a weed! In 16 days she has gained 2 pounds. I am thinking in the next couple weeks she will be out of her 0-3 month clothes :( My kids grow up way to quickly, I wish this newborn stage could last a little longer.
Here are my 3 beautiful girls.

Rain, snow and more rain! I can't wait for sunny skies and warm weather.

A family affair

Below is Lyndi after her bath. She really enjoyed relaxing in the warm water.
Everyone wants to help out. I had to make sure both Ayla and Keanna had equal opportunites "picking things out." One girl would pick out the onsie, the other PJ's, I even had them choose the wash cloth we used to wash Lyndi. Below is a picture of us dressing Lyndi after her bath.

Lyndi LOVED the bath. She just sat back and enjoyed being pampered.

Everyone loves Lyndi

"It's my turn to hold Lyndi (or Yndi if your Ayla)." is a common phrase around our house.
Lyndi is a very lucky girl to have 2 sisters who adore her.
We are very pleased with how both Keanna and Ayla have adjusted and completely accepted Lyndi into our family.

Justin and I feel very blessed to have 3 beautiful girls of our own.

Poor Lyndi :(

On Thur Feb 26th Lyndi's eye started to become goopy. Within hours it progressed to a swollen shut eye. I rushed her to the ER room that night in hopes of receving a simple solution, like eye drops. They confirmed that she had a clogged tear duct, but also were concerned that she might have RSV. That meant another night in the hospital. The last thing I wanted was my 5 day old at home with me with RSV. The next morning, they confirmed that Lyndi did not have RSV, but they were very worried about the infection in her eye, which was getting progressivly worse.

Later that day we saw an eye doctor and he suggested we do a eye procedure to clear the clogged duct, as soon as possible. Within 1 1/2 hours she was on the bed on her way to her first surgery. Luckily, it was a very non invasive surgery and she was back in my arms 15 min later. We stayed one more night at the hospital. The next morning, after seeing the eye doctor, we were allowed to come home. Above is Lyndi at home after much improvement to her eye.

who's that monkey in our bed?

Sometimes the girls don't go straight to sleep. The other night Justin walked upstairs and found Ayla making herself at home in our bed. He told her she could sleep in our bed, but couldn't have a light on or the door open.
She got out of our bed and walked back to her bed.
