Sophie's first...and hopefully last cast

Sophie's leg is not broken, let's get that out there because I don't know how a 5wk old could break their leg without the parent looking a little negligent (although I'm sure it happens). Instead, she has a mildly clubbed left foot. So in order for her to live my dreams of her becoming a beautiful dancer one day (or a basketball player if you ask Kev) we are getting it corrected. Ry picked blue for the cast color so needless to say everyone was commenting on how cute our little boy's hair was the whole way out of the hospital.
On a side note, a visit to a Children's Hospital quickly makes you appreciate the healthy bodies your children have. We met an adorable 5 yr. old boy who was in a wheel chair and has cerebral palsy. We chatted with him for a while, he was so outgoing and talkative. We then saw him on the way out of the hospital and started chatting again. He pointed out how he now has a cast just like Sophie's, but he has two of them instead of one. Seeing all the kids in the hospital with their various conditions broke my heart, but talking to this little boy brought a huge smile to my face.

A Gross Post

It is only a matter of time before one gets pooped on when you have a baby. Last night was our night, at 3 in the morning. I'm not talking blowout, I'm talking about mid diaper change a stream of baby poop spraying all over my shirt. Thankfully Kev woke up from my gasp and helped clean everything up so we could all go back to bed (seriously thanks Kev). One may not have a preferred time to be pooped on, but mine would be during the day.

This is what happens when I finish feeding baby and ask Kev to put her "away"
Which is not too far off from where she actually sleeps....the closet.

Matching Sisters

Ry and Sophie have one set of matching outfits (thanks Aunt Ruth!), so today for church they were matchy matchy.

Don't mind the booger in this picture. And I thought getting a decent pic. of just Ry was hard.

Blessing Day

Although this pic. is not of Sophie's baby blessing day, it is pretty cute. She slept through her bath only to awaken and scream the moment we took her out. The best part of baths is afterwards when her hair dries and becomes the softest little fro (As seen in her blessing pics).

We decided to bless Sophie today because it was the only time we would have any family in town (my mom and little bro). We really wish Grandpa and Grandma Mc. could have been there, but we will see you soon!
