Here are some pictures from the two week old photo shoot that make me laugh and I wanted to share:

Giving her brother a little punch in the eye...

Stiff as a board. What the heck is going on!?

Ta-da! (without us prompting him Griz stood up and struck this pose, what a crack up!)

A little kick in the eye... (newborn photography isn't always as graceful as it might appear)

Totally wasted...

I'm on one of those "see food" diets...

It is still surreal to me that we have 3 kids! These boys love their sister so much, it is so much fun to watch!

Sanna has grown a ton this last week, she is really starting to fill out. Her skinny arms and legs aren't so skinny anymore and she has even gotten a little longer.  It seriously seemed like it happened over night. I was feeding her the other night at like 4 in the morning and she just looked so much bigger all the sudden, it was so weird!

I love the way she grunts, I will miss it when that goes away, even though it wakes me up in the middle of the night.  I love the way she looks around with wide eyes when she's awake, she just seems to be taking it all in.  My favorite thing that makes me laugh every time is the way she roots.  She has a really strong neck so she will just root around this way and that looking for something to get inserted into her mouth!

She smiles in her sleep all the time! It is so sweet, I can't wait until those smiles are in response to our smiles. She smiled with her eyes open today at church in the mother's lounge, it made a rough day at church feel a little better.
She looks a lot like Chico looked as a baby, her sleeping/eating habits even remind us of him a bit.  We are thinking she might turn blonde like him too because she has the blonde eyebrows.  We shall see!

Still need a studio picture of Brent with Sanna but here are these for now...

Finally can use our pink bather with pride!

Chico's First Day of Kindergarten

 After the countdown for baby was over, the countdown for kindergarten began! Chico was SO excited to start school. Nervous, yes. But he did pretty well in spite of that. He had a stressed out one-week post-partum mom with him so maybe he was anxious to get away from me, but he went to his spot in the class pretty well! :)  Okay, he did cling to my leg for a bit, but once he saw a spot to sit next to a wardie he was fine.
We have two weeks under our belt now and this is the scoop on school: Favorite part of school is recess. He earned a blue slip already!(That's a good thing) And I keep hearing him sing new learning type of songs that we didn't teach him. Too cute!  I drove past the other day while he was at recess and he happened to see the car, I waved at him and he waved back with a little bit of a shy smile.  Was he perhaps embarrassed to see me?! It was cute seeing him playing outside with the other kids either way.
