The Opossum in the Back Yard

When I first saw her I thought she had been in a fight and her back was messed up. But as she was walking around my eyes focused better and I saw she had a baby on her back!

 Ethan spotted her, too, and took off after her. I didn't want to get too close so my photos are a bit blurry.
Look at the baby's little ears sticking up!
It's probably not a good idea to feed her? What do opossums eat anyway?

Lily Dawn- 1 Month Old

Lily is one month old tomorrow! Time really goes by too fast. 

She does wear purple sometimes rather then pink!

She is out of her newborn clothes and into 0-3 month. Some of our NB cloth diapers are not fitting and I had to order new prefolds to get us through to the next size. The prefolds I ordered are on the small side and might not fit for too much longer. Hopefully they will fit until she will fit in her brothers One Size diapers. I think she's around 9lbs but we will find out for sure next week at our check up.

She is staying awake longer in between her naps, sometimes for 2 hours. Unfortunately, sometimes the awake time is late at night or in the middle of the night. Not so good for Mama. But Daddy gets up in the morning with Big Brother Ethan so Mama can sleep in :)

No "social" smiles yet but Daddy says she smiles at him. She hates her car seat unless the car is moving so I wear her in a wrap when we go out.

Ethan loves to pull her socks off and kiss her head.

Lily Dawn- 2 Weeks

Lily at 2 weeks
(Better late then never.)
8lbs 2oz

 She is having a few awake periods during the day (around 15 minutes each) but mostly she sleeps for 3-4 hours, wakes to eat, diaper change and then right back to sleep.

Her belly button cord fell off so we started using our cloth diapers! I have had lots of fun trying out all the different styles on her.

Our Texas Boy Loves the Snow

Our snow fall for the year started last night around 10 and is already melting as I type. Ethan and Eli both have a snow day today. We started the day with cinnamon rolls and playing in the snow. We will eat soup for lunch while enjoying the cold weather.

First Snow Ball!

It was too cold.

One year ago in his first snow.

After playing in the snow Ethan enjoyed Hot Cocoa with his Daddy while coloring.

How to be a Good Big Brother

Make sure Baby Sister is safely in her car seat next to you.
(Ethan will not leave the house until Lily is in her car seat in the car.)

Check on baby when she cries.

Share your favorite toys with her.

"Help" with diaper changes by sharing more toys.

Let her hold a magnet.

Or all your magnets!

Watch TV together.

Jump on the bed together!
Overall just enjoy having a new "toy" to play with!
