Ok, so I don't know where the time goes! Sydney is already 3 weeks old tomorrow! I can hardly believe it! She is absolutely a doll! We love her to death---Mckenna especially!!! She is such a good baby so far. She is a great sleeper (unlike her big sister!!) and sleeps mostly through the night already. I usually have to wake her to feed her. Other than being a spitter-upper (just like her sister and mom, so I've been told), she has been fairly easy to adjust to. We are so blessed to have her in our family!
Last week was the 1st time we ventured back to church. Although we only lasted through Sacrament meeting, it was good to be back at church and see everyone. Mckenna was excited to go back to church and get to wear her pretty dress again!
My mom got Mckenna and Sydney these matching outfits. They looked so adorable in them. Mckenna sure does love her little sister...if you can't tell by her smile!! =)
These last 3 weeks have been full of excitement and pretty much just craziness. Adjusting to having 2 kids to take care of and also trying to figure out what to do with the unexpected news of Chris' job has been somewhat challenging.
Last week, we went out of town for a full week to Reno, NV for Chris' work. They want him to transfer there for work. So, we packed up the kids and went with him there for a week. We were trying to get a feel for the area and the job and to see if moving there is right for our family right now.
It was an adventure, to say the least. I was cooped up in a condo mostly the whole week with a 2 year old and a 2 week old. We didn't have anywhere to go and really even if I would have wanted to go anywhere, I probably wouldn't have with the girls. It was raining and snowing most of the week too. It was kind of a stressful week, but we survived and now we are back home. I am so grateful to be back home.
Chris decided that taking the job in Reno and moving our family so far away isn't the right choice right now in our lives. So now we are just kind of taking time to be together as a family and are awaiting what will be the next stage in our life. We love each other. We love our kids. We love the Lord and we know things will work out the way they should, in due time. Life is definitely unexpected at times, but we are just so grateful for our families and friends and the Gospel. They really are the things that help us get through tough times.
