So, who do ya think he got that head and neck from?
Here are a few more recent pictures of Porter. He's a little more awake now, but unfortunately we don't have a lot of pictures of him not crying, because as I said before, when he's awake he's usually screaming for food.
We love you little Porter! Welcome to our family!
As for the rest of us, we are all doing pretty well. Nathan and I take shifts with the baby at nights and in the mornings, so we're handling the sleep deprivation together very well. Everything else in life has pretty much gone out the window for the time being, but we both know that time will pass all too quickly, so the house will have to wait.
Dallin is almost done with his first grade year of school. I went to his parent/teacher conference this last week and his teacher said that he has 4's in every category that is graded. (4's are the equivilent to A's) She also said that she did timed reading testing for each stundent in the class and Dallin not only scored off the chart, but when she entered his score, the computer indicated "unlikely." She thought that was pretty funny.
Emma is getting ready for kindergarten. After Porter was born, we realized what a pain long hair could be, and since Emma is so independent and does her own hair in the morning, we decided to get a hair cut. This is Emma before:
this is her now:
And the best part about it was that because she had at least 10 inches of hair taken off, she was able to donate it to "Locks of Love," which is an organization that makes hair pieces for children who have lost their hair because of medical issues, such as cancer. So not only did she get a cute hair cut, but she did a good deed too.
Logan continues to be our subtle comedian. He keeps us chuckling all the time. He has adjusted very well to having a new baby around and is very helpful and patient. He has, however, over the past 3 months (due we think to an illness back in January), developed a breathing problem because of overly enlarged (we're talkin huge) tonsils. Just ask Carrie. She has lived with his snoring, and interrupted breathing every night since she has lived here, so we took him to an ENT today, and it looks like we'll be heading to the hospital on April 23 for a tonsil/adenoidectomy. Because of his age we might have to spend the night at the hospital. Anyways, we're all (except for Logan) a little anxious about the surgery and the recovery to follow, so your thoughts and prayers would be greatly appreciated.
Well, that's what's new here. We love you all!
