One week old!

McKenna's one week birthday!!
The boys went to church today and the girls stayed home (I've actually been sick...fever of 101.9 and a terrible cough...so pray for me). Christian was so cute. He took a picture of himself and McKenna to his Sunday school class and showed it to all of his friends. His Sunday school teacher emailed me tonight to tell me that when he sat down to have snack he told everyone at the table about "Kenna." He is such a proud big brother.
It is not uncommon to find Christian kissing on McKenna. He kisses her dozens of times a day and for the most part he is very gentle about it.
I would just love it if McKenna would end up being a thumb sucker!!! Christian is/was a thumb sucker and it's made him a great sleeper. McKenna also loves having a binkie, but the whole binkie thing scares me. It's so hard to get rid of and you constantly have to keep track of it. Thumbs never get lost. Christian still sucks his thumb, but mainly just at night or when he's tired. I guess it will be hard to get rid of too. I don't even want to tell you how old I was when I stopped sucking my thumb. Let's just say I was already in school for a couple of years before I truly gave it up. I've caught McKenna with her thumb in her mouth a couple of times, but she still has a hard time finding it and actually getting it in her mouth.

she is just beautiful! :) my other sister in law wishes her baby Bella (born in Nov) would find her thumb too...she gets up constantly in the night to put the pacy in the mouth! nuts... my other friend just had their first "pacy genie" come in the night and leave a present by their 3 year old son's bed and took the pacy in the night! :) it was quite creative...both have their pros and cons! :)

Such a sweet little face, although I've got to say she looks a little concerned about something in the first picture. Maybe she's just anticipating more of those big brother kisses!!

I am SO thrilled to hear about how crazy Christian is about his sister!!! What a blessing...and I will be praying that you get some good rest and can kick whatever bug you've got...
