Kyra finally met her Aunt Jen and her cousins Mia, Maddie, and Izzy last weekend! I'm sharing a few photos here that Jen put together and posted on her blog recently (check out the link on the right for "Mimi Bella Boo"). These pics are so cute, so I just couldn't resist posting them! Jen also took a bunch of pictures of Kyra, which I can't wait to see! Glancing at a few of them on her camera, they looked so adorable! So hopefully there will be some cute ones that I can use for Kyra's baby announcements! We had a great visit with the cousins, who were excited to hold Kyra. Izzy seems very anxious for Kyra to get a little older so that they can truly play together!
We're beginning to adjust to having Kyra, and we're learning to function on her time table. It's been a little cold and rainy here lately, but we've managed to get out for a few walks around the park with Kyra. The days can seem a bit monotonous, filled with nursing/feedings and not much time to actually rest or get things done. But I'm sure the time will keep flying by and, before we know it, we'll be looking back and wondering where these early days went! But I don't think we'll miss the nighttime feedings! We're planning to start sleep training when Kyra is around 6-8 weeks old, and she's already almost 3 weeks old now!
We're excitedly awaiting the arrival of Kyra's best friend, Natasha Olivia Larson. Shaunna is due to give birth on April 6th, but she could very well deliver this month! But let's just hope that Shaunna gets to comfortably enjoy her baby shower first, which is coming up in a couple weeks. But I can't wait for these babies to meet and start becoming best friends!
On that note, Kyra's waking up from her nap and it's time for me to go nurse her yet again!
