2 Weeks old already....

In this post Haley is 2 years, 6 months and 20 days old and Mackensy is 15 days old:

Well, they say time flies when you are having fun, and boy that couldn't be more accurate. Seems like just yesterday I was at the doctor for my 36 week appointment to find out that Mackensy was breech and that she would be born 3 weeks later...and now she is 2 weeks old. Just goes to show we can try and plan things all we want, but the good Lord reminds us we aren't in control. My daughters are good at reminding me of that :)

We have had a great first two weeks. Mackensy is a very good baby, she is starting to be more alert during the day and sleeping better at night. She had her 2 week checkup yesterday and her stats were as follows: Weight 6lbs 10oz (back to birth weight) Height 19 3/4 inches (grown 1 1/4 inches since birth) and head 35cm. Dr. Molly said she is very pleased with her progress and we are doing a great job. Let's just hope that life continues that well.

Adjusting to life with two hasn't been bad. Ethan and I were just discussing the other night how it sort of feels like she was just always here. Haley has been a great big sister, she really loves Mackensy. Wants to say her prayers with her every night and asks where she is the moment she wakes up. I love having such sweet girls :)

Well, that's about it for now, below are some recent pictures for you viewing pleasure!

Love, Susan
