Hanging out with Corwin

We had such a blast today. We all woke up early, and went for a nice long walk, came home to eat, and then created some really fun pictures. Kimberly and I were talking, and she mentioned, "It's bizarre to think that we are a family of 5 now."

I always knew this day would come, but I still feel too young to have a family of 5. In a way I'm very excited and thrilled, and in another sense I view myself as just a big kid (with a lot of responsibility). I'm still  waiting to feel like a grown-up, but maybe this is a good feeling? Hahahaha

Corwin was already back to his birth weight of 5lbs 15oz at his doctor appointment 3 days after he was born! Kimberly is doing very well, and the kids are adapting nicely. We attribute most of this to the fact we have been praying for Corwin as soon as we knew he was coming. Both of the kids love giving Corwin kisses, especially L. These pictures:

were completely unscripted.

Kimberly and I are both excited for the things to come, and always look forward to the adventure.

Not sure what's going on in this picture, but it's not a poopy diaper, THANK GOODNESS!

I almost didn't include a picture of L, because she was throwing such a tantrum. These are the best she had today. Even when she pouts she looks so adorable though!

     For those of you who may not know, we are pregnant. It has been my fault that there have been no pregnancy pictures for everyone to see, and for that I apologize. Someone once told me, with each kid you get a little more absent minded... I almost missed my window of opportunity to post pregnancy pictures. The reason for that was because early this morning I received a call at work, "Jonathan, I'm really have strong contractions about 8 min apart..." So we scrambled the parents, and they began the drive from College Station.

     Now this is a bit reminiscent of what happened two years ago with L. Kimberly's parents came, and then she stopped having contractions. She tried walking, exercising, riding a lawnmower... and then the baby came two weeks later.

     Kimberly felt confident that this was the real deal. So I'm expecting a call at work saying that they've arrived at the hospital and are being admitted, but nothing. So I come home, Mike and Janice are there, and Kimberly is just going through her normal routine. A bit confused I ask what the plan was. We are going to stay at home until the contractions get too painful, THEN we'll go in... So I went to sleep and told Kimberly she can't have the baby until I have at least 4 hours of sleep. Well it is now 2107, she's been having contractions all day, Aaron Ameny even came over and showed us some reflexology to help induce labor. So before it is too late, here are some pregnancy pictures.
We thought it would be fun to take some cute pictures with the kids as well And those are the pictures we want to show people, but this is really what happened... We do always have fun though, and we are so lucky to have some of the cutest kids in the world!

Birthday Bash

Eliana turned 2 this past May 7th, and we had such a great time with family! Some were more ready for the party to begin than others... but everyone had a great time, especially Eliana. It didn't really matter what we did, L was so excited about EVERYTHING. Presents, people, candles, cupcakes, it all worked for her. Ashton Kutcher took a break from his busy work schedule of shooting Nikon 1 ads, and stopped by as well! Thank you to everyone for the phone calls and birthday wishes.
