9 Pounds

WOW...I can't believe how far Hope has come in such a short amount of time.  When we brought her home from the hospital on October 28th, she weighed a little over 6 pounds...not much more than when she was born.  In 2 months she has gained almost 3 pounds and she has grown in so many other ways.  She is smiling like crazy now, she is grabbing for things, she is following us with her eyes, she is trying to roll over...she can go from her back to her side real well.  So many little things everyday that give us so much joy and happiness that it is hard to describe.  The boys love her so much and they can keep her entertained just by smiling at her.  Jerry even brings her his toys and tries to get her to play with them.  We are all so blessed!

The boys decided to build a snowman.  We really didn't have all that much snow, so they improvised and used a garbage can to create the snowman.  They loved it and he is quite the snowman.


  1. What a cutie! She's getting so big! I don't think I realized she's just over a month older than Chase! Our little guy has been smiling a lot lately which is SO FUN to watch! I can't wait for him start rolling over n' stuff, but part of me wants to keep him a little 2 month old forever! It's crazy how quickly time goes by when they're this little!

    Loved the snowman, too, by the way!

  2. I'm so happy to hear that she is gaining weight so well! Aly always has struggled with weight gain and it's very frustrating. Like us heart moms don't have anything else to worry about, right? :) Glad everything is going well and wish you and your family a happy new year!! :) :)

  3. She is so beautiful and looking so healthy and adorable! I wish you continued success with her health and that you can all enjoy being together like the beautiful family you are. Best wishes!


  4. Congrats on the 9lbs milestone.....Nicole and I are going to throw a 10 lbs party for Travis....Have a Happy New Year
