Victoria is one month old

Well, I just can't believe that we have had Victoria here for a month already! She has just changed so very much in the past month. We went to the doctor yesterday and she has gained 2 pounds and gotten 2 and a half inches taller since birth. She has had a busy month! We think that she is going to smile any day now. She already smiles with her eyes (which Riley did also).

We are looking forward to seeing a bit more of Carey now that classes are over. It will be short-lived since he will be taking two classes this summer in the evenings and doing his internship during the day. Please be in prayer for him as he prepares to take his finals starting a week from today.

Grandpa and Grandma Visit

Riley and Victoria's grandparents from Michigan came for a visit this past weekend. We had a blast just sitting around and holding Victoria and playing with Riley. We had a Riley day on Sunday where we went to the zoo, rode the train and then went for spaghetti ... Riley had a blast!

Getting to know Victoria

Well, it has been 4 weeks since our little Miss Victoria Jean arrived and we think that we are getting a glimpse of her personality. She is usually very content most of the time and kinda laid back. She has developed her schedule and sticks to it (just like Mommy). We enjoy our mornings and our evenings with her, she is usually awake from 9AM until noon and 7PM until 10PM. She doesn't put up much a fuss, but when she does, her little cry is so very cute!

Riley is still being a huge help. He will just sit there forever and hold her pacifier in her mouth. He really wants to pick her up and carry her around, but that will have to wait awhile.

We are getting ready today for Grandpa and Grandma to visit (Carey's dad and step-mom). We are just so very excited for them to meet Victoria and get to play with big brother Riley.

Victoria is here!!

Well, now that we are all feeling better, I thought I would annouce our newest arrival. Victoria Jean Thompson is here! She was born on Thursday, March 22nd at 6:42 PM, weighing in at 6 lbs and 8 oz and 18.75 inches long. She is just absolutely beautiful. I think that Carey and I are still in shock that the Lord gave us a little girl. We just never pictured ourselves with a girl. We are still saying that we can't believe it over two weeks later.

Riley is a great big brother. He loves little Miss Victoria! It is amazing how much he has grown up over these past few weeks. He loves to hold her and lets me know as soon as she makes a sound that her diaper needs to be changed and she needs to eat.
