Last night Alf & Kelly braved the weather to bring us supper which we shared together. Micah was VERY excited to see "baby Taeya". Taeya is only 6 months older than Keziah but so much bigger!
Today Erik bundled Micah up to enjoy the snow. This was Micah's first real experience with it. We don't really have proper winter-wear for him since it's not generally needed out here in BC, but we piled on lots of layers and he seemed to stay warm and dry. Erik took him down the "slide" that Uncle Nathan made in the snow the other day. And then Micah helped Daddy shovel the sidewalk.
Keziah had her first photo shoot on our bed the other day. I was trying to get some good pictures to make her birth announcements and here are some of the shots that I didn't use:
Keziah saw the doctor on Monday and is almost 9 lbs already! She is also a little bit jaundiced. The doctor said if she stopped feeding well and didn't have alert times in the day, that she may have to go under the lights at the hospital nursery. I've been praying that this won't happen because of our trip and so far she seems to be doing fine. My mom told me to lay her in the sun and yesterday we had lots of sun and it seemed to help a little bit. The doctor gave us a letter stating that she is our daughter and seems to think that should satisfy airport security. I'm certainly hoping so!
Micah has been adjusting alright so far to having a baby sister around. He calls her "Zy-ah" and gives her occasional kisses - but has already hit her on the head a couple of times as well :( He doesn't seem to be too bothered with her one way or the other except if she's in the way when he's trying to sit on Mommy's lap. It'll be interesting to see how they interact once Keziah starts responding to people more.
Well, I should be off. I've got LOTS of packing to do for the big trip. I have a feeling we're going to need to bring a TON of stuff!
