Work that Poo Out!

When I woke up this morning, Keegan was at Kaia's bedside singing her a little song. It went like this, "Work it out, work that poo out. It's just a tiny poo, so don't you cry. Just work it out, work that poo out." How nice for Kaia to have a cheerleader for the difficult times in life! :)

Catch Up

Things have been hectic around here since Kaia's arrival, but now that we've settled in a little bit I figured I would update the blog. I always love the Christmas season, but this year it was even more special since we had Kaia. Keegan got some really great stuff and a visit from Mimi, which is a special treat! My mom, "Mimi", came out on Christmas day and left on New Year's Day. It was really nice to have her here to help out with Kaia and play Wii Sports with Keegan! We even got to take a trip to Old Town, where Mom got some great deals on southwestern jewelry. We were all sad to see her go.

Gary and Sharee also made the trip out from Tucson in early January. They could only stay a couple of days, but we loved having them. (Except for the time when Grandpa beat Keegan at Wii bowling - then Keegan was a little bit upset, but decided to forgive him with a peace offering of some Junior Caramels!)

Now that Keegan is back in school, we've settled into a groove. I'm back to playing volleyball and am slowly getting back into working out. I went to my first salsa class this week, which I've missed like crazy! Kaia is such a good baby - she sleeps for 6 hours at a time at night and takes formula from Doug when I'm at my volleyball games. She's up to 9 lbs 8 oz and can almost fit into the 0-3 month clothes that I've been dying to put her in!

happy New Year!

Pics of Kaia

My friend, Holly Randall, took some newborn pics a couple of weeks ago. Kaia was NOT cooperating! But thanks to lots of patience from Holly, she got some really cute shots. I think Kaia pooped on 4 blankets by the time we were through :) Check out the pics here.

Our New Addition

so tiny


he loves to hold her

doesn't she look like a cute, grumpy old man?

sweet, sleepy smiles

Kaia Rowan Gooch arrived in this world at 5:42am on December 16th, 2009. She weighed in at 6 lbs. 15 oz. and was a little beaten up when she got here. Even with a slightly black eye and swollen nose, we could tell from the start that she was a cutie pie! She's absolutely perfect now and we all adore her. She already has Keegan and Doug completely wrapped around her tee-tiny little finger and I'm not too far behind. She's proven to be a better sleeper than her older brother, which helps me to be a happy mom! We all love to just watch her. I swear I spend hours every day just staring at her! I love to see the cute, fleeting expressions on her face as she sleeps. She also has a trademark horsey noise that she makes all the time which cracks us up. She's such a sweet little girl and is a great blessing in our lives :)
