Baby Kira Jane

Baby Kira Jane Sumsion was born on November 3rd 2010. She weighed in at 9 lbs. 10 oz., and was 22 inches long. She was welcomed by big sister Madilyn, Dad & mom (and a couple grandmas, grandpas, aunts & uncles). We love having her here. Madilyn had to adjust a little but she is now loving being the big sister & is so helpful & happy. Scott & I are still getting used to saying things using "kids" & "girls". Kira is sleeping rather well, we're feeling a little spoiled there, and mom is doing great (much better than expected actually-hooray for 2nd c-sections!). We are so grateful for our little family!

P.S. Please excuse the awful layout of this post. We uploaded all the pictures before we realized they were small & justified left...nice...

Madilyn decided that for Halloween she wanted to be Abby Cadabby from Sesame Street. I found a used blue Easter dress on ebay ($8 with shipping). Then I added floof until it looked like something Abby might have in her closet.

Lets just say Madilyn was thrilled to actually look like Abby (or close enough). She loved it all, from having the make-up put on, to pretending to use her wand. And going trunk-to-trunk to get candy?!? You just say trick-or-treat and they put a candy in your bag?!? She was totally in. Of course like so many holidays, it was just her little self and an adult entourage: Gigi, Papa, Uncle Justin, Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt Mimi, Uncle Jazz. Luckily cousin Isabelle is getting big enough to come along-she loves cousin Isabelle.
All in all it was a good Halloween, excited for next year when we have two little ones running around (and more costumes to make).
