We are sort of getting into a rhythm after a few weeks.  The kids love their little sister.  There has been no jealousy issues, which kind of surprised me.  
Conley doesn't really care to hold her, but he does come up to her and say "I'm Conley, your big brother" and "Don't cry, I'm here".  He also loves to show her his toys and got really excited this morning when she accidentally pushed his Thomas train.  He then tried to show her how to do it the right way.  
 Auburn is so motherly by nature.  She loves to hold and snuggle Sienna.  She reads to her and both kids sing to her when she cries.  She loves to come and just lay next to her.  She tells me "she is so beautiful". 




 I have to admit, the first time I saw this picture I teared up.  Love my little girls!

Sienna is starting to be more alert and likes to watch what her siblings are doing.

I feel seriously blessed to be the mom of these three sweet kids!

I could just eat her up!

One night Sienna was fussy, she turned her head next to Simon and feel asleep.  I am also grateful for a husband who is an awesome father.

movie of our trip to Mexico

Simon made a video of our trip to Mexico, Guatemala and Belize. Since I haven't gotten around to posting about the rest of our trip (that happened a year ago), I am just going to post the link to the movie on youtube.  Hope you enjoy!!!

Yesterday was Sienna's due date.  She is already two weeks old.  These past two weeks have been a lot more exciting than I had planned for, but sometimes that happens.

Two weeks ago, I went to the hospital to be induced.  Everything was going well, but I stopped progressing and my water had already broken.  After 12 hours of no progress and 22 hours of labor (don't worry I had an epidural) the decision was made that I needed a c-section.  To be honest I was broken hearted and cried the whole way into the operating room, but I knew that it was the right decision to get our baby girl here safe and sound.  The operation went well, but that first week was a very painful recovery for me.  I lived from ibuprofen to ibuprofen.  Just when I was feeling like a person again, I got mastitis that put me back in bed for a couple of days.  Then Sienna had an infected belly button and the medicine they gave me took most of my milk away and I had to supplement for the first time with formula…

Mexico - Mayan ruins II

Simon's parents had to get back to their mission in Mexico City and we continued on our trip.  We saw a lot of ruins, 9 in total.  This is the next post of Mayan ruins.  It was actually great for the kids as well.  They could run around, climb and explore. It was interesting to see the differences at each sight.  The kids had their favorites by the end of the trip.  We also taught them a little bit about Mayan culture.

These well preserved carvings were great.




Palanque These were probably my favorite ruins.  It is set in the jungle and it felt very peaceful there. It is hard to believe that only 10 percent of the structures are actually uncovered.  The rest are still covered by the jungle.

Temple of Inscription
The kids had a great time climbing up and exploring these temples.

We had a day of mostly driving and decided to stop at these ruins.  It was small, but really nice to explore.  They…
