She just has a nice tan!
Major problems.

Good News!

Our little Jillian has been jaundiced as we expected. When I took her in to have her blood checked yesterday her count was up above 12 so we had to take to the hospital today to have her blood checked again. Lucky for us she loves to eat and is flushing the nasty stuff out. So today her count was going back down. I am so glad we don't have to take her back and to the light treatment.

Precious Bundle

Jillian Louisa Kendig entered the world on Friday, September 21, at 9:15 am. She weighed 7lbs 12 oz and is 21 1/2 inches long. She was 2 1/2 weeks early, but other than being a little jaundiced like her brother and sister Allie, she is doing very well. She sleeps all of the time and enjoys eating and opening one eye. We have yet to hear her cry. She does like to make little squeeking sounds. Emily, Thomas and Allie are all absolutely in love with her. Rex isn't quite sure what to make of her. We all think that she looks exactly like Emily did except she doesn't have a head full of black hair like Emily. We are all doing well and are excited to have another tiny at our house.

Emily's 9th Birthday

Sunday was Emily's birthday. We actually celebrated on Saturday because Nate and Mina's family were here and they left early Sunday. We spent all day swimming and eating and having a good time. Matt and Brooke came with their kids and of course it was at Grandma and Grandpa's house. It wouldn't be a birthday party if it wasn't there. It was only 103' on Saturday. Nothing compared to the 110' Monday. Too hot, especially when you are 9 months pregnant.

The kids had a blast trying to break open the pinata. Those things are made of steel. Note that Allie had her life jacket on the entire time. You never can be too safe.

Emily finally breaks it open.
I love Allie's face. CANDY
David grabbed his candy and ran to the trampoline and immediately started digging in. He wasn't going to risk losing it.

Poor Jack.

This one looks serious.

First Day of School!!!

Tuesday was the first day of school for Emily and Thomas. Em is in the 4th grade and has an awesome teacher, Mr. Sanders. There are 38 kids in her class. I guess that it is against the law (as it should be) so they are going to be moving some kids around. Thomas is in kindergarten. He has been so good. I thought that he would have a hard time leaving his mama but it has been quite the opposite. He doesn't even look back. Allie is loving having mom all to herself. She starts school on Monday. Hopefully everything goes well for her.
