The post where I officially shove my kid down your throat.

Not to go all "mommy blogger" on you, but I have some family requesting photos. And, in my new-mom euphoria, I will indulge them. So...here's Lola Dee's first week.

Okay, these next two don't have Lola in them, but they're pretty awesome. When Kenny's family all came to meet the girl, Kenny and Hudd took the boys outside for some skate boarding. A 500 square-foot apartment feels a whole lot smaller with a 5 and a 2.5 year-old in it.

Kenny with Sloan then Hudd with Hudson...

And yes, Hudson insists on wearing his boots everywhere. And no, we do not let him take them off in the house. (Little boy feet can be pretty smelly (: )

And here's "Aunt Mamy" or Amelia. I could (and probably will) devote an entire entry to how wonderful she has been throughout my pregnancy and Lola's birth. More to come on that...
"Uncle Mickey-Michael"
"Uncle Gordo"
Some of Kenny's fam...Jordan, Ana, Lola, and Mom DeAnne
Skyler and Elise came to visit...
Skyler was super tired. So was Lola for that matter.
Lola is the first grandkid on my side. My mom is sort of relishing all this.
Bathtime wasn't so fun. I pretty sure I cried a little, too.

Of course WE love her...



I love her toes.
Jason (and little Charlie) took Kenny to an Angels game, but came in to meet Lola (and my mom, Doreen).
Hudson came for another visit and was sure to "santertize" his hands before holding Lola.
Uncle Ryan also drove down from Utah for one night to meet his first niece.
Lola really likes to sleep. Grandma's lap was a pretty good place for a nap. (Thanks Pickle for the cute clothes!)
Okay...Lola Dee is named after her great-grandmother, Lola Gene. Thanks to Skype, the two Lolas were able to meet sooner than expected.
Kenny LOVES her.

And finally we come to this one. When Lola came, I had NO clothes for a baby. Not knowing the gender means = no clothes. So, once Lola made her debut, I received BAGS of clothes from everyone (Nicole, Amelia, DeAnne...) - my mom even made Kenny stop on the way from the airport just to buy clothes. And, with Lola being a girl and all, I was inundated with pink - all cute stuff, but still pink. So, my mom indulged me yesterday and made some leggings. See below.

My little Disco Queen.
It's official. We'll keep her.

Best dressed newborn I've ever seen. She is beautiful. I love all the pictures of Lola with her oogling parents.

By the way, thanks for letting me babysit last night. It was fun running into your family of three at the gym, and holding your kid while you and Kenny worked out in the swimming pool. It was funny how you were still 9 months pregnant, too. And that Kenny worked out with you on his shoulders. And that you needed to borrow some of Mckenzi's size 3 diapers. Lola must be a really fat newborn to need size 3's already. But she looked awfully small!

Dreams are the best. I feel like I've already met her! She's beautiful. And you guys are glowing!

You guys are all so beautiful! I want to know how your labor went? So do tell..

You will soon find out that she will have you wrapped around your little finger (although it looks like she already is :) ) and you will see that all you have to blog about is how much you love and cherish her. But HEY they are only this age once, and soon you will have all the time in the world to blog about boring stuff again. Plus mommy blogs are much more interesting once you become a mommy :)

Three things:
First: She's frickin' beautiful!
Second: I love that picture of your mom.
Third: That last picture is beyond radical!

Nicole Wright said...

I like to think that, somehow, I had a part in her awesome hair. I recall a prophecy at a baby shower of yours . . .

You are so welcome.

She is beautiful.

Kristina said...

she is BEAUTIFUL. seriously. not a freaky looking new born at all.

Kat Clark said...

There ain't nothin wrong with pink but those leggings are soooooo RAD! She is precious. I wanna hear the story when you get a chance. Did you go natural or take the drugs? Rough and tough or a few pushes and done? Congratulations 100 times over.

She is way cute. I can't believe you waited to find out the gender. I would die by now from the anticipation. But I do not approve of those gold pants. She will resent you one day for that picture. But it still is funny.

Jill & Kenny,
So happy for you guys! She's just beautiful!
