Not the best image,

but you know we didn't have those nifty digital cameras back then.

Eleven days old

Of course she is 17 days old now...but we've been busy. I'll try and get some new pictures. At her one week check-up she had gotten back up to her birth weight. She was only in the 10th percentile (which, again, is a change for us- our kids are usually off the chart) but we expect she'll be fine. We just adore her!

enchilada love...

I love Tex-Mex food! I mean I could eat it all the time and never tire of it. And our children seem to enjoy it also, Chloe already eats chips and salsa and loves beans. Here is a really good recipe for veggie enchiladas and the sauce tastes great on beef enchiladas too. Very simple and tasty.

Mr. Matthew

Matthew is a sweet boy who loves soccer, his new baby sister, and meat.
During the Christmas break we took a family drive to Enchanted Rock and upon seeing some roaming cattle Jacob began singing a delightful song about cows. "Cows are so soft and nice", etc. Matthew added to the song: "cows, tasty cows". Not a month later upon receiving an extra strip of pork with his dinner, he holds the meat up with his fork and proclaims, "Behold, the meat" and devours it. I love that when i talk to him on the phone he smacks his lips as if to blow a kiss. he really has a sweet heart.

Big sister

So far, so good...

Can you see a resemblance?



Hey baby!

Well, this pregnancy has proven to be different from the rest in many ways, but namely that I had such a tiny baby. Camille Marie Toussant weighed in at 6 pounds, 14 ounces and was 19 inches long. She is great and we are so relieved that there were no complications with her coming at 35 weeks (though the pediatrician thinks she was more like 36 weeks).
