Blessing Day

Sunday was Izabelle's blessing. She looked beautiful and Justin did an amazing job with the blessing. We all love her so much and are so grateful for the friends and family that were able to make it out in the snowy weather!

I love her dress and was so happy to find the one I wanted!

She was absolutely perfect!

Dyllan loves his sister

Our happy family of 5! That still sounds weird to me.

I hear Hi-Ya all day long in our house.

They looked so sharp in their suits! They play Power Rangers all the time. If anyone comes over, they get to play whether they want to or not.

My unhappy but very handsome little man
Thanks for coming early to take pictures Dad

Our Halloween & a Couple Extras

Our cute boys getting our Pumpkins at Schmidt's pumpkin patch.

Dyllan was so excited to do it by himself. I think he had the cleanest pumpkin.

The boys were so good at helping Dad clean out all the seeds.

The Power Rangers showing me some sweet moves.

Trick or treating at Grandma & Grandpa's

Dyllan's Peyton's

Izabelle's & Mom's Dad's (if you can't tell)

Clearance Halloween costumes make great dress ups! Thanks Grandpa!

The cutest construction workers I have ever seen.

Like I've said before, Peyton loves to wear my shoes. He's so stinkin cute!

2 Weeks!

Izabelle is already two weeks old! She had her appt. today and is doing great. She had to have her umbilical cord frozen for the second time but other than that she has grown an inch and weighs 6 lbs. 6.5 oz. which is great since she was down to 5lbs 11 oz. last week. She is such a quiet peaceful baby. We love her to pieces! Her brothers want to hold her and kiss her all day and so do her mom and dad. She is such an easy baby! Dyllan & Peyton are adjusting really well. They wrestle and play together all day and are SO LOUD!!! It starts to drive Justin & I kind of crazy but it doesn't bother Izabelle, she doesn't even budge. I think she must have gotten used to their yelling before she was born. Here are a few pictures from the past few days.

She has always had a double chin and some cheeks. I think that is where all of her weight is.

She really gets kissed all day long!

We are loving her!!

Izabelle Daphne Ford

Izabelle was born on Tuesday at 5:39. We went in in the morning and got hooked up on the pit and IV's. I got to a 6 pretty quick and then stopped for a few hours because she was posterior and didn't want to turn. I flipped from side to side trying to get her to move, but she waited until she was good and ready to turn and once she did she came right away. Everything went really well and she was 6lbs 4 oz. 19.5 inches long. She has a ton of dark hair, none of the pictures really show it, but it is down her neck and over her ears, it is so cute. I hope she doesn't lose it all. With all of the new rules we had 1-2 visitors at a time that night, then Justin went home to sleep with the boys. He came back in the morning to spend the day with me & Izabelle until we could be discharged. We went to get the boys from my parents so they could meet their sister and we could all go home. It has been an adjustment the past few days, but the boys adore her and have done really well. We are hoping she won't have anymore jaundice problems after tomorrow's appointment and we can get rid of the lights and not have any other extra Dr. appts. We have had lots of great help from the family. I think the boys are loving that they get to do fun things while I sit at home with the baby. Justin has been fantastic, he has been putting the boys to bed and helping out with everything. We are so happy that UPS is over!! Things are great and we are loving having Izabelle in our family. She is perfect!

Dyllan loves his baby sister, he just can't quite get her name right. I think he was hooked on Cinderella so he calls her Izabella. One day he'll drop the A.

I never thought I would love having a girl so much!

Dyllan meeting his new sister for the first time. He was so excited and just wanted to hold her. Peyton was asleep, so he didn't meet her until later when we got home.

We were getting pretty bored waiting for discharge on Wednesday so Justin & Izabelle took a snooze.

All dressed and ready to go home!

She definitely has a high pitched girly scream.

Our beautiful little girl!

Just after her bath, a couple hours old.

Brand new meeting mom

She took her sweet time turning so I got a good nap in.
