4 weeks already!!

Wow, I can't believe it, today Kennedi turned 4 weeks old!! It makes me sad to think that she is getting older each day and much bigger. I want so bad for her to stay little forever but I know it can't happen. Chris went and got her foot prints from when she was born and we put her foot up to it. It is amazing how much bigger those tiny feet have gotten since the first day.

I just got home a little while ago from visiting Chris at work. We only stayed about 20 minutes but the reason I took her down there was to see how much she weighed. Of course I have to get her weighed at 4 weeks for her baby book (which I have yet to write in). She is steady gaining weight. Tonight she was 10lbs 5oz. She has gained 8oz in a week. That absolutely amazes me that she has gained so much because I see how much she spits up each time she eats. But she really is amazing.

Now for the boys.... Avery had his first football practice tonight. Much to my surprise, he was not the smallest boy on the team! Actually the majority of his team is his height or close to it. They may weigh a little more than him but its hard to be smaller when he is only about 65 pounds. There were a few that were much bigger than he is. I just hope that our team did not get all the small guys. I would hate to be going up against the big guys every week. Avery will keep me busy this fall with practice 3 days a week and then games on the 4th.

Conner has also started his football season. The middle school had a game last night and.. well... we lost. We are hoping that it was just the first game jitters and that next week we will have a better outcome. He, like Avery has football practice 3-4 days a week and then a game on the 5th.

Needless to say, Kennedi will get used to sitting at her brothers practices and games very quickly. So far she has been perfect and has slept through almost everything. The boys are waiting until the days they can hear her calling their names from the sidelines. She is going to be so proud of her big brothers.

I guess that is all for now. Kennedi is starting to stir in her crib.

I took a few pictures today for her 4 week birthday... enjoy them!!

Kennedi's 1st Auburn Game


Since yesterday was opening day for Auburn football and Chris and I have season tickets, we took Kennedi to Auburn for her 1st game. I have to say that I was nervous at first because of the crowd and I did not know how she would react to the loud noises (especially me screaming) but she did great! Most of the game she spent sleeping, even through the yelling of the fans. I on the other hand was more calm at that game than I think I have ever been in my life at a football game. I don't know if it was because she was there with me or if I just didn't think it was the most exciting game. Its hard to get excited when you are ahead the whole game and the other team (Louisiana Monroe) did not look too much better than a high school team. We bought her her first Auburn onsie (it was pink of course) and she had her Auburn hat that her Aunt Barbie bought her seconds after she was born (OK it was a few days after but seconds sounds like Kennedi is more of a fan). She looked so cute!! It was about a thousand degrees out and we were all burning up but she looked so cool in her outfit. I wish I could go around all day in a lightweight onsie without people looking at me like I have major issues.

Well, Kennedi is waking up from her nap so I guess my time on here is over. We go back to Auburn on Saturday for game #2 against Southern Mississippi (I hope this one is a little more exciting but I do not think it will be)....

Have a great Labor Day weekend!!

gotta love the band... I will have to get the best part of the band at next weeks game...
