Wow! Its been a while since I posted on this blog. We have been just a tad busy in the Astley house with the arrival of Kaitlyn about a week and a half ago. Since her arrival I have found myself trying to be more patient with my boys and trying to find more time to spend with them, talking to them, listening to them, and doing things with them. Kaitlyn is a newborn and therefore requires A LOT of attention--the boys are 5 and almost 7 and are very independent. I don't want them to feel like Kaitlyn is getting more attention--I think THAT has been the hardest thing for me. Otherwise things are going great. The boys adore Kaitlyn and go on and on about how cute she is. They want to help her, hold her, touch her, and love on her. They truly are her biggest fans! I love watching them with her--how gentle and loving they are with her.
Jacob made a Thanksgiving dinner yesterday for us--every year we try to make a Thanksgiving dinner at home the day before Thanksgiving. We can spend Thanksgiving as a little family before we go spend it with the extended family. Jacob did a great job on the meal and we ended the day by watching Gremlins with the boys before they had to go to bed.
So, between school, therapies, bottles and dirty diapers we have been staying busy here. Here are a couple of pictures . . . until next time.
