Kael's Blessing

We had Kael's blessing on Saturday Feb 23 at our house.  It was amazing and I'm so glad that all of our family could be there to share that special moment with us.  Here are some pictures from the event:

I know this is a little late but on Feb 15 it had been 8 years since we left for China.  It was an amazing adventure involving eating foods that still to this day I have no idea what it was, traveling and seeing some amazing places, touching stranger's arm as they pass by, seeing some of the most disgusting bathrooms in my life, hiking 3 miles of stairs at the Yellow Mountains.  It was an amazing adventure that I will never forget and I hope that one day I can go back with my family.

This is most of the group that went to china on the Great Wall

2 months

Kael is two months now (well a little older then two months).  He smiles a ton now and is starting to laugh a little.  He is starting to notice the TV and will watch Declan and I when we move around the room.  He is drooling a ton and likes to suck on his fist.  He wants to eat all the time and is getting huge.  He  weighed 12.6 lbs at his two week appointment and a week later when we weighed him he weighed 13.8 lbs.  He was 24.5 inches long at his appt.  He sleeps 3 or 4 hours at night and then wakes up to eat and then sleeps another 2 or 3 hours after that.  Here are some pictures that were taken recently.

Pictures of Kael

I said in my last post from forever ago that I would post some pictures of Kael. Here are some pictures that my sis-in-law took when I think he was two weeks old. I also included a few pictures from his birth.
