I just wanted to let you all know that on August 1st we will be blessing our sweet Aubree. It is at the church closest to our home, you can't miss it. It is at 9am (sorry ha ha) and we will be having lunch at our house at about 12:15ish afterwards. We would love for you to come and celebrate our sweet new one with us on this special day.

Aubree's first photo shoot!!

I love this pic. Mandie showed me this one before Aubree was even born, I couldn't wait to do it. It turned out absolutely perfect!!!
Steven loves his new little girl!!

I love this pic, Kenzie wants to kiss her constantly, I'm so grateful she is adjusting so well. What a blessing.
Our new bundle of joy!!!
I'm so lucky!!!
Then new Cook fam
WE love her!!!

So when Aubree was 4 days old, my friend Mandie, took some pics of her and the fam. She is absolutely amazing. She did so many great pics for us. I'm grateful for her and how talented she is!!! She truly is a blessing. This is just a few of the great pics she got, I would be on my computer uploading all day if I put them all up, but these are some of my favorites.

Just to let everyone know how we're doing. We are great, besides exhausted and overwhelmed at times, but I hear this is normal right... ha ha. Aubree is a great baby, she eats and sleeps like a champ and is very laid back. She really doesn't cry that much. She's been such a blessing. Kenzie is adjusting well. She loves to "see siser" and "where's siser" all the time. She wants to hold her and kiss and love her all the time, which I'm grateful for. She's my big helper with throwing the diapers away, getting things for me, and to sit and talk to Aubree while I'm making the bed or something. She's been so awesome. She's a little more emotional lately, but I think that's just her trying to figure out how she feels about all of this. I think after a couple of weeks, she won't remember how life even was before we had Aubree and we'll just go on with our crazy but awesome life. I'm doing well, v-backs are much better than c-sections that's for sure. The recovery time is absolutely shorter. I have actually been able to sleep in my bed and do so much more this time, it's amazing. Breastfeeding has also been very different, not so painful and Aubree is a champ, which I am insurmountably grateful for, since with Kenzie it was soooooo hard!!! Thank you for all the calls and emails from our friends and family. We feel so loved and supported. We are very grateful for you all.
