Sisterly Love

Growing up, i've always wanted a little sister. I have two brothers and when it came down to it, I was always the one that was picked on. Sometimes it would be me and my older brother picking on our younger brother... but most of the time it would be me who was the victim. As much as I love my brothers, I'm sure having a sister would have been a ton of fun. But oh well, I was stuck being the only girl.

I'm actually happy with the outcome of having two girls. Something i've always wanted and now I'm able to give Sadie and Kenzie that experience of having a sister. Sadie has been such an awesome big sister. She always wants to hold her saying, "hugs hugs hugs" (that's her way of saying "I want to hold Kenzie"). And it melts my heart when I see her trying to comfort Mckenzie. When Mckenzie is crying, she'll ask me for her soother so she can put it in Mckenzie's mouth. And if that doesn't work, she'll pat Mckenzie saying "it's ok".

Mornings are the funniest. Mckenzie and I will be sitting on the couch (sometimes with Mike with us as well), and when Sadie wakes up, she'll come downstairs and walk towards us pointing at Mckenzie and say, "mommy, who's that?". I'll say, "it's Mckenzie." her response will be "right, Kenzie.... awwwe cuuuuute" lol Mike and I laugh everytime she does it.

I was so worried about how Sadie would act not being the baby in the house anymore but she has honestly been great. She has her days where she isn't pleasant to be with, but she's only young - she's slowly understanding.

I love my girls so much and i'm so thankful to have them in my life. I am excited to see them grow.

Mckenzie Angela Donahue

It's been a while since my last post... but she's here!

Mckenzie Angela Donahue is her name and she was born May 21st, 2011 at 10:34 a.m. Weighing at 8 lbs 1 oz and measuring 20 inches long.

1 Month later, she is doing great! She is more attentive now, always looking at everything around her. I love her so much, I've forgotten how small babies are. I'm excited to watch her grow.
