7 weeks and a Check up

Kinsley had her 2 month check up today. Can you believe it, it has been almost 2 months...7 weeks to be exact. Everyday is truly a gift! She continues to develop very well. Yesterday she followed every step I made while I was getting cleaned up. I am not sure if it was me or the bright colored night gown, but for about 5 minutes straight she was intrigued. Of course I think it was me, either way I am so proud of my baby girl. She is cooing and smiling a lot more too! Today she weighed in at 9lbs. 11oz. that is almost an entire pound in 1 week. It amazes me how steady she is gaining. With that being said we do not go back for another month, but at that appt. we have to do a series of shots. Jason already said he will not be going to that appt., it breaks his heart knowing she will be in pain and there is nothing he can do. It does the same for me, but I guess being her mommy I will do what I have to do for her and just suck it up:)

I do need to mention...Gracie has been such a wonderful big sister. She is always there to do whatever, whenever. I know she knows how much I appreciate it, but someday she will really understand. Sometimes there are so many things that need to be done and she is always willing to help. She loves snugglin with sissy. Funny thing is she has a way of calming her that not even daddy can do. Of course us girls spend 90% of our day with her, daddy has to work, so our job is Kins! Anyways the bond the girls are developing is so special and I am so thankful that Gracie is the kind hearted little girl she is! I don't know how I got so lucky...I love you monkey!

I have a prayer request...My father in law was diagnosed with prostate cancer almost a year ago. He has undergone treatment and has been doing very well since diagnosed. A couple of days ago he woke up in excrusiating pain and ended up in the hospital for a couple of days. They ran several tests and found that the cancer is pushing on his bladder and is causing the excrusiating pain. We are not sure what the plan of action is at this point, hopefully we get answers on Monday. This has been another Acker battle and we know he can and will beat it, but I didn't figure a few extra prayers would hurt. If your interested check out his blog too!


Thanks!!! Hope everyone has a wonderful and safe 4th...

Glad to see Kin's is doing so well. It's funny that you mention Gracie being able to calm her like no one else. Our Emmy is the same way. Emmy is now 8 months old and from day one, her big sister Izzy is the only one who can make her laugh out loud. If Emmy is having a rough moment, all Izzy has to do is walk into her line of sight and she's as happy as ever.

It's amazing how sisters bond and how soon it happens. Happy 4th!
