3 weeks old!

When Gwyneth was born they weighed her and said, 'oh', she already has a double chin!'
She turned 3 weeks old on Saturday. She is starting to stay awake a LITTLE more than she did last week! Maybe a few hours a day! She smiles more than before, I guess that's all a baby this little can do. but it's fun to watch her grow everyday. Her little legs are filling out, so she is losing the little Frog belly look. We just kiss and hold her all the time. She's getting a little spoiled, but I don't mind holding her all the time!

Three week old girl! Still no bow, sorry, the boys take them off!

Here's a bow in her hair! It lasted about 5 minutes.


My boys think my glasses are a toy. I guess they are if I let them be! Brady set the timer and took multiple shots of himself, which was fun to watch him do! He also took the one of Zachary. He didn't know they were on upside down!

Brady and I played with Gwyneth taking pictures! She didn't smile, but she's still pretty dang cute!

She even stuck out her tongue when Brady did, which makes for a funny shot!
She sure loves her bed, thanks to all the comfy blankets we received from friends.

One Week Old

Gwyneth is 8 days old today, and she's already done so many things! She had her first 1/2 sleep over! We let Brady hold her in bed for a while, He was SO happy!
She had her first story time, with bog brothers and Gramma. She was very interested in the book.

She slept 4 hours in a row....EVERY night.

And Gwyneth has learned how to make faces with the best of them! The funniest is when she tries to look up, both of her eyes point outward, the opposite of cross eyed, it's totally funny.
Brady and Zach are in love with this little sister! They come into our room in the morning looking for her, asking to hold her, and the kiss her constantly!
When Brady looks for her he says, "Where's our baby?", Zach says, "Where's my sister?"
Brady calls her Gwyneth, Zach calls her Gwyn.
They both can not believe how tiny she is. Some nicknames she has accumulated so far:
Tinker Bell, Peanut, Wynnie, and of course, Baby Sis.

Big Brothers

Sunday morning the boys came to see us. I put Gwyn in a cute little outfit so she'd be all ready! It didn't matter to her brothers. They think she's wonderful no matter what!
Zach was hyper with excitment! He kept looking at her and telling me all the tiny things she had.
" look at her finger nails! They're so tiny", " oh, look at her small ears!" those were the 2 he liked the most I guess!

Brady was very mellow with her. He kissed her, smiled at her and held her as long as he could. When it was time to leave he didn't want to!

Here they are holding her for the first time. Zachary couldn't wait for his turn. He kept leaning over and trying to hold her! He kissed her a lot!

Our 3 babies! We are so blessed!

Gwyneth Kate Sorenson

Baby Gwyneth was born at 7:05 a.m. on Saturday November 6, 2010. Weighing in at 7 lb. 4 oz., and 20 inches tall. She was the fastest of my 3 deliveries. From start (because they induced labor) to finish was 2 hours, 5 minutes! My doctor barely made it to the room in time!
I wrote the whole story in Gwyn's baby book, so this is the shorter version!
Daddy holding her for the first time, in our delivery room. He was so excited! We both couldn't believe that she was ours, this tiny little princess!

Here she is only a few minutes old, already happy, and looking around. She was in such a hurry to get here that mommies epiduryl didn't have time to set in all the way. But she was also nice enough that the speed made it do-able!

Gwyneth & Mommy's first photo op! She was so warm, and tiny!

Last Night

November 5, 2010. Last night as parents of only 2 kids! Grama Patti came from Utah to take care of us for a week, we went to dinner at Chipotle, and had ice cream for dessert. It was fun! After putting the boys to bed we tried to sleep, but couldn't. my mind was racing. Jeff and I were both super nervous, not only that, but we had a midnight check in at the hospital! I don't recommed it, but too late! Plans were made and I couldn't put it off, I was too excited! I had told the boys all day that the next morning I'd be gone to the hospital and that I'd bring home our baby sister. The last time was as I put them into bed. "I know mom! You told us already!" was Brady's reply!

5 Year Old

Brady had his 5 yr old check up this morning. He is 45.5 lbs. (85%) 45.75 inches tall (94%) he is the average size of a 6 year old. HA! He's been this size for about 4-6 months.
Brady hasn't cried at shots since his 18 month check up. He prides himself on that fact. So on the way to the Dr. I asked him if he'd rather have the flu mist. "NO, I want the shot", was his reply. He was all psyched up for it! Luckily he accepted the mist, only because he had to have 3 other shots! With each shot his eyes got wide as the needle went in, a little shocked look passed over his face, but that was it! On the last shot he said, "oh, that kinda hurt." So funny! He's such a trooper!
His 5th birthday was last Saturday. It was a great time. He had 6 friends over, a house with 8 boys, pretending to be Jedis' is a little crazy! Thank heaven for Jeff, he taught the boys "sick moves", did a tug-o-war, a pinata, and made dry ice rootbeer. I never could have done it alone!
That night we had cousins over for dinner and cake, then headed to the ward Trunk-r-Treat. It was a super busy day, but it was really fun! We all slept really well that night!
As an added bonus Jeff took the boys last night to get new fish. Two Oscars, and 4 goldfish (for them to eat!) We moved the tank into their room, so it also serves as a night light. Brady chose the name Chris for his fish. That has been his favorite name since he was 2. So of course Zach's fish is also named Chris!
After a great morning we are home, and they are fighting. Brady purposfully drives Zach crazy, so he screams. Which drives me crazy. Lovely.
