Britten 7 weeks






God you are amazing! As I sit here and stare at my daughter, I can only give credit to our Heavenly Father and thank her birth mom “C.” The past 7 weeks have been crazy needless to say. We have been busy with work, getting the house somewhat organized and trying to fall into a routine. We are almost there and Britten is doing better with sleep and her daily routine. She recently came down with a cold bug and is a little more fussy than usual with congestion, but we’ll get it under control very soon! She is growing so fast and is already up to 9 lbs 10 oz! Her hair is growing so fast too! She is becoming more interactive and loves to have you talk to her. She just listens and watches every move you make and smiles all the time! Her nursery is almost finished and soon to be organized. We are ready for that project to be over with! We can’t believe we’ll be taking her in for her 2-month appointment in a couple of weeks! Time really does fly when you vault into parenthood! I have been blessed with the opportunity to stay at home for the first 6 weeks of school! I got my classroom ready and went to the first day of school to make sure everything was organized and ready for the sub. I explained to the kids what was going on and why. Some of them were very curious and still a little confused! They’re very funny because they’re so transparent! Hopefully I’ll get this updated a little more regularly, but no guarantees! ;-) Until then…
Love and Blessings,
Kara, Jason and Britten

Britten






Here are more pictures we have taken since being home from OKC. I am so far behind trying to keep up with everything....Please be patient. I am trying hard to learn all of this multi-tasking stuff!~ Life has been crazy but in a good way and I would not trade it for anything in the world. We are working on getting days and nights straight and trying to make Britten stay up more in the day. This has been the biggest challenge. Any ideas or hints as to make this a success. Thank you for all your calls, cards, gifts, food, prayers, love and support during this very special time with Miss Britten. It is hard to believe that she will be a month in 5 days!!
Love and Blessings,
Kara, Jason, and Britten
