Our Newest Arival!!

We've had a baby, shout hooray!! Maya Renea Lopez was born last Thursday, August 20th at 1:14 PM. She was 8 lbs 1 oz and 21 inches long. She's a beauty!! She's got lot's of black hair and she's full of smiles already! Sorry I don't have any pictures on, but I'll get them on just as soon as I figure out how :P So far she's been about as perfect as a baby can be!! She's been sleeping 5 or 6 hours at night, eating, then sleeping for 4 or 5 more!! It's been wonderful!! She's also very talented at pooping as we change her diaper. Happens almost every single time. Anyway, I'll get some pictures up soon, don't worry!!

Yesterday we were driving around (all needed out of the house) and James and I got us some food. Ethan and Aleena had just eaten so we were just sharing fries with them. Two seconds after I would give them fries they'd both start repeating "more, more" like the seagulls on Finding Nemo "mine, mine"... Yeah that gets old REAL quick. James said, "Oh my gosh! Kids, just be quiet!!" And our dear Aleena's response was, "Hey, I'm not a kid! I'm 3 yews ode!! Just leave me alone!!" The rest of the way home Ethan just kept saying, "Dude!!" over and over again.

This morning I was getting breakfast for the kids and I THOUGHT they were both in their seats waiting for it. Then Aleena said, "Hey Mom, I'm holding Maya!!" Talk about a near death by heart attack experience!! I ran into the livingroom and, I'm not really sure how, Aleena was walking around with Maya cradled in her arms!!! AAAHHHH!!!!!! As soon as I had Maya out of Aleena's arms, Aleena started sobbing, "I just wanna hold my sistow!! I wanna hold Maya Wenay!!" Ethan and Aleena are both very good siblings to Maya and they want to hold her and help any way they can.
