How many Maki's does it take to give Keegan his first sponge bath? 3 if you live in our house! Keegan did not have as much fun as we did but he sure smelled good and looked adorable afterward! Magnolia has been so into helping with every little thing when it comes to Keegan. I dont think she has missed standing and watching a diaper get changed and loves to pick out his outfits!
Keegan came home from the hospital on Sunday. Magnolia had decided a long time ago that we should have a birthday party for the baby when it was born. When we heard that she was planning on having a pinata at the party we convinced her to wait until we got home from the hospital to have the party. I am pretty sure the hospital would not appreciate a pinata! Magnolia and my mom got party hats, blow horns, plates, napkins, made cupcakes and had a monkey pinata ready for when we walked in the door. Such a great big sister! She also had to take one for the team and hit the pinata and eat the candy in it for Keegan. :) Funny how that all worked out in her favor! All in all Keegan had a fantastic first birthday party!!
Do you think our kids look alike so far?! The first pic is of Magnolia coming home from the hospital and the second is of Keegan! Good thing Magnolia had a bow in her hair so that we wouldnt get them confused in the future!
With the warmest of hearts and pure joy in our voices we would like to introduce to you the newest addition to our family! Keegan Cooper Maki was born August 24th at 9:24 pm. He weighed in at 8 lbs 1 oz and is 21 inches long. He is a very healthy boy and is doing fantastic! He is absolutely the perfect addition to our family and we love him more than words can say! His big sister is doing amazing with him and is already such a little mother to him. She was SO excited to come to the hospital to meet her new little brother that she had to wear a beautiful dress! She brought him several gifts that she made and a very special soft duck that she picked out just for him. The two of them together are seriously the most adorable things I have ever seen. It bring tears to my eyes to see my 2 beautiful children together! I am truly the luckiest mom in the whole world!
We went camping this past weekend. Well, David and Magnolia went camping. I must admit that being 37 weeks pregnant and sleeping in a tent did not sound very exciting to me, so I came home to sleep and went back the next day. Magnolia had an absolute blast and did great! We went with our friends Scott and Will and another family that are friends with Scott. Magnolia's favorite things... sleeping in the tent, having a picnic and having a smore. Magnolia had a pretty posh set up for bedtime. She had her own room in the tent, a nice comfy mat under her sleeping bag, and even got to watch a movie before falling asleep. Really roughing it huh?! (almost as bad as her mom going back to her own house with air conditioning and a bed with comfy pillows!!) What a great weekend! We cant wait to do it again next summer!
There are many days where Magnolia walks around with a baby in her belly. I realized this week that I hadnt taken any pictures of it and pretty soon she wont be doing it anymore! So, here she is in all of her adorableness pretending that she is also has a baby in her belly.
