A Long Overdue Update

As pointed out to me this weekend by a good friend I have been a bad blogger. I know this. There are so many days that I think about getting on but then something comes up and I forget all about it until I am half asleep and by that point I am way too tired to get up and begin. (Believe me....with a 7 week old sleep is a necessity!) So this brings me with so much to catch up on that I am not sure where to begin.......

Karsyn is such a great baby! I really enjoy spending my days with her and watching her grown and learn new things daily. Coming home from the hospital was quite an experience. The day that we were discharged there were more than 30 other couples going home with their newborns that day! It was a very busy weekend on the L&D floor at Plano Presby. By the time that we got home it was around 3pm and we were happily greeted by my mom, brother, Christa, Kara and Karlee. The girls had been making WELCOME HOME KARSYN signs all day and my mom had been busy cleaning and even mowed our yard! (I know....I have the greatest mom EVER!) Our stork sign was proudly displayed in the front yard for the whole neighborhood to see that we had welcomed our new baby girl into our lives. Here is a picture of our new family by our stork.

From there the weeks flew by! Jeromy was home with us for the first week and then my mom took a week off of work to stay with me and help me with Karsyn and household things. It is such a blessing to have such a wonderful mom and a pretty great hubby too. :) On Memorial Day we went to Jeromy's dad's house to celebrate with the whole family. They were thrilled to have the newest addition there and we were surprised by the news that there would soon be another new addition to the growing Boulet grandkids! Jeromy's sister, Brandi and her husband, Todd will be welcoming a 4th baby sometime in late December! Karsyn will love having a cousin so close in age!

With the kids being out of school for the summer we have been enjoying going to the pool and hanging out with friends. Karsyn went swimming for the first time on June 18th. She LOVED the water! I only put her in for a few minutes each time we are down there but she seems to enjoy every second and usually falls asleep for quite some time after getting out.

2 weeks ago we discovered that Karsyn has a minor case of acid reflux. The was spitting up every time after she ate. At the dr's office she weighed in at 8lbs. 13oz. I am happy that she is gaining the appropriate amount of weight but I was sad that the dr. said that her crying after eating was due to heart burn. SO SAD! A mother never wants her child to be in pain.

Yesterday we celebrated the 4th of July and Karsyn loved being outside. She sleeps well with lots of noise so she did just perfectly. Here are some pictures of our little family on the 4th!
Well....I know this update isn't very detailed but I just wanted to do a quick catch up and I promise that I will try to update at least once a week from now on!
