Just a quick update. And a promise. The promise first. We promise we won't just blog about Mckinley from here on out. Of course right now, there isn't much else going on except hanging out with her, but in the future, we promise we will blog about other stuff as well.

And now the update. The last 4 days at home with this little angel have been heaven. We cannot get enough of her. She is so sweet and has been a good baby so far.

A couple things she likes to do: sleep in our bed with us. The little stinker knows how to get her way. But we've only had her in there for an hour or two at a time, not the whole night ever. She also likes to pee when we take her diaper off. Once it squirted up on to Brandon's hand.

A couple things she doesn't like to do: be bathed. Have her diaper changed. Get her clothes changed. We try to make those things happen quickly.

Here's me and Bran on Monday morning getting ready to take her to her doctor check up. Everything looked well and she weighed in at 7 lbs 6 oz.

She's had lots of awake time and it is so fun to be with her and watch her look around at everything. She is so stinking cute. These pictures don't do her justice. (so if you haven't come over to visit, come on by!)

Here's a picture from this morning. Man, we just love her.
PS. Her middle name is May. A couple people have asked so I guess I never wrote that down anywhere.

Oh she is adorable and if this doesn't do her justice then I better come and snuggle her for you. You look so great and happy too.
