sisters, vol 1

My, what sweet girls these two are! I know it is so clique to say, but I love to see their bond forming. If there love for each other now is any indication of the future, these two will be the best of friends. Since before Kennedy was born, Ruby Kay loved babies and was so excited to have one in our family. Since her arrival Ruby Kay just loves Kennedy. It is especially sweet to see Kennedy interact with her big sister as she gets older. Although she is still young, she smiles and watches Ruby Kay so intently.

This afternoon, Ruby Kay followed me around the house with her baby doll copying whatever I did with her "Baby Kennedy" as she called her. She swaddled her baby, rocked her to sleep, changed her diaper, and even nursed her baby! What a sweetheart. I can hardly wait to see these two as time goes on.

a daddy's love

We are now back from the beach, and settling into life here at home. We had a great 2.5 weeks in at the beach in Florida.We really enjoyed taking our class with Cru and learning more about our Christian theology, and the God we serve. Working for a company that values our personal spiritual growth is so great!

One of my favorite parts of our vacation was taking a step back to watch how Ben loves our girls. The past few months have been hectic with travelling for work and the holidays, so our time in Daytona was a good time to slow down and enjoy time together as a family. After all, we are still adjusting to being a family of four. Ben took Ruby Kay down to the beach every day that it was warm enough, and would play with her for hours. She absolutely loved spending time with her Daddy. Ben also got a lot of "Kennedy time" since we both took the class and each needed time to study. I am so grateful for Ben and his love for our girls. They are lucky to have such a great Daddy!
