More pictures, including the blessing

Mayan is doing well. She still has some congestion and a cough, but is eating and sleeping pretty well. She is still a pretty easy-going baby. She is very patient and rarely cries. She is already obsessed with her daddy. She looks for him whenever she hears his voice and loves to stare at him. She will hold her head in the most awkward position to watch him.
Lily is slowly adapting to being a big sister. She adores Mayan, but is a little bitter towards me. She struggles with me not being able to get up and get her whatever she wants whenever she wants it. She often says "you don't need to nurse Mayan right now" or tells me to put her in the swing. She is finally over her sinus infection, so she is less grumpy now.
Yesterday was Mayan's baby blessing. We did it at our house (it was our stake conference) We only invited a few friends and some family in an attempt to keep the germs away. My mom got Mayan a beautiful dress and made her an adorable headband. Mayan kept herself happy during the blessing by watching Seth.
Today is my first day home with both girls. It has been raining all day. At about 1045 Seth called to tell me he wasn't working today ( because of the rain) He was at Walmart getting his oil changed and asked me to meet him there. I hurried and dressed myself and the girls and got to Walmart in about 40 minutes. When I walked up to Seth he was on the phone with his boss, who was calling him back to work to clean up a fallen tree branch. We got him for about an hour while the oil got changed and then he went back to work, where he remains now.
Sorry this post is so random, between Mayan's Sleep Apnea monitor sending off false alarms all night and her RSV (and just being a newborn in general) I didn't get much sleep. Here are a few pictures.

Lily meets Mayan

Lily was talking so much when we came home with Mayan today that I had to take a video. She already loves her little sister too much (especially since she has a cold) Mayan is doing well. She took awhile to latch on, but is now nursing like a champ. She is very easy going so far, easy to soothe and very curious when she is awake. She already reminds me of Lily in so many ways. For those of you who don't know, she was born february 9th at 7:27. She weighed 6 pounds 12 ounces (sorry if you heard 6 11- that was my fault) She is 19 inches long. Her hair is pitch black and her eyes are a dark green/blue. My labor was fairly easy, but that is another story for another day. Here is the video and a couple of pictures. I couldn't believe how long her nails were when she was born, even though she was small this shows me she was a full term baby.

A few lily words and phrases

I thought I'd do a quick post about all the cute things Lily says. She has a very large vocabulary and says some things in a cutest ways.
Here are a few words that I love she uses.
supermarket (I have no idea where this one came from but she said it when we were walking into the asian supermarket)

when she's hungry she likes to say that her "tummy is pretty hungry" and she loves to say foods are "pretty juicy" She knows all of her fruits including some that most people have never tried. (she can thank her daddy for that one)

Everything is "six". It was my favorite number as a kid and apparently it is hers too.

When we ask her how old any of her grandparents are she replys "eighty" (she can thank her daddy for that one too)

She gets mad when we call her nicknames. She says "my name's not _____ its Lily!" Sometimes she will agree that her name is "Lily Monster"

she loves the idea of being a big sister. She talks to my tummy and has recently started yelling at mayan to "come out" She constantly talks about Mayan using her swing, double stroller etc...

Everything baby is "double" double crib, double swing, double carseat... it all started when we got the double stroller in dec.

She makes everything into a song. She sings about taking a bath, watering her flowers, being a big sister... anything she can think of becomes a song.

That's all I can think of right now, but she makes me laugh every day. She is so animated and creative. I Love it. She is also really enjoying having her Granny here right now. Life is good.
