Siena: Weeks 1 - 3

Week 1

We felt so blessed to bring Siena home from the hospital.  The kids were really excited for Mommy and Daddy to come home with their new baby sister.  The doctors were worried about her being jaundice, so we were able to come home as long as we promised to bring her to the doctor the next day.  Her first week was a blur of doctor and at-home nurse visits.  She did have to be put under the biliblanket for 2 days but her jaundice went away by the end of her first week and we had our healthy baby girl.

McKenna was super excited to hold her sister when we got home! (2 days  old)

Mason welcomed her home by letting her play with his NHL hockey puck!  Wow, he must really love her!  (2 days old)

Grandma and Pa Pa Winter came to visit and brought dinner!  (3 days old)

Sooooo sleepy!  3 days old
McKenna feeding the baby one of her first bottles of breast milk.  Both did great!  4 days old

Week 2

Week 2 started out with Halloween (see pics in the last post).  We didn't take Siena trick-or-treating but did take her to Grandma Winter's house for her famous Haunted Garage.  Mommy and Siena stayed inside and visited with neighbors.  Siena is still very sleepy this week.  In fact, she is super hard to keep awake at all (probably side effects of Jaundice).  She is a really good baby and has the sweetest, quietest cry!

Oh so sleepy!

She barely opens her eyes, even when she is hungary!

Week 3
She is finally starting to stay awake for an hour here and there.    She is still doing well at night, waking about every 3 hours and then quickly going back to sleep.  This week we were out and about often because when you have other children, it's tough to be locked away in the house!  Both kids are helping as often as they can.  Mason likes to go and get clean diapers and McKenna likes to hold the baby and is quick with a pacifier if she starts to fuss!  Daddy likes to cuddle up and sleep with her or tease her by giving her his nose to suck on if he is hungry.

Mason's friend, Regan.  Her family came and got the big kids so that  Mommy and Daddy could have some alone time with the baby!  That was the greatest gift ever!
