First week of life!

Grady is the best baby...he sleeps almost 24 hours a day. He wakes up to eat and poop and that's about it. The kids are LOVING having him at home.

Trent and the rest of the kids really like to fee Grady a bottle...he does really well so I think we may do this about once a week so he is not completely dependent upon me!!!

Grady Dirk McMinn is Here

Grady Dirk McMinn in here! He was born on May 20, 2011 at 11:04 A.M. He weighed in at 8 lbs 11 oz and was 22 inches long. Both he and Amanda look great and are doing well. He looks just like Brock when he was born and I'm sure in a couple months he'll have just as much hair and be just as crazy.

Amanda is amazing! There's no way that I'd be able to do what she does. I'm sure neither of those comments come as a surprise to anyone though.

Brock wanted nothing to do with Grady right after he was born. Brock screamed and pushed Grady away ever time we tried to get him to hold Grady but he wanted to watch everything the nurses were doing to him. Today he made a huge step and gave Grady a hug but then he pushed him away.

Obviously, Camryn was the most excited one in the family about the new baby. She is 100% a mini version of Amanda. She really likes being the only girl, and for obvious reason.

Trent is the best big brother. Brock loves him and wants to do everything that he does so we're sure it will be the same with Grady.

Happy Easter!!!

I know it has been a while...but we are still alive! We had a great easter with friends and family. Steve did his best to get a good shot of them all together in their easter outfits (thanks Aunt Stephanie!). We hope you all had a great Easter.

Brock ALWAYS has a bat and a ball in his hands!!!

Happy Birthday Daddy!

Today was the big 3-0 for Steve. He insisted that he did not want a surprise party! I surprised him by NOT having a surprise birthday party!!! It was hard for me to do, but I resisted. It turned out to be a nice evening with just the family since my sister and her family weren't able to make it. We grilled steaks, had mashed potatoes, yellow cake with chocolate frosting (cake decorations provided by the kids=lots of sprinkles and m&ms!!!) and mint chocolate chip blue bell ice cream (Steve's favorite). As you can see, the kids were thrilled to be able to blow out Steve's candles for him. You are the best Dad and husband EVER...Happy Birthday Steve!!!

I don't think he will have ANY problem next week for his first birthday!!!
