6 lbs 14 oz, 19" long

She is so sweet. She wins the award for the best baby in the Swenson household. She is calm and peaceful and sleeps so well. If she were our first baby, you wouldn't even know she was here most of the time. However, she does have one downfall. (A big one for me.) She refuses to nurse. So, that means lots of time on my part spent pumping, and lots of sweet Daddy time when he feeds her. I am really hoping that she will learn soon. I love that special time spent quietly nursing my kids. She is such a Daddy's girl, which pleases Tyler so much. Whenever he is holding her and she hears his voice, she tilts her head up and gazes at him with her big beautiful eyes.

The girls love to hold her and feed her. They run into my room when they hear her waking from a nap to be next to her. Things have not transitioned as easily as it did when we brought Kaci home. There have been hurt feelings and squabbles among the older sisters. Kaci is having a hard time not having my attention all day long. I am sure that before long, everyone will realize their special place in the family again and life will run smoother. I don't know how I would have done this without my Mom and Tyler's parents being here. They have helped in so many ways. I am feeling panicked about how fast Tuesday is coming when my Mom leaves. I am not sure how I am going to do it all.

Life seemed to stand still when Shanna was born. It slowed down when Kaci came, but this time I feel like the merry-go-round of life keeps spinning. I wish it would slow down and stop for a while. However, I do feel so blessed. I have the most amazing husband ever and I love the life we have built together. I never thought I would have three daughters. They are each so beautiful and special to me.
