Everly at 5 Months

Oh Miss Everly! You are 5 months old.

You are probably the most smiley baby I have ever seen. You have this big mouth and when you smile it is probably the most precious thing ever!

You are obsessed with Ashlyn. You start kicking your legs, smiling and making noises whenever you see her. You also love your brother but you definitely favor Ashlyn. 
You are a Mama's girl but give Daddy huge smiles.

You have gotten a lot better with being fussy and miserable when you eat. We had to change your formula again and you are now on Nutramigen. You are quite the expensive girl but whatever makes you happy and not miserable is what we will do!

You still don't sleep through the night, you are up 3 times but we lowered the ounces for each bottle so I am hoping we can slowly knock those bottles out. You were down to two but you went back up so we never know if we can officially cut any out. 
You had your first night in your crib and did really well. I think we can get rid of your Rock N' Play

At your 4 month appointment you were 13.4 lbs and 25 inches. You wear 3-6 and 6 months clothes and are in size 2 diapers. You drink 4-5 ounce bottles about every 3 hours. You are close to sitting up and I swear you did two little scoots towards me in an army crawl but it didn't happen again so we will just wait on that milestone! 
You love to play in your jumperoo which is nice since you aren't the biggest fan of the bouncer. 
Your personality is very interesting. You are super sweet and smiley but then get pissed out of nowhere. Once you are done, you are done! You are very sensitive which is very similar to how I was as a baby (what my mom always told me) and I can see how you are a lot like me. It's funny how personalities are so obvious so young. I can see it with each of you and you definitely give us a run for our money! We love you and can't wait to see what next month brings!!

Ashlyn's Adoption Finalization!


This past weekend we celebrated Ashlyn's adoption finalization.

We finalized her adoption on Wednesday and celebrated with family on Sunday.
It was so weird for it to finally be finalized. We have had to do so much to get to this point that it seemed so simple in that moment.

Our attorney called us on FaceTime and we were able to see the judge (we finalized in California but didn't have to fly out for the hearing) and we had Ashlyn on our laps so she could be apart of it.

It took a total of 10 minutes and we were done. So simple.
It was 12 months and 12 days since we found out about our little princess and decided to adopt her. 
12 months and 12 days since we knew we would be a family of 5 and had no idea what all that would entail.

I still think back on that day and how everything came together. We are so blessed to have her in our lives and getting to be her parents is the most incredible experience. She is the sweetest baby and we imagine our lives without her. 
She sure enjoyed her cake to celebrate officially becoming a Kania!
