The hospital

I'm finally getting around to posting pictures of Zane's arrival! The hospital I had him at was great - They call it "Spa Ridge". I would agree with this on all accounts barring the food menu - it was a bit sketchy. I ordered a salad, which I found out upon receiving was pre-made ..... 2 days earlier! And was later told from an employee when I didn't eat it - "You should keep it for later, it's says its still good till tomorrow." No Thank you. :)

The twins loved coming to see the baby and thought it was great that they could sit and pick from a list of movies to watch in the room. It made the visit much more enjoyable for all party's involved. Friends and family came by to visit our new little man. We are so grateful to everyone that took the time to come see us.

Poor Zane went through the wringer during delivery.... and looked it. Niles commented that he looked like Burgess Meredith and furthered stated "I had to pretend that he was cute. Did you too?" As all the swelling, bumps and double cone headed-ness have gone away, we are happy and relieved to say he no longer resembles Rocky's coach.

Fun with 3

Everyone keeps asking me how I'm handling having 3 children. They don't believe me when I tell them how great it's going! It's been such a smooth transition. The twins are amazing little helpers and Zane couldn't be a better baby. The kid is already sleeping 7-8 hours a night! We are having so much fun with our three kiddos!

Little Zane : 2 weeks

My super-talented friend, Tamara, took Zane's newborn pictures. She is a genius with a camera lens - especially since Zane was intent on showing off his "package" throughout the photo shoot. Capturing his cute little body - minus certain parts- was a major undertaking. Thanks Tam!

Christmas 2010

This year we enjoyed a fun Christmas with the Krainik side. We spent all free time eating and gaming - After hours of practice, my brothers are now quite proficient Settlers of Catan players. They may even beat me one day. :) The twins had so much fun playing with their cousins. London and Keslie loved playing with their American girl kitchen sets and Soren spent hours with his legos and DS games - which involved some very nice quality time with his dad. It was a wonderful Christmas.

Week 4: Hudson Gardens

On week 4 of our Christmas excursions, Auntie Eve went with us to see the lights at Hudson Gardens. It was super fun and SUPER FREEZING! We opted for the horse drawn sleigh ride instead of walking everywhere - worth every penny. MInus the frigid temperatures, we had a wonderful time!

Week 3: The Nutcracker Ballet

The boys were excluded from "Christmas fun" week 3 this year. London and I went to see The Nutcracker with our friends. She loved it! - and reminded more than once during the performance that she needed new ballet shoes. I think she was having dreams of being a prima ballerina the entire time. So glad we went. Next year I think we should bring the boys.
