Crown Molding!

Some of you might have been to my house in the past 2 years and thought to yourselves, something seems to be missing from Amy and Bill's remodeled kitchen, well there was.... for TWO YEARS!!! It was the crown molding!!

Don't get me wrong Bill (and Keith) did a great job in the kitchen but the incompletness grows drive a wife batty, not so much the first year but certainly the second year.

A big thanks to my friend Samantha for sending Mike (the crown molding guy) into my life, I am forever changed!!

Adjusting Well

Ava is in love with her baby sister. Sometimes she loves a little too hard, but all and all Ava is adjusting very well to Vivian. Things are going great at the Kilcoyne home. Bill is off from work so it is great having him around everyday. We really miss him when he is at work.

Vivian is a very good baby. She is just eating, sleeping, and pooping.

Happy Birthday Vivian!!

After a long induction due to low fluid levels, Vivian Grace Kilcoyne entered this world at 11:15 am on June 8, 2008. She is a little peanut since I was only a little over 37 weeks when I was induced. She weighed 5lbs 12oz. The induction was a long and extremely frustrating process, but it finally worked.

Everyone is doing great. Ava is adjusting well. When we first got home she was a little out of sorts, but she is settling into place now. She loves kissing Vivian, and handing me things I drop for the baby.

My mom is in town until the weekend so she has been a big help watching Ava during my hospital stay and now helps with entertainment during the day. Bill is also home from work for a few weeks to spend time with us.

Our Spoiled Child

Life is good being Ava Kilcoyne. This weekend has been non-stop treats for her. First, Grandma sent her b-day present early and the boxes where huge and taking up way too much space in our garage that we had to put together the playhouse a bit earlier than her July 24th b-day. This weekend we also took Ava to a waterpark, which she loved!! When she woke up after her nap on Sunday she was surprised yet again by a new toy from mommy and daddy. Her first ATV. Thankfully she has no idea when her birthday is, and frankly we needed some new things around here to hold her interest a little longer for mommy. I am getting slower and bigger by the day.
