First Walk

Ok, the girls are quick learners, but not that quick. Just to clarify, we went for our first walk as a family pushing the stroller today. The weather was idyllic- sunny and warm for a February Seattle day and we had a great time. Kirsten felt strong and the fresh air was really nice while the girls seemed to miss most of the excitement and slept right through it. They also got to meet their big sister Lucy (our dog) for the first time today. Lucy is very nervous about most things in life so we expected her to avoid the babies entirely. She's been staying with friends and came home this afternoon, and she actually took to Annabelle and Katherine quite nicely. She didn't lick them or anything, but she didn't run away either. I think she'll become pretty protective of them once she realizes she's their big sister. Our sleep schedule is wacky, but having Kirsten's mom here is a huge help. Today we both felt semi-normal and had a really nice day. Dad even got out for a couple of short runs. I like looking at photos of the girls more than I like reading my writing, so here are some more of those;


  1. So glad y'all got out for a walk in this wonderful weather! Give Kath our love... so glad she can be there with you. I LOVE seeing Kirsten's radiant smile!

  2. Yay for the girls and yay for Lucy! She's going to love those girls so much. I'm so happy to see that you two are doing well. You will remain in my thoughts and prayers.
    Love and miss you tons!

  3. Looks like a solid walk! Two questions: 1) First picture - I assume the little one was gesturing following the Saints' pick-6 in the superbowl? 2) Did you guys also bring home a large dog from the hospital? In case you haven't noticed it, it's right by Kirsten's feet. I have not seen this canine before...
