Moving to Florida

In case you haven't heard the Indiana Kenningtons will now be the Florida Kenningtons. We are moving to Florida! Jeff got a jog at Heartware in Miami Lakes. It is near Fort Lauderdale. We are excited about our new adventure. Austin is ecstatic about living near the beach and having a pool to go swimming in. We will be renting for a bit until we get a feel for the area and find a house we want to buy. Our apartment has a community pool. Jeff's brother Conrad and Mom are coming to help us move. They will also get to see Bennett's blessing this Sunday. It may be awhile before I post more pictures of the kids. We've been a little busy :)

Bennett weighed 8 pounds 5 oz at his 2 week check up. He is doing well and I am completely smitten :)

First Bath

We gave Bennett his first bath the day after we brought him home from the hospital. He didn't enjoy it very much but I loved washing all his hair :) Austin was a good little helper. He got all the supplies before we got started and he handed me things I needed. He also tried to console Bennett during the bath.

On the way home from visiting us in the hospital Austin and my Mom got to see the helicopter at the hospital. Austin was really excited and the medic was really nice to him. They even let him walk around inside and sit in the seats. He still talks about it.

Bringing Bennett Home

We were very eager to leave the hospital and get home. We missed Austin and we were ready to settle into a routine. Austin was very happy to have us home. I wanted him to wear the beautiful hat Laurel made for him but once we got outside we realized it was 90 degrees. It was also storming. There were tornadoes and severe thunder storms. We beat the storm home and we were lucky to not have any tornadoes in our county.

He is doing very well with Bennett. He likes to help change his diaper and brings him his binkis. Bennett doesn't really take a binki. He also always sneezes after he is done nursing. We got him to nurse every two hours now instead of every hour. Last night between nursing he slept in his bassinet. He is already almost back to his birth weight.  Everything is going well.

Brothers First Meeting

I apologize for being behind on my blogging. I've been a little busy :) My Mom watched Austin for us while we were in the hospital. The day after Bennett was born she brought Austin to the hospital to meet him. Austin was very good about it. He patted my belly after he saw him and said "Bennett's empty". We got Austin a train and told him it was from Bennett. He tried to share the train with him but he wasn't interested. It offended Austin a little but he had fun holding him. He loves to kiss him and hold him and when Bennett cries he tries to sooth him. I love my little boys!

My Mom got him this shirt. He looked so handsome!
