We can't get enough of Gwyneth!

Gunnar finally started calling our baby "Gwyneth" instead of "Baby LULU." It doesn't happen everytime but at least there is progress! What a rough road this child has had with a name! She is totally a Gwyneth now! We don't see much of a change in her but I am sure that is because we see her everyday. Maybe she will look older to everyone else. I hope not because I am hanging on to everyday of her newbornhood with every ounce of strength I have! There is nothing like the smell, the squeaks, the quick breaths, and all of the other little things you slowly forget as your baby gets older. I don't want to forget this time! In other Tidwell news, Gunnar has an ear infection, and Grace told us that she would rather be a millionaire than a genius because then she could hire people to tell everyone that she was a genius. This girl is so funny with her money! Her $2 foot massages are a dream come true though! She is going to take me to the poorhouse!

Oh what a beautiful morning!

......the corn is as high as an elephant's eye! The kids have been working very hard on keeping and watering a garden this year and their efforts are definitely paying off! Get ready because this post is GREEN!

Here are some pictures of our beautiful little Gwyneth Lillian! She has been so fun and wonderful! The kids cannot get enough of her. Gunnar walks around making up songs about how much he loves his baby sister. I can always count on Grace to sit and hold her hand for an hour at a time. Little Gwynne has just been an angel and is hardly ever laying by herself. I am afraid she is going to be a bit spoiled but we just can't help it. We cannot get enough of this little girl!!
She was 7 pounds 5 ounces when she was born. She left the hospital at 6 lb. 13 oz. after a little bout with jaundice. At her 2 week visit she was already back up to 7 lb. 11 oz. so she is already taking after the other kids and their crazy growth spurts! One thing that is different about Gwynne is that she has blonde hair. We will see if it stays that way! I cannot thank everyone enough for all the help that has been offered! Our ward is amazing! We have literally had dinner brought to us for 2 weeks and as many of you mothers know, that is priceless! So thank you thank you thank you!
