I finished her wall hanging before she was born (it was a product of my wonderful surprise shower) but I finally got the tabs sewn on the back so that I could hang it up in the nursery.
It seemed a little small for the wall that I was hanging it on, so I also hung a frame with photos of Kenley underneath.
Cleo was investigating what I was up to - This photo was taken after she returned home after being mysteriously missing outside for a week! We were so worried, since she is 15 years old, declawed and only weighs about 6 lbs. Luckily she showed up again, safe and sound. We wish that she could tell the story of her adventure!

Here's her one month photo. I took monthly photos of Lachlan in a chair with a special stuffed animal, so I thought it would be fun to do the same thing with her. Different chair, and a horse instead of a cow. :)
She's doing great - 9 lbs, 12 oz today, so she's obviously healthy and growing quickly (she was 8 lbs, 5 oz at birth). She sleeps very well at night, just waking 2 or 3 times to breastfeed. Big brother is doing great, too. He's talking more every day and we're amazed at his memory and how much he picks up from our daily conversations and activities. On the whole, he's been very sweet and gentle with "baby Ken" (as he calls her) with occasional moments of typical toddler jealousy.
We had a month of visits with family and friends who were excited to meet Kenley. Now I feel like I am starting to get into a "normal" life with two kids. Kenley is starting to come out of the newborn sleepiness and is more alert every day. Most days, I feel like if I get both kids taken care of, all the laundry and dishes done, and dinner made, then I have accomplished ALOT. I have missed creating things, sewing and scrapbooking, but I'm starting to make time to do some of that again. No matter how my day goes, I am so thankful that I get to spend my days with these two sweetie pies.
