The First Few Weeks

We are adjusting well to our new lifestyle! It's definitely busy around the house, but we enjoy every minute and love having people over to visit. Caroline has met a lot of friends and family.
Will loves Caroline and is jealous of other people holding her! He is staying busy watching home videos and taking vacations with Grandpa and Grandma Heller (he is in Chicago visiting the Rauchs and Uncle David). It's nice spending time with Caroline, but we miss William!!

Last week, I took the kids to the salon. This wasn't Will's first trip, but it was fun to bring a girl in!!! Caroline had more fun than Will : )

Back at home with our new hair cuts!

We made our way with the Barcels to Syracuse for Tony's graduation party! Will loved the golf cart and playing outside.

On May 18th we celebrated with Seth and Emily at Evangeline's baptism. Seth and Emily will be Caroline's Godparents.

Grandpa Mike stops by frequently to say hello : )

Introducing Caroline Jean Gutz

It's a GIRL : )
On April 26th at 10:54 pm, Caroline Jean Gutz was born at Methodist Hospital in Omaha. She weighed 7 lb 5 oz and was 20 inches long. Thank you for all of our visitors and gifts. Now we have a healthy baby girl and a healthy little boy!! I'm looking forward to staying home until mid-August!!! It's going to be a fun summer!

One cute story- My parents were watching William during our stay at the hospital. By the time we picked him up, he had mastered the song "Sweet Caroline." If you start singing, "Sweet Caroline" . . . he will say "bomp, bomp, bom" It is adorable! Sometimes you can hear him call her "bomp, bomp, bom" instead of "baby." When we were at church he also was bobbing his head and singing "bomp, bomp, bom" when the organ was playing. He is quite the entertainer.

Here are a few pics:
Dr. Scott is amazing! We love her : )

Our Family

We're going to get big brother, William! She doesn't know what she's getting herself into!!

At home with dad, I was trying to get a good picture of her red hair : )

My two babies: Will is busy texting, while Caroline sleeps in the "wee." Will's trying to convince us that he can go in the "wee." He loves going to the park and he calls anything at the park a "wee." So we are pretty mean because we tell Will that the swing is only for the baby.

Will gets a little jealous when you hold Caroline too long. But not because he wants you to hold him, he gets mad because he wants to hold her!! Caroline doesn't mind Will always bothering her or touching her : ) They are both so much fun!
