One Month Old

Crazy how time flys by. I can't believe our little girl is already a month old. She is now 10lbs 12 oz- there's no denying that she eats well! Nights are still a struggle, at least for me it is. The last few nights she has been getting up every 2-3 hrs, which makes for a very long night... its a good thing she sleeps good thru the day so I can take a nap with Austin. She hasn't peeled at all like most newborns do, she has an outie for a belly button-which I think is way cute- she has baby acne really bad, has some very expressive faces, and she knows how to fill her diaper. Can you please explain to me how such a cute little girl can have such an explosion that poo goes up her back to the base of her neck! I mean she doesn't even use her diaper- just up and out it goes, every morning, no matter if she is laying down or on her belly! So for now I don't try and understand it... I just anticipate the poo mess!

Paislee's first day at church

I love feet pictures

"I'm done taking pictures mom, please just feed me!" Isn't her outfit cute!

Austin eating Yogurt! He's a big boy and insisted that he do it all him self! The end result.. a yogurt mustach.

His latest thing.... sitting in anything, no matter how tight a squeeze it is.

First nice day with warm weather...48 degrees! Austin loves being outside, so I bundled him up and while Paislee was asleep we went out for a while. Austin on the four wheeler, helping Dallas with chores.

Since the snow is melting, our driveway is full of puddles and mud.
Water + mud = very wet and dirty boys! So it was off to the tubby after running through the puddles that were up to his ankles. He went inside screaming because he wasn't ready to go in. It didn't matter that he was freezing, soaking and covered in mud!

After a long day, no nap and energy spent out side... he slept through dinner! We all hear the stories of kids falling asleep while eating their dinner, and I couldn't wait till that precious moment happened to one of my kids. Then it did. One moment he was wide awake showing no sign of stopping, then I turn around to heat something up in the microwave. By the time I turned around he was out cold. He stayed asleep for about 20 minutes before he kind of woke up asking for a bottle! Dallas and I were laughing so hard.

This tub usually has all his toys in it. Lately, he dumps it out , pulls it closer to the couch, crawls in and watches tv with us.

How our days go....

Mom gets me all dressed and cute...

Then this thing they call my brother has to come and help feed me...

But at least he gives me kisses in between whacks!

Then mom thinks Austin needs a head band... Dad wasn't too excited, good thing mom got a picture first...

Waiting for dinner dad and Austin share some grapes...

Austin helps mom make peanut butter cookies for dessert.

Then the big wind down before bed... get all the extra energy out. Dallas and Austin love to wrestle, so almost every night the two of them duke it out for about an hour. Mainly it is Austin climbing all over Dallas ... We have been watching alot of bull riding lately, so Austin thinks Dallas is a bull. It is so funny so watch Austin climb on Dallas and then try to ride him like a bull, hand up all! Its amazing how observant kids are... at any age.

Life is getting easier: Thank goodness. As bedtime rolls around each night, I just pray that Austin will sleep through the night and not be woken up by his sister, and that I will get more than 3hours of sleep! ( man I miss sleep) The last few nights have been great. Austin is usually in bed around 8:30 - 9pm , Paislee isn't that far behind him. She has only gotten up a couple of times just to eat and then fall right back asleep. My ears are quickly adjusting to new baby sounds and I'm not so paranoid about every sound she makes. I'm getting around a lot easier also. It's hard not to be able to play with Austin, as in run around and wrestle with him. I can't even pick him up, which is even harder. But at least we are starting to get back on a schedule... at least most days!

I'm just so stinkin cute. 7 days old.

Mommy and Austin time: Playing bubbles.

One of Austin's favorite things to do. He runs

to the cupboard with the bubbles in it and will

yell bubbles at up until you come. Bubbles even

in the tubby... lots of fun!

Yeah... Bubbles!!

pretty in pink .. and look at those cute shoes!

First tubby

Austin was jumping off his fire truck.. little show off!

Well Dallas went back to work today and I don't know how he did it. Last night was a very long night for our little family. Austin woke up first around midnight, I got up and sat next to his crib patting his back. Then 20 minutes later Paislee woke up, which then re-awoke Austin, so Dallas took Austin and I went into the front room with miss Paislee. From then on Paislee thought she had to nurse every 40 minutes for the next 3 hours, while Austin was in and out of it. It was about 4am when I finally went to sleep on the couch with Paislee in the swinger when Dallas came out to fill up Austin's bottle, which told me Austin was still being a pill. By 6 Dallas was out the door on his way to work... poor daddy. He has been such a trooper since I've been in the hospital and now at home. He has totally taken over night duty with Austin, so thanks hunny!

All ready to go

After we got her in her car seat she immediately pulled her hands up... she reminded me of a little dog standing on its hind legs! (but she is much cuter than a doggie)

Getting Paislee into her first outfit

Welcome home little sister
