Little Punkin

I left the house for the first time in 2 days today. The sun hurt my eyes, wow, that was telling! I went shopping and got some cute jeans that make me feel skinny, for 17 dollars, total score:) Then I came home to dress my baby up in her cute little Halloween outfit. I give her 2 hours until she has a blowout and we have to change her. We are just hanging out here and watching a movie, either Jurassic Park or Nightmare before Christmas, since we want to watch a scary movie, but not too scary;)

The hat is a little big

So I folded it up a bit

The socks are too big

So I put them on her hands so she wouldn't scratch her face:)

One Week Old

I am one week old today. My dad loves to take care of me and does a good job:)

I love my bath tub from Aunt Corinne

Despite how it looks I really do like to get my hair washed:)

All is well...except that my appliances hate me.

Sydney had her one week dr. visit today. She is doing great:) She has dropped to 6 lbs 2 oz but the dr. says that is okay as long as she gets back to her birth weight by next week. She had her first real poopy diaper last night. Neil and I can't believe how excited we got about poop:) My mom has been here all week and it has been so great! We are so excited for Neils mom and sister to come next week for a visit!

Moving on... I was sitting on the couch today and all of a sudden water started pouring out of the ceiling ahhhhh! I ran upstairs and turned off the washer and got some towels. Luckily Neil came home 10 minutes later. He moved the washer and figured out that the drain hose had come off the bottom part of the washer. We got it cleaned up and he went back to work. Then I got out the vacuum to vacuum the main room and it's not working, ahhh! Luckily my mom came home and she knows how to fix it, go mom! Syd slept on the couch the whole time, good girl. :)

We saw the prophet at the pumpkin walk!

Hello world! I am five days old now. I like living in Logan. Yesterday my mom took me to the pumpkin walk. I am glad that we went because today it is snowing. My mom is not too sad because she says we can just stay inside all day and look out the window at the snow.

Thanks for the hat cousin Robbie! It is kind of big, but I still looked cute:)

Here is me and my mom at the park, she is happy to have a real baby in her stroller now, and not just a hot water bottle. I think she is kind of weird to do that in the first place...

I was all snugly in the stroller

We saw Michael Jackson

My mom says she kind of feels like this piggy

And look! We saw the prophet:)

Neils favorite new pass time

A nice walk with my cousins

I love my bow, but it is still a little big.

Gracie likes it too!

Here she is coming home from the hospital

We gave her a little bath and she looked around the whole time

She pretty much has the longest toes we have ever seen

Gracie- April, Randy-June, Sydney-October

Randy is so tall! They are going to be best friends one day:)

Sydney's first bath

Here is a little video of Sydney having her first bath:)

One day old:)

Sydney is one day old. She is so fun, I can't wait to get her home and play dress up!
I am going to be posting lots of pictures of her for our family members who live far away and won't get to meet her for awhile.

She has a lot of dark hair

Thanks for the cute hat Grandma Sherry!

Here I am at 38 weeks.

Any time now baby....

This morning we went for a walk up the canyon. It was so beautiful and pristine....then we saw this lovely sign. Gross.

Still it was a nice way to spend a Saturday morning:)
