One Month Old!!

It seems like only yesterday that I was so DONE with being pregnant and couldn't wait to have this little baby in my arms...and now she's already ONE MONTH OLD!! My how time flies when you're exhausted as all get out, changing diapers until they come out of your ears, dealing with temper tantrums from our toddler...oh yeah, and having fun!!! For reals...despite all the other stuff that comes with having a newborn in the house again, it really has been fun. Payton is such a joy to have. She's a good baby...still sleeping and eating the majority of the time. She likes to be held (who wouldn't, really???!!), which means she sleeps on me or Kevin some of the time, but she is starting to enjoy longer stretches (sometimes 4 hours) of shut eye in her bassinet! Baby steps, baby steps!!
A couple of weeks ago, two of my wonderful and talented friends offered to take pictures of Payton (and some of Alexa too). Click here to check out Amanda's pictures and here to check out Rachael's pictures. You may have to scroll down through a few posts to find the ones of my girls.
Thank you ladies for sharing your wonderful talents with us!!
And since Amanda gave me a CD with the rest of the pictures on it today, here are a few more of my favorites:
Payton has her one month check-up on Monday so stay tuned for updates on her stats!!

A Match Made in Heaven???

My good friend, Gwinn, and I had our babies on the same day, different hospital, only 6 hours apart. Her little guy, Blake, made an appearance later the same day after Payton joined our family. Here is a picture of their first date! :-) Who knows what the future will hold for these two???!!!
