Just Grayson

He looks like.... well you tell me. He's just a cute little boy. He is very good. He took his first big trip to Fresno and then he went to Barstow with me to look for a house. For those who don't know yet, we're movin to Barstow!!! Yes I'm excited about it, but we've decided to live in Helendale. It's a little drive, not bad, and half way between Barstow and Victorville.

Anyway about Grayson, he sleeps pretty good so far. He does get up every 2 hours or so to eat and poops like a champ! That's about all he can do right now. We'll keep you updated!

Tea party

Kathy bought the girls this Disney princess tea set for when we got home from the hospital. She tried teaching them to hold their pinky up while pretending to drink. I didn't think Kennedy was listening, but the next day she brought me a tea cup and told me to take a drink with my pinky up! So cute!

Pennie's birthday was the day before Thanksgiving so we celebrated with banana cake.

The next morning she went digging for her other gifts. Her sister and brother-in-law got her a bag of rocks!!! Here my dad and Kennedy are showing how you dump them in the bucket of water to separate the heavy and lighter rocks...

Then you pick through the left overs to find sapphires! I just went out to take pictures, but it looked like so much fun. So now you know... the next time you don't know what present to buy for someone, just give them a bag of rocks! :)

Grayson Wood Pollock

So we changed the name a few days ago, but what's having a baby without throwing a curve ball at people once in a while. He came out at 1:49am Saturday, Novmber 10th. I had to be induced, but once they hooked me up he started coming. Guess he just needed a "jump start".

I am a HUGE fan of epidurals and anything else that gets rid of any type of pain, thus the big smile. Kathy took me into the hospital and Dad and Pennie were not far behind. Now I couldn't believe it, but my dad was there for the whole birth!!! He usually doesn't even come in the door of the hospital. He's turned over a new leaf in his new married life! That or Pennie threatened him with his life :)

Dr. Klis got to deliver Grayson. The delivery went something like this, "Ok push... ok stop!" That's as long as my pushings last, but this guy came out a true cowboy with his lasso wrapped around his neck. He was totally blue and purple, but Dr. Klis and the nurses got him breathing quickly and then the cries and the nice pink skin. What a relief to hear him cry nice and loud.

Here we are hours later. Grayson let us sleep for a good 2 hours or so and then off and on in the morning. What a good boy.

And he is sooo cute. One of these days he'll open his eyes!

9 Days over due

Thanks Khristie for the totally cute pumpkins!!! I got home from the Dr.'s office yesterday VERY upset that I was told the night before that I would most likely have the baby Thursday morning. Well it's Friday and still no baby. I wouldn't mind so much if the Dr. would've just told me out right "look, you're not having the baby until you are at least 10 days over." No instead everyday this week I've been told maybe tomorrow or probably tomorrow. Don't tease hormonal pregnant ladies!!! The truth is what we want to know!!! Anyway back to these cute pumpkins, they were waiting for me when I got home from the dr. MacKenzie can't hold enough at one time :)

Here we have Kennedy helping with the dishes. She is very good at taste testing all cupcake and cookie dough before it goes in the oven. Heaven forbid we give out treats that do not meet her standards!
