We're Glad Summer Is Here!!!

We are so excited that the summer weather has come in TX. We've enjoyed the warm weather this past week. We tried to put up the pool that was left with the house, but it was up on Saturday and down on Sunday. Unfortunately it leaks badly, so back to our little plastic pool that also has 3 bad holes in it. It will hold water long enough for the girls to play.


Peyton started smiling at 3 weeks, although she was smiling in her sleep since she was born. We haven't been able to capture it until this past week. So here she is smiling at 5 weeks. Oh and the picture with all the bears just cracked the girls and I up. Enjoy!!!!!!!

Sleeping is going pretty good. She almost always goes at least 3 hours and usually goes between 4 & 5 hours. It is so nice to only have one to handle during the middle of the night. She has pooped on me one night, so I have been reminded what life is like with a newborn. Up until yesterday I would have told you she is a super easy baby, but yesterday and today she has spent most of her awake time crying. If the paci isn't in her mouth then she is probably crying and someone is trying to get the paci back into her mouth. The good news is that Cameron & Taylor both enjoy doing this task.

I'm hoping tomorrow will bring a new day and my happy Peyton back to me. Dustin would tell you she always cries a lot, but that is because she likes her mommy most. As she should!!!! She is ok about naps during the day. She sleeps best when she is swaddled. So pretty much every time it is time for a nap I swaddle her up. She will take a nap pretty much anywhere and has adjusted to the noise of the girls. The only downside is that she takes more catnaps then full naps. I think I remember the girls being the same way for a while.

We have a picture of Peyton in the same outfit we had for the girls. Tell me what you think. Do they all look alike to you? I forgot how skinny the girls were. At they're 2 week appointment they weighed 5lbs. 9 oz. & 6 lbs. Peyton weighed 9 lbs. when I took her the other day. Once again another difference in having only 1.

Here are our sweet girls. Cameron & Taylor are doing pretty good with Peyton. They love her and Taylor especially wants to hold her all the time.
