Tylers 2 wk pics

My sweet friend from church Alicia Hale has a photography business. She came over and took pictures for us. Here are a few she gave me for the blog. Thanks Alicia, we love them!

The Girls Christmas Program

They are in there somewhere. This is all of the 3k, 4k, and 5k classes at their school.
Tatum with her class.

Ashlyn with her class.
Tyler was 1 1/2 weeks old at their program. For those of you that are thinking it, yes i went and so did Tyler. He was tightly in the sling, so noone could touch him, but i have figured out that we just have to keep on going. There is no slowing down when you have a 3 and 4 year old. They did so great singing.
Great job girls. We love you so much!

The First 2 weeks home

The first 2 weeks home were such a blur for me. I was so exhausted and still very swollen. It hurt to walk from the c-section and the swelling. My feet were so huge they wouldn't even fit into crocks... Luckily the girls were still in school, so that was a great help. Once my mom would pick them up, I would either feed Tyler again, or go straight to sleep. I think atleast every other night we went out driving to look at Christmas lights. I couldn't drive for 2 weeks and for me that was the worst torture ever! For those of you that know me well, you know i am not a home body. All these people that told me the third one just falls right into place.... I am not sure what they were on when they were telling me that, but not the case here. It has been much more of an adjustment for me to have 3 than to have 2. Maybe that is because Tatum was only 17 months old when Ashlyn was born, I dont know... but this sure seems harder.

Our first night home

We had a good first night home. He woke up 2 times during the night. I slept in the recliner since it was easier for me to get up and down from. The girls did great with him being at home. Josh was still off on Friday, so it was nice to have him here. We had to take Tyler in Friday to our doctor for a weight check. He was still at 7.14

Hospital Pictures

Here are a few pictures from the hospital of Tyler. We were there for 4 days. When we left on Thursday Dec 4th, he weighed 7lbs 14oz. We were ready to get home and see the girls, but i was nervous at the same time.
