24 Hours with Shelly

When I found out my younger sister, Shelly, was going to Salt Lake for a wedding I decided she might as well come up to Rexburg. She did. It was such a treat for her to come! Colton loved having someone else to chase him around and Paxton loved having her to cuddle with. We enjoyed Super Mario for the Wii, muddy buddies, and G's dairy ice cream and of course Shelly's hysterical company. She could only stay for 24 hours (literally) but we loved every minute of it. Come back soon Shelly!

One Month!

Our sweet Paxton is now one month old! Here is his four week picture from Tuesday. I added the pictures from each of his one week birthdays so you can see how much his tan has faded (he had to be on special lights because he was jaundice) and how much his cheeks have grown!

Four weeks, right out of the bath. Look at those curls!

Sleep is for the weak.

Let me give you a run down of our Wednesday night/Thursday morning....

11pm I give Paxton his last feeding of the night expecting him to sleep five hours like he has done the last few nights.

2:20 am Paxton wakes up and I'm mad I'm up after just three hours. Parker comes to bed after getting off work at 1am and finishing up some homework.

2:30am Colton starts screaming like we have never heard him scream before. Parker gets up to check on him and reports he is running a fever.

2:45am I finish feeding Paxton, puts him back in the pac'n'play and heads out to take Colton's temperature which read 102 out of his armpit.

3:00am I call the pediatrician because I have never dealt with a fever before. She tells me to give him Tylenol and Motrin because his fever is on the high side. I don't have any Motrin, she said the gas station is open 24 hours.

3:10am I leave for the gas station because Colton is clinging to Parker. I open the garage door to find myself heading out into blizzard like conditions. I freeze the whole way to the gas station because I didn't have time to wait for the car to warm up.

4am Get Colton settled back down to sleep.

4:10am Parker and I crawl back into bed.

6am Paxton wakes up needing to be fed. He takes a VERY large feeding.

6:08 am Paxton starts dry heaving.

6:09am Paxton succeeds at throwing up, ALL OVER ME.

6:09am and 1 second Parker flies out of bed because he thinks breast milk is foul and he doesn't want a single drop on him.

6:10am Parker helps me clean up both Paxton and myself (we both needed a full change of clothes).

6:15am We all get settled back to bed.

8:15am Paxton wakes up because he is starving.

Last night was awesome.

Professional Pictures

Esther, a gal in my ward, took some fabulous pictures of Paxton this last Tuesday. I think she did a marvelous job! Here are my favorites:

3 Weeks

These pictures are from Tuesday, his true three week birthday. I can't believe how big his cheeks are getting!

We got some serious snow a few days ago so Colton and I went outside for some play time. He loved sitting in the snow and hitting snow balls out of my hands. I'm just happy he gets some energy out because he has kind of been on house arrest with the new baby.
