Macey Jo's newborn pics!!

Just wanted to give a huge thank you to Stacey Palmer for doing Macey Jo's newborn pictures!! We fell in love with them especially the one of Payton and Macey Jo together! Just wanted to post a few of my favorites!!

Ok well maybe I posted more than a few!! I can't help it. I really don't think I will be able to choose a favorite!!!

Just a look back..

I was just laying down with Macey Jo this morning and started looking through older pictures of Payton when she was young!! It seems like forever ago when she was just learning how to sit up and when she really smiled and laughed at you!! She was such a cutie pie. It really got me thinking about what Macey Jo will look like. Will she look just like her big sister? I also started to realize that Macey Jo will be Payton's age in a blink of an eye. I want to remember everything about Macey Jo as a baby because I am not sure of I will have another one!! Of course I would love one more but eventually I will have to talk my husband into it! I started thinking that this might be my last baby. :( So i am trying my best to sit back and enjoy every minute of my two girls!! I hope you enjoy the pictures because I sure did!!

Beautiful blue eyed beauty!! (Payton at 4 months)
Landon and Payton best friends now, but future lovers later!!!
Soon it will be Macey Jo and Brooklyn= BFF
Payton on her first day of school! (Payton 7 months)
I mean look at that sweet face. It really makes me realize that time sure does fly! I can't believe this little 6 month old is now a 2 year old big sister!!

I love you Payton with all my heart!!

Macey Jo's 1st trip.

This past weekend we went to Blytheville, AR to visit my grandmother and aunts. They haven't seen Macey Jo yet so we took a family trip for the night. Macey Jo did sucha great job riding down their and back. Blair and Aylin came too so Payton had a fun time with them. I only took two pictures while down their. I find it very hard sometimes to get pictures because I usually have Macey Jo in my arms!

Grandma great with babies!
Hope everyone had a great weekend!

My girls at 2 weeks

I was looking through pictures and I was trying to figure out if my 2 girls looked a like as babies. I can see similarities between the two, but then I will look again and they look nothing alike!! So I figured I would put two pictures together and let you tell me!!

In these two pictures they look nothing alike to me!! Well of course they have the same eyes, but Macey Jo definitely has a fuller face.

Just some fun pictures~

Just wanted to post a few pictures that I have.

Macey Jo wide eyed. Probably looking at my camera saying mom... would you please get that thing out of my face!!

Our attempt to get a family photo captured!! haha i guess our family photos will never be easy again!!!

My sweet Payton being a wonderful big sister.
If I get anything new out Payton has to be right there making sure Macey Jo knows what to do.

I told Macey Jo she needed to lay on her tummy and have tummy time with her big sister. I think she was trying to tell me off here!! Oh well... at least I have one girl listening to me at the moment!!

A day at the park!

Today was a beautiful day with lots of sunshine and and great temps!! We decided to go to the park and have a picnic. Payton had a blast because Tessa and her friend played with her on the playground. After that Payton and her daddy played soccer out in the open grass. I was so glad Payton was able to have a wonderful day that was pretty much all about her. She loved all the attention and laughing and playing!!! Macey Jo enjoyed the park on terms...... by sleeping!! She is a very good baby and I am so thankful for fun and healthy kids!!!

Playing soccer with daddy!! She had so much fun and received so many new boo boo's. I guess that means she plays real hard!!!

Macey Jo sleeping through the beautiful day at the park!!

Sick.... We are all sick!

So the day we brought Macey Jo home from the hospital Payton had been coughing and sneezing due to the yucky weather we have been having!! When we got home from the hospital Payton was running a 102 fever. So to my luck she was clingy and I had to do everything to keep her off of Macey Jo. So we had hand sanitizer in every room and kleenex on every table.

Then to our dismay Richard starts getting sick like Payton. He never did run a high fever but he coughed non stop. So we had to buy mask so Richard could help out with Macey Jo. Tessa and Payton got a hold of the mask and had a fun time playing with them.

Then wouldn't you know I get sick with the same thing plus a high fever like Payton had. Thank goodness my mom was here with us that week because she and Tessa helped out a lot. So we have all been on antibiotics and now we are all feeling better!! Thankfully Macey Jo has stayed healthy and hopefully she will stay that way!!

Macey Jo's original due date!

Today is Macey Jo's original's due date!! I can't believe she had been here already a full week. Time sure does fly by when you are very busy. Macey Jo is doing great, she is a great sleeper unlike her big sister. She does projectile vomit just like her big sister!!

Just wanted to post a sweet picture of my girl's in their matching pj's.

Early this afternoon we gave Macey Jo her first bath. She hated it obviously by the picture!! Oh well it sure was fun and she sure did smell like a lavender baby!!

Here is a picture of Macey Jo in her bath robe. She looks too darn cute in it!! Thank you so much Pop Pop for picking this out.
We love it!!!

Macey Jo's 1st Doctor's Visit!

We had to venture to the doctor this morning for Macey Jo's 1st check-up. We had to go within 3-4 days after discharge, so nothing was wrong, it was just doctor's orders. It was a wonderful visit. Macey Jo did great and looked great. Her weight was 7# 15 ounces. Dr. Larkin was okay with the weight loss, but he did want us back for her 2 week check-up to do another weight to make sure she was gaining.

After her doctor's appointment we went home and had a very restful afternoon!! Hope everyone is doing well.!

Macey Jo's here!!

We went to the doctor this morning for my 39 week check. Macey Jo's heartrate was good around 145; I was dilated to 4 cm and Macey Jo was head down. So Dr. Todd broke my water in the office so I could go and have a baby. They kept trying to put me on the induction list for that day, but I was on the waiting list. So we decided to break my water so they would have to admit me. 

I left Dr. Todd's office an headed straight to the hospital. I finally got checked into my room, which by the way was the last room they had available, thank goodness. I was having contractions but they weren't too bad. Around 1100, they got my IV started and started my fluids and my pitocin. I have had contractions while on pit and I really didn't want to feel those again, so I requested my epidural. I got my epidural and I had pain relief in a matter of 10 minutes. It was wonderful. 
(Here is all of us before Macey Jo arrived. Payton went to school that day to keep her routine.)

She checked me around 1200 and I was 5 cm, still had no pain and was feeling good. Richard left to go eat lunch and my family started coming around and visiting. She checked me again at 100 and I was 8 cm.I couldn't believe I was already that far. Right after she checked me I instantly started feeling pressure. I kept that quiet for a little bit and then around 120 I started to feel like I needed to push. I paged my nurse and she checked me and I was ready to go. 

By the time Dr. Todd arrived I was really ready to get the show on the road. With 1 contraction and three pushes my beautiful 8 pound 9 ounces baby girl entered the world at 1:57 p.m. and she looked great. She looked and sounded just like Payton did. I couldn't quite believe the resemblance between them. I really couldn't believe she weighed as much as she did. I felt the entire pregnancy that was smaller then when I was pregnant with Payton.

Then an hour later my first born showed up and was very overwhelmed. She just wanted to be with me, then she noticed a baby. She walked over to Tessa, who was holding Macey Jo, and just looked at her. She really didn't know what to think!!  We had a wonderful time visiting with family and friends and we are so thankful our family is happy and healthy.

We love you Macey Jo!!

Payton's Day

We decided it would be so much fun if we spent our last day together as a family of 3. We woke up went to eat breakfast at Cafe Eclectic, which was wonderful. Then we made our way to the zoo. It was pretty nice out so we went early to beat the crowd. We had an awesome time at the zoo. Payton ran around the entire time. We ended up renting a stroller because we left ours at home. And I think the entire time spent at the zoo, Barney was the one occupant in the stroller. Then we went and had Mexcian food for lunch. I think I was trying to get myself to go into labor. Then of course it was nap time.

During Payton and Richard's nap I went to get my toenails done. You know you have to have prety toes before you deliver a baby!! Can I just say that the pedicure was WONDERFUL. He massaged my legs and my feet for about 30 minutes. I think he knew i was thoroughly enjoying myself.

When I got home doodle bug was awake so we left and met Cameron, Rachel, and Landon man at Yogurt Mountain. We had a good time chatting together and for Payton and Landon to have some time hanging out together, because you know they are going to get married one day!! After Yogurt we went home and hung out together the rest of the afternoon!! I think Payton had a great day with us and I hope she is just has excited as we are to be welcoming our little Macey Jo into the world tomorrow!!
