6 Weeks

Today Pey had her 6 week check up. She is still WAY off the charts!  She is 26.5 in. in length and Weighs 10 lbs and 5oz.  She was a punk the whole time... I guess she had a right to be. She was a sleep when we got there and so I had to undress her so they could weigh her, so she woke up cold and starving. She only wanted food, her binky was not good enough to tide her over. I breast feed, but in situations like this I give her a bottle and well just so happens I forgot the formula. I also can't find my cover and I wasn't about to breastfeed in public. Public being my Doctor and nurse, but still.  Then our Doctor checked her vitals and stuff, her eye has been watering, I was worried she was getting sick. She is not just a clogged duct so I have to put pressure just below it a few times a day. Also he said for her skin and cradle cap to use Dove soap every other day and if that doesn't do it then there are medicines he can give her.  Then came the worst part. SHOTS. Sadly daddy…

One year older and wiser too, Happy Birthday to you!

"25... I never thought I'd be 25. I feel so old." -MWH
Silly boy you're not old. You don't look old and you certainly don't act old.
The day for Mike at about 8:00 started off with me nudging him saying go get Pey, it's your turn. I was up with her all night. If I had remembered it was his birthday I would have got up, but momma was dead tired.
I gave Mike one of his presents at midnight and made him wait till we woke up for the rest. Which included: Lots of Coke, Lots of Cheese and Lots of Clothes. His favorite of the presents I think is the Big Al Jefferson Jersey that you will see in the pics to come. Hard to say though because if you know this man you know his love for Coke and Cheese.

We went to Biaggi at the Gateway Mall in SLC. It was scrumtruelecent (a Mike word). We were off to the Jazz game with Papa and Mimi. Always a great time with the Halls! The Jazz won which I think was icing on the cake for Mikey.

Now for the mushy gushy stuff.

I came home late and found these two, so cute!

Fun and Busy Week!

This past week was a busy one and you won't hear me complaining! I have to admit when P is sleeping I get bored. It's nice to get out, i'm not use to being home all day and it's going to take some time to get use to being a stay at home mom. I need a hobby!
Anyway now back to the fun week full of excitement.
Brothers Hockey game! They were down by 1 and pulled the goalie to tie it! Amazing.

 Mimi (grandma Hall) got P a present and she loves it and so do her parents!

Dad's Take on Peyton's Grand Entrance to the World

The past month has been an incredible one for Nikki and I. We have been oh so blessed to bring our new daughter into this crazy world, but more importantly into our beautiful 'little family'.

Nikki's pregnancy was not the easiest one for her. She put up with every kind of pain I could ever have imagined and never complained once. She is truly the strongest person I know. That is why I love her and am keeping her all to myself! Mine!

We were nervous as to how everything would go when delivery time came. My biggest nightmare was that it would all go down on a blustery cold night, with me driving through the snow with Nikki screaming about how she could see the head. Luckily we it did not happen like that. Not at all.

We went to the hospital the early in the morning of December 19th. Once we got there we checked in and were ready to commence. Nikki donned her exquisitely sexy hospital gown and I took up residence in my rocking chair. After nearly killing Nikki while inserting…

2 Weeks!

On Friday December 31 we had her 2 week check up. P weighs 8lbs 15oz. She is 22.5 inc. in length.
This is the face she makes usually when she is done eating. So cute!

PTH is now 2 weeks old and oh how they have flown by. It's funny how the second I found out I was expecting I wanted time to speed up and now that she is here I just want it to slow down, but it seems as if it's doing exact opposite... * She does this thing where she won't open both eyes, she only opens one it's just a little. That's when we know she is dead tired. * If you try and swaddle her she some how manages to get her arms out. She hates having them tucked in so now we don't even bother. * She sometimes cries and it sounds like a little pig squeal (to go along with the snorting I mentioned the last post) * She has no problem lifting her head, her neck is so very strong.  * Peyton seems to be w…
