We Survived.....Professional Pictures!!

Alexis Grace 5 weeks old

Alexis was so laid back and didn't mind the bright flashes of the camera at all

Hunter had a meltdown and decided he did not want his picture taken at first...

Mommy's favorite picture!

After many cheerio's Hunter decided to cooperate and smile for the camera!

Big sister Allie

Future heart breaker

Group Picture

Hunter was fascinated by the ocean backdrop :-)

Two hours later we were able to chose which pictures we liked the best. Now I remember why we don't have pictures made very often!

Happy 1 Month Birthday Alexis Grace!

Alexis Grace is one month old today! The month has flown by! She is such a sweet baby girl. She is sleeping about 5 hours between feedings at night which is great! She is strictly breastfed and we have been giving her a bottle every few days to make sure she becomes used to a bottle (Hunter refused bottles!) We have ventured out of the house a few times since she was born-it is a lot harder to go anywhere with 3 kids vs 2. We have gone to Target and Allie was booted from her spot in the double stroller so that Hunter & Alexis could ride. We have also gone to lunch at Salisbury CC with Gigi & Poppy and to their home. Other than the doctor appointments for her check ups we have not done much else. It seems like the days are flying by. By the time everyone is dressed and fed in the morning and I have had a shower it seems like it is already time for lunch and nap. We are hoping to visit the pool next week so we'll see how that goes :-)

Hunter's First Haircut!

Who knew a haircut could be so traumatic?!

Hunter did not want his hair cut...

But it looks SO CUTE!

Hunter had his very first hair cut at Diva's and Dude's. He got to sit in a cute little fighter jet and watch Elmo on dvd but even with all the distractions he still did not like getting his hair cut! He cried and screamed until the end. He looks like such a big boy now! Bye bye baby hair. Mommy was sad to see his cute little curls chopped off in the back but it was time for the hair cut.

2 Weeks Old

Alexis Grace is 2 weeks old! Time is flying by! She is very alert and responsive to voices and sounds. She is a sweet baby and pretty laid back however she does let you know when she is hungry!

Memorial Day Weekend

Alexis meeting Pop Pop for the first time!

2 weeks old

Granny Jan, Uncle Ben & Pop Pop with the gang

We had a great Memorial Day weekend. Clint was off of work on Monday and we spent Saturday and Sunday visiting with Pop Pop & Granny Jan and Uncle Ben. Baby Alexis spent most of the weekend asleep. She is doing great and getting big! She is pretty alert and observative for a few hours each day. She loves to watch the fan and she loves her baby swing. She had her two week doctor appointment this week and received one shot. She has gained 1 ounce per day and now weighs 8 lbs 14 oz.

It's tough being a baby...
