We had a great, but very busy Thanksgiving. We headed to Benton Wednesday afternoon. Payne did awesome on the way home. He slept the entire time and never made a noise.  We had Big R's birthday dinner and just hung out. 
Thursday we headed down to Malvern to visit family and have lunch at Grandma and Grandpa's house.  It was delicious. After lunch all the girls and P watched some tv and chatted and the boys all took naps. 
That night we packed up and headed to my mom's house to have Thanksgiving dinner. For the past few years my oldest cousin has fried a turkey for us. It is always so good! We ate a lot and then played games until everyone was exhausted. 
Friday morning once again we packed up and headed out to have Thanksgiving again at my Grandparent's house. We were very sad that not all of our family was not able to come, but we missed them a lot! My cousin, Lauren, who I have mentioned before, was pregnant and miscarried early Friday morning. If you can keep her in your prayers and drop by her blog and leave her some encouraging words that would be great. That evening everyone went to the basketball game and P and I went home. When they returned home we played cards and listen to some music until very late. 
(I didn't get any pictures :( )

Saturday we just laid around until time to go tailgate at Allison and Baxter's. They had a great brunch tailgate. Then it was off to watch the Razorbacks take on LSU! We WON and it was an awesome game! After the game we headed to pick up P and go to bed!

Sunday once again we packed up and headed back to Benton for church. After church we ate lunch with A and B and D. and Big R and then quickly packed up and headed out.
We enjoyed getting to see everyone, but we were glad to be home as well.

Happy 3 Months Payne!

Payne today you are three months old! I can't believe it has been that long! I feel like yesterday I was waiting for you to get here! You are the sweetest baby ever! Here are some fun facts about you!

  • You wear a size 1 diaper
  • You weigh somewhere between 13-14 pounds. (Not sure)
  • You eat 6 oz 5 times a day. You have breast milk in the first bottle and formula in the rest.
  • When we try and burp you, you will scream!!! Everyone always laughs!
  • You started sleeping through the night at 11 weeks. You sleep from 7pm to 7am! (There have been one or two night where you didn't, but pretty good so far)
  • You are wearing 0-3 months clothes, with random newborn and 6 month clothes.
  • You have started to suck your thumb rather than the passy! ( Mommy isn't a fan of this)
  • You smile all the time! We love it!
  • You only cry when you have a dirty diaper or are hungry!
  • You are not a big fan of tummy time. It last about 5 minutes and your done.

Busy Busy Busy

Wow, have we been busy! These past two weeks have brought a lot of ups and downs!
First off a big thanks to my mom and Gran for keeping Payne last week and a big thanks to Grandma and Grandpa (Ryan's grandparents) for keeping Payne this week.  
In the past two weeks I have had two days of conferences with parents, Ryan and I had a date night for the first time in almost 2 months, we took Payne to his first basketball game, made some new friends, and many other things! 
In other news, P has slept through the night twice. Not back to back nights, but I am sure we are getting close!!!
Here are some pictures of the past two weeks! He is growing fast and getting chunkier everyday!

He was playing peek a boo and I had a great video, but I deleted it off my camera on accident. :(

Well, I am off to get out Christmas decorations! I love this time of the year!
