the foot

I know i have not posted pictures of Crewe. But when you try to take a picture of crewe he runs away and says, "No Pictures!!!!" Punk!

So here is a few shots of the baby sleeping. Look at the little foot working it's way out. I love it...but not feet!

It's 3AM

These are the eyes of a tired mom. This baby cries more than I can handle. At times. She is so dang wonderful but why does she cry in the MIDDLE of the night????

Now at 8pm at night she is asleep. Who knows what she will want to do tonight?

2 weeks here on earth

Today baby dayne went to the doctor for her 2 week check up. She is doing great. She weighed in at 7lbs 14ozs. EXCELLENT!!! (As a side note*I also LOVE her wearing bows and the pale pink outfit. It is a Tommy Hilfiger. Thanks Addison for the hand-me-down.) Crewe also came with us to the doctors (I had this need to have Rich there, in we all went). We had to wait FOREVER. The following also occured.

Us: "That is where the doctor sits."

Crewe jumps in the chair. "Call me Doctor Crewe."

Still Pregnant

I was planning on taking a few pictures this weekend so I could work on a new post. I carried my camera every where with us but no luck. We just are not busy exciting people, right now.

I am still PREGNANT!!!! I think I am okay with it but am getting very uncomfortable. I am sleeping in our yellow chair. I have heart burn after (hours later) I drink water or eat dinner (no matter what I eat). I also am short on energy. It is beautiful weather here today ( over 70) so i was planning on taking Crewe to the park. I showered and promtly lost all my spark. My sister-in-law must have known and called wanted Crewe to come over and play. A drop off date!!! THANK GOODNESS. I did end up going to Target for almost 1 1/2 hours. Did I mention that I move slowly?
