Safe and Sound!

Peyton is such a trooper! All went well this morning and it so was not a big deal. His only issue was waking up...he cried for about 20 minutes straight and then off and on the whole way home. We were told to expect that though. The outpatient center was wonderful and everyone was really nice...we even saw the Dr. that delivered Peyton as well as my anesthesiologist for my c-section. It was like a family reunion! The whole surgery took all of 7 minutes and we were home before 9:00 a.m. We thought Peyton was going to spend the day wrong! We managed to get the Christmas tree up, but we certainly accomplish all we thought. He did go to bed early which was great...I hope tomorrow will be a day less fussy! Thanks for all the phone calls and emails....we appreciate it!

1st haircut and little blue tubes

Peyton officially got his first haircut yesterday! It broke my heart to cut his beautiful hair, but he got his mother's crazy curls and it was more than I could handle. He was such a big boy and there were no tears! yea!
Daddy and Peyton pre-haircut....notice Peyton's big smile :-)

Miss Erin and Peyton....he loves her to death and obviously thinks he's "the man"

Tada!! All done...look at those curls!!

With Thanksgiving over and Christmas approaching we have decided that now is the time for Peyton to get his tubes. For those that don't know, Peyton has been fighting ear infections since June. Most recently he has had one for over a month. He has been a trooper with the pain, but this last one has given him a really hard time. After mis-diagnosis at two quick cares and tons of antibiotics later, our pediatrician suggested taking him to an Ear, Nose and Throat Dr. last week. With cold season just getting started, he suggested that we go ahead and get tubes for Peyton's ears :-( We go in tomorrow at 6:30 a.m and I am a disaster!! The surgery itself will only take 15 minutes, but I would have to think that I wouldn't be a normal Mom if I didn't worry. I'm looking forward to this being relief for Peyton and definitley fewer ear infections for him. Say a prayer for us as we get up at the crack of dawn and take our little man into surgery. I will update hopefully tomorrow night!!

Family fun and a football game

What a fun weekend! This Saturday we met up with Brad's family in Baton Rouge for the LSU vs LA Tech football game. It was a blast! Needless to say the guys went to the game and the girls (plus one boy!) did what we do! We had a blast with the kiddos at the mall and they both did wonderfully. Nana got a lot more pictures than I did so I will post those as soon as I get them. One thing we discovered on this trip is that Peyton is so not ready for a little brother or sister. He so doesn't get that babies are not toys and are not for hitting and rolling on. Thankfully Abby escaped with no injuries...Christmas should be interesting...hopefully Abby will fight back by then! ha! He also would get extremely jealous if Brad or I held Abby for too least we knows he loves us! On Sunday we decided to go to LSU and take our family picture for our Christmas card. We also got some cute pics of the babies....I wont share the family ones (you'll have to wait till Christmas) but here are some sweet ones of the kids..enjoy!
