Week with Grandma

Last week Brad's mom came out and stayed with us.... it was such a blast to have her here. She really helped out a lot and we really miss having her here. While she was here she took a few family pictures for us. It was before nap time so it wasn't as easy as i thought it would be but they turned out really good!

Grandma and Bailey having a great time doing what Bailey does Best!!
We also took a trip to the zoo...Jason was quite a handful. Thank goodness for grandma.

Day at the Zoo

Yesterday we took a trip to the zoo! we have been stuck in the house for 6 days and we all were about to go nuts so we got up early and went to the zoo for a couple of hours. It was the perfect day to go. While we were there the weather was perfect and Jason was in a great mood. It is really cool that he is getting to the age where he really enjoys these type of things because he understands more. We were really excited to see the bears because Jason is obsessed with the movie Brother Bear but unfortunately they weren't out :-( so we headed over to the monkeys which Jason really enjoyed. The whole time we were walking around he was making monkey noises. Bailey had a great time too! As soon as we got there she was hungry so I feed her and then she fell asleep and stayed asleep the whole time we were there... sounds like fun to me!!! I don't get a whole lot of that now a days:-)
Here is Brad and Jason when we first got there...I had to hurry and get a picture because I knew after a few minutes Jason would not be sitting still for anything!
And here is what little Bailey girl did all day! We just love her!!!
Jason watching the gorillas play
Jason was amazed by this guy! :-)
This took a lot of work but I finally got him to sit still so I could get a picture with him
Our sweet little boy making a goofy smile
Towards the end of our trip it was starting to get pretty hot so we stopped for an icee and here is jason trying to show us his blue tongue
Me and my wonderful husband...aren't we just so cute. We don't have too many pictures of just us anymore so it is always fun when we can sneak one in :-)
As we were sitting down taking a break with our icee Jason found a fence to climb. This kid tries to climb Everything.

Home Sweet Home

Yay for being home! we were able to leave the hospital Sunday and come home. So far everything is going great. I am feeling wonderful and Bailey is as healthy as can be especially for being 4 weeks early. She is now 6 lbs 8 oz and 19 1/2 inches long so she lost a little bit of weight but it is pretty normal for that to happen. Jason is loving having a baby around. Throughout the day he will realize we don't have her and will say "baby?" wondering where she is. So I will have to take him to the bedroom and show him that she is still here and then he makes me get her out so he can hold her or give her a kiss :-) its too sweet....I know! I couldn't be happier with how he is handling everything that is going on.

The proud big brother!

I know Bailey and Jason are not in this picture but he is just so good looking i had to post it :-)
My sweet did I get so lucky?!!
