Poor Little Griffin

My poor little buddy has some sort of eye problem going on. We don't think it's pink eye because it is swollen, and he has a fever. The Dr. said it is either Orbital Cellulitis or a spider bite. He is taking an antibiotic, and we have to fight him to get drops in his eye. I sure hope it clears up fast, he looks so pitiful, and is acting sick and not like himself at all!

Paisley at 2 months old

- Eating 4ozs about every 2-3 hours
- Wearing size 1 diapers
- Starting to pull and grab at things
- Sleeping a little better, usually on her tummy in the bassinet about 4 hours tops at a time
- She smiles at silly things, and it is SO adorable! I love that little toothless gummy grin!
- She likes her baths. But only after she whines the first couple of mins, I think the water scares her at first
- She has a little bit of acid reflux, I had to fight the Dr. to give her meds for it. We have been taking it a few days. We will see how it goes!
- She weighs 11lbs-12oz and has the CUTEST little chubby rolly-polly thighs! I just want to eat em!
- Slayde is still in love. Griffin has warmed up pretty quickly and likes to give her love now too!

Getting Better


Okay, I promise to start being a better blogger!

We have had a crazy few weeks! Paisley was born and a couple weeks later we took off for 2 weeks to go visit my parents, and my sister. The day after we got home from Savannah, we were on the road again to go to New York. Dans Grandmother was very ill with cancer. We were there for almost 2 weeks. She passed away. We are glad she is in a better place. It was so very hard to see her in pain.

We brought Anna (Dan's 12 year old daughter) home with us because she was on spring break that week. We stopped off in Washington DC for 3 days to visit the sites! It was fun. DC is such a beautiful city with so much history! We went to a couple of the Smithsonian museums. We actually ran into my sister there too! (she lives in GA- so it was weird!)<>

And totally for my records...
at one month old, Paisley is:
*Sleeping in bed with mommy and daddy, on occasion she will sleep for an hour or so in the bassinet beside the bed before she realizes she is alone.

*Wearing a Newborn size diaper

*Nursing every 2 hours or so. Or will take a bottle of about 2-3oz in the same time frame

*Made a 5 hour trip to Savannah with mommy and big brothers alone, and did a good job traveling that far!

*Has visited the Easter Bunny for the first time

*Wears a premie or newborn clothes, and all socks are VERY Large

*Big brother Slayde LOVES Paisley so much! He always wants to hold and kiss her. Griffin isn't quite sure what to think!

Our New Addition

I have been out of the blogging loop for a few months now. I guess between being pregnant and living in a house with a small kitchen, I didn't have much motivation to try out new things. We moved at the beginning of February and have gotten settled in well. On March 11th, we welcomed our sweet baby girl to the world! Paisley was born via c-section, so I am trying to take it as easy as I can and just enjoy the baby and the boys!
Here are a few pictures that were taken when Paisley was 4 days old.
I hope to be back in full swing soon!

White Chicken Enchiladas







Via the Pioneer Woman...
These were SUPER YUMMY!
It looks like a lot of steps, but they were not hard to make! I used boneless chicken breasts. I also added a dab of cream to my cheese sauce mixture. I used canned diced green chilis. They were NOT hot or spicy... My 4 year old ate every bite of his without complaint! (which is very rare!!)
Enjoy!
Here is a link to her recipe that I followed. She explains WAY better than I ever could!

An update


I will be 12 weeks pregnant tomorrow! Hopefully, that means an end to the sickness!! I got to get another look at the little one today. They did a "NT scan". Everything looked great! The baby was so cute. Waving its arms and hands all over the place. It was jumping around... I loved watching it on the screen! I can't wait to find out the gender!!! It's killing me!
I have only bought a FEW girly things... Lord help my bank account if we find out it IS a girl! haha!!
Here is a picture of a picture the US tech gave me today! Cute little bugger...
