Well, I just thought that I would give an update on the last couple weeks. Mommy is working two days a week till the end of October then just one day. Paxton is now 13.6 lbs. Last night he sat in the Baby Einstein saucer thing and actually hit some of the buttons. His little head gave out after about 5 minutes. This week he sat in his high chair and ate some small bites of cereal. The spoon thing was kinda tricky but he will figure it out. I ran in to my neighbor in town today and she informed me that she can hear Paxton and I on the monitor at her house:), I was thrilled to hear that, I wonder what all I have said this week... At the pumpkin farm Paxton sat in his stroller for the first time without the carrier. He is getting so big. He also has decided that sometimes he would rather play with bottle nipple than suck on it. He has turned into the biggest flirt ever and would rather smile and spit at you than eat. This in turns into a real pain because when mommy decides she doesn't want to play I decide then that I am hungry. Also mommy and daddy bought some land in Melissa this week. I am excited about this decision because there will actually be room for a swing set some day. It is 2 acres with a creek behind it. This is the week in a nut shell. Paxton keeps getting cutier and doing new tricks...did I mention that he can now roll from his back to his stomach both ways?!!!

This is Brooks, I get to play with him every week when my mom sleeps after working the nights. The greatest thing about this friendship is it could last forever. His parents are building a house in Melissa, TX right now and my parents plan to in a couple years...so that means that we will both be Melissa Cardinals. I am thinking we have got the quarter back and the receiver right here. Look out other 1a schools here we come.

I will have you all know that this week and this week only is Paxton's first week away from his mom. Mom is going back to work in the ICU at Medical Center McKinney and is going to work every Monday night from 7p-7a (scary!!)...she figures she can handle nights since she feels like she is awake all the time feeding me. Well, she has had orientation this whole week. I am staying with Tammy Jones from church, she has my friend Brooks. I am not sure so far how he has felt about sharing his mommy with me. He is always staring at me and kinda giggles occassionally. Brooks is 2 months older than me. I think haning out with him half the day on Tuesdays will be pretty fun...we seem to have a lot in common.

On October 16th Paxton will be dedicated at church. As part of the "big" church Paxton gets to have his picture flashed on the screen...so we are in pursuit of the "perfect" picture. This is one of the photo shoots. Since my mom borrowed SueSue's camara she cannot stop taking pictures. Like the one she so rudely took while I was sleeping. This picture begs the question who do I look more like? The comments are so far about 50%, although I look exactly like my moms baby pictures...some people swear that I look like a little Rusty.

When Paxton first came home from the NICU he would not sleep, for 2 weeks we fought for 1 hour of sleep. "Angel" by day and "beast" by night was his nickname. We can joke now but we both got anxiety when the sun started to go down. So we bought this expensive sleeper bed, thinking that maybe he could not sleep because he did not have the boundaries that the NICU box gave him. We recently started brain storming about what we can do now that he is about to grow out of "the box". He now takes after his mother and is a bed hog:) I realized this week that I do not need to stress over the little things because the boy will let me know what to do next...like move the box and let him sleep in his big boy bed. I will have you know after the purchase of the box we were finally able to get 3 hours of sleep at a time. My new dilema is how to get him to ignore the hungry stomach and sleep through the night.
