more Tason...


We just can't get enough of this little guy!!!

1 month

It's already been a month now, since our little man was born. And even though Tason is a little more high maintenance that the girls were at his age, he is such a joy to have in our family! He has started showing us his sweet smile and trying to talk to us with his sweet little baby coos.

Tason's stats: 11.5 pounds and 24 inches long.  (If he keeps this up, we might have to bust out the 3-6 month clothes a little early!)

a little Avie time...

Avalyn is such a good helper! All the girls are. But Avalyn is especially trustworthy when it comes to watching Tason, while mommy tries to get something done.  And she's really good at sticking with watching him, even when he starts fussing.  The younger girls tend to run off at the first signs of tears.  I am sooo thankful for all my "little mommy" helpers!

nana

Nana came to see baby Tason and the girls (and to help mommy get some sleep)! We really wish that she lived closer!!! Come again soon, Nana!

the swing

Tason loves to sleep in his swing... while the shower's going.
The second the water is turned off, there is crying involved!

*the water was running during this photoshoot.

I love this picture of Briley and Tason!!! This is exactly how big she smiles everytime she sees him!

snuggles and kisses

Tason snuggling up next to Shallon. And Shallon cooperating with some sweet kisses for her baby brother.

napping...

Tason and Briley napping on the couch together (staged).

Ok, so you know you have a newborn, when you have like 50 pictures on your camera and they're all of the baby sleeping (in different outfits, of course)!

So, here's the first of many posts of a sleeping Tason.  But don't let that fool you, he is only sleeping while being photographed.  The rest of the time he's eating or fussing to let me know that he wants to eat, or fussing because silly mommy thought that she could set him down since he fell asleep while he was eating when really she should have known better!!!  :)

good clean fun!

Tason's first sponge bath, minus the sponge, so it was really a washcloth bath.  He slept almost the entire wash down.  I love the first week when new babies just sleep, all the time.  All that sleeping is just to lull new moms into a false sense of security, then the sleepless nights begin...

no more hospital...

Yay, Granddad!!! He was able to capture the first thumb-sucking shot of Tason (while Tason was trapped in the NICU).













After our not-so-fun stay at the hospital, Tason and I were finally released today. Since it was already kind of late we decided to head over to Grammy and Granddad's for the night.

I love how tiny newborns look in their giant carseats!!


The girls had a nice little reunion with their baby brother (they hadn't been able to hold him while he was in the NICU).

I didn't get a good shot of it, but Tason's onesie says, "worth the wait" and he definitely was. We are sooo happy to have him finally join our family.
