Family Pics

Here are some very recent pictures (before yesterdays snow) of the family. Bruce and Hayden have been playing together a lot and we tried to take some family pictures but they didn't really work out, we will try again another day. Most of you know Allison is on oxygen so I have not taken too many pictures, it's a pain to take it on and off all the time.

Hayden is really the best big brother. He likes to hold Allison all the time and kiss her and bring her toys when she is crying. He says "it's okay Allison" over and over. Very cute!

Tiny Town

These are pictures from our trip to Tiny Town. Fun was had by all, some more than others! Most the houses are just for looking in the windows, but a few the kids can go in.

Hayden and his ice cream cone on the kid sized bench.

Hayden in the windmill, the first house he found that he could actually go in.

Hayden being so excited the other kids wouldn't even come in the house.

Hayden being so loud the other kids left ;)

Choo..choo...an hour after his nap time so he doesn't seem very excited at this point.

Here are the first posts of our newest addition to the family, Allison! She was 19.5 inches long and 7 pounds 11 ounces. She ended up having her dads blood type, just like Hayden and also just like Hayden ending up spending some time under the tanning bed for jaundice.

This is Allison moments after she was born, lots of comments on her "big" head and how they couldn't get her out, even via csection...but we think she looks perfect :)

Still attached to her cord, daddy then got to cut it.

Allison very mad!

Warmed up and much happier

Hayden loves his little sister. Allison is now on oxygen because of the high altitude but is doing well and loving the attention from big brother.

Hayden's daily routine of talking to and holding Allison.

Hayden playing with the gift that his god parents Jen and Robert sent him. Very excited little boy!
