One night in the life of a new mom....

12:30 - Dog wakes mom up to go outside.

1:30 - Baby wakes up with wet diaper and soaked crib. Replace with new diaper and new bedding. Give baby bottle.

2:30 - Baby awake again. Pants off. Diaper off! Bottle empty. Baby smiling. Replace Diaper. Replace pants.

2:35 - Baby refuses to go back to sleep. Put baby in bed with mom and dad. Baby makes strange noises for half an hour before conking out.

3:00 - Mom now awake and can't go back to sleep.

7:00 - Baby awake! Mom makes bottle. Baby plays on floor while mom (exhausted from nightime adventures) falls asleep on the floor beside her.

7:30 - Mom wakes up to rattling sounds coming from the kitchen. Finds baby in dog food. Baby EATING dogfood! Mom freaks out, smacks her on the back to get it out. Mom puts dog food on counter. Baby cries.

8:00 - Mom can't wait until baby takes a nap and is seriously worried about the effects of dog food. And the day has only just begun!

Back from the Holidays

So much has happened over the past few weeks. Brent graduated! Amy and Judd had a new little addition, and Annabeth had her very first Christmas. We've had so much fun hanging out with our families, and can't wait to see them all again! Brook, Baby Rylan, Amy, and Judd

Me holding my new little nephew. Isn't he cute?

Annabeth and Big Daddy

Barrow Family

Annabeth loved the Christmas tree!

All the Thompson girls and their girls.

Erin loves to take care of her cousin.

Grandma Troutman with her great grandkids.

I just love this picture.

Annabeth is all worn out.
