Sledding and other good stuff

Over the MLK break, it snowed and we took the kids sledding for the first time all winter. Sad that it was the first time, but it was awesome. We had a lot of fun as a family.

Gotta love the boys Cougar hats!

This year was the first year Keaton realllllllly got into it. Last year he loved it and cried when we were done, but this time he really wanted speed and could carry the sled up the hill when he was done and go by himself...bonus!

The other good stuff I was referring to was our little man is doing so well...this picture shows his cute little body. This is a preemie outfit on him that is really too small for him to wear, but I had to put it on him just once considering by the time he comes home, he will be in newborn clothes. I know, most babies are. But I have some of the cutest dang preemie clothes ever and am sad he wont get to wear them because two of his brothers did. BUT him not wearing them is also good because it means he is growing like he should. I mean really, what other 4 month old is wearing preemie and newborn clothes...I just dont want him to grow too fast because I am just barely getting a start of my time with him!

Paxton is offically down on a low enough setting of oxygen that he has been able to start eating. One bottle per day, one nursing per day. He has done so well with it that whenever anyone picks him up he trys to latch just about anything! He loves it! He, like my other boys, is going to be a champ nurser. And I can't wait to quit pumping and nurse full time! This picture was taken today (sunday, the 22nd) and Cort was giving him a bottle for the first time.

Look at his little fingers wrapped around the bottle! He is so dang cute!!

Paxton and me having some cuddle time...his oxygen always gets turned way down when I am holding him like this...he loves it!!

So they are saying two to three weeks and we might get to take our little man home! I am spending a lot more time at the hospital these days and it will only increase as I feed him more. But I am loving it and it means the end is near!

so cool about paxton! we love to hear it all but aren't about what you want to share about it. but your mom tells lots and we are just so thrilled about those wonderful days. he is just beautiful! i agree, as much as he is suppose to go up big, i hope it doesn't happen to fast for you. every baby always seems to grow up faster than the laster one. love those infant days!
