Babysitting and tights! Oh yeah, and snow.

Friday night marked our 6 week mark since I had Peyton so we decided to go on a date to celebrate. It was our first date since the night before Peyton was born. We had one of my beehives, Ashley, watch the boys here at our house and Nana Byn watched Peyton. It was so nice. We have never had a baby that could be babysat so early on. It is a great relief to have a baby that will take a bottle! We went to the hospital to visit my friend Jennifer that just had twins, a boy and a girl, and then we went to dinner at John's Incredible pizza. It may not sound very romantic, but that's good (I'll tell you why later!) We had a lot of fun together, we played games and won some tickets and got the boys some prizes. So, even though we have reached our 6 week mark, this Wednesday I have to have a "procedure" done. They are going to inject me with radioactive dye to see if in fact my tubes were both tied, so we were not given the go ahead just yet. I have to pump and dump for 24 hours following the procedure because of the radioactive dye. It sure is a good thing that Peyton will take a bottle. I've got 4 stored up so far, so I'll need just a few more.

Peyton wore little tights for the first time on Sunday, they were so cute on her, she looked like such a girl! I tried to put them on her before, but they were so huge on her they just looked silly. She is really filling out now and they looked very cute on her, I think this is going to be a regular Sunday thing!

On Saturday Tyler took the boys and my sister up to the snow. I was sad that I couldn't be with them, I stayed home with the baby, but at the same time, I know that the time will be here before I know it that we can all go and play together. They had a lot of fun. They had snowball fights, went sledding and made a little snowman.

The tights look so cute!
Is that a normal procedure after having your tubes tied?

One exception to the snow comment...your snow looks REAL!! When we went tubing, you could see the snow makers all over the hill. I miss real snow!! I love the little tights. She looks so cute and I bet you are having so much fun with having a little girl! I am so happy for you!

How fun, I love the tights too, and all I can say is that your sooo lucky to have the kids grandparents close, for more reasons than babysitting but that's a bonus!! We love you guy!!!
