Small Visitors

We have had a great time with all of the visitors stopping by since we've been home. Hayes, Haley and Bevo were stopped by during the Christmas holidays. I think that in the future Hayes (with the help of Kendall) will have a big time bossing little Mitchell around. We also had sweet Sessions and Kate Scott stop by one day while in town for a Dr. appt. I think Mitchell is going to have his pick of women to choose from when he gets older with all of these little girls! The Vowell clan also came to town on Saturday to visit us. Both John Daniel and Kate wanted to take Mitchell home with them. If I thought that they could get him to sleep at night, I might have gone along with it!

A bunch of "Firsts"

Sorry that I have not posted in a while. It's been quite hectic around here. We are still trying to adapt to parenthood. We have had a time trying to get Mitchell to sleep at night and sleep in his bed. Luckily, I think we are beginning to head in the right direction! Since our last post, we have had many "firsts". We had our first doctor's appointment. We learned that our cute bundle of joy weighed in at 9.2 lbs at his first visit. Mitchell has also had his 2nd doctor's appointment last week (I thought he may be coming down with a cold). I was shocked to learn that he now weighs 11.4 lbs. We have a little chunk on our hands! Mitchell has also taken a bath (which he doesn't seem to like very much), experienced his first visit to Church on Christmas Eve and also visited with Santa.
