***Cute As Can Be***


Here are some more pictures of Daxton. I just can't get over how stinkin cute he is!! I wish there was a way for time to stand still. I just can't get enough of him. I just want this precious time to last forever! He is such a sweet little baby. So good, he sleeps all night...I have to wake him up to feed him.

On Wednesday, his eyes looked a little yellow, so we took him in to have his bilirubin checked. It was high, so he had to sleep in this little tanning bed looking thing bum naked. It just broke my heart! My mom and I took turns and stayed up with him all night long. We had to monitor his temp to make sure he didn't get cold. Of course he did...he is such a little guy, so every 15 min, we would cover him in blankets for 10 min. It was a nightmare!!
We took him back in yesterday to check his levels, they had went down but not enough. So I called my doctor and asked if there was another way, other then the "tanning bed" to get his levels down, and now we have a light we put on his back under his nightgown, and it is much better! This way we can still hold him.

Can you see how fuzzy his little back is? So cute!


Kennedi absolutely adores him! She wants to hold him constantly, and some times makes me a little nervous. She is getting a little too comfortable with him. The day we got home with him, she was holding him on the couch and next thing you know, she stood up and started walking across the room with him. I just about freaked......so now we have a couple of rules for her and Daxton.


Gotta love all that hair...

I can't get over how much Dax looks like Kennedi did. Sometimes when I'm holding him, I feel like I'm holding her again...so weird. Here is a picture of her a couple days old that is similar to the picture of Dax above.
I love this video of Daxton. His cry is the sweetest little thing!!

Oh he soooo cute! and I agree he looks EXACTLY like Kennedi! Crazy! Those heat lamps aren't any fun at all. Both my kids had to do that because they couldn't hold their temp. either. :( But it looks like you are having fun! Thanks for the updates!

Holy hair! Aren't little boys fun! Halle had to be on the "tanning bed" for a while too. It's not fun! Hopefully that's all over now. Too bad we don't live closer. Dax and Chase could have been buddies!

Oh Shanell, he is beautiful. I can't believe how much hair he has. My one year old daughter still doesn't have that much.

It is hard when they are jaundice. I hate it. I'm sorry you had to deal with that. The light paddle was probably a dream come true after your long night.

Congrats! I am so excited for you.

Congrats!! What a cutie and soooo much hair. I just love it. I am a little disappointed though, I thought for sure you would follow in our footsteps and name him Talen. But, Daxton is an adorable name too. Best of luck!!!!
