Thanksgiving 2010

This post is a little late, but for my own sake I wanted to write a very little post about what I'm thankful for this year.

Never in my life have I had so little, but felt like I had so much.

Never have I felt God's presence so often. He is watching over our family. He has given us exactly what we need just in the nick of time over and over again the past few months and I'm thankful for that.

Don't be too jealous...but Patrick and I saw the Harry Potter movie this weekend. We loved it! Of course, we are loyal Harry Potter fans, so we knew we'd like it.

Other things going on in our lives:
- Patrick is still working at Holt Elementary and taking classes at the U
- I just took one of the parts of the CPA exam and I find out if I passed in December (cross your fingers!)
- Thanksgiving next week with the Frost's and Corbin will be here!
- Patrick is excited that basketball season is starting...Jazz and BYU
- Megan is starting to smile and really trying to coo, but having a hard time getting it down

Here's a video of Megan stretching and smiling. It's more for me and grandma than anyone else... :)

Baby Bedhead

Love it! :)

So They Say

Our sweet baby is one month old. It is so hard to believe that she's already been a part of our lives for a month. And she has already changed so much in just a month--she has chubby cheeks now! We love her to death! She is a sweet girl.

So, what have people said about Megan Frost in the past month?

She has lots of dark hair
(old man balding style of course)

She has her dad's eyes and her mom's mouth and nose

She's tall and skinny

She always wants her hands tucked right under her chin

She loves baths as long as the water is warm

She loves laying on the floor to stare at people and things

Other fun facts about Megan:
- Her toots and poop are unusually stinky for such a little lady
- She will sleep and sleep and sleep if she's warm and bundled up
- Her umbilical cord fell off a week after she was born
- She has incredibly long fingers and toes (almost freakishly long)
- She has a small dimple on her left cheek
- She may have started smiling yesterday...not really sure

Thank You Baby!

Well the little lady weighed in at a huge 7 pounds 6 ounces at the doctor yesterday. It seems a little crazy to me that she would have gained that much weight in only 2 days, but her weight is up and I'm not complaining! It kind of makes me wonder if the scale was off on Monday...

I Think It's Love

Dad loves baby and baby loves daddy!
This is how they play...

Put on the Pounds...Please!

Well the doctor's appointment with Megan today was a little less promising than I had hoped. She weighed 6 pounds 10 ounces at the doctor today. Which is an ounce less than she weighed at the hospital. The doctor thinks she looks healthy and that it might be a scale difference, but that's still not the news we were hoping for. We have been feeding her in exactly the same way we did at the hospital, so I don't understand why she hasn't gained but hopefully it really is just due to the scale. We don't want another big loss! We have to go back to the doctor on Wednesday to get weighed again, so cross your fingers that she's gained weight or there may be a lot more of the doctor in our future.

Happy Halloween Eve

Halloween was a little less exciting at our house this year. Patrick usually likes to throw a Halloween party, but it didn't happen this year because we were a little busy with the baby and the stay at the hospital...but we still had time to have a little fun!

We carved pumpkins with Jamie and her kids. Patrick carved a character that I can't remember the name of and I carved Frankenstein. On Saturday night we went to Andrew and Victoria's for some delicious pumpkin pasta and pie! Megan slept through the party...

Thanks for the Halloween outfit Grandma Clayson! Unfortunately it got peed on about 10 minutes later.
