2 weeks and counting!!

Peighton is just over 2 weeks now and is doing so good!!! She is eating like a champ and was back to her birth weight by the end of the first week. She is a lot like Brody and is a pretty chill baby. She is sleeping about 3-4 hours at a time... Brody is doing great as well. He has not been jealous of her at all. Half the time he is in his own little world... He comes up to her and says "hi Peighton" and "love you Peighton" and likes to point out all her features...his favorite being her eyes :) He has been great through this whole transition. Ever since we got home, Brody has seemed so big to me. Not just size wise, but overall... He is really getting to be such a little toddler. He says everything you say. He tries to sing his ABC's and can almost count to 10.... He leaves out 3,4, and 7...but hey...we are almost there.... He runs all around the house. He has gotten really fast too. He now has 8 teeth and a few more coming through... My little toothless wonder is really turning out to be a real kid ;) He genuinely makes me laugh most of the day. Here are a few more pictures of Peighton and couple of Brody.

Little Peighton Michelle

As some of you know, we welcomed Peighton Michelle Toone to our family Saturday March 6th at 8:54 pm. She weighed 7 lbs 10 oz and was 19 and 3/4 inches long. As you can see she has a great head of hair and is as sweet as can be.

Lauren did an amazing job. It was a privilege to be at my wife's side and witness the birth of Peighton. It's humbling to see your spouse work so hard for such a noble cause. Lauren did wonderfully and my hat is off to all mothers.
We brought Brody up to the hospital and he was not really interested in Peighton or the room that Lauren was staying in. So I ended up walking around the hospital with him for 2 hours. Since we have been home he has taken more of an interest and is learning to be soft and give Peighton kisses. We missed him incredibly while we were in the hospital and appreciate all those who helped watch him while we were there.
Lauren's parents got in town Sunday morning and have been a huge help. With their help we have really been able to focus on Peighton and Brody. I am sorry for taking so long to post pictures but we have enjoyed taking our time with the kids and getting settled back in at home. We feel blessed beyond what we deserve and are thankful for all the thoughts and prayers directed our way. We love you all and will post again soon. -Joey
