Family Cookout at DeDe and Poppa's

This weekend we had a family cookout at DeDe and Poppa's house. Wess, Corri, McKay and Owen, made the trip over to Dallas and we had a big family meal, complete with homeade ice cream (that the boys loved). Woods got to snuggle up with everyone in the family, and he really loves hangin out with his cousins McKay and Owen, and snuggling with Aunt Corri. We threw the three big boys in the bath together for a few more minutes of chaos.

FIrst Couple of Days Home

The first couple of days at home were great. We had a lot of good quality as a family. Woods was still a little jaundiced so he hung out in his bassinet by the window quite a bit and pretty much just laid around. He is a very laid back baby.

At Home

Cort was very excited to show Woods around the house, especially his "big boy room". John and Woods were able to catch some much needed sleep after putting Cort down for his nap.

Monday Morning, Last day at Baylor

Today was a pretty laid back day. We pretty much packed everything up and said goodbye to all of the staff who take care of us the last few days. Dad and Cort, had a special breakfast together and playtime before Woods was brought home for good. Aunt Wendy came up all day on Monday to hang with Woods and help get everything ready to go. We loaded everything up, and then spent some time tryng to figure out how to get something so small into a carseat. It didn't seem that hard with Cort.

Sunday at the Hospital

The hospital stay seemed to go by pretty quick. Sunday alot of our friends and family came by. We really appreciate everyone coming to the hospital to support us and welcome Woods into the world. Wess, Corri and the other Peterson boys spent quite some time hanging with Woods. It was alot of fun and a little chaos, and we wouldn't have it any other way. Uncle Chip and Aunt JoJo kicked it with us as well, Chip really likes posing with Woods.

"WOODS" (Woodrow Miles Peterson) BIRTH

Today, August 11, 2007, 6:20pm Woods was born at Baylor Medical Center here in Dallas. He weighed in at 7lbs 13oz, and is 20.5 inches long.
We came in this morning at 7:30am, after Audrey had about two hours of contractions that were right on top of each other. She progressed a little at first but then labor took a hiatus for a little bit. Our doctor decided that it would be best to break her water and keep this process rolling along. After some time had passed Audrey was complete but the doctor noticed that Woods was sunny side up (face up, and he needed to be face down). She reached up there and turned him but he fought it. We thought that he was finally settled and after about 20 minutes she decided to check and make sure all was well before Audrey started pushing. Woods flipped back! At that point the only option was to try and turn as she pushed, hoping that he would make the move and not get stuck in the process. He did great, fought a little but then conceded, and with about 25 minutes of pushing he was out. You will notice in the pictures he has lots of bruising on his face and forehead due to the turning process, but it has already started to go away. Cort was a little apprehensive at first, but then loved holding his little brother. He even tried to help clear out his nose. We look forward to this new Journey with two.

Cort loves him some Popsicle

While waiting for Woods arrival, after hanging out at the pool with the DeBlank twins, Cort cooled off with one of his favorites, a "sicle-sicle"
