Busy week!

Our little family the morning of May 5th!
Well the last 10 days or so have been pretty crazy. We have a sweet little 20 month old boy (Jayden) and another cutie just born on May 5th of this year (Landon)

I don't have long to post but figured I'd try to do this with a few pictures, hopefully it works!

In the hospital waiting for Landon to decide to come!

Our sweet new addition Landon Bryce Croxford was born May 5th 2011 at 5:52 pm. He weighed 7 lbs 10 oz and was 19 1/2 inches long. He has been a pretty healthy little guy. We stayed in the hospital for the next two nights and left Saturday (in the early afternoon as soon as we got the "go ahead" from Dr Judd. He was a little Jaundiced but not enough for him to need a light or anything, which is lucky. I think the lights are cool since you don't have to stay in the hospital BUT I'd rather not need a light at all. :-) Jason was able to take time off of work to be with my in the hospital which was wonderful, I loved having him be able to stay with me.

Here he is!! (Not long after delivery)

First time Jayden saw Landon

and more kisses!

Jayden stayed at my parents house (Thanks Grammy and Poppy!!) and it sounds like he had a wonderful time, and all the kids enjoyed him. My parents even were able to figure out how to "Jayden Proof" their house a little better which kept him off the counters and out of the bathroom sink etc. He is a little monkey!! All the kids were telling me how fun it was to have a sleepover with Jayden. I just hope we didn't wear my parents out too much.

My sister also helped with him for part of my labor so my parents could be at the hospital and be supports and help take pictures and videos etc. Thanks Megan, Wes, and Jesse!! (between my little guy, my sisters own kids, and my siblings they had 8 kids 5 and under between the 3 of them)

Jayden so far has been a good little brother, he helps give Landon his Binky, and says "uh-oh" when Landon cries and keeps repeating it until I get to Landon and get him to be quiet (that's my cute little J bear!!)
He also LOVES rubbing Landons head, probably because all of that soft hair. Either way its adorable, he did it the first time he saw him and still does it to this day!

We also had to run to the store to get Jayden new Binkies. He has still been using his green one from the hospital and wanted to take them from Landon since that is what Landon had as well. We bought some blue ones for Jayden so we would know which binky belongs to which baby. (Yes Jayden is still my baby too!)
There is more that we did but Landon is starting to decide he should be fed soon so I'm going to go get the burp cloth and everything. Its been nice today to have them both take a nap at the same time. Hopefully it stays this way! (fingers crossed)
