Where'd they go??

Payten's new famous line... "Where'd they go?". I heard this many times today as the last of our visitors have departed. :-( We were all sad to see them go. Not only were they all a great help, it was so nice to have company. Payten absolutely loved having someone around 24/7 other then just her parents, we get boring after a while plus we tell her no. Haha. Thank you Mom B, Dad B, Tracy, Aunt Jane, Mom H, Laura, and David for all coming to visit us. We are so glad you all came to spend time with us and Camryn loved meeting her family. Come back and visit soon!

Tomorrow morning we will prepare for Trick or Treat. I can't wait to see how Payten does this year going around from house to house. I will be sure to post pictures of our adventure.

Hope everyone is doing well. And I promise I will be better at posting once I have a little more free time :-) Happy Early Halloween!

Uncle Dave and the girls!

3 Weeks Old

Happy 3 weeks Camryn Brooke!

SeaWorld Visit!

Payten went to Sea World for the first time today with Uncle Dave and Laura. She had a blast and enjoyed feeding the fishies. :-) Her new favorite word. We can't wait to take her back again! Here are a few pictures from today. When Laura sends over more I will be sure to post them!

Football Sunday!

It's a lazy day around the Hogan household. We are enjoying some family time and football of course! Here is a picture of Payten enjoying some football time as well, while Camryn naps. :-) GO GMEN and Packers!

Fall Festival

Here are some pictures from today's fun at the Fall Festival. This is our 2nd year going and we had a blast. Hopefully next year it won't be as hot! :-) Thank you Ellison family for inviting us!

Falling Leaves...

Well since sunny Florida still thinks it summer, we had to improvise and have a pretend "fall" season. We headed out to Celebration to watch the leaves fall. It was a huge group of us (Sean, Payten, Camryn, Mom H, David, Laura, Me, The Ellison Family, and Dana & Doug). After we watched the leaves fall for the first time we headed to a little cafe to enjoy a nice dinner. Payten was terrified of the sounds from the leave machine but did enjoy running around with all her family & friends. Hopefully next year she'll enjoy it more :-)

Payten getting ready for the leaves to fall...

YAY... here they are!

And again.... who knew paper leaves would be so fun :-)

Colt & Payten having fun!

Wisconsin has arrived!

Well not Wisconsin but our visitors from Wisconsin have arrived. :-) Mom Hogan, David and Laura have all arrived safely. And we are enjoying our time with them. Payten is just loving having all this company. We have lots of plans for the weekend, so look out for lots of pictures.

Happy 2 Weeks Camryn Brooke!

I can't believe our little peanut is 2 weeks old already! Where is the time going? We are loving watching her grow and watching her big sister love on her. Happy 2 weeks Camryn Brooke!

Our visitors depart...

Our first round of visitors departed this weekend. Now its just the girls and I. Today is our first day without any help and so far things are going well. However I do look forward to 6pm when Sean will walk through the door. Right now both girls are napping so I am trying to play catch up with computer time. I am sorry to all that I have not responded to your emails. Things have been crazy around here. I keep telling myself every night to get check my emails and reply but the time I get around to it I am just too tired. I am thinking things will be less crazy when we have more of a schedule. Or so I hope :-)

Mom Hogan, David, and Laura will be arriving on Wednesday evening. We can't wait to spend some time with them.

Hope everyone is doing well. Here are few new pictures of the girls :-)

My Little Pea in a Pod

This morning we had our newborn session with Amy Robertson. Camryn did great! Payten on the other hand didn't want anything to do with the camera. I was bummed of course because I really wanted a picture of the two of them. Maybe next time... Here are a few from our session this morning. Thank you Amy, your work is truly amazing! :-)

Pumpkin Patch!

Ahhh this cool weather is wonderful. Now if it will only last.... We headed off to the pumpkin patch today. Payten had a blast picking out her own pumpkins. She found two she had to have. It was too cute! She even stopped for a few pictures with her new little sister :-) Hoping there is more of this cooler weather to come...

Awesome gift!

I had to share this neat gift that my girlfriend Leah sent me for Camryn. It's a diaper cake filled with goodies. It came with diapers (Pampers Swaddlers), baby powder, a cute burp cloth, and soft bib. It is just adorable! Thank you so much Leah!

Weight Check #2

Camryn had her second weight check this morning and she gained 3 ounces. Thank goodness because if she didn't gain we would be making another trip to the doctors. Although it doesn't matter too much since we have her two week check up on Tuesday. :-/ She is doing really well. She is a pretty content baby, I just hope it stays this way. :-)

Payten is doing great. She is loving being a big sister. She loves to hold Camryn and give her lots of kisses. It's too cute.

Things are still crazy around here but its coming along. I am feeling pretty good. Just taking it easy and enjoying having help with the girls and with the house chores.

Here are a few new pictures of the girls. :-)
I am going to try again at this Halloween shot, but not too bad for the first try :-)

First few days home....

It's been quite crazy around here. My recovery has been a thousand times easier then with Payten but of course with a 19 month old you don't have too much time to think about yourself. Camryn is adjusting at home well, and Payten is just loving her new baby sister.

I have had a lot of help these past few days and thank goodness because I wouldn't be able to do it without them!

Camryn had her first weight check today and she weighed in at 6lbs 2oz, which is an ounce less then what she left the hospital. So that means another weight check later this week. Let's pray she gains a few ounces!
Here are a few photos from our first days home. More to come soon!

Daddy and his two girls!

Sean is absolutely loving his two little girls! Now he has two daddy's little girls. :-) We are filled with so much joy that Camryn Brooke has joined our family. We are in love with her already and look forward in watching her grow along side her big sister!

BIG Sister Payten!

Payten is just loving her new little sister. She can't give her enough kisses and hugs. It is by far the sweetest thing ever. I am so lucky to have two beautiful little girls!

BIG Sister, Payten Elisabeth!

Lots of visitors!

Camryn is one popular little girl already. She has lots of visitors in her first few days of life. I keep trying to tell her to not be rude and sleep threw their entire visit but she told me she needs her beauty rest so she can get big and play with her BIG sister Payten :-)

Mema & and Great Aunt Jane with Camryn Brooke. Thank you Mema and Aunt Jane for being such a big help with Payten. We are truly blessed to have such wonderful women in our lives!

While Mema, Aunt Jane, and Payten were visiting... Aunt Dana and her sister Beth came by to meet Camryn. The little angel managed to sleep threw her big sister running all around.

Ally's mommy, Kim stopped by for an evening visit to meet Camryn. Now we have three little girls in our play group. Come on Kim, lets make it four! I am sure we will be hearing some good news from Kim soon, because you hold a little one the baby fever starts!!! :-)

Little did Camryn know that she would have all these friends waiting for her. Thank you Ellison family for coming to visit. Camryn can't wait to play with all of you when she comes home.

Auntie Tracy had to squeeze in one more visit before Camryn headed home. Auntie T came to visit with Sean, we got to hang out and watch the Yankee game and have some dinner. We can't wait to see you in a few days!

It looks like today will be discharge day, so I am trying to take advantage of the downtime and keep up with blogging. When we return home today we are up to any visitors. So come on over, just call first though :-) Hope to see you all soon!
