today is my due date...

I love this picture! It's such a great shot of her huge double chin. It's usually not that pronounced...this was just perfect timing. It's so funny because she's still so small (not even 7 lbs. yet) but she is getting so chubby.
Ryan and I were talking last night about how strange it would be if Leah hadn't been here for the past 2 1/2 weeks. We obviously remember what it was like just the two of us, but we can't imagine our lives without her! So...here's a picture from her due date - she is wearing her "leah layton" onesie courtesy of Britty Bergeson... Ryan has created a sport he likes to call "extreme swaddling." He's pretty sure it's going to be a new event during the annual X games...and he thinks he's pretty good at it...
...leah thinks otherwise. She ALWAYS gets out. Today she shimmied out of not only her blanket, but her nightgown too. She will fit into her clothes someday, I'm sure.
And here's a shocker - Ryan goes running! For years i've tried to get him to run with me to no avail. he ran a 5k with me ONCE and has refused to run with me ever since. He thinks it's ridiculous to run when you're not chasing something like a ball. But, he has been running twice since we've been here. That may not seem like a lot, but it's quite the achievement for the Layton family. Can't miss him in that shirt, can you?

extreme swaddling, huh? i'll have to tell josh about that one--i'm sure it will push the excitement up a notch further. :)

by the way, just in case you weren't aware: leah is so stinkin' adorable!

Extreme swaddling, I like that!! I'm so proud! Some swaddling tips: make sure her arms are down by her side. It is also very helpful to use the right blanket. Like that cotton one I gave you, those are the best because they stretch, and you can pull them really tight, but they are not slippery. Asher would get out of his too, so one would think that he didn't like or want to be swaddled..did I care? No! Keep it up and I testify it makes a difference in their sleeping!

Stella didn't fit into newborn clothes at first either, and she was almost 8 lbs. when she was born. Oh, how quickly they grow into and outgrow them. Isn't it fun though!
