Memory Game

1. Add a comment on my blog. Leave one memory that you have had with either Tristen, Blake, or Nixon. It doesn't matter if you knew us a littler or a lot, anything you remember!
2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about us, we'll assume your playing the game and we'll come to your blog and leave one about you.

Peek a boo and Daddy and Mommy

Nixon loves to touch his face. No matter how tight we wrap him with his arms down in his blanket he always manages to get his arms free and puts his hands up by his face.

This was so cute the other day, he acted like he was playing peek a boo. But he was really sleeping

Nixy and Daddy

Nixon and Mommy

When we took the blanket off of him this is how he was laying.

Bath Time

Nixon isn't really a big fan of bathtime... He mostly screams the whole time! This was his very first bath at the hospital.

This was his second and third bath at home with help from Grandma Corrie and Aunt Tauna. Thanks again Tauna for all the bathing tips! (Grandma Nancie helped on his first bath at home but we forgot to take pictures of it)

Nixon Blake Tingey is here!

On Thursday July 10 I woke up at five thirty having contractions, at eight I decided that they were probably the real thing so we went to the hospital to get checked. I was dialated to a 3 but still pretty thick. The Dr. came at about 2 o'clock and broke my water. He said that I was about 5 cm dialated but still pretty thick. When the nurse came to check me at four o'clock she was so surprised that I was fully dialated and fully efaced. She said that she was going to get the Dr. on his way. After about eight pushes Nixon was born!
He was 7 lbs 3 oz, ad 21 inches long. He has a ton of dark hair, and as you can see in the pictures it's a total mohawk! They tried to smooth it down but it wouldn't. It's a perma hawk! He was so alert for like the first six hours after he was born. He would just sit there and stare, take in the new surroundings. His dad would tease him cause he had a huge cone shaped head when he was born, if you've seen Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull thats what Blake said his head looked like. The crystal skull. Daddy was so worried that it would stay that way forever. It's gone down dramatically since then. And he has the longest feet and fingers. He is so perfect. I am so blessed that Heavenly Father trusted me enough to have this child and to raise him. It's amazing that everything can change so fast when a miracle enters your life. He is a miracle to me.
