Trey Vinson has arrived!

Now that Trey is one month old, I guess it’s finally time for me to announce his birth on the blog! At 12:22pm on August 30th, 2011, Trey entered the world. I was blessed with a fantastic c-section (much different from Will & Levi’s birth), and it was pretty fun to hear what the Doctor and nurses said about him before I could even see him. Our doctor said something along the lines of ‘wow, look at all that red hair!’, and then he said ‘he is giving me some serious stares.’ When he mentioned the red hair, I was thinking that it was probably brown with a little red tint to it. Boy was I wrong! Trey definitely has red hair, and at my first glimpse of him, I was shocked at just how red it was! Where did that come from?! If that wasn’t a big enough surprise, he also has blue eyes! I know that this could change, but I am going to enjoy every day that I get to stare into his big, blue eyes. His other stats at birth were: 7lbs. 15 oz., 19.5 inches, and a set of healthy lungs : )



Such a sweet face!

The boys ran into the recovery room and announced that his name was Trey Vinson. They thought that I didn't know what his name was yet : )

Sunday, Sept. 4th
Our first big outing was to church. I was feeling great and ready for some fresh air. Trey slept the whole time.

Snuggle time!

It's hard to keep Will & Levi away from their baby brother. They love to be close to him, sing him songs, kiss his head, and try to make him smile. It's adorable!

Trey at two weeks old. You can kind of see his big blue eyes.

This first month of Trey’s life has been a much easier transition than I ever expected it to be. He is such a good baby- eats well, sleeps great at night, and rarely ever cries! He loves to snuggle with anyone who wants to hold him, and he doesn’t mind the constant noise and activity that his two big brothers create for him. Speaking of those two guys, Will & Levi have been incredible big brothers. Will has become the little expert at burping Trey, and Levi loves to help me change diapers. In fact, Levi woke up a few nights ago around 3am just to help me change a diaper. Once he was done, he went back to his bed to sleep. It was precious! They have stepped up as little men of the house and surprised me on every level. I feel bad that I can’t spend as much time with them as I used to, but they have been so flexible about it all. What a true blessing!

In his short life, Trey has already experienced a lot! We took him to the West Texas Fair and Rodeo when he was two weeks old. He slept through most of it, but I’m sure he loved it! Then at three weeks old, he traveled to the metroplex. We stayed with my parents and introduced Trey to my oldest brother and family, the Burton Bunch, and my home-church family. He was a great traveler, which is a must with our busy little family! Most days though have been pretty relaxed and peaceful at home.

I can’t believe one month has already passed since he was born. We are all in love with Trey-man, Treyburn, T-man. He is the perfect addition to our family.

He is beautiful. We absolutely loved meeting him a few weeks ago! Seeing him with Will and Levi reminds me SOOO much of Logan when we brought Tag home from the hospital. There is just nothing in the world more precious than watching a big brother dote all over the baby brother that he prayed so long and hard for. Just melts my heart. You have LOTS of good years ahead. Tag will be 4 tomorrow- I can't believe I'm tearing up as I write this. It just goes by so fast. ENJOY EVERY SECOND! Love you....
