Deck Update Part 1

We knew when we bought the house the deck was going to need some work with the minimum being it needed stained badly. The deck area around our hot tub wasn't supported correctly underneath and some of the wood was in bad shape so it needed to be replaced. Plus we needed to add railing so no body fell off what is almost a 3 foot drop.

Before hand. 

There was a panel that covered this area, but it was in terrible shape
so we pitched it a while back. 
We removed the huge hideous bush. The landscaping around the pool area definitely leaves something to be desired.
You can see where the previous owners had to tried to fix the under structure and failed miserably by adding the random newish looking 2x4.
Our new support frame.

We added even more support perpendicular to these boards,
 but for some reason don't have a picture of it. 
Then we started to add railing.

The finished product. Now I can't wait to fix the stair railing and add railing to the other half of the deck.

Baylor-2 Months

Somehow Baylor is already 2 months old!!! Girlfriend is super chill and such a good baby. She nurses well and is only waking up once at night about 4:00 am after going to bed about 9:30/10. After she eats she will go back to sleep until 7/7:30. So have no complaints as far sleep  schedule goes. We started to give her a bottle once a day to get her used to taking a bottle for when I go back to work and its literally a 30 minute ordeal.

She hasn't had her 2 month check up yet because our pediatrician is on vacation for spring break until after Easter. I think she weighs about 10 lbs now though. We have started to wear some 3 months clothes, but they are all super baggy on her. Length wise though they fit pretty good. Also moved up to size 1 diapers.  Her hair is starting to lighten up, but it is still sticking up like crazy all the time.

Pictures from the past month:

She reminds me so much of Hendrix when she smiles.
