We had Miles's 2 week check up this morning... he's just perfect, as we suspected.
He regained his birth weight and then some. He's 8 pounds, 11 ounces.
Here's my sweet one the night of his actual 2 week birthday-- Tuesday night.
Carson was at school this morning so I just had my two littlest guys with me.
I realized as we were getting out of the car that when we traded our Bugaboo
for the City Select Double stroller I never bought the car seat adapters. Whoops.
Slade was out of an infant seat by then, and until this morning, it never occurred to me
that MILES would need them. So that left me carrying the car seat and Slader walking!
He's not the most tame of 20 month olds... but bless his sweet heart, he was an angel.
The cake pop he got during mommy's drive through Starbucks helped keep him company.
I was very grateful to little Slade for being ever-the-big-brother and making his mom
look like she had it all together. It could have gone very differently with him on the loose!
Speaking of Slade and Miles... Slade's started to "notice" him the past few days
and has gently tried to pat him, lay his head on him, and give him kisses.
He's even calling him "Bubba" which is his name for Carson/brother. It's really quite precious.
Miles is getting no shortage of love from all of us.
His cord (or "raisin" as Carson called it) fell off yesterday. The pediatrician said he could have
his first real bath this weekend. Whoo hoo! More baby milestones happening in the house.
... and before I go, let me just say that my family and I have been really blessed by some amazing friends since we brought Miles home. So many generous treats, surprises, meals and acts of kindness to help out while we adjust to being a family of five. I am oh so grateful for the blessings! Precious Lauren dropped this delicious late afternoon snack off for me and the crew yesterday-- you're the best L!
Happy Thursday my friends!
