Week 10: Happy Mother's Day! (May 13)

Biscuit had his 2 month check up this week and all was well.  He is growing well, still in the 6th percentile for weight but moved up to the 7th percentile in height. His head circumference went from the 34th percentile down to 22nd.

This Sunday was my first Mother's Day and Michael knocked it out of the park.  I will let the pictures speak for themselves.

Week 9: Bring May Flowers (May 6)

I received a card in the mail from my grandmother just one week before she passed away.  When I opened it up a plethora of newspaper clippings fell out.  They were mostly comic strips about babies filled with handwritten notes. I will treasure these always.

Charlie and Michael accompanied me to the memorial service on Saturday.  It was a beautiful service, but what moved me the most was how many people came up to me and asked me if my baby was Charlie, the baby she couldn't wait to get her hands on.  Others came up to me with wishful looks in their eyes and one question.  "Did she get to hold him? It was all she talked about." I am so happy to say that she did get to hold him and I wish she got to hold him more.

Biscuit and I started work on Monday.  My newest boss is a sweet little girl born on March 24th, but outweighing Biscuit by a whole pound!  He seemed to be very clingy most of the morning but about the time work was over he decided this wasn't so bad.

I think we are gonna be fine...

Oops!  Almost forgot Biscuit turned 2 months old this week!

Week 8: April Showers (April 29)

Biscuit and I have finally gotten a great rhythm going. (Just in time for it to be all thrown off when I start work next week.) We have managed to make it out to go grocery shopping, baby supply shopping, clothes shopping, and just for fun shopping.  He is becoming such an easy baby (knock on wood) and we are having a great time together.

This week Biscuit's Great Grandma Mary Eleanor Phillips Smith passed away at a ripe old age of 89.  She lived a long, beautiful life and while I am sad that she is no longer with us I am happy knowing that her faith has taken her home to be with her husband and daughter and many others who passed before her andshe loved dearly.

I am so glad we drove to see her just a few short weeks ago.  She held him so long her arm fell asleep twice.

And that is all I have to say about that.
