Here is my beautiful bundle at 4 weeks old. Time flies.

Just checking things out! Thanks Marla for the adorable shirt. It is so true.

Baylor is doing so well! He is happy most of the time when he is not sleeping/eating (he is always happy when he is eating and of course sleeping). He just pretty much hangs out! Which is good because his sister is quite busy and active and time consuming as she should be at almost 20 months! Juggling two is quite different, but the same at the same time! We just try to stay ahead of things. Example...if Baylor needs to eat the same time Averie eats lunch (he still isn't on an exact schedule...predictable but not yet the same each day...) we just plan Averie's lunch ahead of time. I make it when she is busy playing and occupied and when he is either napping or hanging out in his bouncer or pack n play. It has worked quite well. The only day so far that has been challenging was the day after trick or treating. Averie went to bed at about 9:15pm the night of trick or treating and woke up at a normal time and was cranky by 9:30 to say she was not exactly happy when I decided to feed Baylor at 10 am...but I have successfully mastered the art of holding her while nursing him... but anyways...planning ahead of time works because then when it is time for Averie to eat her lunch (around is ready to go. It might need a little warming or what not...but all in all she is good to go. I also have everything pretty much cleaned up by then too. So, I am not digging myself a hole of dirty dishes in the kitchen! That is another thing that is still going good. Also, Averie has been having "blanket time" every day after lunch. She sits on a blanket on the floor and we turn on music and I give her 4 or 5 toys to play with and she sits there and plays by herself. It gives me a half an hour to clean up the kitchen after lunch, feed Baylor or whatever. She likes it and calls it La La's (as in music). But for now Baylor and Averie are doing qutie well together. I do not look forward to the day they gang up on me!

Baylor had his check-up today. It went well. He is 9 lbs. 14oz. and 22 inches. He is just a tad under where Averie was at her one month check-up. She was 10 lbs. .03 oz. and 22.5 inches. So, just because he was born a tad bigger does not mean he is going to be huge! We'll see though, I imagine he'll catch up sooner or later! But the Dr. said he looks good and to keep going on nursing and don't worry about cereal til after 4-6 months...which I wasn't even thinking about. We'll be nursing exclusively as long as he can go. Hopefully longer than 6 months. His Dr. was saying that the more "they" (the food administration people) look into cereal and baby food the more they find that the eariler you start them the more prone to allergies your child could be... with Averie we waited til 5 months, but we'll try to go longer with Baylor. It's just more work for the Mama!!! Well, I hope this gave you all an update on how we are doing! We hope you all are doing well. Baylor will be baptized this Sunday, so we'll be posting some pictures of that after the weekend! :o)
