Miles and Miles of fun


Miles has been a great little addition to our family, well maybe little isn’t the right word! Just 4 days after bringing Miles home from the hospital he was already 4oz above his birth weight, 7lb 3 oz, and eating 3.5oz at each feeding! At his 3 week appointment he was 9lbs 10oz and one week later he weighed in at 10lbs 7oz!!!! He is now 5 ½ weeks old and eating 4-5oz every 4 hours, such a little chunk! He is also about 23 inches long and wearing 3-6 months clothing which AJ didn’t fit until he was at least 4 months old.

At 4 ½ weeks he rolled over for the first time and has done it a dozen times or so since then. Although none of his rolls were intentional I am still counting them! He also has a cute little trait we refer to as “The quiver.” The quiver is the shaking of the bottom lip, like when you are cold and your teeth chatter. It can happen at any time, while happy, sad, burping, or just hanging out and it always makes me smile.

He loves sleeping on his tummy, even though you are not suppose to let them, we are always laying right beside him when he dose. Miles is as much a cuddle bug as AJ was, if there is any way he can be in your arms he wants to be. I think sometimes he cries just so I will pick him up and snuggle and that’s defiantly okay with me!

Everyday I fall more and more in love with the newest little man in my life, he's perfect in everyway and I feel so blessed to be his Mom! I also wanted to point out this beautiful blnaket my Great antie Verna sent me. She make's these blankets for all then new babies in the family and said that it was one of her very favorites. I wanted to post a few pictures of the blanket Miles got from his Great Great auntie Verna, Thanks so much we love it!

I wish I knew how fun he was! It sucks that the only time I get to see my new nephew is when you post pictures of him. He deffinatley has his own look. But I agree he has the same lips as Aaron, at least in a few of the sleeping photos. Can't wait till you come up! Love you guys.
