Ian - 2 months old

He's growing like a champ! 22 3/4 inches long (50% on the curve) and 10 lbs, 7 oz (25%). If he continues to grow at this rate, he'll definitely be bigger than Malcolm who is on the 25% curve for height and 10% for weight.

Life With Two

It doesn't leave me much free time. Preschool started for Malcolm last week which should definitely help establish a routine in our household. This year, he's going 3 days a week and for the first 8 weeks, I'm on maternity leave and do not begin working in the classroom until November. I'm looking forward to having some solo time with Ian but I have a feeling he's going to be taking a long nap in the mornings when Malcolm's not around. During Malcolm's first day last week, he slept the whole time Mal was away. The poor baby typically doesn't get a long stretch of sleep during the day but it does mean he sleeps better at night.

Life has been good with two kids even though it's a struggle to get much done around the house. Malcolm loves being a big brother. The only time he has a 'hard' time is when he wants me to do something with him and I need to feed Ian. Ian is such a laid-back baby; we feel very fortunate.

Speaking of babies, Stephanie, Tony's youngest sister, is pregnant with another boy! This family is filled with boys on both sides of the family.

I'd love to continue to ramble on, but I can't stop thinking of all of the things I need to do around the house :)

A Busy Month

I didn't realize that it had been a month since my last update. We've had a pretty constant flow of visitors since Ian's birth and I haven't spent much time on the computer. We're all doing great and staying very busy. Check out my Flickr gallery for photos.
