Pics Please

Keaton weighed in at 9 lbs 7 oz yesterday (6 weeks 3 days old). It's very interesting to have two children on opposite ends of the spectrum. Keaton is in the 25th percentile. At this age, Carson weighed nearly 13 pounds and was in the 95th percentile. The competitive side of me can't help but worry and wonder about Keaton's growth but I'm sure the doc will just tell me to relax.

Keaton is a Type B kid in a Type A family. He is so chill and low key. He only cries when he's hungry and even then if you whisper in his ear, he instantly calms down. He sleeps almost all day long.

We've had some rough nights lately. Last night for example.

We were very excited because the night before we'd reverted to swaddling Keaton on his back and he only woke up once. But two nights in a row is not possible. Last night for Pizza and Movie night, we broke our rule and Carson watched a PG instead of a G movie. Once again, it backfired. PG for "crude humor" is great. PG for "scary battles" means the same thing every time. Carson wakes up screaming from nightmares.

Don't laugh but last night the "True Story of Buzz Lightyear" - a horrible knock-off of the classic, Toy Story- woke Carson up three times screaming "MAKE THEM GO AWAY!!!". The robot vs astronaut battles were just too much.

So after Carson had been up three times in three hours (which requires us to pat his back until the monsters subside) then Keaton woke up. He ate around 3ish and then decided not to go back to sleep for 1.5 hours. It was torture. We took turns rocking him, praying for a miracle.

And for the long awaited pics!!

This one cracks me up!
Practicing his neck skills but hating it.
This is Keatons' BFF Colton. They were born 3 weeks apart.

Those little legs are so cute!
