The Cousins Meet

As some of you may know, my sister-in-law and I were pregnant at the same time, both with our first child. It was fun to be able to compare, rejoice, and complain with each other throughout pregnancy. : ) Well, it turns out we both had boys, and they were born exactly 2 weeks apart (her first). So, two weeks ago, the cousins (Simon and Will) met for the first time.

As a side note---we were without computer for a couple weeks, and are now back in business, so I will continue to update the blog. Will is doing well, chunking up and being such a sweet, good, loving, cuddly baby (of course!). : ) We are enjoying every second of parenthood, cherishing every moment with our baby boy.

This one almost looks choreographed, as they look like they are moving in unison. Simon had been asleep for a while, so wasn't bothered by all the hubbub.

I love this one--it looks like they are holding hands. Sweet. My theory is that Will was trying to wake Simon so that they could find out how to get out of that crib, as he was not too happy about this photo shoot. It will be fun to watch these two cuties grow up together. What memories will be made! : )

Quick Update

Our internet has been sketchy lately, and I've been a bit busy. : ) But, Will had his 2-week appointment last week and he is doing great! He is showing all the normal signs for a newborn his age, and gained a whole pound OVER his birth weight! So, I guess he's a good eater. : ) He weighed 8lbs 3oz, and his birth weight was 7lbs 3oz. Also, he is starting to have multiple wake times during the day, which makes him sleep more at night! YIPPEE! We are going home for a family visit this next week, so will post more pictures soon. For now, here is a peaceful sleeping baby.
