Yeah, yeah. I’m behind. I intended to post an update after Laine’s 1-month appointment almost 2 weeks ago… I am finally getting 8 seconds to sit at the computer. 🙂 Todd left last Monday and Mom’s been staying with us. She left yesterday. She’s been helping to take care of Laine and Isaac. Thank goodness she was here! Todd will be back late tomorrow night and we’re all looking forward to it. Isaac is *definitely* missing his daddy!
Laine’s 1-month appointment went well. She gained FOUR POUNDS in one month!!! She was 7 lbs. 14 oz. at birth and was 11 lbs. 14 oz. at the doctor visit. She is growing and growing! She is almost out of her 0-3 month sized clothes. It’s hard for me to believe since Isaac was so much smaller. She weighed more at one month than Isaac did at 2 months. 🙂 We’ve also discovered that Laine looked exactly like her daddy did when he was born. When I get some free time (hardy-har-har), I’ll try to scan in a few of Todd’s baby pics for a comparison. It’s uncanny! She’s a good eater and sometimes a good sleeper. It doesn’t look like she’s going to have all of the reflux issues poor Isaac had, which is great news. I went to see my midwife yesterday, who said I look like I melted. Then she saw Laine and said, “Oh my gosh, it’s because she ate you!” LOL
Isaac is getting used to having a little sister. He dotes on her, which is very sweet. I have to be careful, though. I can’t leave him alone with her at all because he’s constantly touching her and he’s not yet mastered the “gentle” touch yet. He’s been VERY sweet and it makes my heart melt to watch him with her.
OK. On to the part you’re actually interested in; the camera dump.
For some reason, it won’t let me rotate these… Hopefully you’ll still enjoy the outtakes from the calendar photo:

I wanted to capture the look of terror on Todd’s face just seconds before this. His first time to hold both of his kids at once. 🙂
Nana and Baby Laine:
Still can’t rotate… Laine and her CPK. I will use this doll for size comparisons month-to-month. Isaac, apparently, will also be participating. LOL
Todd’s been working on the laundry room. Here he has been taping and floating the walls. You can see where the old window used to be.
