Miles has joined the family

On August 7, 2010, Miles Robert joined the family. He was 6 pounds, 14 ounces, but now (Sept. 12, 2010) he is up over eight pounds. Miles is a sweetheart - very content to have his bottle and loves to be held almost constantly. He is not yet sleeping through the night, but is up to four ounces of formula at a feeding and is pretty much on schedule to wake at 2 a.m. and 5 a.m. I don't think it will be long before he is sleeping through the night.

Oliver is learning at a lightning fast pace. He will be four on Nov. 15. He knows all his letters (upper AND lower case), and all his numbers, shapes, and colors. Since he has started watching "Word World" on PBS, he is spelling lots of words with his magnetic letters (carried around in a bucket). I'm told he insists on "little case" letters sometimes and won't take upper case substitutes. He can print his name so it is recognizable. He still loves Maisy books and doesn't sit still very long. He figured out the potty in late July and has proceeded well with no accidents for the past month. He is tall for his age and most people think he is older than he is. If you ask him something for which he doesn't know the answer, his reply is "peanut butter." He likes making jokes with the "peanut butter" phrase thrown in and he knows when he is saying silly things and enjoys it quite well.

I cannot begin to express how much I enjoy being around both my grandsons. It is so exciting to see them grow up and learn.
