10 weeks

Thumb sucking is hard work, ya know?

Some milestones that I've been forgetting to record:

5-6 weeks: first real smiles
8 weeks: first check-up. 14.2 pounds.
8 weeks: sizing up in clothes, now wearing 3-6m
9 weeks: slept for a 5-6 hour stretch a couple nights (I think I jinxed us by writing this down)
9 weeks: started watching his puppies

Favorite things:
Trying to suck his thumb!
Star patterns
Bath time with daddy
Walks in the Ergo
Talking with mom and dad
Singing songs

weeks 5-8

(wearing juni in my ring sling to try and get some work done...but it is hard, so very hard...i mean...look at those lips...)
 (juni's first big road trip to MN for auntie Hannah's wedding)
 (looking sharp with his bow tie)

 (pit stop on our looooong car ride...usually around 15 hours round trip (with stops)....add another 10 hours when you have a nursing 5 week old)
 (lunch with a view)
 (early morning walks)
 (a favorite activity...laying in the yard and laughing at trees)
 (juniper's first train ride...he cried)
 (a little pumpkin from grammie)
 (and the cutest outfit ever)

Juniper's first October (and all the color and wonder that October brings). Almost 8 weeks old.

man-ternity leave

 I (we) feel so lucky that Luke was willing/ able to take 3 weeks off of work after juniper was born. I appreciated (and needed!) the help/ support and it was wonderful seeing them bond. There were lots of stories, dancing and kisses.
