Who does he look like?

Ty had his 2 week Dr. appointment this week and he is growing and doing great! He weighed 9 lbs 6 oz, which means that in the 5 days since his weight check...he gained 10 oz. He is definitely an eater! He is in the 70th % for weight, 50% for height and somewhere in between that in head circumference. Since Kinley has maybe never been above 20th % in weight...this is new for me. I just love those chunky, kissable cheeks! I am very thankful he is eating well.

We have still been laying very low around here. Ty is awake more during the day now, which I love...but, finding time to blog is proving as difficult as I expected. I don't want to take any time away from playing with my kids and at night I tell myself I am going to blog when they go to bed...and then I just want to go to bed too. So, I am taking time this Saturday afternoon while everyone in my house is sleeping to catch up a little bit.

Ty and I got to take and pick up Kinley from school this week and she loved showing him off to her teachers and friends. Ty had to do his 2nd newborn PKU heel prick screening this week and he was a champ. It was far less traumatic for me than when Kinley did hers. Kinley's half birthday was yesterday so now she is officially 2 and a half. The Barstads came by for an evening play date since they were coming in town and Kinley thought it was THE best half birthday present EVER. She was seriously on cloud nine. No pics from this unfortch...but, I can still hear them all playing and laughing and I just love it.

Also, here are some comparison pics of Kinley vs. Ty in similar positions that my mom took on her phone (so quality is not tops). Everyone keeps asking me if they look alike and I really can't tell yet...but, these pics were a big reminder of exactly what Kinley looked like when she was just a few weeks old. I think they look like brother and sister...and I think they have the same lips but, they definitely look different too. Kinley's features are more delicate and girly and Ty's features are more boy-ish, if that makes sense.

He has even changed more since these pics were taken. Right now, with eyes open, I think he looks like Uncle Alex. We will see if it stays that way!

Hope everyone has a great weekend! I feel up to some Fall decorating since it is October now!
