One month old!

Owen will be 1 month old tomorrow and Madelyn will be 21 months old... time goes by so fast! We have all adjusted fairly well, I think, to having a new baby in the house. Maddie's favorite thing to say is "Owen's OK" since that is what we say to her when he cries. She is very concerned about him and says "Owen's OK" all day long even if he's not crying. Most of the time she sounds pretty pitiful when she says it and it's hard to say who she's trying to convince... Owen, us or herself. Ben and my only complaint is that Owen has no sense of time and is waking up every 2 hours on most nights. We took Owen to be weighed on Friday since he hadn't regained his birth weight by 2 weeks, the doctor wanted to be sure he started to gain appropriately... he weighs a whooping 8 pounds 4 ounces (with a onesie on, a dry diaper, and a half full belly)... still not even close to his sister's birth weight! Yesterday we all went into DC to do some Smithsonian hopping since Ben hadn't been in quite some time. We went to Air and Space, 3 art museums and finally ended up at Natural History. It was nice to hang out as a family for a change! Enjoy some of the latest pictures!

Maddie has to "look" at Owen when he cries on the changing table... she's great at holding his hand!

Such a big girl!

Maddie takes good care of her babies... sharing all of Owen's seats with them and giving them "beekets" (blankets).
