Two Weeks




Here are a few pictures of Ford the last week and one of Claire and Ford at the pumpkin patch last weekend. Ford is growing fast! He was 8lbs 2oz at birth, 7lbs 11oz when we left the hospital, 8lbs 4oz at 1 week and 9lbs 8oz at 2 weeks! It's amazing how fast they grow. He's not a little newborn anymore :( I had some "newborn" pictures taken this week by our awesome photographer Erin Nolen (her blog is on our favorite sites). As soon as I get the slideshow I'll share it. I can't wait to see them!

I've enjoyed getting into a routine this week and getting back to our normal activites. I've ventured out with both kids a few times (I even made it to a 7:30 am pediatrician appt!) and I'm trying to learn how to best manage everyone and all the equipment necessary to sustain and transport two kids. I've decided toting the pumpkin seat around is just not the best way to transport a baby. Seriously, we have taken a very small and portable person and made them very heavy and awkward by lugging them around in those silly seats! I bought a sling and we both love it so I'm going with that as much as I can for now. Besides I need both hands to take care of Claire!

More good news from the Shirley household - RHETT PASSED HIS BOARDS! Yeah! He is officially Board Certified in Internal Medicine - woo hoo! We are very proud of him as he has jumped over yet another hurdle in the crazy medicine game.
