One Week Old

Brandon had a successful visit to the doctor yesterday. He weighed in at an even seven pounds - up from his discharge weight of 6 pounds 9 ounces and already surpassing his birth weight. At this rate he'll weigh 200 pounds when he starts kindergarten.

They also measured his length (the same) and his head circumference (34 1/2 cm). This would make his fitted cap size 4 3/8 (if they made them this small).

Since he was born on a Thursday, we're planning to take a picture of Brandon every Thursday to watch him grow week by week. Here is today's picture:

Brandon 8.27.09

Future installments will be uploaded to Flickr in the set called Brandon's Thursday Pictures.

Family of Four

Brandon and Steph are both healthy and back home after a couple of days at the hospital. We took our first picture as a family of four while we were all there.
Family of Four

Evelyn is doing a great job as a big sister - she just wants to be around her brother all of the time. She's even sharing her room and her books and her music with him.

Reading and Relaxing at Home

She is also giving him lots of hugs. Hang in there, little guy...

Eat It!

Evy took a trip to the game preserve this morning. She was able to see the buffalo and hang out on the bridge over the pond.

On The Bridge

Evelyn had fun throwing bread into the water and yelling at the ducks to eat it.
Hey, Ducks!  Eat it!

Then an entire gaggle of geese arrived and chaos ensued...

Car Cruise

Evelyn had a chance to visit a different car cruise tonight. It had more cars than our usual one, but no Italian ice.

Moon Hubcap Reflection

Evy had a lot of fun looking around and was pretty excited when her favorite purple Bel Air showed up at this car cruise, too.
