My sister had my niece this morning at 9:30 am (NY time). She weighed in at 7 pounds 10 ounces and was 20 inches long. Both mom and baby are doing great. Courtney had a very short, smooth labor and delivery. Savanah Michele is precious and looks just like her big sister Rachael.
Brennan is at the age now where he can understand right from wrong (to a VERY simple degree). We've started putting him in time out when he doesn't obey or hits. I had my camera handy to capture him in his first ever time out. It broke my heart, but I know it'll be good for him n the long run.
It's been a long time since Casey and I have gotten the kids together to play. In fact, it's been a really long time. We've been trying to get together since before August, but every date that we set up, something came up on one end or the other. Literally...since before August. Now, the kid did each other at a couple birthday parties, but to actually set up a playdate...it's been forever!
We FINALLY got together today, and it was nice. The kids played nicely...well, mostly nicely. You can't ask for perfection when the kids are: 6, 4 1/2, 3 1/2 x 2, 1 1/2 x2.
The great thing, is that our youngest children were born only a day apart. I love getting pictures of them together. The rest can be found on my smugmug site.
Well, over the past 2 or so weeks, Brennan has decided that it is FINALLY time for him to use walking as his main method of getting around. It's cute watching him walk. He's still wobbly, but gaining confidence every day!
On a more serious note, I've noticed that his 'walk' doesn't look quite right. A few other people have noticed and mentioned the same thing to me. It's kind of hard to describe, but it looks like there is something wrong with either his right hip or right knee. Almost like a limp. I called the pediatrician's office yesterday and talked to a nurse. She talked with the doctor and we decided to watch Brennan closely for another week or so. If he seems to have pain with walking or dragging his leg, then we need to be seen right away. If not, then it can wait until his 18 month appointment (which is next month).
