I took Marshall to the Doctor yesterday for his 2 week check up! Boy, this little kid is GROWING! He is weighing in at 10 pounds 3.21 ounces and 21 1/2 inches long! That is a gain of about 1 1/2 pounds and a 1/2 inch!! You can tell that he is getting big. Not that I am surprised given that he eats ALL THE TIME! He is not sleeping very well and I am struggling with that, but we will get there. The doctor clipped his frenulum (the connector piece of his tongue) so hopefully we won't have the nursing issues I had with Jillian. Doc said that he looks great. His cord looked good and she cleaned it all out and said his Boy parts look good too!
Good news too...both girls got their H1N1 vaccines and Jillian was able to get her seasonal flu vaccine. The office didn't have Layla's but they said they would be getting more, so I will just keep checking. They both seem a little "sniffly" and grouchy today, but I was expecting that. Now, if I was in a better mood, I would probably handle it all better. Oh well. Such is being a mom!
Jennifer took some pictures of Marshall and the girls last week. The first couple can be checked out at her blog. The girls did great. Marshall wasn't happy about it at all, but we got a couple great ones! Thanks Jen!!

OMG, we have a boy! That is so hard to believe! Marshall George made his appearance on October 26th at 1:54pm. He was 8 pounds, 15 ounces, and 21 inches long. He is beautiful and perfect! Eric will never admit to it, but he just kept staring at him as if he couldn't believe he had a son! He was so sure that the baby would be a girl, I'm not sure he ever even entertained the idea that it could be a boy! He is so happy! The girls are adjusting to him too. They have both been sick so they haven't been able to hold him, but seem to like him regardless. If you want to know more details about that actual birth, check out my journal blog (link on the right) for all the gory details. :) Below are some pictures of the beautiful little boy. He has most definetly completed our family. I've also included a picture of Halloween...we had kind of a generic one as the girls and Eric were sick, but my mom and I took them a couple of places! Layla was so excited to be Scooby Doo and Jillian really loved the dragonfly costume, She didn't like it when we took her out of it. Thanks so much to Terresa for sharing!
