And the ones that mother gives you don't do anything at all

Happy Easter! Only five days late. Hey, you gotta take what you can get from a mom of a preschooler and a six-week old, am I right? Of course I'm right. Don't talk back to me, you!

Here's more pics (aka the lazy blogger's way of filling up a post):

Nolan's Easter Egg hunt. The Bunny was good to him this year, and wouldn't you know, that thoughtful bunny bought candy that Mommy can't stand, Spree and Smarties, so there is no risk of her eating all of the candy out of Nolan's basket. Thank you, Easter Bunny!

Nolan and his little brother. He's getting better about holding Miles - at first he wanted nothing to do with having the baby in his lap. He would give him kisses while someone else was holding him, and "hug" him while he was in his car seat or bouncer, but if you suggested he sit down and hold Miles on his lap he was like, "I don't think so." Now he'll do it, but not for very long. Which is fine, since we're still a little unclear on the concept of "gentle."

Miles' first Easter. The Bunny didn't bring him anything except for a hat, hastily shoved into big brother Nolan's basket, because the Bunny realized at 10pm the night before that Miles not only didn't have any presents, he didn't even have his own basket. So the Bunny quickly grabbed a hat purchased at Target earlier in the week and smushed it in there with Nolan's kite and wiffle bat and balls. Ta da!

We are slowly, slowly achieving a new version of normal for us. KB returned to work this week after a week off (huzzah!) and Nolan started a new preschool this week since the other one wasn't working out so well. (More on that whole drama later.) Miles is growing, eating, pooping, sleeping and doing all the things a six-week old should be doing. At his one month check-up he was 11 pounds, 6 ounces and 23 inches long. (At birth he was 8 lbs 11 oz and 21.5 inches long.) So he's gained almost three pounds and grown an inch and a half in a month. No wonder he's nursing every hour and a half!

We are all well, just a wee bit sleep-deprived and scruffy.

How are you?

Thanks for reading.
