2 months

Kiefer is 2 months old today! He's breastfeeding like a champ... he gained a whole pound in just one week. Yesterday he weighed 12 lb, 1 oz!

We finally got him an activity gym and he absolutely loves it. The last few photos in the photo album illustrate that. You can also take a look at a video of him admiring his reflection in the mirror that came with the gym. Click
HERE to see it.

Being the proud parents that we are, we take a lot of pictures of Kiefer. We only post some of those photos on this website. If you'd like to see more, you can visit our
Picasa web album.

7 weeks old!

Kiefer is 7 weeks old! He seems to be getting bigger and changing by the day! It is so much fun to see him grow and learn. Just last week, he finally discovered his Nijntje mobile and has a great time watching the Nijntjes and talking to them.

Oma and Opa left on July 3rd and since then it's just been the 3 of us. Things are going well. We're trying to establish some sort of schedule, but just when we think we have one, Kiefer decides to change it! We're usually able to sleep 4-5 hours at night before he wakes to be fed. Once he has something in his belly, he usually sleeps for another 2-3 hours. Not too bad!

I haven't been getting out too much... usually only 3 times a week. Now that he's getting bigger, I am feeling more comfortable about going out with him. I can't believe he'll be going to daycare starting in September when I go back to school and work. He will be there for 25 hours a week.

As anyone can see, Kiefer looks exactly like Roel. It does look like his eyes are getting dark, so he may have my eyes! That's something, I suppose!
