On October 23 at 2 months old, Miles was baptized in church by Pastor Cody Statema! Almost all of our immediate family was able to be there for his special day. Thank you to all those who drove 3+ hours to celebrate with us! Miles did great all day even though he didn't get too many naps in. The next day I took him in for his 2 month appointment and found out he had an ear infection in his right ear. I never knew kids that young could get an ear infection. Other than that he looked great and these were his stats:
Weight: 13 lbs 10 oz (85%)
Length: 23.5 oz (72%)
Head: 66% - I forget the exact measurement.

6 Weeks!

Tummy time

Four generations

Miles is 6 weeks old today. He is a good baby, but of course like to be held. He is a good eater and will usually take a good 2-3 hour nap in the afternoon. The longest stretch he has gone at night is about 5 1/2 hours. Every one that sees him says he looks like Darin and I also get a few people say he looks like Brayden. He already likes his pipe and it is nice for car rides and church! I would say he weighs about 12 lbs and is definitely growing fast! It is still sinking in that I have three kids!!!
