1 month old today

Well we made it 4 weeks and things are slowly getting back to normal in the Maxwell house. Spencer is doing great he is changing everyday and getting really chubby. The picture of him was taken this morning. When he went to the doctor for his 3 week checkup he weighed in at 8 pounds 3 ounces and the doctor said all was well with him. Kaylee is doing good, the adjustment has been good for her. She seems to be a little more independent and she adores her little brother. Kaylee has been building me things out of her Lego's as you can see she is very proud of this masterpiece. We went to Houston over the weekend and Spencer saw a lot of people for the first time. I really enjoyed the visit because I got a break for taking care of the kids 24/7 so maybe I should go down more often. I am sure the grandparents would not mind. I am really feeling better and more normal again. Eric is working hard keeping up at work and home, I think we both forgot how demanding a newborn can be. Everybody take care and have a great weekend.

Well its been 10 days and life has been great. My surgery wasn't bad at all and the recovery has been OK.

Spencer is a really good baby. He is the typical eat, change diaper, and sleep newborn. He stays awake about 2-3 hours a day, but most of the time he just sleeps. I can't believe I am a mother of 2 wonderful kids and the wife of the best husband in the world to let me stay home with my children. Kaylee has adjusted so good, she wants to help all the time and has only acted out a little but nothing bad at all. When you watch Kaylee with Spencer you can see in her eyes how proud she is of him. Today when I went to change him she ran in his room before me jumped up on her stepstool and got out all the supplies exactly how I do it. I couldn't believe she had been watching me so close. Spencer is growing fast so I will post some more piscs very soon. Kaylee and Spencer are going to have the pictures made on Sunday, thanks to one of Eric's co-workers who is going to come to our house to take them. Thanks to all who haved helped us during this time. I could not have gotten along so good without you.

Love, The Maxwell Family
