Melissa called this morning and asked if I could come watch Dylan and Austin while she took Luke to the Dr. Luke's had a cold and he started complaing about his ear hurting. 2 1/2 hours of waiting later, Melissa was glad she waited because Luke did have a raging ear infection, and he was a given a prescription for antibiotics.
In the meantime, at home Austin was happy and bright eyed so I tried to take a few pictures of him since he's already changing so much. It's hard to believe he's 3 1/2 weeks old. No sooner than I was ready to snap the camera Dylan appeared in the middle of the picture to give Austin a love and he wanted to pick him up. . . Dylan is very loving with the baby, but not very soft. He starts out soft, but gets enthusiastic and forgets the soft part. The bottom line is that you never leave the baby alone for a nano-second if Dylan is near.
Look at these darling boys! You can't see Austin very well, but he is really growing and has a little round face like Luke did. He is still so alert and bright eyed. Melissa is able to pump so I gave Austin a bottle and he loved it. He was an angel today and probably slept too much. Dylan and I read every book in the family room and we watched the Thomas the Tank Engine video not once, but twice all the way through. Dylan fell asleep on the couch before lunch watching 'What's the Name of That Song" with me. Luke took a good nap for over 3 hours. The antibiotics already seemed to be kicking in and he was feeling better. I ended up spending 10 hours with Melissa and those sweet boys. A lovely day!
