Kieron: first three weeks

Kieron is just over three weeks old and we’re settling into a routine with two children. So far he’s quite the sleepy-head, has a great appetite, and loves to cuddle and be held. After a night home from the hospital we realized Kieron needed a pacifier (Avery spit them out), and since then life has been a little better. In the night we’re getting three and sometimes four hour stretches between feedings. This week Kieron started smiling a little bit. We’ll try to get some pictures to post soon.
We’re so proud of Avery and the way he’s responded to Kieron. He’s a proud big brother and is never short on hugs and kisses for his little bro. He asks questions like “is Kieron hungry,” “does Kieron like giraffes,” and “can Kieron play trains with me?” It’s pretty cute.
We’ve managed to get out quite a bit with the boys. We’ve been to Zeeks Pizza once, and Chantanee for Thai food twice. We also took them to the top of the Space Needle, made a road trip to Mt. Vernon for a birthday party, and went shopping at the Nordstrom half-yearly sale.
P.S. We posted a bunch of earlier blog posts starting with Avery’s birthday. Scroll down to see them.

He’s very strong, almost looks like he’s ready to crawl 😉

Hey good lookin’

Kieron Scott King

Lindsey had a c-section scheduled for Friday, May 7th, but at 6:00 a.m. on Cinco de Mayo, contractions started. We went to our morning o.b. appointment where we were sent on to the hospital. By 12:13 p.m., we were parents to another beautiful boy, Kieron Scott King. He was 8 lbs, 4 oz and 20 in long.
Avery was thrilled to meet his little brother that evening. He burst into the room exclaiming, “hi Kieron, I’m your big brother!” We know the novelty will wear off, but for now it’s pretty sweet to watch them together. We’ve been home from the hospital since Friday and are slowly acclimating to life with a newborn and a preschooler.
