Peter is no longer the youngest Stayner baby (his stint in the spot lasted only two weeks) thanks to the birth of the adorable Amanda Jane, shown above. She was born exactly two weeks after Peter, on Friday, February 23. She weighed in at 7 pounds 1 ounce and is 19 1/2 inches long. Yay for babies! And congrats to Katie and Josh, the proud parents (who are happy to welcome a little girl after three boys! Yay!).
Peter is still cute as ever. He's now more than two weeks old and it's crazy how fast he's growing already. When he was first born, he pretty much just ate and slept . . . and that was about all the interaction we got with him. Now he loves to be awake (during the day; somehow he already knows his days and nights, hooray!) and play. We sing to him, show him toys and blocks, talk to him, read to him, etc., and he is very good at showing us if he's happy or sad. He even has flashed us an adorable smile on occasion (see the pic to the left!). Ahh, how we love this little boy.
In law school news, Robert has been accepted to University of Illinois and was offered a scholarship, yay! He also has heard from Northwestern; his application is on "hold" there, meaning that they are going to let their first choice people in, then if they have a spot for him . . . they'll let him in. We'll see. No word yet from Stanford, U of Chicago, UCLA, or Temple. We'll keep you posted.
Thanks for reading, sorry this is long, but have a great day! (-Jocelyn)
PS- Here's another cute shot of Robert and Peter, my "boys." I love them both so!
