Welcome baby!

Did you start signing to him yet?
welcome Maximus!!! he is SO beautiful.
enjoy your babymoon
WOW what a beautiful baby, truly! Congrats on your little angel and your HB! I live in Astoria, not to far from Portland; baby's are close in age if you ever want to have a playdate!

When do you plan on teaching him signing? I just started learning Italian (becasue of my heritage) and I try to teach dd as well!
Welcome Maximus, you are beautiful!!
Congrats Ellie!

Thanks, everyone! It's been hard to find time to check in at MDC! We are getting the hang of the sling, though, so hopefully I'll be able to check in more.

Can't wait to start signing with him! I'll start as soonasI think he can focus on my hands a bit. It will be cool cause DH has been wanting to learn, so now he will have a real reason to.

We are still settling in and loving every moment (ok, maybe not the 3:00AM gas pain-crying moments!) with our new boy!
