It seems my new trend is to write about things months after they’ve happened. Why not, right? :)
Even though I’m not blogging full time right now I have still had so many sweet comments and emails from loyal readers wanting an update since my last post. So better late than never I’d like to introduce you to our sweet boy Milo Samuel.
Milo was born on March 16th, just over a week late the little stinker. Actually, he wasn’t little at all! Milo came in weighing 9 lbs 9 oz and 22 inches long. I will never forget the incredible, amazing experience of giving birth and seeing him for the first time. I feel beyond blessed to have had two unique, beautiful experiences in growing our family. Experiencing Savannah’s adoption and then the pregnancy/birth of Milo have brought me more joy than I can describe.
Milo is such a good natured, sweet baby. He has quite the set of lungs that he can put to good use crying when he is hungry or tired but besides that he is just content and happy. He is quick to smile and ready to laugh. He is a strong boy and started rolling over before he was three weeks old. It is amazing to watch him lift his head and push his feet and I have a feeling he will be scooting and crawling too soon.
Milo is named after my great-great-great-grandfather Edward Milo Webb. Edward Milo was a blacksmith in Nauvoo, Illinois and along with his brothers he ran the Webb Blacksmith Shop. They made hundreds, if not thousands, of wagons for pioneers going west. He then set out west himself following his faith. He was a man of integrity who lived his life in service to those around him and to the Lord. He is a perfect namesake for our little Milo along with his dad Sam. His dad is good, kind, and hardworking. Milo is lucky to be named after two great men.
Savannah has jumped into the role of being a good big sister. She was a bit wary at first of this squirmy, little thing that was taking away her mom’s attention but it didn’t take long for her to fall in love. Now she has to know where he is at all times and she is constantly smothering him with hugs and kisses.
Milo has the most kissable, squishy cheeks and chubby rolls all over his body. At three months he is already wearing 6-9 month clothing and is holding strong in the 99th percentile for height and weight.
I can’t believe it has already been three and a half months since we brought him home. He has changed so much since then! It has been an adjustment figuring out how to be mom to two kids but we’re making it through. I love watching Savannah love her brother and seeing Sam be the best daddy to both our children melts my heart. My little family is my whole world, and what a beautiful world it is.
