Julia's Cute

Julia is a cute girl. I mean, she's got the desirable chubby legs every baby wants, a cute smile and head full of hair with very little cradle cap ( or cradle crap as we call it in our house). Since we all know Julia is a cutie she's already encountered her first boy problem.... boys. She's got two lined up... and Dan and I are happy. Here are some pictures of the baby.

LIAM (Anna & Tom's Cutie Baby (2 weeks younger than Julia) -- My mom says this is NOT a good picture)

I do love this picture though! Joseph (Huge boy. 6 weeks older than Julia)(18 lbs & 25 inches long) How Dan Feeds Julia Check Out the Attitude On This Girl During Her First Bath (She loved it.... We thought until we realized that she was flicking off the camera.) Her Bumbo Chair. She loves it! This video makes me laugh. You have to listen really close to the end after I ask her if she is having fun. Julia is such a McEwen.

It seems like my going rate is updating my blog every month.

I have a two month old. Are you serious? The really cool thing is, Dan and I haven't even messed her up to much yet.

Life is great. Truly. Julia is huge and short. 10 lbs 8 oz and 21 3/4 inches long. I still adore her though. She's pretty content - ALWAYS and the cutest thing is, she's just learned to pout.

I've been super busy. I picked up a nanny job watching a little girl (Zoe) who is just three days older than Julia (people always say, "that's a lot like having twins...) It is and I enjoy it but, I've decided one kid at a time is probably the most sane way for me to have children (how do you manage, Ana?)

I feel like I have adjusted well with managing my time (besides neglecting my blog) to the whole parenting thing... I'm excited to get back into the swing of school too. I did manage to pull and "A" out of my one class I took last semester but, I am still pleased. So far -- so good.

Oh one thing that kind of stinks is living in Charlotte. I've realized more so now how much nicer it would be to live close to family or friends that we knew well. We WILL move back.... I love Raleigh.
