He weighs in at...

Friday, Malakai had a weigh in appointment. He weighed 8 lbs, 7 oz!!!!! Meaning he gained 3 ounces in 2 days, which is 1 more ounce than what they wanted. Now he is only 8 ounces away from his birth weight. Praise God!!
Milo, my dog, and Malakai are getting along great. Milo only gets jealous once in awhile, otherwise he looks at Malakai as his. If Malakai starts fussing, Milo goes nuts. It is the cutest thing. The other night I got a great picture of Milo and Malakai.
In this one, Milo is curious about Malakai eating. Normally we tell Milo to get down, but this picture was just to cute!!
Yesterday, my Aunt (in the middle) had a meet Malakai party, aka baby shower! He slept most of the time. My cousin (on the left) and my Aunt got him a bath towel with a hood. On the hood it is a frog. When I was in the hospital, anytime I would hold Malakai, he would scrunch his legs up. Well, he looked like a frog when he did this and I gave him the nickname of my frog.
This is a 5 generation picture. My Uncle is standing in for my dad because he wasn't there. But how cool is it to have 5 generations! A lot of people haven't had the chance to see Malakai with his eyes open. He does tend to sleep a lot and whenever he takes a car ride, he is out like a rock. So I thought I would post a picture of him with his eyes open. Great Grandpa Ken got to see his eyes for the first time yesterday.
Aunt Gale...I still don't have the picture for you. I am still holding you in suspense, but I did post some different ones!! Anyway, time to eat! I will work on getting the special picture.
Have a great day and God Bless!!

I finally remembered to check your blog and lo and behold a new picture of my Great Grandson! I am so jealous his other great grandparents can see him and hold him. I don't know when we will be there to visit so keep sending pics either on your blog or to my email address. He is so handsome. I am so proud of you and Eric and your son. I put something in the mail for you all today so watch for the mailman.

Love to all, Grandma Barbie
