Titus Michael

This blog will probably include a lot of references to Titus, since he is the recipient of my attention for most of the day, so I thought I should start out by telling a little bit about him.

 Titus was born on July 31, 2010, at 2:04am. His actual due date was September 10th, but he was born 6 weeks early because my water broke, so the risk of infection was greater than the risk of being born prematurely.  He weighed 4 lb. 4 oz. and was 17 inches long, and he was just the cutest, tiniest baby I have ever seen. Titus spent 19 days in the NICU, where the doctors and nurses took great care of him. We praise God for keeping our tiny baby safe and healthy!

George and I decided to use cloth diapers. I primarily use BumGenius, and I also have a few Fuzzibunz, and I love them both :) Cloth is definitely a commitment, but it saves a lot of money and I think the cloth diapers feel a lot softer and cozier than disposables (thankfully I don't need to use them myself). If anyone has questions about cloth diapering I would be happy to answer them :)

In December we spent time with family and Titus and his cousin Andrew met for the first time! Andrew is about 2 months younger than Titus, which isn't much at all, and we are looking forward to the future when they will hopefully have fun playing together! We took some pictures of our adorable babies, but we couldn't get them to look at each other. Oh babies...

My little hoodlum :) (His eyes kind of look brown in this picture, but they are actually light blue)

 Titus loves bathtime!

Very intent on his cheerios

This smile makes all the sleepless nights and poopy diapers so worthwhile!
