Moving Pages!

I may have over estimated how much free time I would have to update this blog. So in order to provide more up-to-date pictures I recommended checking out my instagram. You don't need an account if you follow the link to If you have an account already then just follow me at selina_kyle. I will still use this blog in the future though!

("Selina Kyle" is a comic book reference. 10 points if you can guess from where.)

Eight Weeks / Two Months

James turned two months old today! These photos were taken last week when he was eight weeks old. He has so much more energy and loves to smile at everyone.

August so far

James is nearing eight weeks old! I will be doing an eight week update later on this week but in the meantime here are some great photos we've taken recently.

James at Four Weeks

James is almost a month old! I would say time flies, but it really doesn't seem to when you aren't sleeping all that much. James is spending more time awake each day. He spends his free time playing with his activity gym, getting licked in the face by Maka, and happily looking around the room. I'll add some more pictures once James officially hits one month this weekend.

James at Two Weeks

I'm a little behind on posting this, but James is  going through a little growth spurt and demanding all my attention. I'm actually holding him as I type this because he doesn't ever want to be put down.
James is growing fast. We had our first followup appointment with the doctor on Wednesday. He now weighs over 8 lbs 11 oz and is a little over 20 inches long. The doctor says he is perfectly healthy and doing great. James is also so much more alert and likes to spend time just looking around the room.

Hello there.


Thank you, Keiko, for the cute clothes from Japan.

Don't worry. Sammy is here.

Best friends

Don't forget about Maka!

And then they started to play. End of photoshoot.

James at One Week

James is now one week old! We are still adjusting to having a new member in the family, but so far things are going pretty great. Here are a few photos we took to commemorate this day.

Sammy decided to jump in on James' photoshoot last night.

James Tiberius Boston is finally here! He was born at 11am June 2, 2014 at Womack Army Medical Center in Fayetteville, NC. He weighed a whopping 8 lbs 1 oz and measured 20 inches long.

James likes include milk, dogs, car rides, and keeping his parents up at night. His dislikes include pooping and clothing changes.

Here are some pictures from his first few days. (Please do not repost these pictures to other pages.) And keep checking back as will be adding plenty more pictures and updates.

No big deal.

Sammy and Maka are helping me relax.

My Nephew Makes his Debut

Calvin and I are a proud aunt and uncle! My brother and his wife welcomed their first child last night. I hope I can get a chance to meet him before our little one comes, but at 38 weeks I don't know if a 2 hour drive is a good idea.

Welcoming Our Newest Family Member

No, James isn't here yet, but we did get a new puppy! Her name is Maka ("beloved one") and she is a 5 month old husky-lab mix. Her original owner couldn't take her on his return trip home to Hawaii so we offered to take her in.
So far Sammy and Maka get along great! They both love to run around outside and take lots of naps. I'm glad Sammy will have a friend here once the baby does come.

Maka was a little shy around Sammy at first.

Calvin and Maka got along great in no time.

Sammy is worn out after chasing Maka all morning.
