Ashley's dance recital

This is Ashley's dance concert. Thanks Angi for making it the most memorable dance recital I have been to. I was not aware that it was possible to teach a three-year-old the "robot!"

Our brother's keepers

The girls really love to help out. They are doing a great job and helping out.

4 weeks later

Life is still crazy around here. I call it the Giles family circus. I'm trying to keep a sense of humor. Sometimes it helps and sometimes I just cry. Despite a huge lack of sleep we are truly enjoying our sweet angel!! Max has the sweetest disposition. He still LOVES to eat and he still HATES taking a bath. He is showing that he is a boy through and through at such a young age!!

Little Max arrived strong a beautiful on April 25 at 1:44 pm. He started knocking on the door after breakfast and he was here in time for lunch, just like we planned it. He is a very calm baby and enjoys his time sleeping and eating. Bath time or diaper changing time is not his favorite but he will appreciate it soon, we hope.

Our two bedroom apartment is bursting at the seems with all of the great stuff that comes along with a new baby. All of our friends have been so generous with their time and food. We really appreciate the help. Reinforcements, Carol's mom, arrived on Saturday so hopefully we can all get a little more sleep this week. Thank you all for the gifts and support. We will keep you updated as our little family grows.

Max's sisters love spending time with him and are very helpful. They hold him every chance they get.
