Our baby boy is here, and we are all over the moon! He made his arrival on his due date, March 28th, at 2:05 am, weighing in at 8 lbs 1 oz (I’ll share his birth story soon). He surprised us with a head full of brown hair – a mama’s boy! He’s named after his dad, “Fields,” which is short for Scofield. But I have a bet going he’s gonna be a lot more like me ;).
Piper is adjusting so well. She loves being a little mommy and takes her role as big sister very seriously. Whenever he cries, she says “oh no! I get his paci” and will bring his paci to him. Or, she’ll come up and go “shhhh shhh, it’s okay buddy.” Before bed, she’ll come give him a kiss and say “I love you baby boy.” And the first thing she asks every morning is “where’s baby boy?” She is such a good helper!
As far as looks go, Piper and Fields are little newborn clones. We’ve been comparing pictures of them, and they look so similar except for the hair color.
It’s amazing how having a little boy is already so different from having a little girl. He eats so much.. so so much. Way more than Piper ever did. For the first couple of days, he was wanting to nurse around the clock. Which is why he’s already a whopping 7 ounces over his birth weight, ha.
I still can’t believe that these two little ones are ours, and we have two kids! There is truly nothing like it. We are settling into life as a family of four, and soaking in every moment of these early days together.
