Maleina & Abram Love Each Other post down and a million to go!

There's something so special about siblings isn't there? There is a special connection and bond that is so different from the parent-child bond. I remember when we told Maleina I was pregnant and her first response was "Yes, now I don't have to be alone"! At first I laughed at her drama, and then in my over-analysis of everything, I started really thinking about what she said. She certainly is not alone, but something about having a sibling was going to be so different and special for her. This so far has proven to be true. Yes, I know Abram is young and they can't fight yet, but I am so enjoying their love for each other. He lights up when she walks into the room and she loves to hug him, kiss him, and of course entertain him in true Maleina style.

Abram is 5 months old and a true blessing! He is happy go lucky, sweet, smiley and a joy to be around. He loves to talk, laugh, eat, chew on his fingers, play with his feet, watch his sister, and giggle at his silly daddy. He was 15 lbs (54th percentile) at his 4 month appointment and I'm sure he packed on a few more since then. He was in the 60th percentile for his height at 25 1/4 inches. And in true Newsome style his head is in the 68th percentile...a little small compared to Maleina who averaged in the 90 percentile! But he still has a big noggin!

A few side notes: Beware, some of these pics are pretty old and can be recognized by Abram's hair of lack there of! Also, much to Anthony's disdain, I have affectionately nicknamed Abram, Abro. You will see my term of endearment on many captions to come!
