Meet Malorie's New Baby

He weighed in at six pounds, even.

Since getting home from the hospital, Malorie and Greg have been getting used to their new jobs as mom and dad.

They say little Moss doesn't cry too much, but he does have his moments.

"I'm not going to be a parent that says my child is perfect, he's great until about 4:30 and 6:00 every night, it's kind of his witching hour," says Malorie. During that time, strategy is everything.

"We load him up in the car seat and drive him through the neighborhood, it seems to work and just kind of follow the advice of doctors. I know a lot of parents have that and we can sympathize now," Malorie says.

Over a month old and Moss has been hitting a lot of milestones so far. "Last week he just started holding his own bottle and so he's not supposed to be doing that yet," says Malorie.

"It's pretty neat when you hold him and he opens his eyes and looks up at you," says Malorie's husband, Greg Bolton, "because then he does that smile and he just, it's pretty remarkable to see something like that."

He's already a sports fan, logging some time on the couch with dad. "You know it's funny because sometimes we're watching basketball and either Kansas or Nebraska is on. The dilemma is when they play each other then I think he's still rooting for the Huskers," says Greg.

Milton, the couple's Yorkie, has not been forgotten, and he's getting used to having Moss around. "He's been great around the baby and he went and got his hair cut yesterday, so he's still getting pampered, he's still getting spoiled, but it has been a little bit of an adjustment for him," says Malorie.

Both she and Greg are very thankful for all of the kind words and advice coming from Channel 6 viewers.

"We do have those jobs where it's such a great benefit when people take the time to do that. I've read each and every one of them, but i haven't had time to respond to all of them, but I do appreciate the emails and all of the kind notes and parenthood is going great and I'll be back at work soon," Malorie says.

Even though he's advancing and learning every day, these new parents aren't in a hurry for Moss to grow up.

They are getting ready to take him on his first road trip to Kansas, home of Malorie's beloved Jayhawks. Malorie says the trip is normally about 6 hours by vehicle, but they are planning for 8 this time.
