Quick! While he’s sleeping

God, it’s been a month. How did that happen?! He’s a love. The best baby we could have asked for. He loves fleece upon fleece, hates to be cold – a true AZ boy. He loves to smile and fart and thinks it’s hilarious when he pees on his Dad. We’ve gone a ton of places with him already: brunches, walks, doctors appointments, mom groups, work visit, Target and then Target and then Target again. He has a cold already =( But he won’t let that stop him from sleeping or smiling or being┬áhis delightful self.

We went to the doctor yesterday and he’s 9lbs 13oz. Breastfeeding has been insanely hard for me, but he’s eating well and gaining weight, so there’s that – yay, Jack! And it seems we are getting over that painful hump.

I still want to write our birth story at some point, but I need to enroll in health care and he might wake up soon.

Here’s a bunch of pictures and a couple videos from last night. What kid likes to have his snot sucked? Jack!

      Thank you, Angella! We are all so lucky to have each other! He is the sweetest boy. So so happy! I can’t imagine Jack being anyone else. I’m so excited to see him grow up! xoxo

    Or maybe I should say what a wise boy Jack is to have CHOSEN you as his mother. And Pat as his father, too, I’m sure.

    Exactly what Angella said. He is a perfect, beautiful, happy boy. And can I tell you that Jessie used to laugh when I did the snot-sucking on her too? And look how nicely she turned out…
    Blessings have been bestowed upon your house and your home. I can’t even tell you how happy I am for you and your incredibly awesomely powerfully beautiful family.

      Thank you so much, Mary. He’s such a joy. I have one month left with him before I’m back to the real world, but at least my real world has gotten that much better because of him. xoxo
