Memorial Weekend

Over Memorial weekend B and I took the little man to the cabin for the first time. We were very nervous as to how he would be on the ride up and how he would sleep. He was great on the way up and for the first time in his life he slept through the night. Mommy and Daddy were so happy. He slept through the night the second night as well. The third night he woke up once but went back to sleep right away. All that fresh air did him good. Unfortunately the poor little guy was very backed up so he was a tad on the crabby side. I felt so bad because he didn't feel good but for the most part he was a good little boy. Mom and Dad had a blast too. B went fishing with my Brother Jay and I got to spend time with my family. We stayed up late the first two nights by the fire. Good thing the baby slept so good so Mom and Dad didn't have to get up or we would have been two tired parents. On top of everything Gizmo was the best dog. We were shocked. There was a ton of dogs up there and he did a great job. YAY. The whole family had a great time. Here are some pictures from the weekend.

3 Months

Happy 3 month Birthday Jacob!!!

I can't believe that you are 3 months already. WOW!! You are getting so big. Everyday you change and Daddy and I love to watch you coo and play. You make the funniest faces and noises. You love to lay on the couch with Mom in the morning and play. You love sucking on your fingers and it keeps you pretty content for a while. You are up to about 15 pounds but I used our scale so it might not be that accurate. You are wearing 3-6 month outfits and you are getting sooooo tall. You still nurse about every two hours. We give you one 4 ounce bottle during the day and one before bed just to make sure you are getting full enough. Your bed time is 8 pm but sometimes it takes until 8:30-9 to get you down for the night. You are still waking up twice a night which I am trying to break you of but you just love to eat. You wake up between 6-8 and love to play with Mommy before your morning nap.
You are a blessing to us. You make us smile with your funny faces and noises. We love you so much.

Yesterday Mommy took you for your first walk without the car seat in the stroller. You loved it.
Here you are at the beginning of our walk.. All smiles...

15 minutes later you passed out.. You must of loved the fresh air.

We look forward to the months to come and all the new things you will learn. Mommy is so excited for you to start cereal next month and then baby food the month after. This is going to be a fun summer..
Love you,

New Pictures

Brent got me a new camera phone for my Birthday and I actually just got around to picking it up yesterday and it's wonderful. I wanted a phone that took great pictures because I am constantly taking pictures of Jacob and like the convenience of using my phone to take them. I've posted a bunch of pictures before that were taken with my old phone and they were not the best quality.
Here is a picture of Jacob in his new Toy. He is holding his head up so good now. I can't believe how fast they grow up.

Morning play time with Mama. Every morning we sit on the couch and play. He is a very happy baby. Last week he was not feeling well and for at least 5 days he was so crabby I was about to pull my hair out but it didn't take him long to get back to his happy self.

Happy Mothers Day!!

It's my first Mothers Day. It's so exciting. I feel sorta like it's my birthday or something. Brent gave me cards from him and the baby and they were so cute. I cried. Brent is gone all weekend because for some reason some MAN decided to make fishing opener on Mothers Day weekend. I could have put up a fight with Brent and made him stay with me for my first Mothers Day but he has been going up to the same place for 20 years so we decided to celebrate when he gets home.

Last night the baby only woke up ONCE to eat.. YAY!!!! He went to bed at 9:30 and woke up at 12:45 to eat then went back down at 1 until 6 am... This is a first for him and I couldn't ask for a better Mothers Day present.

Happy Mothers Day to everyone.

I will leave you with some cute pictures of Jake after our bath..

The other day B and I brought little Jacob to the doctor for his 2 month shots. He was so happy to be there..talking and smiling.. Little did he know what would happen. UGH. My heart broke the minute he let out that first cry. It was like someone had tried to kill him. I wanted to cry but held it back. He only cried for a few minutes but it was enough to break Mom and Dads hearts. The doctor said that Jacob is thriving and seems to be a very happy baby. She said that she can see how happy he makes us. That just melted my heart hearing that.
My doctor has been my doctor since I was a kid and is my Mom and Grandma's doctor as well. I was so happy she was able to deliver my baby and is now his doctor too.

Jacob is 12.12 pounds and is 23 inches long. He is growing so fast. Everyday he changes. He is now so vocal. Every morning we lay on the couch and he just talks to me for at least an hour and then he will just fall asleep. It's the funniest thing ever. He is still eating every two hours but we are breast feeding and he is a snacker. I would love to break him of that. At night he gets a formula bottle before bed. He can usually eat about 4-6 ounces. He goes to sleep pretty good at about 8 every night and wakes up between 12:30 and 1:30. I then feed him and he is back to sleep until about 4 am. He wakes up for the morning at 7 am. I would really like to get him down to only waking once a night. Someday... I hope. I've been working every day on getting him on a schedule. He is taking a morning nap in his crib now and his afternoon nap is sometimes in the crib and sometimes with me. Every day we get closer.

He is the best thing to happen to us. He makes us smile everyday. The love I feel for him is like nothing I've ever felt.

I haven't uploaded pictures from my camera but I this one is from my phone. Not the best quality but still cute.

Soon he will get his 3 month pictures done professionally. I can't wait.
