I love him more and more everyday... And yes that is possible. Becoming a mother is the best gift I have ever been given. It's the hardest thing I have ever done, but its the most rewarding.
Jake is 9lbs and 13 oz (as of Tuesday), and he is now wearing size 1 diapers. He's getting pretty darn big.
It's been so hot here in CA so J has been lounging in his diaper a lot lately. I haven't really been swaddling him because he hates it. However, I now have 3 Swaddle Me's and a miracle blanket I will now try. Is it bad to swaddle with the arms out? Or not swaddle at all? My little man squirms around so much the blanket falls off! He hates it... I mean, he will yell out when I begin to swaddle. He likes his arms over his head, and his legs stretched out... Can you blame him? Poor thing was Frank Breech for 3 months!
This weekend Grant and I will have our first babysitter look after Jake. We are going to Grant's friend Brian's wedding. We wont be able to make the ceremony, but we will be attending the reception. Jake can only have one bottle so I'm we are planning on having the sitter come from 4:30pm - 8:30pm. This is a big deal for me. He can only have one bottle because he is only 4 weeks and because the lactation specialist said that may cause him more gas. WE DON'T NEED ANYMORE GAS. Poor little man.
Anyhow, things have been good. He is no longer sleeping like he was in the beginning. After doing LOTS of reading and talking to other moms this is normal. They will tend to sleep less at this point and then begin to sleep again in a few more weeks. YIKES. I'm up most the day and night... with an occasional nap. The naps are hard because I find myself catching up with laundry, cleaning up, and oh I don't know...eating?! But, I know this gets better. I'm wondering how moms with twins do it. Kudos to you all!
I have been getting lots of messages from family/friends asking how I'm healing and asking about c-sections. I'm doing great! Every day is better! The first week was the toughest and you will need help. Other than that... it's not so bad! Take a look at my other blogs for more information I've posted... or give me a call... I'll tell you more! Thank you all for asking about my health!
Well, nothing more to report. He's growing and gaining weight above average, and he looks even more like his daddy. I can't wait to see how he changes from month to month!
Here are some pictures from over the week:

No more pictures mom!
I know... I'm cute!
YAY! STRETCHING OUT!
Love and cheers,
