3 Months Ago...

My little pooper was in here...
In my belly, not the 2nd part of my chin. Although, if you saw me now, you'd probably think I was still pregnant. But thank goodness this post isn't about my weight loss. It's about Jake, who's 3 months old today! I celebrated with a hot fudge sundae, hopefully he'll enjoy it too :)
I never imagined how much life was going to change. In the last 3 months, I have finally learned how to be a mom, and I must say, I'm doing a great job. And child birth, for the record, is MUCH MUCH MUCH worse than everyone says. "Oh it's not that bad" or "you'll forget about it." Yeah right, I still feel the pain. How come no one told me the truth? I think I'd rather get run over by a bus than to go thru that again. We'll see how many siblings Jakey gets.
But anyways, I'm so proud of my little guy. He's already rolling from tummy to back & back to tummy.
When I tell him I love him, he says it back, even if it's only "goooo." He poops & pees in & on everything, and I mean EVERYthing. I do laundry like it's no one's business. He loves our walks when the weather permits & he hardly ever fusses in the bath.
I guess all that makes up for him waking me up every 2 hours at night to eat. So yes Melanie, he's going to co-sleep until that stops.
I wish I had more time to blog, but it's hard with just one hand. But I have been keeping up on everyone, I wish I had more of a chance to comment. BTW, we love our Brown Bear book Rebecca & Holly, the car seat toy is a life saver when he's fussy. 70% of the time, it works every time!!
Until next time, Happy 3 Months Jake! Mommy & Daddy love you!

I KNOW it wasn't *me* who would've said "It's not that bad." Nope. Part of the reason I bawled when I found out I was pregnant the 5th time is because I JUST COULDN'T GO THROUGH ONE MORE LABOR AGAIN.

Hayden came c-section. The moral is: be careful what you pray for.

I know I've said it before, but It's true more than ever : HE'S SO STINKIN' ADORABLE!! Hang in there....6 months old (or as soon as they can sit up in a shopping cart) is like SWEET FREEDOM!

Well now I feel bad because I'm sure I said it wasn't that bad. Dang! A few more months and hopefully you'll be starting to sleep through the night like a normal person... or is there any normal ever again? Maybe not.

He is SUCH a CUTIE!!! (too bad he looks like his dad, ha!)
