1 Month Milestones

Wow time flies! Jace has been a member of our family for one whole month now. I can't believe it. It has gone so fast -- yet it doesn't feel like we were ever without him. I'm sure Joe would agree that we are so much better people with him in our lives. We love him so so much!

At 1 Month I Can ...

Jace is becoming so much more alert and will stay awake for hours at a time. Every morning after we eat we do our exercises and read a story. He always loves to do his exercises. (basically I just move his legs in a bicycle motion, use his arms to punch and stretch tall. This is "supposed" to help build muscle tone because of resistance -- more than anything it is just fun! I'll post a video sometime.) He doesn't cry very often at all and when he does he can be comforted easily. He loves the sound of Mommy singing (which is good -- not everyone does!) He sleeps best when cuddling up with someone (we are working on that). He rarely cries when he gets his diaper changed and is eating like a pro! Mostly he eats from his mom, but we still supplement several times a day -- just when he asks for it. He loves attention and is ... spoiled spoiled spoiled! He is such a sweet good little baby.

Too cute! I can't believe that he is already a month old! We miss you around here, but glad that you get to spend time with your little one. I can't wait to spend this summer with our boys playing together!

He's such a doll! Love it! I survived Tax Season! I'm back at work, but thinking about leaving shortly! LOL! I need a nap! We'd love to dinner :) I still can't believe we haven't yet. We're such bad neighbors! I promise to be better :)

I love the baby! Can't wait to see him again! They change so much so fast when they are so tiny like this...I can't help it, I am smitten too...but I don't demand the baby's attention...I just like to hang with him.

Jace is so bright-eyed! Looks like he might have grown even since we saw him!!! What an amazing little boy you have. Am glad you are enjoying being Mommy. How fun!
