The fact that I’m posting Jack’s 5-month picture on the 11th instead of the 5th should be a good indication of just how hard 10 minutes is to come by.
Time is flying by so much quicker with Jack than it was with Ellie, likely amplified by the fact that we’re taking care of two children and getting much less sleep than we did with Ellie. Either way, Jack is a lot of fun and we can’t wait for him to hit six months soon. Continue reading “Jack’s 5-month picture”
Despite Jack only being born yesterday, he is apparently already 4 months old. He continues to grow at a rapid pace and we’re just trying to keep up as best as we can. Continue reading “Jack’s 4-month picture”
It’s hard to believe that Jack is already 3 months old, but indeed it’s true. Jack celebrated by ditching the fussiness that defined his mood for the past 10 days and brought back the cheery smile that we know and love. Continue reading “Jack’s 3-month picture”
Jack is now 2 months old and we’re very much loving the little guy that he’s become. He’s so happy and cheery and loves to show off his gorgeous smile.
We also have noticed lately, by looking back at older photos of Ellie (like these or these) just how much they look alike. And for a fun comparison, here’s Ellie’s 2-month picture. Continue reading “Jack’s 2-month picture”
Jack is now a whole month old. Life has been so crazy since his birth that for the most part it just seems like he should be much older.
He’s definitely growing quickly though and faster than average. He could lift his own head from birth, hold it up from about 3 weeks and has been smiling for the past week when he sees us. Continue reading “Jack’s 1-month picture”
We’re a couple of days late, but nonetheless, here is Jack’s 3-week picture. _
It’s been a few days since I last posted an update, but that’s because it’s quite a busy job parenting two children! Also, I went back to work this week, though I’m starting off with half days to ease back into things.
We can’t believe how much Jack is changing from day to day: he’s really starting to take on his own appearance and looks vastly different from his newborn and 1-week photos. Continue reading “Jack’s 2-week picture”
Last night, Jack officially turned 1 week old. It’s been a long week as we’ve been adjusting to life with children and getting used to waking up throughout the night again, but it’s been a blessing all the same. Continue reading “Jack’s 1-week picture”
Being that Jack was born at 7.05pm, Ellie was already sleep when he arrived, so it wasn’t until the following morning that he got to meet her.
I think it’s very apparent from this video that she’s going to be an amazing big sister to Jack and that they’re going to have a very special relationship as they grow up together. Continue reading “Meeting Ellie for the first time [VIDEO]”
Jack was born in the beauty and calm of his own home at 7.05pm on 5/5/15. Martina did an amazing job and both she and Jack are perfectly healthy. He weighed 9lbs 11oz and measured 24 ¼” long.
