Time Flies...



Okay, okay, I know it is pretty pathetic that the last time i posted was about 8 months ago. I guess it's about time to update now that our lives are COMPLETELY different than the last time I updated. My 2nd grade teacher used to always say "How time flies when you're havin fun and workin hard". Boy is that a true statement! We are now living in Glendale while Jake goes to Midwestern for medical school, and I am pretty much a single mom. I never get to see him hardly because he is just constantly studying. It's hard at times, but I am so proud of him and how well he is doing!
Well, obviously I have had my baby, and he's not a tiny baby anymore! Jones turned 4 months last week and it makes me so sad that he's getting so big so fast! We started feeding him rice cereal last week, and as I looked at the baby bowls, spoons, bibs, and food on the counter, I couldn't help but want to freeze time so he stops growing up so fast! Jones is such a good, laid back baby- we are pretty spoiled. At his 4 month appointment, he weighed 14 lbs 8 oz (40%) and is 26 in. tall (75%). He is such a happy boy, and I feel so blessed to be his mom. I always knew that I would love being a mom, and was so excited for that day, but you can't comprehend the joy it brings and the amount of love you have for your child until it happens to you. It can't be put into words, but all I know is that nothing makes me happier. Yes, there are times I want to scream, and it's not always easy, but the moment he looks up at me with that huge smile and perfect dimples, all those feelings of being overwhelmed disappear. I LOVE being a mom. Here are some pictures to update, and I'll try update more than every 8 months! :)




Him and his cousin are 1 week apart. SO fun!

p.s. I'm going to be an aunt again! Hooray! Congrats Hud and Court! :)

Congrats Kalli! You're baby is so cute. And thanks for your insights and "real" perspective on what it's like to be a mom. You're a great example to the rest of us.

He is so cute! I love how you decorated the nursery, did you make the bedding or where did you find it?

That baby is too cute! I love seeing new pictures of him on facebook. Although I do have to say my favorite is the video of him watching Baby Einsteins. How fun!
