1 Month with Baby J

One month ago, our lives changed forever, when we became a family of 4! 

I can't believe it has been a month already! I won't say that it has felt like he has been here forever, or that we can't remember what life was like beef baby J. It's been a month of adjustment and transition for the whole family.  We are all learning what it means to have a baby in the house again, and Michael especially is learning what it means to share his mama and daddy! 

Over the past month we have had the chance to get to know baby J and figure out his little personality. One thing we know is that he is a BUSY BOY! He runs everywhere! He is into everything! He climbs up on everything he can! He throws toys and kicks balls! He is just full of energy! 

But he is also a sweet baby! He loves to give hugs and kisses! He loves the dogs and wants to hug them all the time, sometimes a little too hard. 

He is always hungry! He eats all day long. He is a tiny little guy, and we are trying to get him to gain weight. He is still figuring out chewing some solid foods, but we are working on it. He loves spaghetti, beans, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, yogurt, applesauce, macaroni and cheese, oatmeal, watermelon, veggie straws, Cheerios, crackers, and goldfish. He would rather drink juice than water, and we have had to add some instant breakfast to his milk, to get him to drink more. 

He is a great sleeper! He takes at least one, 2 hour nap everyday, and sometimes a cat nap in the car in the afternoon. He goes to bed between 7-7:30 every night and sleeps till 7:30-8:30 every morning. 

He is a big talker, but doesn't say that many words yet. But he is always saying something! 

Life is definitely different with Baby J around, but we wouldn't trade it for anything! He is the answer to so many prayers and a huge blessing to our family.

finally remembered to read this newest blog, I can't wait until he gets to know me better and is happy to come get hugs and kisses from me. He is so much fun to have around. I know it is hard to all of a sudden have another family member 24 / 7, I am glad to see that things seem be adjusting well and like you said before long it will seen as if he has always been there. I am proud of how well Michael has taken on the responsibility of being Big Brother. Love you all, Mom
