We love the weekend!!!!

Its Friday and time for Daddy to come home from work and go out for dinner!!! Tonight its Goode & Co for some ritas! I had my first drink in over a year tonight...lets just say after two sips I was already feeling it! How pathetic!! I could only drink half of my drink. I gave the rest away to Kev and Stacy. Guess I'm a cheap date these days :)
Aunt Stacy had a meeting at Baylor in the med center so she came over after she was done and joined us for dinner. Thanks for coming to hang with us and for drinking the rest of my rita :)

I love PJ's!!

As a little girl one of my favorite thing was my pajamas, I loved them!!! If I could wear them to church I think I probably would have :)
So when I was pregnant I searched high and low for precious sweet pj's for our little guy. These little ones are my absolute favorite, they are still a little big, but I just had to put him in them!
He wasn't thrilled about them at first as you can see but I finally got him to sleep after a while :)

Grandma time......

Kudos to grandma for getting me this adorable outfit so that I am certain that everyone knows my name! :)
She came to visit us today and watched Jack for a little while so that I could go to the grocery store. I so wanted to go get a massage but I didn't have enough time, maybe next week when the Nanny is here. I'm sooooo sore! He is getting heavy!!
I adore these pictures of my mom with Jackson..and I must say the one of her looking down at Jackson totally looks like me looking down at my son! We look alike in that picture for sure!!

My Sweet Honey Bee!

Well last night we got some sleep!!! WHOOT WHOOT! Jack slept from 8pm - 12 am and then from 12:30 am - 3: 30 am and then again from 5:30 am-7:45am!!! Thank gosh! I also took a nap when the nanny came and I feel so much better! I purchased this little outfit in SanFran when I was visiting my friend Kristin. I adore this little outfit and the booties are from Edith and the blanky too!
He started loosing some hair up front so he kinda looks like a wrinkly old man or Benjamin Button...hahaha
I love the bottom right picture, he totally has some Jess attitude going on!!

OMG Im sooo tired .....

Just when I thought things were going great, Jack has decided that he doesnt want to sleep in his bed anymore. He fusses night and day and just wont ever go to sleep unless we come up with 8 million things before 1 works.....
Right now I have to feed him, then put him in the BabyBjorn take him for a walk while he falls asleep and then carefully take him out and put him in the swing so that he stays asleep...
Please tell me this phase ends soon? I want him to go to sleep in his bed again, even if its just a few hours at a time like before......

Oh got to go b/c guess what little toot is waking up again......

Perfect Little Angel!

Kevin and I took Jack to his 4 week check up, he is PERFECT! Dr. Janet Pate said that he is doing so well and he is gaining and growing on track. Today he weighed in at 8 lbs 12 oz!! (25 % amongst other boys his age), and he is 21 - 3/4 " long (50% amongst other boys his age). So we are growing fast! Here are some pictures with Dr. Pate and some close up shots of those pretty blue eyes....maybe they will stay, we shall see!
Thank you god for this amazing blessing of a healthy and happy little boy!
Happy 4 weeks baby Jack !!

King of the Castle!!!

The little man rules the house, so I thought it be appropriate to put him in his King for the Day outfit...thanks Debbie, Travis and Wes! The outfit it so fitting :)
I'm still loving the wrinkle face he makes, he looks just like Daddy when he does it! I tried to sit him up in the chair and he was doing actually ok, he is just getting to cute and big for words! Today we go to his 4 week checkup with Dr. Pate! I cant believe he is already 4 weeks - time does fly!!! Slow down little man! I don't want you to grow up so fast! Mommy enjoyed snuggling in bed with you this morning!! Love you Jack :)

Great Grandma Nanie

It's hard for me to think that there is a great grandma! But thats what my Nanie is to our sweet little Jack. It's such a blessing for her to be able to hold and be here to witness such a little miracle. We look forward to many more years ahead with you Nanie and we hope you adore your time with Jackson just as much as I do with you. Thank you for putting up with your grand daughter, aka, Stressy Jessy. We love you Nanie!!! xoxo Jess Kev and Jack!

Jackson - 20 days old. He did such a good job during bath time. We still have to give him wash downs until is belly cord falls off, then we can move to the big boy tub that we have for him. He was so good tonight!
