Adventures In Nursing...

It's been such a joy to nurse my third child. The first two just never got it but Jacob just seems to have no problem. I just love feeding him and looking at his precious face! It's amazing that God created such a special bond between a Mommy and her baby!

Here's where it gets interesting though... Josh and Seth! It's been funny to see their reactions to the whole nursing thing. I don't try to hide any of it from them because I don't want them to feel like it's a secret or naughty thing. It's just a wonderful and natural part of life and one day they'll understand that.

Here's a conversation I had with Josh (almost 6) recently...

Josh ~ Wait a minute!
Me ~ What?
Josh ~ You mean to tell me that both of those things work?!
Me ~ Yeah.
Josh ~ Ugh, I thought only one of them worked!

He just cracks me up some days!!

Lots going on...

I feel like it's been forever since I posted anything on here. I'm so sorry! I've been busy taking care of three kids, a house and a husband which is more important.

Today is the two week mark since Jacob was born. It's already going too fast! We're both doing great and haven't had to make too many adjustment in the house. Seth and Josh are great big brothers and just want to love on him for the most part. We just have to remind them of how small he is still. I know they are just trying to figure it all out for themselves!

Here are some pictures of what's been going on...

Here Jacob is at about 8 days old

This is him getting washed up. Not his first bath but just washing up.

He loves laying in his boppy all snuggled up

Big Brothers in the hospital bed with him

Josh's shirt says "biggest brother" and Seth's says "big brother."
Thanks Grandma for those cute shirts!

Caught Seth trying to sneak strawberries out of the fridge...
