Hello again! I can't make any promises for regular posting, but I'll get there! We're still trying to get this baby thing figured out over here :) I don't know how you super-moms do it with your once a day posting. I feel like I have to decide if I want to eat, shower, get a couple things done at home, or nap when Jaqs is napping! I know it'll be different when she's on a more set schedule and sleeping through the night, but for now, I'm a little tired! But I'm sure that's a given...how many moms of newborns are well-rested? Zero.
Jaqs LOVES to nap on the chest of mommy, daddy, G-Pop, or Grammie. It must be soothing to her, and I can't blame her! Sweet girl.
Baby girl made her first road trip last week, and she did great! She slept the whole 3 hour trip both there and back after filling up her tummy. Rob had track and football last weekend, so we went to Abilene so we didn't have to spend the weekend alone. We had a lot of fun, but we sure missed daddy!
Jaqs got to meet Natalie, and I think Natalie was smitten with our girl! She was ready to babysit after getting to hold her ;) It doesn't seem like long ago when Natalie was this tiny, and now she's 4.5! Why does time fly by so quickly??
Jaqs loves her paci! She usually has her hand over it like this:
Momma & baby ready to go shopping with Grammie :)
I could just eat her up! Sweet thing.
My dad had to work much of the time we were in Abilene, so he came back to Temple with us for a couple days to hang out, and we're so glad he did! Being alone all day gets pretty lonely, so it's been nice to have him here :) It makes it a lot easier to get things done when you've got an extra set of arms that are ready and willing to help!
My mom is a jewel. She let me sleep through the night TWICE while we were in Abilene...it was wonderful. I got some bottles pumped, so she got up with Jaqs while I got rested up. I definitely woke up feeling good but ready to feed, if ya know what I mean ;) Yowza.
Thank you Grammie!!
Spring football is in full swing around here, so that means Rob is gone from home from about 5:15 a.m.-7:45 p.m. Sad!! It's hard on all of us! Last year we had to do the long-distance thing for Spring ball in the midst of a move, and this year we have a newborn! Maybe next year will be a little more manageable. I definitely do NOT want to wish our baby girl's life away, but we are sure looking forward to summer when we have a little more time with daddy. Then time could just stand still awhile ;) Oh, it doesn't work like that, does it? Dang.
In other news, I had Jaqs' birth story about ready to be published, and I started messing with the placement of pictures when Blogger suddenly deleted parts of my post! UGH!!! So frustrating to me. I don't like the changes! So once I figure out what's been deleted, I'll finally be able to get that posted.
Jaqs is grunting in her swing, gearing up for her next meal, so I better run!
Thanks for hanging in there with us :)
