Good Night Sweetheart...

Jake turned 7 weeks old yesterday. Though the actual day itself didn't contain much out of the ordinary, Jake decided to start and finish it with a bang. The morning started off with a HUGE diaper containment breach (I'll spare you the gory details) and then our sweet little son puked down my back when I picked him up off the changing table. Lovely, eh? My mother did warn me about making sure to have a burb cloth on my shoulder. LOL. And the grand finisher was (drum roll please...) his first time ever sleeping through the night. He went 7 hours without getting us up to eat!! Good job Jake!! (Though I'll tell you, Brian and I didn't sleep the whole night--getting up to make sure the baby was still breathing. LOL. The joys and stresses of being first-time parents.) I'm not holding my breath that he'll consistently sleep through the night from here on out, but it does mean we're getting closer to that time.

Bouncin' Baby Boy

It's fun to watch as Jake is getting more and more active. Three weeks ago we had to bounce the chair with him in it, and now he moves himself and bats away at the toys.

He's a growing boy!

Our little man is getting bigger day by day, it seems. He's going through another growth spurt, which means all he wants to do is eat(!!!). It's amazing to me to watch him fill out as he gains weight. He's no longer that long, lanky baby we brought home from the hospital, and it wasn't even 6 weeks ago. Our check up at the doctor's office this Friday will tell just how much he's gained...our guess is he weighs somewhere in the neighborhood of 10-11 lbs.

What a Cutie!!

Don't you just want to kiss that belly??!

Baby Jake

Our precious Jacob Cole Miller was born on July 11, 2008 after 40+ hours of unsuccessful labor and ultimately a cesarean section. He weighed 7 lbs 11oz and measured 20 inches in length. One month later, he's growing like a weed and spending more and more time awake and alert...there's so much out there and he doesn't want to miss a moment! Sometimes we still feel as tired as we look in the delivery room pictures, though Jake does let Mom and Dad sleep for a couple of hours at a time during the night. We can't wait for the time when we can all sleep through the night.

Blogging, eh?

So, you want to know the latest and greatest at my house? You say you want updated pics of the baby (and maybe his parents, too)? Well, after some convincing from friends, I've decided to give this blogging thing a try. We can only hope that it will satisfy that "wanna know" itch and keep us all better connected. And it will make it easier for me to link to everyone else's blog so I can stay updated on the happenings with all of you.
