Isn't that the greatest smile!!?? It says "hey baby" and "ain't I adorable" all at once and I can't decide if it is good or bad or both but I don't care. Jake is now 4 months old, 15 pounds 13 ounces and 24.5 inches long. He seems huge to us and yet he's only running 50% in weight and 25% in height. He was baptized in early August and we spent wonderful time with family.
Aunt Mary Anne read LOTS of stories.
Pops got lots of baby love from all the babies there.
And we took grab family pictures with everyone smiling and looking at the camera. Who would have thought that was possible?
With the Godparents, we are so proud to have such strong and caring people in his life.
This is what is looks like when Dave works to 11pm one night and has to be at work at 7am the next day. He makes it to about 9pm and then they all quit.
And my girls are going to school!!! They go for 3 hours 3 days a week and they love it. They get in the car and Samantha especially talks nonstop about what they did and their new friends and what they ate for snack (or didn't eat). Their teachers said that they are nice and polite and seemed very comfortable, which makes us happy and proud. We both have mixed feelings about dropping them off in the morning. They don't even say good bye, they just hang up their backpacks and say hi to their teachers and go in and get playing with their friends. It makes us feel wonderful that they are excited about school and independent and happy, but a little sad that they don't miss us. Don't they need me? Yes. I keep reminding myself that you always need your parents, no matter how old you are and they know that deep inside, even if it isn't a fully realized thought yet. So look forward to updates about what the girls are saying about school and what Jake is eating, going to try to start bananas and sweet potatoes soon. Yum!
