Just the two of us

I was going to post a picture of me and Jack going on a nice little walk today, but unfortunately 3 blocks from home Jack decided he had had enough and started freaking out. I finally picked him up to calm him down and he passed right out in my arms so I wound up carrying him home in one arm and pushing the stroller with the other. It was a highly ineffective walk other than I got to say hi to a few neighbors and enjoy the sun and fresh air for a moment. We are definitely going to have to work on Jack's tolerance for the stroller.

Today was my first day at home with Jack and no outside help. I was a little nervous since I didn't get a ton of sleep last night, but he managed to sleep just long enough this morning for me to take a shower, then he kicked and wiggled happily on the bed long enough for me to get dressed. More than that I can't really ask for.

Sometime's he was happy.
He took some very nice naps.

And once in a while he got really mad. :)

Isn't it funny how suddenly the biggest things on your "you" to do list is shower and dress? Then eat, if you can... Welcome to motherhood, huh? He's a sweetie and it sounds like you're doing TERRIFIC! Hang in there!
