four weeks flew by...

it's hard to believe that jacob has been a part of this world for almost 5 weeks now! to be honest, i can't really remember what life was like before jacob. he is such an incredibly good baby. other than some bad bouts of gas, he pretty much just does the baby rotation of eating, sleeping and pooping. jacob is becoming quite the "foodie", as he tours some of our favorite spots...

one thing i definitely forgot from the first go-round of parenting, is just how much sleep deprivation really sucks! i find that i am quite irritable during the day, due to my lack of sleep. unfortunately, andrew tends to be on the receiving end of my bad moods and snappiness. he is adjusting to all of this in ways that only a 3 1/2 year old could. as far as his relationship with jacob, i couldn't ask for anything more...he is very loving and helpful. it's his attitude toward me that has become a bit unbearable. he has decided that his way of handling anger, is by hitting & kicking me and saying some really not nice things. we spend a lot of our days handling temper tantrums and meltdowns. while i'm trying every day to deal with this a little better, i am confident we will all be fine in the end. hey, what doesn't kill us makes us stronger, right??? let's just hope it doesn't kill me first!!!

amidst all the chaos, i'm trying to make sure that andrew still gets his big boy time, to play with his friends. see some fun pictures below...

so, while i haven't lost the baby weight and i've gained quite a bit of what i like to call "nursing acne", the past month has been a whirlwind of exciting times. i'll leave you with one last picture of jacob in his "new womb" kangarookorner pouch. thanks to the singer family for this wonderful gift. i can't wait to carry jacob in it at the beach next week!
