One May Day

Jack is over a month old now. It's hard to even comprehend how quickly the time has gone. He has started holding his head up quite a bit and I will get an occasional smile if I tickle in the right place. I just love this picture. He has my chins. ;o) ROFL. And obviously his eye muscles are still developing. He's still sleeping quite a bit during the day, but not nearly as much as he was (which is a good thing!).

I think we are going to retire the bassinet this week (thanks for the loan Julie!). He is getting so big that he hits the sides with his hands when he stirs and that makes him stir even more. I'll have to make a spot (ha!) for the pack n' play and we can use the bassinet feature on there for a few months more. I had been using that as a co-sleeper of sorts (next to the bed), but have put him in the crib the last three nights and he does just fine in there so I don't think a permenent change will be a problem. We have his six week check up on Friday, and I'm looking forward to seeing what his latest measurements are. He seems so much bigger now than when he was born!

Look at that shirt. Isn't that the dang truth? Thankfully I have my Mom trained enough that she will ask me before going ahead with *most* of her bright ideas. Henry is growing into his role of big brother more and more each day. When Jack cries, Henry will go and get a diaper and wipes and point to the spot on the couch where I change him as if to say, "Well? What are you waiting for?" LOL! Then after the diaper change, he's in charge of putting the wipes away and throwing the diaper out. He loves to help, which is great. I need all the help I can get. It blows my mind that he does so much and isn't even two yet.

His next big adventure will be a haircut - his third. We had great success with #1, and #2 was a screaming, crying, fiasco. I wonder what #3 will bring?
