Babe meets his Great Great Gramma

First of all, I apologize for not updating this blog more. Life has become very busy with this household. I am in school full time, working, the kids are in school full time, Jayme went back to school a few weeks ago, add to that a family member in the hospital, various winter illness that are passed through the family and the blog takes a backseat!

So, for some updates. Jayme returned to school 3 weeks ago. The first day she struggled with leaving Gabriel in daycare, I was with her and when she finally walked out, she was bawling. She called me by noon and had me come pick the two of them up. It was a hard transition. Things are better now though, she has 2 hours a day in the daycare with him, and is able to come nurse him when he is hungry. She is glad to be back in school though.

Moose has his first ear infection, so Jayme is getting her experience with a sick fussy baby who can't nurse and breathe at the same time. She is dealing well with it though, and Moose is recovering nicely. He is now 2 months old and weighing in at a hefty 13 pounds 6 ounces already!! He is smiling and cooing now, making him a fun baby for the whole house.

Last night, Moose met his Great Great Grandmother for the first time. She came up from California for a visit, and it was awesome to see her and him together. Today we will go get 5 generation portraits done together, maybe I will put one up here. Iam looking forward to having a beautiful portrait of all of us on the wall. It strikes me as odd that its already here, I have thought of this moment since I accepted that Jayme was indeed pregnant. Now, its here!

Here is Moose, showing off his incredibly delicious smile! Don't you wanna just eat him up??? He is just a happy (sometimes. . . more often now. . .) butterball. He still is Mr. Grumpy for the most part though.
One thing about Moose, he is quite strong and needs to be upright at all times. He gets upset if you try to lay him down, here he is practicing his grown up "sitting" skills.

So, there is our quick little update. We all have a long weekend planned, mostly catching up on housework, family and homework. I will try to update more often!! Promise!
