One Month Old!

Jack is now exactly one month and three days old! WOW! It has flown! He is doing really really well. He is still eating well, though he falls asleep and I have to continually keep him awake, and he's doing great going to sleep at night. Mom and Dad are also doing well, we have survived a whole month of sleep deprivation and crazy hormones, so that's a huge Praise! Jack is doing all sorts of amazing things now. He smiled at me yesterday and made me cry it was so sweet! And he can follow objects in an arch 180 degrees, which is cool. He's being very vocal too--cooing and making all sorts of funny sounds, we've had several deep conversations. And he is a thinker like his Dad tha's for sure! The faces he makes as he contemplates everything are precious! We Love him sooooo much!

We are almost to Moving day! Three days to go. Brian, Kane, and hayden took a load of stuff on Sunday and this Saturday we're taking everything else. Brian loved staying in our house and said that he's so excited to be there for good with me and Jack. The guys had a great time and loved Rison--i knew they would. Hopefully they'll get to come visit a ton in the future. We're excited and nervous and ready and not ready and all kinds of other emotions right now. I'm just looking very forward to things slowing down for a little while once we get settled. All in all, things a great and we are soaking it all up trying to really appreciate this time.

More of Jack!!!!

Jack is now three weeks old! I cannot believe that in a week he will be a month old already! Time is flying as everyone said it would.
We are all doing great. Jack is growing and starting to get little fat rolls that are precious! We still think that he is the most perfect baby EVER! He has started trying to roll over a little bit and can make it to his side really well, but he hasn't quite gotten all the way to his tummy yet. He makes the cutest and funniest faces all the time, especially right after he eats! i love it! He continues to surprise us with showers when we change his diaper, we haven't quite figured out how to see that coming yet. :) he is a really good baby, and doesn't cry much unless he's hungry or wet. He's eating like a champ and is very healthy.
Daddy and I are getting more and more used to the getting up every three hours during the night, although I have started sorta sleep walking when it gets near time to get up and feed Jack. I get up and start getting everything ready for feeding and then realize that we have another hour until it's time. Then I get mad because I woke myself and Brian up, but then i get over it and go back to sleep. So that's been interesting and somewhat funny.
This weekend we are on our first little trip. I say little, I made out a HUGE list and started packing for this on Wednesday. Jack has two bags and a few other big items while Brian and I have a tiny bag each! It's hilarious how things change! And it took us major planning this morning to get out of the house. But I love stuff like that, so it was fun! And we only forgot one or two minor things! So yeah us! Right now we're in Madison visiting my parents and sister and tomorrow we're going to Yazoo City to see Brian's grandmamma. My aunt and twin cousins were here this afternoon to see Jack, that is who is in the pics above. He is getting sooo spoiled! He barely slept today with all of the attention! I think he went from one person's arms to another's the entire day. And tomorrow will be no different I'm sure! He is very very very loved, that's for sure! Praise God! We're all excited about tomorrow, but Brian's grandmamma has been counting down the days! She cannot wait to meet her great-grandson! It's going to be wonderful! I'll be taking tons of pictures, and hopefully posting them soon.

Jack Allen Is Here!!!

"But I have trusted in Your mercy; my heart shall rejoice in your salvation. I will sing to the LORD, because He has dealt bountifully with me."
Psalms 13:5 &6

As the previous post said, Jack was born on Thursday, March 22, at 11:19 a.m. at Oktibbeha County hospital. Everything went really well with the labor and delivery and both he and I had no complications, Praise God! The hospital stay was good, it was hard to get rest there, but other than that the nurses and everybody were great.
We went home on Saturday, the 24th to a house full of excited family. Grandpa and Grandmamma Chisholm, Aunt Amanda, Nana and Papa Bodin, Aunt Elizabeth and Uncle Michael were all very excited! Since then, Brian, Jack, and I have all been doing great. My mom stayed with us for a week to help out, and so many people have brought by food and offered to help. We are so blessed to have great friends who love us!
Jack is growing and thriving! He had his 2 week check up on Thursday and he had gained over a pound since going home. He's eating really well and sleeping pretty well. We're all getting adjusted to our new life. It is a BIG change, but it is so great! I am just now realizing that we are a family now and that we are parents, and what that really means! It's amazing and so unbelievable! We love Jack more and more every minute! He is the cutest, most perfect baby ever born! (In our opinion.) Praise God for our son!
Hopefully I'll be able to post again sometime soon. We are so busy, and it's hard to get away long enough to do all this, but we'll see. We still have lots coming up, we're moving in three weeks! Rison here we come!
Pray for us and little Jack as we get ready for another big change.
