Meet Jett at 2 weeks old. I plan to take these photos once a week to document his growth. This photo taken on the most beautiful handmade gift from Audrey (my co-worker) she knit this blanket and it's ALL ME - the colors are amazing the pattern the softness of the yarn. I LOVE LOVE it.
-Jett is 2 weeks old today and he weighs 6lbs6oz... amazing!! So much growth in two weeks.
-He is peaceful... barely cries and just loves to eat and sleep.
-He is the exact image of his dad.. it's actually crazy how much they look alike.
-Noah and Ari are just crazy in love with their brother, sometimes too much. They just want to hug him, squeeze him, kiss him and handle him. They don't get the concept of too much.
-Dave and I were driving the other day and both looked in the back and turned to each other and couldn't believe we are the parents of THREE kids. Whoa.
-Adjusting to life with the three of them has had its ups and downs... mostly behavior stuff with A & N. It's been surprising to me to see the behavioral issues with Noah when I was expecting them with Ari.
Those of you who have followed my blog from when the twins came will know that those early days were dark for me.. well let's face it that whole year was bleak. This has been amazing for me... I have been thinking about how we never really got to enjoy N & A when they came. We were in survival mode... we spend lots of time really enjoying Jett and getting to love him on him in a different way. Some times I feel ripped off that I didn't get that the first time and the guilt can creep in. But I go back to that place of remember that I am doing the best I can with what I have.. that's all we can ever do. I am thankful to get this chance to do it this way. One baby really is just so much simpler. Also having done all these things before helps... everything just comes easier.
I have so many blog posts in my head and once the fog has lifted (it's getting there) I'll be back with more. I have photos to share from N & A's birthday and some other fun stuff from the end of May and June.
