I have a zillion new pictures to share with you, but they are all on Sarah's camera so we have to wait until we download. That's my excuse, that plus having had no sleep for three weeks. Literally. I am loving being a mom of two, I just pray that one day I get to sleep again. Sadie's routine has been SO disrupted that she isn't sleeping well either, so John and I are both up half the night and it's getting rough. Mostly John and Sadie sleep in our room, and Jack and I sleep in the living room. I'm still in the recliner half the time because it's easier to get up when your stomach muscles are still out-to-lunch. I tell myself that one day I will sleep with my husband again. I'm tired. Jack is wonderful, growing and gassy. Seriously, this kiddo has gas issues. Sadie never did, and I never had to think about what I was eating when I nursed her, but every kid is different I guess. It takes forever to burp him and then he still cries with gas and the stupid mylecon drops are USELESS. Anyway, now I'm sounding like I'm complaining. I"m really not, I love it. I'm just tired.
Okay, no one laugh (or laugh if you want, just do it anyway), but a while ago I entered my hubby in the Redbook magazine "Hot Husbands" contest, and the entry I sent in will be on the website beginning Tuesday. You ALLLLLL have to go to the page and vote for him. If he won he would be in the magazine and we would win a trip and all kinds of cool stuff. Plus, I feel he deserves it. So, here is the link. Send it out to everyone you know and tell them to vote for him. But don't forget, he won't be on until Tuesday.

He came into the world on Friday, November 24, at 12:56. He weighed 8lb 3oz, and now weighs 7lbs 14oz. I can't believe today he is a week old! It seems like yesterday, and it also seems like he's been here forever, funny how that works. Sadie already loves being a big sister, is interested in everything he does and likes to "hold" him. Actually, she's a little TOO interested sometimes. I have to watch her when he's in his bouncy seat.
I am recovering well. A planned c-section is SOOO much easier than an emergency one. Although, you could probably guess that. Recovery is still hard, and it hurts like heck, but it's only a week later and I am almost off the pain meds. With Sadie it was MUCh longer. I have lots of help, so I am incredibly grateful to my parents, my in-laws, and our "Canadian", Sarah. I'll shut up now and just let you look at pics of the beautiful boy. Sadie alternately calls him "Baby brother" and "Baby Jack", she even has a little dance she does for him. I don't know what she's actually saying, but she dances and says "Baby Jack Yo".
His coming home outfit made by his great-grandmother. Camo, of course.
This one shows his face without a paci.
