This kid never stops sucking. when he loses his toy he sucks on the bumbo. Fingers, forearms, shoulders whatever he can get his mouth on. 


This photo is about a month old but I love it. These babies love each other. Joyce does tend to poke him in the eye like she does to her dolls and pull his hair like she does to herself so he lives in a constant state of flinching. But when they see each other they smile and get excited. In some ways I am convinced they really are like twins. I have begun to notice they wake up at the same time. Ward can sleep through all kinds of noise but it seems when he hears his sister he wakes. At 5 this morning she began to fuss. Good husband was snoring like an engine and then I heard Ward babbling to himself. I took care of her first, then fed him, and then gave up on sleep since there is no stopping the snoring easily. One night I tried plugging his nose (like dad used to do to wake us up) poked him in the side, drummed his belly, whatever! Finally, moving his arm to make him wave at himself did arouse him enough that he chuckled and took a break from the noise.

HD bathroom

We were in the home depot this morning when I had a nursing emergency. I left home without a pacifier and Ward would not be content sucking on the burp rag I did have so I resorted to nursing him in the bathroom. A nice employee even pulled in a chair for me to be comfortable. Joyce passed the the eating Cheerios and making faces at herself in the mirror.

My babies

sometimes this is how I spend my mornings. Feed them at the same time or just relax with them at the same time.

3 months

I want to take a more formal picture, but today is his real birthday so I snapped this for the blog. He spent the day in his pjs. We even spent an hour at the park. It was a good day for all. The scratch in his head is probably from me protecting him from Joyce. Poor kid.

This was one of our attempts at a family photo. Joyce was the x factor. She has become the ultimate wiggle worm.

You may not be able to tell, but I was getting lots of smiles this morning. This is mid yawn. I too am smiling because I tried on my old Jeans this morning and they fit! Possibly not as loose as before but they are comfortable enough to wear today.

John (aka ward) is growing. He looks chubby around the middle now. I had my 6 week check up and found out I am only 4 pounds from my first check up weight. Hooray! The inches haven't dropped, though. In fact the doctor said my uterus is bigger than it should be. I guess I shouldn't be surprised since they persuaded me to get a csection by saying I had a tired uterus and it would have trouble shrinking. I get to see the Dr again in a month.
