Daddy went back to work today!

WOW!  We were spoiled having Daddy home the last 3 weeks.  It was surely was a bit crazy of a morning with the kids and I, but we figured it out.  Can't wait for it to be nice out so we can get outside and play instead of being stuck in the house.  Poor Jacob, still is adjusting to life with a sister.  A lot of meltdowns over very little things that would have never bothered him before.  He has also told me his teeth are hurting, so I will blame part of it on his molars coming in.  

Bella is growing fast and is really a great baby.  Now that we have figured out what upsets her and what makes her happy and how to help prevent her tummy issues, life has been much easier the last couple of days (I should knock on wood).  She has even slept for 5 1/2 hours without getting up to nurse a few times, but then of course the next night will want to get up every 3, but hey, I am not complaining, she is only 3 weeks old (well, 3 weeks on Wednesday).  We continue to feel totally blessed to have such a healthy happy little girl and of course we so lucky for our little man, Jacob!  

More pictures of course... my mom thinks all my pictures make Bella look way too big. Still trying to figure out how to not make that happen... but still love taking pics of my little lady.  And the truth be told, she is a big girl!!!  LOL!

Trying to keep my little man little

Jacob took a bath in the sink today.. he loved it. Not too sure why we don't ever do this.  He had a blast!  I even had to bribe him with jellybeans to get him out.  It won't be long before he is too big to do this :(  I wish I could keep him little forever!

Bella is 2 weeks old!

Baby Bella is 2 weeks old.  We continue to love love love her!  Her little brother is loving her more and more as well. He has even asked to hold her a few times as well.  He covers her with a blanket, tries to give her, her binkie, and will get a diaper for his mom or dad so they can change her.  He certainly has his time of jealousy as well, but he is doing great!  Bella had decided that she doesn't want to take a binkie.. ughh! Sure hope that changes.  Nights have been off and on, but all in all things are going as you would expect life with a newborn would go.  

Today we went to Lifetime Fitness and played in the pool.... unfortunately, I couldn't swim, but Bella and I enjoyed watching Daddy and big brother play in the water.  I can't believe how big my little man is getting.  He is at such a fun age!!!    Here are a few pictures of my other baby... Jacob!

Baby Bella is 1 week old!

I can't believe it!  Bella is already one week old.  She has already brought our family so much love and many many smiles!  Now big brother Jacob is still getting used to the idea of having to share his mom and dad, but we know that soon he will love having a little sister!  Each day he warms up to her mom and more.  

Here are some pictures I took of Bella today.

It's a GIRL!!!!!

Baby Isabella arrived on April 1st at 8:10 am.  She was 10 pounds 8 oz and 22 3/4 inches long.  A very big little girl. I was 3 days late.  We are so glad to finally have her here and are still can't believe we have a little girl.  Jacob is doing pretty good with it all... he still isn't totally sure abut her, but does love to give her kisses!  Here are some  pictures.... enjoy!
