Enough about the baby,

What about ME?!?!?!!


Just kidding, this post will be mostly about Jude, or all 3 of us, because I am a new obsessed Mom, and because just LOOK AT HIM!!!


We're doing well over here, a nice, hearty stew of snuggles, postpartums, 30 Rock (I blew through Friday Night Lights way too fast), visitors, food for me that won't irritate Jude, slowly starting to emerge from the house for things like walks or quick grocery runs, back aches from hunching over nursing all day, having a guessing game every evening of how much Jude (and therefore I) will sleep, diaper changes that are not as painful as I'd anticipated, and growth spurts. My recovery is going pretty well, the #1 item I can't live without is Lanolin, and I'm really excited about the Robeez booties we just got, because he kicks off his socks in about 4 seconds and I cannot abide a baby with cold feet. I of course sing him his very own Beatles song, especially in the rare moments when I can't hold him. I know I could put him down more than I do but I don't really want to and figure I might as well take advantage of the 1 on 1 our other kids unfortunately won't have.

Every day we Rookies learn something new, every day he charms me to small, tiny bits, and every day I thank Heavenly Father for my 2 boys that fill me to my toes with sequin encrusted love.

If you are down with arranged marriages, how does Jude feel about older women? Say 9 months older? Just think about it...

What a lovely post. And it's not fair you look so pretty lying in that hospital bed! Also, Jude is a darling little man.

Ok, that's it, I'm calling you so I can get some Jude time! Sick kids, then a crazy schedule has kept me away too long!
