Happy Thanksgiving

Well we loaded up the car on the Friday before Thanksgiving, it was the fullest it has ever been, with two kids, a mommy, a daddy, and a large puppy dog… and everything that each one of those people need.  I wish I would have gotten a picture.  Once we were loaded up, we raced to the lake, since I would have to nurse Jack as soon as we arrived at the lake. 

We had a nice relaxing weekend with my parents at the lake before the craziness began on Sunday night.  That’s when the family started to arrive and Zach went back to town to work for two days.  I stayed at the lake with my parents and the kids.  We had a great week at the lake with lots and lots of family.  Here are some photos from the week.

First Bottle

Today was our first big outing.  I had my doctor appt for my 2 week check up and my mom had an eye doctor appt.  She has been able to take off some time to come and help me while Daddy had to go back to work. We got the kids ready and headed to my doctor appt.  My mom stayed in the car, while the kids napped.  Once my appt was over I hustled down to the car, pumped while my mom drove to her appt, then we got the kids out and headed in to her appt.  Sophia and I gave Jack his first bottle.

The next day, Daddy and Sophia gave Jack another bottle.  Sophia just loved being able to help feed her baby brother.

Jack’s Arrival

On the morning of November 2, 2011, we got up on our last day as a family of three, ate  a yummy breakfast… well Zach and Sophia did, packed up the car and all of Sophia’s stuff to stay at Grandma and Grandpa’s for a few days.  After we got Sophia all settled in at Grandma and Grandpa’s, we headed up to the hospital to get checked in.  Once we got all settled my mom brought Sophia up to see us. 


At about 5:30 they were ready to take me back for the c-section. WE WERE SUPER EXCITED TO MEET OUR NEWEST ADDITION.





Sophia meeting Jack for the first time.  She was so super excited.  She said, “Mommy, I want him!” Then she tried to pick him up and hold him.

The next few pictures of our stay at the hospital.  It amazes me how much I already love my little man.  He is such a wonderful baby.  And I know that Sophia is going to be a great big sister.

Our last morning at the hospital.  Sophia and my mom came to meet us so that Sophia could ride home with us.  We also had a little brother for Sophia to take home as well, she especially loved the diaper bag full of baby doll necessities.



Jack all settled in at home.
