Jesse's first cold

I woke up several times last night due to Jesse's loud breathing. This morning I noticed it wasn't just heavy breathing, but some serious congestion in his sinuses. I was very worried so i called the doctor and am heading in with him around seven tonight. I am just hoping that it is not RSV, a horrible virus that is like bronchitis for children. I tried to keep him away from all the sick kids this weekend, but it must have not worked as well as I thought. Right now he is sleeping and will probably be most of the day due to his congestion. Poor little thing....

Funny Faces















This was the tail end of a smile. Jesse talks to me now when i talk to him. All of his cute little noises are so fun to listen to!
















Here is a smile I caught on tape. It is a side smile but i believe the beginnings of dimple are present.
















He he. I just like this face he makes.
















Jesse has started this habit of sucking on his hand and when he does it he is very loud. He does this to to hint to me that he is hungry. He is becoming clever.





This blue outfit was so cute on him that I couldn't resist getting a picture









he had the hiccups so he was grumpy

Kicking

video

So Jesse is becoming very active. In fact last night when i woke up, he had some how managed to roll onto his stomach, which really shouldn't be possible at almost six weeks. Anyway, this video doesn't only show his active side, but this is my new favorite outfit on him- it makes him look so big!! And very much like a boy :)

All smiles

video

my mom and I were constantly trying to catch Jesse smiling in his sleep, and i came up with an easy solution: video tape him. This is just a small piece of how cute he is when he is sleeping. He also makes the cutes whining noises when he sleeps too but you would have to be here to get the idea. He smiled for real at Andy yesterday while i was at work....pretty soon he will be talking and I imagine with my luck his first words will be "dada." Oh well......

Cows must love babies too















Andy loves to feed Jesse and he even does it on his lunch break from work! (Thus the dressy clothes)














He tried on his new tennis shoes today, compliments to Anne and Mat on how cute they are! They are still a little big though, i just couldn't wait to see what they looked like. :)

Bessa is enjoying her new buddy too. She doesn't like sleeping next to him because she always wakes up wet. But she is pretty relaxed around him because he doesn't pull on her ears yet or sit on her.

finally four weeks


















































Today Jesse turned four weeks old. He has been so much fun so far and I am dreading leaving him on monday to go back to work. Everyday has been very simple; bathing, changing diapers, feeding, and sleeping. Each day he becomes more and more animated. Andy and I are constantly laughing at his goofy faces and cute little cries. Being a mom is fantastic yet nothing like I imagined. But we both feel blessed that we have such a wonderful baby boy.
