I can hardly believe that my little boy turned a month old yesterday...it seems like we were just at the hospital. But as you can see from the picture above...he is quite the little character. :) He is getting so strong and loves to hold his own head up, although he still does occasionally head butt Ryan and I when he is trying to hold it up and move it around. He is also starting to coo a little more now and it sounds so cute and there are more little grins that are sneaking through now...not sure if they are still gas or they are him..but its darn cute. And he is a wiggly worm...you hold him in your arms and he acts like he is trying to go somewhere...he keeps forgetting that he is not really in control of his body yet. hehe But we love this little guy so much and he is a fantastic baby. So happy and has spoiled us rotten by sleeping, eating well and not being terribly fussy.
We met Ryan's group from work at BJ's on Thursday because they all wanted to meet Jake and he was so good. He slept through the first half of lunch and then made everyone happy by waking up so that he could be held and admired. I honestly think he liked all of the attention. :)
Below is a picture that I took yesterday. I was in the back of the house and Ryan was playing with Jake...when I came back this is what I found. hehe I think Daddy tired him out. The bunny was Ryan's when he was little and he has been so nice as to share it with our little man, and the lamb is something that I got for Jake around Christmas and often during my pregnancy I would look at it and look forward to introducing it to the little one wiggling inside of me.

Oh and I think I forgot to share earlier this week. We took Jake to his Well Baby checkup this week and he is now 11 lbs 14 oz and is 24 1/4" long. So in two weeks he gained 11 oz and grew 2 1/4" ...wow!!! He really does want to be a tall boy. We also gave him his first bath on Friday and well...he was not too wild about it, but it was a new experience for him. But it was a fun thing to be able to do together with Ryan. It is so much fun to have Ryan around all the time these days instead of him having to work. We are really enjoying our 6 weeks...thank you California for giving Dads baby bonding time! :D

Dad and Jake, just hanging out :D
Our little boy is quite the mello kid, as can be seen by this picture of him sleeping
I love this picture that his Grandma Brown took, he really is getting stronger and stronger...although he was only able to hold this for about 2 seconds...but it is so cute. Amazing he can do this at 3 weeks.

Anyway...here are more pictures!!! I know that is what many enjoy the most anyway. hehe
Here is Jake's first time in his swing, he almost looks like a little cowboy with his arm up like it is. hehe But he was not completely sure about it the first time. The second time he loved it and then proceded to fall asleep in it. So I think we are really going to enjoy it.
And here are some of Jake's 2 week old pictures. I love this picture of him in his Grandpa Brown's lap. And I know at this stage what looks like a smile is really just gas...but isn't this just too cute!?!?
