Although there is something else that I personally am finding a little alarming...I think he is figuring out how to roll onto his left side while lying on his back. He did it at 3 weeks but we could tell from his face that he was as surprised as we were. But last week after I finished my blog entry I took my eyes of him for a minute and when I looked at him again he was lying on his side...I knew I had put him on his back. But I told myself that it was a fluke as he is only 2 months old. Well then he did it again on Saturday, did it again on the changing table on Sunday and again yesterday. Not a constant thing but I am starting to think its a bit too often for a fluke. He is too young to be figuring things out like that!!!
Oh well, he sure is growing fast. :) But here are some pictures from the week to enjoy.
We have recently discovered that he likes to sit propped up in the corner of the couch. Our big boy. :) And he loves to grab his blankie now and play with it...constantly pulling it off his feet and then becoming upset later when they are cold.
A recent bath picture, he is starting to get a little better with them, although he still hates to have his face washed. Isn't it cute how is is adoringly looking at his daddy?!?

A possible answer to our favorite baseball team...make Jake an Angels fan. :)
One of the last times Ryan gave Jake a bottle he decided he wants to learn how to hold it.

And then today is also 8 weeks from when Jake was born. It amazes me how fast the time is going. But he is just so amazing and I love watching him. This weekend he was his happy smiley self even trying out his little giggle a few times for my parents. He also grabbed a toy out of my hand which surprised the heck out of me...I honestly think it surprised him too. But at 8 weeks he loves his swing, cuddling with anyone who will hold him, can hold his head up and loves to "sit" on his daddy's lap (with a teeny bit of help), and can follow us around with his eyes...when he is not absolutely enthralled with the ceiling. :) So here are some new pictures to be enjoyed.

Jake and Kadence...it will be so much fun as they grow and can start to play with each other
Little Jake with his monkey toy...this was right after he grabbed it out of my hand (I was holding onto the soft monkey and he managed to grab the ring holding onto it)

I love my little boy so much, this morning he woke up with a smile on his face and it just starts the day off wonderfully. :)
Sitting on Dad's lap :) Ryan was helping him sit but Jake was holding his own head up with very little problem. Now Ryan is starting to give him standing lessons. hehe
We also introduced Jake to his high chair. I had picked this one out because it rocks way back and so you can use it as a chair for a newborn....great to have while working in the kitchen so I can keep an eye on him an visa versa. :) As you can see here, this is one of the times he is keeping an eye on me.
And here is my little Jake Man playing on his activity mat. At this point he does not have the patience or strength to enjoy it for long but it makes him happy for a little bit.
