A Jett Update

Here's what Jetters has been up to:

He's sort of sleeping through the night. I've created a beast, him and his passy! He wakes at 3 or 4 or both wanting it. I'm sure he'd rather eat but I'd rather him not. Not sure what to do with him. Sometimes I'm up 6 times a night shoving that dang thing in his mouth. Hmmm.

He got a little trim today. His hair was getting scraggly and it needed to be done. Looks better. I should have taken a picture but didn't so trust me when I say it's so much better!

He's learned how to smile and chat with us. We all squeal with delight when he makes darling baby noises and then try to get him to do it again.

I LOVE a baby in a towel. He's pinchable from head to toe and weighed in at 12 lbs. 14 oz. two weeks ago. He thinks it's funny to squirt us with his hose during his bath. We scream and quickly scramble to take cover. :) I'm sure inside he's laughing!

Tatum loves changing his diapers, his wet diapers NOT his poopy diapers. It's rather funny to watch her. She positions the diaper just right and then he kicks and wiggles and she has to wrestle with him again. She's really cute and has yet to be squirted, can't wait for the reaction WHEN that happens! Tuck isn't so interested in the diaper changing and immediately wants him taken away when he fills his britches with poo.

Little man. He has a lot of expressions! Some are concerned, some curious, some happy, and others mad!

Go Sun Devils! He looks like a balding old man in the picture on the right!

We still can't get enough snuggle time!

Jett's Blessing

Jett's special day was on a beautiful, Arizona afternoon. Gorgeous weather, beautiful baby, and our wonderful families. It was a perfect day. Chris did a great job, with baby #4 he's a pro! Jett was oh-so handsome and he didn't even poop his yellow poop which would have ruined his handsome outfit. He behaved during the blessing and was a major hit with all who were there. Everybody loved him...of course, what's not to love!

A few other photos of the mister.

They were very proud of their brother. They counted down all week for "Jett's special day" and were thrilled to help with anything they could.

This was the best we could do with all 3. I say all 3 like it's a lot. Ha! Imagine if Jersey were here, 4 kids is definitely a lot! It was a glorious day with so much love, thanks to all who came and shared it with us!

Tucker's Tooth

Tucker had a tooth that needed to come out. It was hanging but Tuck wouldn't pull it. Instead, he thought it'd be easier to have a remote control car do the deed. It just so happened that his cousin Jacob had a car that would take care of his tooth. Here's Tuck getting floss tied to his tooth in preparation.

He's ready to go!
Jacob and the car.

Wait for it...wait for it...

And with a mighty tug and a loud pop it was out!!
The search was on. Gotta leave proof for the tooth fairy! We eventually found it in the grass. We laughed about Tucker and his tooth the rest of the day. It was mighty funny and brave of him!

In the Days Since...

This is how the mister spends most of his days.

Tucker had a birthday and turned 6, more on that in another post.

We still can't get enough.

He's learned to make funny faces, this goofy one is my favorite!

He still enjoys being bundled and is so handsome!

He got his foot pricked 4 days in a row to keep an eye on his bilirubin levels. It finally peeked and came down. He also failed his hearing test twice in the hospital and barely passed it twice at the specialists. He SHOULD be fine but we'll keep mindful and watch him as he develops. Look at that round face!

Tuck pulled both of his front teeth in the same day. It gives him a different look and we laugh at the words he says differently.

We all fight each other to get our snuggle time in.

Jett days 2 & 3

Day 2 was much less eventful. The blondies came up for another visit and once again, couldn't get enough. Jett and I got better acquainted, he's such a good baby and so squishy! I was able to inspect every inch of him and rather enjoy his pinchy thighs, fuzzy shoulders, and his pterodactyl cry. I decided he looks like Tatum but sneezes like Tucker, 2 sneezes in a row and never any less. He moans like Tucker did when he sleeps and drools like his Dad.

He appreciates being bundled but prefers his arms left out. Even if you forget and wrap him with his arms in they always find a way to come out. His lips are smoochable and his head deliciously soft. He's mine and I'm smitten.

We got to come home on Wednesday, January 5th, a freezing cold morning. It was also Jersey's 2nd angel anniversary. How ironic he should come home this very day. Not coincidence. It was the best thing I could think of to do on this day, perhaps Jersey Girl had a hand in this. I felt like a new parent trying to dress him feeling like I'd break him.

The rest of the day we couldn't get enough of him. Tatum immediately held him when she got home from school. Sadly for her it was the last time for 4 days she'd be able to. She went from beauty queen to...

a very sick girl. She ran a fever, had body aches, and even hallucinated at night. She wasn't allowed to come near me or Jett and was so jealous to watch Tucker hold and smooch Jett. Poor girl, I really felt bad for her!

The boys each got their turns with the boy.

He got a new outfit and we thought he looked quite funny, cozy but funny.

And yes, his arms eventually found their way out.
