I've Been Doing Some Growing...

"Hello, my name in Jack...Cowboy Jack to be exact.  I haven't taken the time yet to talk to you all, so I thought I would fill you in on my life.  I am now a month old.  I have disobeyed my mother by continuing to grow, but I am not sure that is a punishable crime.  I'll get back to you on how it plays out.  I love to eat and sleep.  I am a pro, I have been since the day I was born.  Sometimes in the mornings and evenings I like to eat 4 or 5 times.  It's hard work and I usually like to take a nap in between my snacks.  They can't say that I don't give them a warning that I am hungry.  When I am getting that craving for a meal I get the 'Hungry Hungry Hiccups'. Lately, my parents have been trying to keep me up until 11 (which used to be my party time) so that I'll sleep through the night.  I think I'm pretty good to them.  I've made it through a few nights, but hey, it's lonely in my cradle and sometimes I just like to have another little snack and to snuggle up with them.  I don't think they mind too much."

"I giggle, smile, coo, and cry."

"My digestive system is working very well"

"My arms are in constant motion and my fingernails grow at an incredible rate"

Here I am when I was brand new to the world.

This is a shot of me when I was a little over 1 week old.

This is me at 2 weeks old.  This was my outfit that I wore to church for the first time.  The only two times I wore these shoes I managed to stick them in my dirty diaper and Mommy has been trying to bleach them.  That's how I figured out that I could get out of my church clothes and into my Cowboy clothes.  I try to tell mom, all I need is a pair of Wranglers and a Pearl-Snap.

Why, Oh Why...This was my 3 week photo shoot.  Enough said.

 Here I am at, you guessed it, 4 weeks.  I have big feet and long toes.

1 Month Old!  I don't know why I am naked and on a piece of furniture, but Mommy thought it would be cute.  She might have been right.  This was done quickly, so I have a feeling I will have to get back up there soon.

Jack Jack Jack.

I am so blessed to be Jack's mom.  I embrace my new identity fully.  I tell him all the time how much I love him and I want him to get the most out of life and to walk with Jesus on a daily basis.  And as much as I can't wait for him to grow and experience all that this life has to offer, I secretly would rather him stay small and cuddled up in my arms.  He has stolen my heart and I doubt that I will ever get it back.  Andrew is my first love and Jack is following closely in his father's footsteps.
Thank you Lord for the blessing of being my son's Mommy.
