day 1

so, mike went back to work today, and i'm at home with all 3 of the kids.
the morning went well, jackson got up at 6am to eat, and then we laid in bed until the alarm went off at 7am. Mike and i got the kids up, dressed, and fed in time for him to be at work by 8am. The kids and i went to an appointment, which went well, except for when we were leaving. Isaiah didn't want to leave (there was a movie on in the waiting room) and when i took his hand to lead him towards the door he threw himself on the floor screaming, "OW! OW! STOP IT!" now, normally this would make me a bit mortified. but when you have 3 children, you learn to deal with their outbursts. smiling at all the people gawking, i promptly scooped him up off the floor (kicking and screaming) grabbed my purse and the carseat and hauled them out to the truck. eleanor followed obediently behind.

the kids are now all taking a nap. we'll see how the rest of the day goes.

in other exciting news:
jack has a belly button now!

he's really spoiling us with the amount of time he sleeps at night! he's been sleeping 4 hour stretches every night!

jack also loves to sunbathe.

i can't believe he's 10 days old! yesterday we had family photos taken by Jodi Baker of Jodi Baker Photography. (check out her website. ~SHE.IS.AMAZING~) and she's running a special in april!

lastly, a big congrats to my friend Mickey Elkins on the birth of her daughter Allie Jo. (our hospital rooms were right across the hall from each other!) Allie was born the day after Jackson. visit her lovely blog by clicking the button below. make sure to leave her lots of love!
