A brand new baby and brand new life...

We are loving our brand new baby boy! Savannah has only had a few brief moments of all out jealousy but she gets over it. For the most part she is loving her little brother, the biggest adjustment is the amount of attention shes getting now that baby Chase is here. She loves helping mommy put things in the laundry and bringing wipes or diapers to mommy. She helps take off baby Chase's socks and "helps" give him baths. Joe and I are very proud of her.

Joe has been a wonderful daddy to them both. He continues to be Savannah's playmate and best buddy. Saturday morning they hung out while mommy slept in. Daddy and Savannah made pancakes in all different shapes... it was a big hit! When Daddy is taking care of baby Chase and mom isn't available to feed him right away he pacifies Chase using his nose. I was in the tub and came out to find our new born son sucking on my husbands nose...aparently it had been going on for a while.

Baby Chase's favorite things to do are sleep and eat...of course.... I think deep down everyone would have those on their top ten list. I know I do. Right now he is sleeping in our room in the radio flyer wagon with the portable infant bed in it. I think its pretty clever myself....when hes bigger he'll sleep in his crib. As my mama would say "He's only little."

And I am very happy being a mother of two, and pretty tired. I'm getting adjusted to functioning on 5 hrs of sleep and tell myself it could be much worse... My lap is a popular place to sit for both of them...but we manage just fine.

What a great post Rachel! Good job capturing life as it really is right now. I think the wagon idea is fabulous! Absolute genius! And he looks so cute and cozy in there! And what great pictures!

The next best thing to being there!!! I wanted to come over SO bad today...stupid weather. I'm lovin' this blog of yours! Such great pictures of all of you. I can't think of a better use for a Radio Flyer in winter time! And your dad & I thought it wouldn't get much use until Spring when we gave it to Savannie for Christmas. You can rock him back and forth, it's very portable, and makes it easy to see and reach him next to your bed, huh? I love that and agree it's absolute genius! By the way, in case you haven't heard us say it and Joe make beautiful babies. See you this weekend!

Mama Loves!

P.S. Tell Chase & Savannie that Grannie Loves too!

I love it! Seeing you with your new little boy is making me really anxious and excited to see my new little boy. Isn't it amazing how much they change, even in just a week or two? So cute. Tell Joe that he is such a good daddy and husband to all of you. Letting you sleep in and making fun pancakes...what a guy! And the pictures of him pacifying Chase with his nose reminds of James when Matthew was really little. When Matthew was really hungry (which he was, a lot, he would do that, too.) Cute, cute, cute!
