Our little cuddle monkey is 1 month old and it's already hard to imagine our lives without him. He has changed so much in his short life and has gotten big already, weighing in at 11lbs and 2 oz. He is 75% weight, and 95% height (23 inches). His head circumference is also 95% - smart baby! We love to take advantage of the fact that he fits so snuggly on our chests and in our arms. Will there be a day when he is not this little? Don't let it come quickly! Even though he keeps us awake each night, he makes up for it with his little eyebrow raises, his pouty lips and his super cuddly body.

This kind. You only have your first baby once, right? It turns out it was a ton of fun to see lil' J in cute poses and the photographer got some great pics. We took him to a local photographer who specializes in newborn and infant photos. While our little Vladamir Pootin' looks so peaceful in all these shots, it took quite a while to get him comfortable and quiet for all those pics, and as you can imagine, posing for an extended period of time with a naked baby ensures that all parties involved get peed upon. Our little guy did a great job- of course we're biased and think every little thing he does is cute:) These were all taken when he was 6 days old- enjoy!

Little Jackson is 2 1/2 weeks old now! Mom and dad came into town again this weekend and we got another great surprise as well. Uncle Matt flew all the way from Little Rock to meet his nephew. It was such a treat to see him and to watch him interact with Jackson. He has already had practice being an uncle because Chase's sister had her first baby, Peyton, 5 months ago. We are excited for Aunt Chase to meet Jackson over Christmas break when they come into town. We are already shopping for a seersucker suit for him to wear to Matt and Chase's wedding in June.
Jackson loves to sleep during the day and very little at night. These quiet moments are few and far between so we savor them when they come. Although Lincoln is getting almost the same amount of attention as before, he has put on a pathetic demeanor and loves to sulk around the house, making us feel so bad for him! One night, he faked an injury to his foot, limping around the house until we paid him more attention. So, Jonathan tries to cuddle with both of his boys whenever he gets the chance.
