'Round Here

It's funny how it's so hard to sit still when you really have to. I'm still in recovery mode, but man am I ready to be done! The weather is getting nice again and well, actually, our apartment is a disaster. There are so many things I would rather be doing than "taking it easy." I have to keep reminding myself that Isaac isn't even 2 weeks old. It's not like I've been waiting around for a month. And really, I'm not pushing it because I know I'll regret it if I do. Jeff's been doing laundry and washing dishes for me without complaining (much). ;) He's pretty awesome. Between work, working out, chiropractor appointments and picking up the slack around here, he's pretty busy. Read: no time to relax whatsoever. And all I've been doing is sitting on the couch...

Baby Isaac has been such a good baby, so far. I can count on one hand the amount of times he's cried for a reason other than being hungry. We've got nursing down and he gets right back to sleep at night after a feeding and diaper change. Which only happens 2-3 times a night, by the way. I honestly couldn't ask for a better baby. (I'm pretty sure I said that with Adrian too...let's hope the trend continues.) He's had more and more alert periods and I love to watch him looking around (at what??) and the happy look on his face when Mama's talking to him.

As for Adrian, he's adjusted better than I thought he would. He's been awesome about playing by himself (like usual) and cleaning up when we ask (for the most part). He wants to hold Isaac All.The.Time. It's so often it's almost annoying. Aaah, and I hate to say that because I'm glad he's so interested and is a pretty good big brother (for the most part).

He's been the little entertainer lately. It's making me realize how big he is. Yesterday he kept saying made-up words and even went so far as to say "_____ means a cow...." I can't even remember what he said or what the made-up word was but I had to chuckle that he was trying to tell us what it meant when we kept telling him, "I don't know what you're talking about."

His sarcastic "Really?!" is pretty funny, too.

BTW, I tried out this chocolate bar recipe that I had pinned and it just might become a staple around here. It ends up kind of chewy in the freezer, I was hoping for something with more of a crunch but it's pretty good anyways. And practically guilt-free.

Finally!! This picture is the first time I've seen his eyes! Oh he is so precious i can't wait to meet him when ever that will be.

Love the hair! What a cutie pie! Good to hear he's been a good baby, and it is hard to 'take it easy' I felt good when my parents came out when Kenton was a week old so I was out and about and doing everything like normal. It definitely caught up with me! Keep taking it easy! ;]

Heather, I know you're right! It's so hard! I'm looking forward to Wednesday when Adrian will be out of the house. I'm hoping to get some sewing done, then maybe it will feel like I accomplished something while sitting on my butt!

He is just so sweet!! Fun to see him with his eyes open.

Oh, I just love these two! Wish so badly we could see your baby. Brings tears to my eyes. :) He is so darn cute.

So glad for the blogging world so we can get these updates, though!

I'm going to have to try that recipe!
