Fun up in da hood

I have been wanting to get outside, but the mosquitoes are terrible in our neighborhood, so I can barely go outside with Jason. Luckily, I got this bike trailer, which Jason and I love.

Jason gets to be outside, but totally miss the mosquitoes! Yay!

First Foods!

Jason had started getting hungry...ALL THE TIME! I mean, I would feed him, and then he'd be hungry 1.5-2 hours later! I'm still nursing, so this took a ton out of me! Literally. So, I decided it was time to try out some real food.

First meal: Cereal

Now, it's been a couple of weeks, and he's already got some favorites. He loves pears and peaches, likes sweet potatoes, is okay with cereal, and HATES English peas! Really, I tried everything with those peas. I tried hiding them in pears, watering them down, slipping them in between bites, but, after getting tons of peas spit at me, I decided to give up. Hopefully, the vitamins will cover for his hatred of English peas!

I love that his bib is almost as big as his body!

I have been so lazy! I haven't finished any of my thank you cards, sent out birth announcements, or placed a birth announcement in the paper. Bad Mommy! But, Jason finally has a birth announcement on a webpage that chronicles events happening in Simpson County, the county where I work. Ignore the shameless self promotion/advertising I did!

Here it is!
Jason's Birth Announcement

First Day at Church

We finally decided to brave going to church, after some encouragement from our friends Justin and Misty Stricklin. I had been worried about how it was going to work out, since I am nursing. Luckily, our church is prepared for that, and has a nursing room available. So, we got up early one Sunday morning, got Jason ready, fed him before we left, and went to church. Church started at 10:45. We dropped him off at 10:30. At 11, I got a text message saying to come feed him. I left the sanctuary just as the pastor was starting his sermon. When I got back, the pastor was saying, "Join me in prayer", essentially finishing his sermon. I pretty much only got to be there for the singing before and after.

Very tired, but happy to be there!

Luckily, Misty is a seasoned veteran with babies (she has 3, and is a NICU/well baby nurse), and she advised feeding him at the church before I went to the sanctuary. I did that the next Sunday, and guess what? I got to stay during the whole service! Thank goodness for good and smart friends!
