Me in You

I watch my boy all day long. I stare at him and I study his features, his faces and all his tiny little actions.  I think he looks like my hubby.  Here, what do you think?

But the more I look at him the more I see bits of me.  For instance, I think he has my nose.  A pudgy little nose from his Momma.  And here's a crazy thing.  He sleeps JUST like me.  Either on his back with his hands thrown up over his head or on his side with his hands tucked up under his chin.  I've slept like that my entire life!  How WEIRD is that?
In other news, we took him to his 2 week check-up yesterday.  He's perfect of course.  Back to his birth weight and it seems he even grew a little.  We didn't start his vaccinations yet.  Apparently that is his two month visit.  After a lot of thought and research we are definitely going to get him all his shots but we are going to do a modified schedule.  I'm just not comfortable pumping my little baby full of medicine every time he goes to the doctor.  This will put him a little behind schedule but I'm fine with that.  We have no intention of putting him in daycare as of yet and if we have to we will deal with that when it happens.
We only have one more week with Hubby before he returns to work.  I have really enjoyed have him home this whole time.  I told him that we have spent more time together now than, well, ever!  I know it has been nice for him too.  He has enjoyed being with Jackson and getting to know him.  We are going to miss him when he goes back to work and it will be an adjustment for us learning to get along without him.

Awwww...what a beautiful baby boy! Congrats! Brings me back to when my 2 year old was just two weeks old. Wow, seems like yesterday. I remember just staring at my son day and night, trying to take him all in. A little over two years later, I still do!

Enjoy your new baby and all these precious moments. It helps that they're so cute when you're exhausted beyond belief. =)

Stopping by from SITS! I'll be back soon.

Ah, those days slip by so quickly! Seriously!
I could stare at my baby girl all day (except when I really need a break for some me time, but even then I miss her)!
I so miss my husband being home. It just makes it even more special when we get moments together as a family.
Beautiful baby boy!

I bawled the first day Matt went back to work. Not cried...bawled. I was terrified. But thats also the day that I realized that "hey, I can do this!"

Your boy is precious! Wait til he starts to smile! Thats when I could really start to see who Jack looked like!

I think he looks a lot like you. Can't wait to see him in person and decide!

It will be hard at first, when you're by yourself, but you'll get used to it and get into a rhythm where it's just you and him. I really treasured my alone time with Chloe, when Tom was at work and Ty was at school. It was really special.

So beautiful! You know, my daughter looks JUST like my hubby. I did a side by side comparison of his baby pics to hers... yeah, I just carried her, but she is all him!

Congrats on Jackson... that is my nephew's name too!

HE.IS.ADORABLE. It is truly amazing to sit and watch -- learn -- a newborn and their expressions, looks and feels as they figure things out. That is so cool that he sleeps just like you!

Stopping by from SITS to welcome you to the community! Blessings!

Oh he's so adorable! :)

I couldn't sleep like that... how funny that he's already acting like you!
