happiest baby on the block

It didn't take reading the book or watching the DVD -- you are just the Happiest Baby on the Block. Also? The most beautiful baby on the block.
We love you baby Jackson Stone.

those eyes.

You are looking at the sweetest little guy on the planet. I now know why everyone says baby boys will melt a mama's heart, because it is happening. Every single day. This boy LOVES his mommy, and what's not to love really? ;)

Jackson loves being in the Baby Bjorn. Good thing because he lives in it when we are out and about. We went all fancy and bought the Ergo baby carrier for him, but he's a simple man and prefers Lucca's hand-me-down Bjorn so far. And what's hotter than a daddy wearing his baby boy? Not much.

What kind of horrible mother allows her infant's fingernails to get so long they can do something like this? Yikes. Pull it together, mama, or people might start to wonder..

Little Buddy,

You are THREE MONTHS old. I am trying to soak in all the precious moments of your teeny tiny life, but no matter how much I try to preserve this time, you just keep growing, dang it. Your "newbornness" is over. Long gone is your rad jet black newborn hair. Long gone are your days of sleeping hours and hours and hours on end. Long gone are the days of you chillin out on my forearm while I did household chores (this was your favorite spot to be, both with me and your dad!). You don't fit there anymore. You are so big already!!

Goodbye newborn babe. Enter: 3-6 months clothes, lots of drool, personality, rolling over, tickle spots, laughing, and stopping everyone in their tracks to adore you.

XOXO my dear son,

Best Night yet!

I am most certainly not the mom who is able to loudly boast that my baby has slept through the night since 6 weeks old. No way. Not even close. But last night? We made progress. Only one wake-up...and it was at 3:15! Good job, buddy! We are getting there. I am convinced you will sleep longer when you are able to roll over and can sleep on your tummy. For all your naps we place you on your stomach and you sleep for hours. But at night, we obey, and swaddle you up and lay you on your back.

My theory? It's probably the ugly babies who sleep great. You can't have it all.
