Last night when I laid Jake down in our bed so I could get some sleep he was asleep, but not super deeply. I laid him on his back and as I was moving slightly away from him he reached out and grabbed my arm. I looked over and he was still asleep, but had the biggest smile on his little sweet face. As he settled back to sleep holding my arm I looked over and told Waldo “Either he’s smiling because he’s all ‘I got you, you can’t get away from me’ or because he’s content having a hold of me”. Either way it’s adorable and he’s just so sweet.
Tonight during tummy time Jake rolled over! He’s 15.5 weeks old.
He’s also teething.
He’s the coolest little man I know.
The other day Lil and I were sitting at the kitchen table and out of nowhere we have this conversation:
Lil “Mom when is that special day for you and Dad?”
Me “What special day”
After a moment of thought “The day when you and Dad decided to not just be friends anymore, but to be a family.”
Awe, I think that’s the perfect description for getting married. I love how her mind works.
These pictures don’t have anything to do with this conversation except that they are of Lil. I just wanted to add them.
Sometimes I look down into Jake’s little face and I swear he’s concentrating so hard. His little brows will be knitted and I can just see the gears working trying to figure something out. In the months and years to come I can’t wait to see if his personality is anything like I imagine him to be.
As of right this second I think he’s going to be a calm cuddly little boy how is trying to put all the puzzle pieces into place.
Happy 2 months Jakey.
Jake Stephen Wiggins was born on 11-27-2014 Thanksgiving afternoon at 2:29. He weighed 6 lbs and was 19 inches long. He has a head full of what appears to be dark duck downy hair and I can’t keep my fingers off of it. He was born at 37 weeks 3 days gestation and because of that, things aren’t going the way that I had envisioned they would, but that will be a separate post. He is adorable and just the sweetest little thing.
Welcome to the world Jake, I can’t wait to see what you make of it.
