2 Weeks Old!






Everyone is doing great here at the Jenkins II house! Alli and Landon seem to be adjusting just fine to the new little change. This boy is still sleeping like a champ and feedings are going great as well. The only complication seems to be that he wants to eat all of the time and takes forever to do so. It won't be long until he is on a bit of a schedule and eats more at one time and stays full longer...so I hope. I'm doing things just as I would with two. I'm out and about, doing things around town, the hardest part seems to be getting them all out of the car and back in, for some reason. I don't mind shopping with all of them but when it comes time to come and go it seems like it takes us forever. Or just as we are needing to leave Anderson will suddenly become hungry. I'm trying to be patient with it and stay away from formula because I know it will get better. He is staying awake and alert more often...he has started to make cute little noises when he eats...he isn't crazy about the swing or the bouncy seat...he still prefers our bed as opposed to his...his umbilical cord came off a couple of days ago...he now loves his bath time...he doen't like having his diaper changed but doesn't mind getting dressed...and his hand and feet are flaking away his first layer of skin. I'm feeling better everyday, more energy and I noticed that my eyes today finally were open and awake looking :) I am however missing time with my husband, but I'm dreading having to ask someone if they want to watch three kids at once, not to mention that one of them is a bit attached.

He looks more and more like Landon to me. I feel you on getting the kids in and out of the car. It takes forever for me to do it with 2 so I can't imagine 3. I'm glad your getting around and not stuck in the house.

The new pictures are gorgeous. Lily never really took to the bouncy seat or swing either. Good luck with that.

Again, I wish we lived closer. I'd TOTALLY watch the kids for you so you and Ken could get some time together. They should move Louisiana closer to California. ::sigh::

oh my goodness he is getting bigger. I should come to haughton more often. I don't think you'll have too hard of a time finding someone to watch 3 absolutely precious kiddos!

Michelle, you have some beautiful kiddos. Anderson is absolutely gorgeous. He's so alert! And the hair...I love it! I admire you for getting right in there and staying with your regular routines.

My last day is THURSDAY! Plan a date night for next week sometime--like after mother's day--and I'll come watch your litle darlings. It's really like watching two kids anyway because Alli is such a big help these days. Call me!-Courtney

Pump...I'll take the baby! Seriously. Call me anytime and we can meet mid-way with him.
