All About Jake

I know you’ve been hearing a lot about Drew but I didn’t want to forget about our favorite oldest child (opposed to our favorite youngest child) in the meantime!

Jake has done so well this week adjusting to things. Seth has been back at work since Wednesday and I think Jake has enjoyed having just him and mommy time again. He is still having to adjust to sharing the attention but I am doing my best to keep the focus on Jake while he is awake…and then loving on Drew a lot when he is asleep!


The boys both have a shirt/onesie with this tie…I did my best to get a brother picture but so far have been unsuccessful. We took newborn pictures for Drew earlier this week and I thought for sure we could manage one of those cute, unforgettable, loving sibling pictures.

Again, amateur mom! We were just lucky that Jake didn’t squash the little guy. Sigh.


At least he loves his brother’s bouncy seat! And he should, seeing as he spent hours upon hours in this thing when he was younger.


We’ll just pray it doesn’t break!


Say cheese! If you know Jake, you know he HATES sunglasses. I’m not sure why but he usually screams if you try and put them on.

Not yesterday! Kiddo thought it was so funny…I would put them on and say “say cheeeeeese!” and he’d get a huge grin on his face. Oh I love him!


I know I sound like a sap, but I’ve just been so proud of him this week. I feel like he’s really growing up. Jake has been so cooperative – running to his high chair when it’s time to eat, cleaning up his toys, following directions, going to bed without a fight…where did my baby go?? It has made this week sooo much easier on me and I just love him more and more every day!

I’m not sure what Seth and I have done to deserve two precious little boys!
