Jack - 4 Months!

I think I missed his 3 month post, but Jack is 4 months old today!

He is sweet and happy and healthy and resilient and loud and chunky and fun!

Last week he got up every hour and a half every night.  This week, he goes to bed at 8pm, up at 2am, then up for the day at 8am.  I like this week more than last week!!!!

My current favorite personality trait:  I lay him across my lap to get ready to feed him.  He chuckles (like a fat kid) for the 13 seconds it takes for me to get my shirt up.  Seriously cannot have a bad day around this baby!

His sisters love him.  Big time.

I leave you with this:

You are loved, little monkey,

Heart on the Outside

I've heard a quote that goes a little something like this:
Having children is choosing to walk around with your heart on the outside.

True Story.

The girls started "school" today.  It's a sweet, little Mother's Day Out program at a nearby church.  Kate was so excited, and didn't even know when I left.  I had to peel Lauren off my leg and leave her crying.  It made me remember that feeling...and it's a terrible feeling.  

I can force myself to be social, and given a few drinks, I can be the life of the party...BUT, I really don't like new social situations, and can be pretty shy.  Little Lu is a little like her Momma.

They have each other.  It's only two days a week.  I get to spend some quality time with Jack.  They are learning about Jesus.

It still feels like my heart is on the outside...


P.S. I've already called and checked on them...they were outside playing and having fun.  Lu only cried for a couple of minutes, and Kate is accident free!  This may become a really good thing!!!
