Jett is walking!

This is the best video I have so far, when I get my camera out, he decides he feels like crawling... Silly guy. Maybe if I get a better one I'll post it later.

Nine month update

Holy moly, I can't believe my little baby is already 9 months old. Boy, how time flies. He is not little anymore, he's a big boy. He's wearing 12-18 month clothes, and size 5 shoes. He loves food. Of any kind. He hasn't met a baby food he didn't like, and he's loving the tastes of foods that we give him from our dinners. I think his favorite so far is pasta. I can not get it to his mouth fast enough, he can't get enough.

I have found that Jett is a very good name for my little man. Everywhere he goes, he's in a hurry. He is crawling, but he has one speed, fast! I've had to rearrange things in my home, make sure doors are closed, and hide the dogfood. He likes to go explore, but not for long. If he looks around and doesn't see me or David, he starts whining as he crawls, until he finds us. He has such a fun personality, he makes me laugh all the time. He is standing really well too. I almost want to push him over, because I know he wants to walk soon. He pulls himself up on everything, walls, furniture, my legs, anything he can find.

He is so smart. I don't have a lot of experience with babies, and I may be a bit biased ;) but he is too smart for me! The way he picks things up, analyzes it, turns it over, he is so focused! He amazes me. He knows his name really well, and knows when I want him to come to me. He smiles all the time, and flirts. He will smile at someone, then hide his face in my shoulder. What a character! He is such a good baby, and a huge blessing in my life.

Jett loves taking baths, he splashes in the water and cries when he has to get out.

Happy Happy Mothers Day

First of all, I do need to apologize for not blogging for a long long time. Being a new mom has really taken up al of my time, with trying to catch up on sleep the rest of it. Sorry, sleep trumps blogging.

Well, I had an absolutely wonderful Mothers Day. It was my first one being a mom, as last year we found out that Jett was coming right after mothers day. My husband got me a ton of flowers, a really cute card from him, and also a cute card from Jett as well. He even made the card special by using one of Jetts Pictures for the front. (My baby is way cuter than any greeting card baby, so I definitely appreciated that.) And he carefully had Jett color o the inside of the card, like he signed it. So freaking cute. I love it, and will always treasure it.

Jett is now over four months old. I can't beleive that he is so big already! At his 4 month drs appointment, he weighed in at a whopping 16lbs 12oz! He is a big boy. One scary thing that the Dr did find though, was his lungs were wheezing. We are doing a few breathing treatments a day, and went back for a follow up, and our Dr said that he probably has asthma. While not the end of the world, it is still a blow to know that my baby is having breathing issues. So we are treating his symptoms, and hoping that he will grow out of it soon. I love being a mom, and he is such a wonderful little guy. Everyday with him is a new adventure. He's also teething like crazy, which is kicking our butt, and making him a drool monster. Well, Mr. Grumpy Butt is waking from his nap, so better go. Pictures will come soon.

Jett pictures

Becoming a mom has been quite the adventure so far. Jett is already 2 months old, and the time has flown by. He's already so much bigger, and I just want him to stay small! My baby is getting to be a chunky monkey complete with tiny rolls and thunder thighs! For now, he's immobile, he stays put where I leave him, but that's not going to last long, he is so strong, I thinks he's going to walk before he crawls. I love being his mom, he's such a miracle. I can't wait until his cousin Izzy gets here, maybe in a month or sooner! The two of them are going to be such fun. Here's my baby, isn't he the cutest?

Jetts birthday story

On new years day, we went out to celebrate Molly day, my sister Molly's birthday. Also my brother Telly was about to ship out to Afghanistan for the national guard, so it was our last holiday together as a family for a while. We went to see a movie, True Grit, and after went out to dinner at a buffet, where we ate a big meal.

After dinner I started feeling what I thought were braxton hicks contractions, they weren't very regular and they didn't hurt that much. So I thought I was fine, and we went over to my parents house to play games for Mollys birthday. David and i sat on the couch together and I would mention to him whenever I felt a braxton hicks. We took a family picture, cuz we didn't know if Telly was getting shipped out the next day, and then we left around midnight.

Looking back, it was pretty obvious I was having real contractions, but maybe I was in denial, or just not expecting it so soon. So we got home, and I thought I was just really tense, so I took a bath, and David watched one of his recorded football games, and when I got done, I told him that maybe we should go to the hospital, just to check it out. My pains weren't going away, and I was getting things ready to go to the hospital, since it was over 2 weeks before my due date, I hadn't gotten my bag all packed yet. David says to me, are you sure you just didn't eat something weird at the buffet? And how disappointed are you going to be when they just send you home? I'm still in denial at this piont, so he tells me to go lie down, and time my pains. I go to the bedroom, and sit in a chair, and I feel a little better. I call David to me, and when he comes to the room, I puke. There was no warning, I barely got to the trash can. So he sees it, and suggests that I have food poisoning. He puts me in bed, and cleans up my mess, even got out the carpet cleaner and cleans the carpet. I was trying to time my pains in bed, but it didn't make sense, cuz they were only a minute or two apart. (Duh, Robin) David got done cleaning the carpet, and all of a sudden, I feel a pop, and it felt weird. I tell my husband that either my water just broke, or just less myself. This makes him get into gear, grabbing my bag and taking direction from me, the camera, the phone chargers, my shampoo, and I take my pillow and a towel to sit on and go out to the car. We finally get everything, and go to the hospital. We went to the maternity wing, and go into the triage room to check me, and then I puke again. All over the floor. Sorry. So the nurse calls the maintenance guy, and I'm sitting there having rough contractions while waiting on the guy to mop the floor. (the contractions got way worse after my water broke) Finally he's done, and the nurse checks me, and I ask, still in denial, so am I in labor? She says immediately that my water for sure broke, and then after a second tells me, and your completely dilated. Here's where I go to freak out mode. They had to yell at me to keep me from hyperventilating. Everything got really crazy, they were asking me all the health questions, trying to get David to go move the car, go down and finish registering me, and move me to a laboring room. I get into the bed, and get this weird pressure feeling, like I need to push. The nurses call David back from down the hall, and they call the on call doctor. I start pushing, the doctor gets there, and with no epidural, or pain meds, Jett was born less than 40 minutes after arriving at the hospital. I was telling the nurses that I wanted the epidural, and they told me it wouldn't make any difference by then. David was so good, taking care and comforting me, and I brought up that he didn't believe me that I was in labor! He said, but you were so calm!

Jett arrived on January 2, at 4:01 am, 7lbs 7oz, and 19.5in. He's perfect, the best thing in the world. My life has changed forever, I'm so in love with him.
