Meet Baby Jake

I've been meaning to post since the second I had him, but of course it doesnt work that way. Jake was born on Sept. 10tht @ 8:02am. Being that I had a C-section the recovery has been hard but Im feeling better every day. The hardest part is not being able to be with Tessa the way I'd like to be. She misses hanging out with mommy and knows that life has changed. Even though her life has been turned upside down over the last week or so shes been great and has begun to accept that Jake is here to stay. I'm almost back to myself, but thank God for pain medication because there are times throughout the day where my body aches in every place and without it I would be lost!

My mom has taken off for two weeks to help with Tess and I dont know what I would have done without her help. She's been great and Tessa just loves her Nana! Poor Nana is exhausted after a fully day with her and I know that shes in heaven when Tess goes down for a nap...the amount of energy that girl has should be bottled and patented because its insane! Her happiness equals her energy and its such a blessing every day to see her sweet smiles.

Here are some pictures of Jake. I'll post more when I have more time.

5 Days left!!

I am so excited to meet this little guy who has been growing in me for 9 months. I cant wait to see the fists that have been hitting my right side forever now. At this point he is still breach and its too late for him to turn around-there is simply no room! So one way or another I would have had to have a C-section this time around whether I wanted it or now. I have to say, it does make things a lot easier knowing that Im going in on Friday morning and he will be here soon thereafter. Life is about to get extremely hectic again and of course its right when Tess is getting easier and she's on such an easy schedule...but Rob and I have never been ones to like things easy. We're always about challenges and Lord, this will be interesting!! Everyone says that its sooo hard going from one to two kids and Im sure that they are right, but i had a very hard time when I lost my freedom and independence after having Tessa. Now that I've adjusted to it I really think that things will be ok (chaotic, but not insane).

If any of you have any last minute pieces of advise pass it on!! I'm sure that I oculd use it.

Being that I havent been able to post as much as I'd like the next one will probably be a picture of Mr. jake. I cant wait for all of you to meet him!

Love you all and keep the three of us in your prayers on Friday morning.
