Jack is 1 month old

We've kept him alive and well for a whole month! Actually, one month and one day! One month of a baby's life goes much faster than one month of pregnancy. It's a lot more fun too.

So yesterday, we took a few pictures to mark the occasion. We took pictures with the bear from Dad. When you look at these pictures and compare them to the first photos with the bear when he was four days old, you can see how he has grown. It's most obvious in his face.

It's fun to look back over the last month and see how far we have come. Jack is now consistently eating on a three-hour schedule, occasionally he goes even a little longer. His eyes are working together now too instead of rolling around separately. He stares at both Steve and me pretty intently. He is starting to smile with his eyes open now. We've caught him smiling at us a few times; although I'm still not positive it's not gas.

Today was pretty fun. I think I caught him starting to roll over. We often lay him on his back on the couch with us, and I did that today while I was on the phone with my mom. Jack started to kick his legs and rolled onto his left side. I put him back on his back and he did it again. He didn't get all the way over to his tummy though. So now I'm watching him like a hawk!

This picture cracks me up. It looks like he knows he's doing something sneaky.

Well, that's the update. Hope you enjoy the photos!

He kinda looks like you (Karen) when you were a baby...a little like Cathy, too. I like his big forehead =).

Have I submitted 2 or 3 comments here? I feel like every time I try to post, it gives me a blank screen, but then I just noticed that it says that it will post after approval.

If that is what happened, sorry about that! Gosh, I was trying so hard to leave a comment!!
