An update

It has been a really long time since I have updated. I'm sorry to friends and family who have been wanting an update on Jayden.
Life has been really busy. Something I wasn't expecting!! I figured since I didn't have to work- I would just have the baby I would be able to accomplish a lot in a day. Not so!! I feel like Im feeding him and changing him ALL the time. That with housework I don't seem to have a spare second. It seems kind of lame- Hopefully I'll be able to learn how to manage my time and priorities better. Especially since I'll be going back to work soon! :)
Jayden will be six weeks old tomorrow! Time sure has flown! Ryan measured him two days ago and Jayden was almost 24 inches long. That means he has been growing about a half inch a week! Two weeks ago at the Dr's he weighed 10 1/2 pounds. I am AMAZED at how fast he is growing. Im anxious for the future and to watch him develop but it's kind of scary that it's happening so fast.
He has been sleeping really well. He has slept through the night a couple of times. Typically he wakes up around 5 in the morning. We stay up till six. And then we sleep until 9:30 or 10. Yet I'm still exhausted. I need to go to bed earlier!
Speaking of sleeping- his sleep schedule has been SO WEIRD. People ask me if he sleeps a lot, and it totally depends on the day because I have given two very different answers.
Yesterday he was awake for nine hours without a nap. It drove me nuts!!! But two days before he slept the entire day. I think he was awake a total of 2 hours. I'm not sure whats going on with that.
Here is a video of Jayden- my commentary included :)

And... a few pictures taken over the last few weeks

oh man I love that boy! He's so precious! It was so good to see you guys last night- we have definitely missed the Sorensens!

What a stud! He IS growing fast! He seems to tolerate his tummy really well. That's good! Oaklee hated her tummy for the longest time.

You could totally tell that he was focused on tummy time. So cute!
My babies just cried because they didn't like it at all.
He is sweet.
I want to hold him sometime!!

Jed and Sabrina said...

He is so precious! Especially since I am holding him right this second. I didn't even know he was here until he made some noise. What a sweetie.
