Jace’s Baby Walker

Jace has been cracking me up lately. And also melting my heart. At church last week, the ladies in Jace’s Sunday school class let him take home the baby he’d been playing with, which he had named “Baby Walker.” And ever since, it’s been his favorite little companion around the house. He’s quite the motherly type .. changing his diaper when I change Walker’s, he entertains him by playing with him, puts him in the boba, rocks him to sleeps, shhhhhs him, feeds him, bathes him … even BREASTFEEDS him. hahahahaha So funny. I had to remind him that boys don’t have milk in their boobs >D

Walker at 2 months

My Walker baby is 2 months already!  And Oh my god! I love him so much! He’s smiling like crazy and babbling all the time. He’s staying more awake during the day and sleeping more at night, at least for a longer stretch in the beginning. He’s got a little cradle cap that we’re trying to doctor up and take care. Other than that, he’s 16.5lbs of loooooove. He loves to sleep and be rocked on his side, and he loves our bed (my fault!). He’s a master at breastfeeding and has the cutest toes. And bless his little heart, he sure does tolerate Jace’s constant love and attention and poking and hugging and holding and petting >DD I think they’ll be close brothers, once Walker knows who Jace is, hahaha. I just can’t get enough of Walker and stare at him all day long, even when he’s sleeping. His little rolls and triple chins are amazing. They also require a lot of cleaning! Also, don’t ever put coconut oil on a baby to help with dry skin. The next day it will smell like BARF. His fussiness is evening out and I’m far more in tune with his needs and how to entertain and soothe him. Now Rob just needs to get more practice ;)

Walker’s first bath

IMG_3422 Of course, I had to document!!! This time around we knew to put a couple warm wash clothes on his belly, and he was a happy camper, and with every bath since! Such a little sweetie. And Jace loves to help, too. Saving for the baby books!

Maternity leave is da bomb

IMG_3369The title says it all. I love maternity leave. Every minute of it. This time around Rob hasn’t had any time off, but that’s OK. I’m just fine having Walker allll to myself. Dropping Jace off at daycare still stings and breaks my heart, but I know the routine and activity during the day with his friends is better for him than watching me breastfeed all day. I do take my time in the morning with the boys though and don’t rush, which is nice. I get some extra time in with Jace and do breakfast and some play time, and then by the time Rob is home, we sort of do a little hand off and I’m with Jace and he’s with Walker, and back and forth. We’re constantly trying to balance the two to make sure we spend time with both boys.
