Silver to Gold

So I am trying the gold can for a while. Hopefully, this is temporary and in no way will be a lifestyle change for me. I'm having a hard time with this, but am willing to try for my spawn. Man, I love this kid.
In other news... the other night Blaine tried to change his pillow's diaper instead of Jake's. It was awesome. Sleep-walking is hilarious.

More Pictures of Baby Jake

Well, we've known our little man Jake now for almost three weeks, and have taken an embarrassing amount of pictures of our little boy. Here are some favorites.
He's doing great. He's a great sleeper (in the day), a great eater, a champion grunter, and such a cuddler. We love him more than we thought possible. We are also more tired than we thought possible. Oh well. :)

JAKE PICTURES up the ....

I promised Alicia I would keep putting pictures on here as I get new ones, so this may be one (more) of many photo posts from Laurel. They are planning on leaving the hospital tomorrow (Thursday) morning, with both Alicia and Blaine's mothers in town for a few days to help take care of them. They are all doing great!

It's a Boy!

And what a boy!

Alicia's sister, Laurel, here. These pictures are rather inferior to this actual sweet boy (sorry, at work and don't have my "real" camera's pictures uploaded yet - there will be plenty of those tomorrow), but I knew you would want to see any and all visuals of this little man. We love him!!!
