Zane - Week One and Two

Here is a picture before his first Sunday at church.
All dressed and ready to go!
I love this little outfit - too bad he will only get to wear it once!

And a few Sunday selfies!

Life Lately

Here is a small glimpse into our life lately…

Our big boy, sleeping in his big boy bed!

Jaxen, and his “wings” (better known as Zane’s blanket).

Jaxen wanted to nap by Zane. It lasted all of 1 minute :)
It took him longer to get the blankets and get setup than his actual nap did!

My mom (Bebe) and Zane at church on Sunday morning.
They stayed like this the whole service!
He was one comfortable little guy.

And I’m so glad I asked someone to snap a few family pictures of us!

And Zane’s outfit was too small already that day…but I squeezed him into.
Please take note of how cute it was, because that will be the one and only time he wears it :(

This boy.
His frosty and the glasses his daddy made him.
This picture just makes me smile!

Zane cannot decide if he likes his bouncer seat or not. But I keep trying it!

Jaxen has officially decided he loves his baby brother Zane.
And even told me “Thank you for Baby Zane out of your belly!” the other day!
So funny.

This little face just melts my heart!

So does this one.
Even in undies, holding a nerf gun, and not sure where the bullet will go. Haha!

He is only 2 weeks old - yet he is starting to change and get bigger everyday :(

All three dressed for the day and ready to go!

My mom (Bebe) went home yesterday.
I was a little sad, but enjoyed her visit so much!
Before I dropped her off at the airport we had a very yummy lunch at Olive Garden
(a place she does not have where she lives).

Thank you so much mom, for coming to see us!

We gave Zane his first sponge bath at 4 days old. He really seemed to enjoy it!

I was the holder / picture taker and Nik was the washer.
And can I just say that there is something extra sweet about your 
husband, washing your newborn?
Just the gentleness and love that is portrayed in those moments is enough to melt my heart!

All clean, and oiled up!
After his little bath - he was so wide awake and alert.
It was fun to interact with him while he was awake - haha!

This sweet little boy is pretty chill - unless he is hungry!
And I just cannot get over those cheeks and all his rolls - I love them!

Sunday night he had his first ‘emerged’ bath in the sink.
And he loved it!

Sweet sweet little boy all ready for night night :)

Doctor - Week 2 Checkup

Friday we had Zane’s 2 week checkup!

He was back to his birth weight (in less than 2 weeks) :)

He had a clogged tear duct in his left eye.
I had to keep it clean and massaged a few times a day, and it’s all better now.

Other than that - he is a healthy and growing boy!
Unless something comes up, we do not see the doctor again until he is one month old.

Pics From The Last Two Weeks

For some reason - the blog post “Bebe is Here / Funny Jaxen Stories” got published after the “Comparison” post. So scroll down if you have not read it!

Pics from two weeks ago…

I have very few pictures of Jaxen and Zane together - 
and I think this one taken below was the last time Jaxen held Zane. 
He is just not interested in holding him! 
Nor, in having his picture taken! It makes me sad. 
I want a million pictures of them together, but Jaxen just refuses.

Seriously. The rolls. I love them.

He could not be any cuter!

This picture cracks me up!

And this picture is the sweetest. 
It is now the screensaver on my phone.

These crack me up!

 My friend Danielle came into town last weekend.
It was so good to see her, and Zane loved snuggling!


And here are a few pictures from earlier this week…

Zane - all dressed and ready for our first walk outside! 
I know this outfit looks a little too warm - but it was windy and cool on this day…
remember…. it is not summer here, like it is in the south! 

Plus, he will outgrow this outfit anyday - and it’s just too cute not to wear!

Our walk :)

We did not venture out too far - just to the church. Haha!
Jaxen wanted to stop in and see Ms. Terri. He loves him some Terri!

While we were there - Zane had his first blowout.
I’m talking out his clothes and up his back. Yuck! 
Just thought that should be documented :)

The above pics were taken on Monday - and on Tuesday his umbilical cord came off.

That face. So precious.

These next few pics were my best attempt at getting a few pictures of Jaxen and Zane together….

Jaxen wanted Zane to watch tv with him so I got them all setup in the living room. It went well!

And then Jaxen decided he wanted a second lunch. 
So I let him eat it while watching a show with his baby brother.
And Jaxen was pretty happy about that!

That evening, Jaxen had to go potty while we were driving. 
So we pulled over. Some days I am grateful that I have boys!

And I captured this sweet moment between Zane and his daddy 
the night before Nik went out of town.
