Well, it's getting a little easier everyday. He slept for 4 1/2 straight hours last night before he woke up, so today is a good day! The breastfeeding is also going good now. Those first ten days or so were brutal, but now I'm so glad I stuck with it. Here are some pics from his 2nd and 3rd week of life.

Here he is in his air jordan outfit.

This is one of his favorite new gadgets! I get a lot more done when I have my hands free. Since I am home by myself during the day, the only way I could get a picture was to take it through the mirror. His skinny legs crack me up. He obviously got those from his daddy, not his mommy.

I think he looks more like Chad everyday.

We're making it!

My mom went home on Saturday so today was my first day at home alone with Cohen. The only thing I had on our "to do" list today was to start getting him on his 3 hour schedule. He did pretty good for the first day... we'll see how he sleeps tonight. The hardest thing is trying to keep him awake so that he can get his days and nights straight. It's amazing how fast your day goes by when it revolves around eating, sleeping and pooping! I'm trying really hard to get this schedule down because I'm going to start working again next week. Even though I office from home and don't have to get dressed and drive to work, I still have to get things done from here. Hopefully Cohen will cooperate. Oh by the way, why didn't anyone tell me that you can love someone this much? I know part of it is my hormones, but I'm brought to tears almost everyday just because I feel overwhelmed with how much I love him and Chad both. I wasn't prepared for how much I would love my son, but I've also been surprised by this new level of loving my husband. I thought I couldn't love him anymore than I already did, but I was wrong. There is a newness that I wasn't expecting and it's wonderful! Ok, enough of the mushy stuff. Here are a few pics for you guys...

We watched our first Cowboys game together as a family last night. Cohen says, "GO COWBOYS!!"

I finally caught his little, goofy smile he does while he's sleeping on camera!

Bathtime!!!!!!!!! He loves this!
