5 Weeks!

Bradley is now 5 weeks old!

He's beginning to sleep a little less during the day, but more at night. I'll take that trade! He's still eating very well, considering I've had a couple infections and lost some of my milk for a couple days. I was able to get back on track and both Bradley and I are very happy. :) He's started cooing and it's soooooo cute! I'm also very happy that he takes a pacifier. It took about a week to get him to take it, but now if he wants it he'll take it with no problem. He also repsonds very well to Tyler trying to sooth him. Tyler will sing him a song, and most of the time he'll stop crying for a bit and just look at him. Sometimes it doesn't work, but it's nice when it does. As of now, car rides put him to sleep very fast, and he'll stay asleep for a few hours in his car seat. Don't know how long that will last. Well, for the most part, he's a very happy baby. I'm still adjusting obviously...Three kids is NOT a piece of cake. But we are all happy and healthy and that's what matters. I can't wait for my mom to come visit the day after Christmas and meet Bradley and see the boys!!

3 Weeks Old

I can't believe Bradley is already 3 weeks old! These past few weeks have absolutely flown by, and he has changed so much! I can't wait for his little personality to start showing. :) So far, my days (and nights) have consisted of feeding him, changing diapers, burping, wiping up spit up.....all while trying to keep Tyler and Josh happy. Let me tell ya....IT'S HARD! I still haven't gotten it through my head that I have THREE kids, but I sure am feeling it! The boys love him though and it's so sweet to see them kiss him or "shhhhh" him when he's crying. They are going to be such great friends when they grow up. My biggest challenge has a name though.....Josh. I was not prepared for this. Tyler was no problem when Josh came around and I was hoping that Josh would adjust just as well to Bradley. Not so much..... He's literally whining, screaming, crying 24/7! Well....except for when he's asleep (which takes a lot of effort to get him to do these days as well). I try my best to give him as much attention as possible when I'm not tending to Bradley, so I hope it catches up with him and he beings to behave normal again soon. :) I'm sure a lot of you mothers out there can relate. In the mean time, I'm just taking it day by day and making as few plans as possible. I think I'll be a home body for just a little bit longer. :) Here are a few pictures of my sweet little angel, Bradley. (He's beginning to become quite the chunker! 9lbs already!)

Here's my big angel, Tyler, playing with his "swords". Silly kid!
