6 week pictures!

We are so thankful to Kyle Runner for taking Jacob's 6 week photos! He did a fabulous job and Jacob was so alert and sweet the entire time. I often think how spoiled we are to have such a good baby. Now, these pictures are rediculously cute. Thank you so much Kyle for the amazing work!!
Jacob in a basket....I think we should have taken this one when he was a little bit smaller, but it's still cute.
I am in LOVE with this little man...

playing on his jungle mat!

I mean, I know I'm his mom, but I don't think there could be anyone cuter than this baby!

Where has the time gone?

Friends told us that the first weeks after Jacob was born would fly by, and I believe it now! Jacob is 6 weeks old today and so much has happened in the last 6 weeks and our lives are forever changed. I never thought that after waking up throughout the night, changing diapers as my job and being the "milk lady" as Reece calls it would still allow me to enjoy my son so much....despite all the hard things about these past few weeks, the sweet moments have overshadowed them all! We look at Jacob multiple times each day and well over with happiness...he is so cute and sweet! There have been a few hard things that we're glad to be past now--Jacob had a hard time putting weight on in the first weeks and didn't regain his birth weight until his 4th week of life. He also had to have minor surgery on his mouth because he was "tongue tied" and that was keeping him from eating what he needed. It was a really easy procedure that happened when he was 9 days old and we're so glad we did it! OK, now for what everyone wants to see... I want to share a few of my favorite pictures from recently:

So excited to be 1-month old!

baby Jacob!

Reece, Jacob and I when we arrived home from the hospital! Jacob wore the outfit Reece wore home when he was a sweet!

So, Jacob is 1 month old and I'm just now getting on our blog to announce that he has arrived! Jacob Cameron Johnson was born on December 9th, 2009....7 lbs and 14 oz! He is the most precious baby we've ever met! (...of course we're pretty partial!) It's hard to believe that he is already 1 month old....he has already changed quite a bit and looks just like Reece! What a lucky little guy!

Since coming home from the hospital we have been so thankful to get to be home, getting adjusted to life for the past month. Jacob is amazing and lets us sleep a good bit...we are really thankful for that! I'll update more pictures and news as it happens!
