Week Three With Jesse

Jesse is three weeks old today! Even though this week has been a reality check for Jamie and myself as far as lack of sleep setting in, and our workload with four kids-two of which are babies--it has been a wonderful week. Everyone is doing so well and our blessings are never ending.

I can tell Jesse is growing. He is filling up more of the length of his swaddle blanket and bath cushion this week.

What do I love about Jesse this week:

  • Holding him on my shoulder. I love to have his face so close to mine and hear his sweet baby breaths.
  • Watching him sleep. I love newborn sleep expressions.
  • Baby breath, yes, that's right--it smells so sweet.
  • His hair, it is so fluffy and I can style it already:-).

I know all of these things will be gone so quickly. Before I know it Jesse will be sitting up, crawling and then walking. I want to enjoy each little phase with him. I truly enjoyed all of Jack's baby moments and want the same with Jesse. He is such a sweet baby and we all love him so very much.

Here are some pictures from this week. Jesse in his bouncy seat:

With his Pop Pop, I promise he likes him:-):


  1. GOSH! They grow sooo quick! My lil guy is 3 weeks old today too! LOL! We must have had them on the same day! Check him out on my blog! :)

  2. he is such a cutie and always so alert! He has grown alot in 3 weeks! :)

  3. I love how he looks so confused in all these pictures, with a look of who are all these people?

  4. Sooo sweet, he is getting big so fast. Can't wait to see him! Love you

  5. That's one of my favorite things, too! When I put Andrew on my shoulder and I hear his tiny baby breathing noises. So cute and cuddly! I also like the way Andy's neck smells! Babies smell so sweet.

  6. What a sweetheart he is! I can tell his face has filled out a bit too. He's gorgeous!

  7. I just love his facial expressions - what a gorgeous boy.

  8. He is so adorable! I can't get over how much hair he has - Lily has the most hair of any of my kids, and she doesn't have anywhere near that much. They do grow up so quickly, I feel like at this age they change hour by hour...

    I hope you start getting some more sleep soon as Jesse grows and gains weight...
