I can't believe how quickly babies become a part of your life. Baby Jake is only 24 hours old and already I can't imagine our family without him. I know he was meant to come to us. In honor of this 24 hour milestone, I want to post 24 things I LOVE about my sweet boy already:
1)His sweet red hair - I was hoping for another redhead!
2)The way he smiles in his sleep.
3)His BIG feet.
4)His soft cry. It's really more of a grunt - I have yet to hear him really cry!
5)His little fingers interlocking in funny ways when he sleeps.
6)His strong neck. He can already hold his head up!
7)The way he sighs. When he is awake he just never stops 'talking'.
8)His cute frog tongue. His tongue flicks in and out all the time.
9)The way he makes Will smile. Jake is definitely Will's brother - they look just alike and Will is so thrilled!
10)His calm personality. He is really quite content to gaze around.
11)His soft skin.
12)His yummy baby smell - how do babies automatically smell this way?!?
13)His scrunchy little nose.
14)His long fingernails. We already had to clip them this morning!
15)His round belly.
16)His long arms and legs tucked in like a little frog.
17)His name. I think Baby Jake is so sweet!
18)That he is ours. We love him so much already!
19)How much the boys love him. Drew just cried last night when Diana took them home because he wanted to see Baby Jake one more time.
20)Watching Nate hold him. You could just tell he was thrilled to be a big brother.
21)How happy Matt is to 'have our very own basketball team!'
22)Jake's serious expressions.
23)How he hates to be swaddled, already. He fights to free his hands.
24)How he completes our family. We are so blessed to be the parents of this little bundle of Heaven!
