When I look at the top of my blog at all the blessings God has given us, I still can't believe Jonathan is here. And I am having a hard time accepting that he is already getting close to a month old. He will be 4 weeks old tomorrow, and a month old on Friday. Where has the month gone?! He has been a wonderful addition to our family. I can't picture our family without him, even on the nights that he doesn't sleep the best.
Mike has been so sweet during this month. I had been trying to get up and make him breakfast some mornings before he went to work... even when he left at 2:30am. Since Jonathan has been born, I don't think I have cooked breakfast. Most mornings when Mike leaves, I'm asleep on the couch w/ our little man b/c I didn't want him to wake Mike. Jonathan usually wakes to nurse around 2:30am, then wants to fight sleep. I just stay on the couch instead of taking the chance of him interrupting Mike's sleep. I want Mike well rested when he drives to Savannah.
I go back to the doctor tomorrow for my 4 week check-up. Yay! I had gotten used to seeing everyone so often during the last month of my pregnancy. I miss them all. I have spent so much time at Dr. Palmer's office the last few years that they all seem like extended family. I guess I need to get busy and make some goodies for them.
I want to share a few little sweet moments. No, I'm not trying to make you think the Hillians are perfect. There are a couple moments that really warmed my heart, so I wanted to share. Last Thursday night while I was trying to get my "gameplan" together for Black Friday, Laura came in w/ money in her hand. She said she needed me to pick up some gifts for the boys. She has been busy for a few weeks crocheting little gifts for Emily and Bekah.... hats for the Barbies, blankets for the doll house, etc. She wanted to make sure that he had gifts for all her siblings. Isn't that the sweetest?! I told her that I would be taking them shopping soon, and she could pick out gifts for the boys.
Another sweet moment was this morning. We have taught Emily how to put her waffle in the toaster, b/c she wanted to make her own breakfast like the big kids. This morning she made Luke a waffle also. She came and asked me to put Luke in his high chair b/c she made his breakfast. She even put butter and "a little bit of syrup" on it which we normally don't do b/c of the mess factor. I let him eat it, b/c his big sister had worked so hard on it. I didn't have the heart to tell her that he doesn't get butter and syrup.
I'm off to be productive. Love ya bunches!
