Baby Stories

I was laying on my back trying to show Jake what the baby does at 2am. That of course is his play time, waking me up and everything. Anyway, he goes CRAZY. It feels like he is doing flips while punching and kicking me at the same time. So I was laying on my back and Jake lays down, lays his head on my stomach and tries to freak the baby out by talking in a really deep but loud voice. Well it worked! The baby fired back by kicking him right in the face. It was pretty funny. I could not stop laughing. When I finally calmed down enough to let Jake try again, the baby kicked him right in the nose. That was it, I was done, I could not stop laughing long enough for Jake to continue. It was hilarious.

Our friends had their baby this last Thursday so we went to go visit them in the hospital, we took Jarren to see how he would respond to the baby. He did really well! He wanted to help hold him and give him kisses and everything. It was really cute. He even started calling him "Ma-hen" (Madden), even though we haven't decided on a name completely, apparently that's the one Jarren is sticking with. I tried to explain to him that it wasn't the baby from mommy's tummy and that this baby was Asher. He looked at me with a puzzled face and said "Asher? No Ma-hen." It was pretty funny trying to explain it to him.

We need to post some pictures to update. I'm hoping to do some maternity pictures with Jake and Jarren sometime soon so maybe we can post those.

I married a...

So the other day after class I asked Jake what he learned about that day. (In psychology) He told me that he learned about persistence. So joking around I said "Oh, so you learned about me" and looked up at him smiling. Without missing a beat he said, "no, we learned about nagging yesterday." and started laughing.

I married a comedian everyone.

It hurts to tell you "I told you so"

During the Superbowl last night Jarren was standing in front of the TV spinning in circles. I asked him to stop because I could just picture him falling and hitting his head (he's really good at falling down). He told me "no mom!" so I let him continue for a minute and was about to ask him to stop again when he fell and hit his head on our coffee table. He smacked right next to his eye on the very edge of the table. It was one of the worst noises ever! It instantly started bruising, I've never seen a bruise come on that fast. I felt so bad for him, I scooped him up right away and just started hugging him. I wanted to cry cause I could imagine the pain he was in. Jake jumped up and grabbed a bag of frozen veggies out of the freezer and stuck it on.

He wouldn't let us keep it on long but I told him if he wanted to hold it on he could. He did that for another minute, but couldn't take the cold so he stopped. Then we gave him some tylenol for the pain. I felt bad for my little man, I wish he would just learn to listen to me!
The first picture is right after it happened:
This was the next morning right after he woke up:
And this one is a little bit more into the day:
He's officially had his first black eye! So sad :(
