one week old.

I can’t believe Jace is already a week old today. When I told Jasper that today was the baby’s one week birthday-- he ran out of my room cheering and hollering to everyone that it was Jace’s birthday. 
Honestly, I’m a little sad that he’s already one week old. I know it sounds strange, but I love holding onto the newborn stage. It just seems like they all grow up so fast. Right now, I am really just soaking up my new little baby Jace and how much I love him. 
I’m so blessed to be his Mommy. And he knows it. I can honestly say he knows who his Mommy is-- he definitely seems to be the happiest when I’m holding him. 
Chris and I think he looks like Charlie. And his reddish hair reminds us of a little Irish gentlemen or one of England’s princes with his coloring. 
Chris has been calling him Jedi Jace. And River and Jasper call him by his whole name, Jace Jedidiah. 
He eats every two hours and is doing absolutely great nursing-- which makes things really easy for me. I’ve had some babies who weren’t so easy. 
I’m really thankful for my new recliner since me and Jace end up sleeping in it quite a bit. It’s made the night feedings much much easier for me. 
I’ve really been making sure that I take my morning shower everyday and get at least semi-dressed. It helps me feel better when the post-pregnancy hormones start to act up. And Chris has been trying to get me out for some fresh air even if I stay in the car with the baby. 
I do plan on posting about my delivery soon, but until then, just know that I am in love and feel so blessed and amazed that God has blessed me to be Jace’s Mommy. He was always meant to be in our family.
