Selfies (late post)

Zeke likes to take pictures and have his picture taken.

As you can tell, sister is not impressed.

Big brother jobs

Sometimes being a big brother means making sure you're not missing out...

Or it means helping mom out with a feeding...

Either way, he's doing a pretty good job :)

Adjustment to life

It's hard to say what behaviors of Zeke are because of the baby in the picture, or if it's just part of him growing up.

Since baby sister came home, Zeke has kind of been obsessed with my boobs. Heck, I've been obsessed with my boobs. All this milk struggles really gets a momma riled up! At any rate, it's been a segway to teach about "private parts" and how we shouldn't touch each other's parts. It's kind of working, but we'll see.

He's also gotten into this weird whining mood. For example, "Zeke, you need to go to sleep so you can go to school. If you do not listen, you will not get to use the iPad tomorrow." Crying he responds, "But I love the iPad!!!" It seems like he's more hysterical than crying, but you get the point. Like... for everything. So that has been, not fun to deal with.

Also, he has an awesome (sarcastic) chest cold. No fever, just congested cough and a few days of crazy snot nose. Sigh... the life of a family of four...

Can you tell which ones are Zeke?

Zeke loves to take pictures, and he loves to make silly faces. He also wanted some with sister in them...

Zeke is 2,3 &5!

Big Brother time

I would say Zeke has taken to being a big brother very well. He asked to hold her and he is fairly gentle with her. He points at her and says, "he's so cute..." And we are still correcting him on his pronouns (everyone is a boy). At any rate, we are grateful for his reaction to her.

Early pics (iPhone)

Excited big brother in the hospital.

Who knew baby sister's bath tub could be so exciting?

Already sharing the iPad ;)

I don't think we will be one of those color coordinated families... But this happened the other day (matching cloth diaper wth Zeke's shirt).

A Big Brother

Other than the fact that it has been ridiculously forever since momma bear's last post...

I thought we should update big brother's blog with a post, about his little sister. :)

Baby Sister Hannah made her debut on her due date, 28 Feb 2014 at 0851 AM. It's quite cute since about being three months pregnant, we have told Zeke that "baby sister is coming in February." As the days went by in February, I was so sure that Hannah was going to make an early appearance. Alas, not so much. On the 27th I had my 40 week appointment, where my membranes were stripped and I told my boss I was not returning to work afterwards (and he agreed with that decision). Since I was off work, Marcus and I went together to pick up Zeke. His teacher Ms. Shannon asked me when I was due, since Zeke kept talking about baby sister coming in February. And in class she had been talking about how February was a shorter month, there's only 28 days, and the month was almost over- which is apparently when Zeke piped in and said the month couldn't be over yet because baby sister hadn't come yet. I left preschool worried how I was going to explain to my son that babies come whenever they want... and we went home for the last time as a family of three.

True to the timing, she came right on time. And mom didn't have to explain the arbitrary date that doctors give babies for their arrival. :)
