Forgotten Little Philli

Poor Philli! We spoiled her so rotten that it has been a bit traumatic for her to share us with another baby. The first few days home with Jace she would just sit in the corner of the room and watch us from a distance. She is starting to adjust now, although you can still tell she is jealous and hurting for attention. Hopefully, when Jace gets older, he will give her all the attention she wants and more!

The Chin!

If anyone is wondering where Jace got his clef chin from... Here it is! Grandpa Stevens was shot in the chin by an Indian when he was a young boy. The arrow pierced him so deeply that the mark has now shown up on his posterity! (Actually, Jace had it coming to him from both sides of the family. There is no way the kid could have avoided it. Not that he would have wanted to. We think it is cute! Grandpa Stevens says it is a heck of a hard thing to shave though!)

3 weeks

Wow! Three weeks old! It is crazy how fast the time has gone by and CRAZY how fast this kiddo is growing. Each day we notice new growth and changes. Jace still sleeps most of the time but he is so much fun. Nate and I spend hours just staring at him! We love our little guy!

One Week Old

It is hard to believe that Jace is already one week old. He is one sleepy little guy. Our first few days with him we could hardly get him to wake up to eat. Of course that is different now. Now he just wants to eat all of the time and take cat naps between feedings. He is so much fun though and we love him to pieces!

First day home from hospital

Daddy and Jace

Nate is such a good dad! He is so loving and careful with Jace. And... believe it or not, he has been changing lots of poopy diapers. If that isn't love, I don't know what is!

Day 2

The nurses at the hospital can swaddle a baby like nobody's business! Nate and I have yet to swaddle Jace in a way that he can't bust out of.
