Jude is one month old!

He's starting to smile. This is the closest thing to photographic evidence I've gotten so far:

He weighs almost 8 and a half pounds now, which means he's gained more than two pounds in less than a month, counting from his lowest weight, which was 6 lbs. 2 oz. This is amazing to me and very gratifying. Isobel never gained weight as quickly as she was supposed to. She weighed only 7 lbs. at her one-month checkup. So yay! Good job, Jude. And good job, me! I provided the food.
And here we have domestic bliss with Nana:

Nana (my mom) leaves on Sunday and I don't know what I'm going to do! I'm spoiled. I've loved not having to cook or clean or entertain Isobel. My mom RULES. She even brought The Princess and the Frog for Isobel. We hadn't seen it, and had a cozy movie night together.
(Yes, that's our macbook, sitting on a chair in front of the couch. You get creative when you don't have a TV.)

Nana took us to the zoo! Isobel got to brush goats and sheep. I politely declined.

This is so cute. Sounds like you guys had a good time with Emily. I love the picture of your mom with both beautiful babes. I could totally tell Jude is smiling in the second photo.

NO WAY! 1 month already! Watch out, he'll be a Sunbeam, in HS and off on a mission before you know it! Your Mom is the best! She is a great example to all ... enjoy the last few days of help. You can do it! Enjoy it.
