Grandma and Grandpa are here... I have time to blog tonight!

My parents have been here since Friday night, which has been beyond wonderful.  I've been looking forward to their visit for months.  We've just been hanging around the house, and that's just fine with us.  Brent's best friend, Jonathan, got married in West Lafayette yesterday, and it worked out that he could fly home for the wedding since my parents are here with us.  It was a quick trip and he's home already, but I'm sure he appreciated a day away and a full night of uninterrupted sleep.

Chicky head on his first BOB ride.

Speaking of sleep, I can't complain at all.  Jack is an excellent night sleeper so far with the exception of a few bad nights last week.  This will probably change, but for now I'm enjoying it.

His arms and legs are constantly crossed like a mummy, or yoga pose gone awry.

Breastfeeding is going fairly well but we're working on increasing my supply.  It's a supply meets demand issue, and I'm pretty sure Jack would eat all day long if I could stand it.  One breastfeeding blog recommends doing a "nursing vacation" where you stay in bed for two to three days and just nurse the baby pretty much all day and night.  OMG - I don't know how the term "vacation" is applicable at all in that scenario.  All in all, we're doing well with feedings and I'm just keeping my fingers crossed for a big weight gain on Tuesday.

  My first package!  It was an adorable octopus named Mr. Sock-t-pus from our friends Drew and Hugh

Is there room on your lap for me too, Mom??

I just can't believe he's mine.
