Three weeks old . . .

I'm amazed that Jackson is already 3 weeks old! Where has the time gone?! He smiled at me today for the first time (twice actually) while he was awake. I took some pictures later of him kind of smirking (see the links below) but I wish I could have captured that smile. It was amazing.

Jack's in this phase where he DOES NOT sleep. He slept for about an hour this morning and an hour this afternoon. THe rest of this time he's either awake and happy or awake and fussy. It's kind of tiring. Shouldn't he still be sleeping qite a bit?

We took Jack with us and some friends to the Beach Bar yesterday for lunch. We're just realizing that we can't do things like go out to lunch for a while. It's not fair to our friends who have to deal with a fussy baby the whole time and it's not as much fun for us. Today, however, has been so refreshing. Kyle and I have been home all day today. We took Jack & Murphy on a walk (and it was nice even though Jack wailed for the last 5 minutes of it). We ordered lunch and had it delivered. I have not paid the bills, folded clothes or done anything I've needed to do, but I did get a lot of sleep and relaxation!

I'm feeling down today about the fact that I'm not even close to fitting into last summer's clothes. I don't want to have to go out and buy a whole new wardrobe in a bigger size. And I don't want to have to wear maternity clothes all summer. It's really depressing. And even though I'm committed to breastfeeding, I'm hating it right now. It's really disappointing. I hate the fact that I can't find shirts or bras that fit. I hate not being able to find a comfy position while he's eating. I hate many things about it that I won't discuss here. I really hope it starts to get better soon.
