Jack's First Snowfall!!

This morning we got some snow flurries!! Nothing stuck to the ground but it was fun to watch Jack looking at the snow falling...it's the first time he has ever seen it. Here's the link a little video I took of him watching it out the window. (It was too big to upload directly here.)

The Drama King!

Here's Jack on November 11th. Whenever I give him these little sweet potato puffs to eat he makes the funniest faces and then does this fake cough. Soooo dramatic!! video

Saying Mama??

This video is from October 28th. We'd been practicing trying to get Jack to say "mama". He is very cranky but sounds like he's saying it over and over. Perhaps his first word!!?? Such a big boy growing up so fast!! video

Jack's First Laugh!!!

Jack laughed for the very first time today!!! He did it when I was tickling him this afternoon. When Chris came home he was playing with him and Jack laughed again (a lot) and we caught it on video. It's the cutest thing ever! Here are two clips.

Jack & Cousin Carter





Last week Jack met his new cousin Carter for the first time. I grew up with my cousin Brooke (we are about a year apart) and now our 2 little boys are going to grow up together! Carter was born May 2nd so is about 1 month younger than Jack. You can really notice the difference in size! We are going to get the two babies together again in August (Brooke and Carter live in Connecticut) and see how much bigger they are in just 2 months!




Here are some pics from their visit!

Jack's First Date!!



Jack had his first "date" last Saturday. My good friend Rose had her daughter Hannah about 6 weeks before Jack was born. She was in town last weekend so we got the two babies together. This was the first time Jack was around another baby. I thought they would be fascinated with each other but they payed no attention to one another at all!! Oh, well...I'm sure that will change soon :) Here are some pics from their visit together....too cute!

Sugarland Fan!!

Here's a video of Jack watching a Sugarland concert on TV. (Sugarland is a country group for those of you who may not know) He must have been used to listening to them in the womb because when he's very fussy and won't calm down, if I turn on their concert he quiets right down!! Works every time!

7 weeks old!!

Here is a video I took last week of Jack. He LOVES his bouncy seat but only for about 15 minutes...then it's no fun anymore!! He likes to look at the little giraffe and elephants that hang from it and he's starting to smile...it's the best!!

Baby Jack is Here!!!

Little Jack Christopher Green arrived at 11:56pm on Tuesday April 1st...28 hours after my induction began. I was induced because I had developed pre-eclampsia. The only way to "cure" it is to deliver the baby and since I was over 37 weeks, I was considered full-term so the safest thing to do was have the baby. He is absolutely perfect and Chris and I have been home for about 5 days now with him...it's a big adjustment and we are definitely sleep deprived but are loving every second!!

Here is a video Chris took just after he was born...he's only about 10 or 15 minutes old. Hope you all enjoy!! He can't wait to meet everyone!!

Baby's Room

Here is a video I took of the baby's room today...it is now almost done!! Chris did most of the painting in the past few weeks...he did a really good job. This weekend we put up the border together...it now looks like a real baby's room. We have ordered new carpet and it should be installed within the next 2 or 3 weeks in time for the shower on March 1st!

I took my 1 hour glucose test the other week and failed!! My blood sugar levels were too high. I had to go back on Monday for a 3 hour test. It was NOT fun...I had to get my blood taken 4 times and drink this gross sugary drink (it was twice as strong as the 1hour one) which made me feel sick and jittery and light-headed. Chris was sweet enough to come with me since they make you sit there for the whole three hours in the lab waiting room...I'm glad he came to keep me company. I got the results today and I don't have gestational diabetes (thank goodness) but one of my blood draws came up high so the doctor said to avoid sweets, candies, cookies, etc. (ahhh!! my favorites!!)

Well, that's about it so far in baby news...next doctor's appointment is next Tuesday, February 12th.

Doctor's Appointment

I had my doctor's appointment today and Chris came with me to this appointment. I was suppossed to get a glucose test done where I have to drink a very sweet sugary drink then wait an hour and get my blood taken to test to see if I have gestational diabetes. I was also suppossed to get a shot of Rhogam which any pregnant woman who has a negative blood type needs to get around this time in her pregnancy. However, apparently there was some blood work that they should have had me do at my last appointment and never did and I couldn't get the shot and the glucose test done until that blood work was done and they had the results. So....now I'm planning to go back on Friday to get the glucose test done and then have an appointment next week for the Rhogam shot...all fun stuff!!

The doctor said I needed to come back for my regular appointment in 3 weeks and then start coming in every 2 weeks thereafter....now I know we're getting towards the end!!!

3D Ultrasound



Chris and I had a 3D Ultrasound done last Thursday, January 17. It was amazing!! We saw the baby moving, yawning and playing with his feet...it was too cute!! He had his head up under my right ribcage with his feet down kicking my bladder...he liked to snuggle up under my ribs :) Here are some pictures from the ultrasound!!
