More baby pics

I have been trying to get some pictures of his adorable smiles. They are so cute when I wake up in the middle of the night and he's crying and when I peek over his basinet he gives me the cutest smiles!

I love these ones, he's just staring at me as I click away at the camera!

Patty's Baby Party 2

Saturday morning turned out to be rainy and VERY stormy. It was cozy driving with Jon and the baby the 2 hours to Patty's house.
When we arrived, sure enough there was a buggy and horse drawn outside Patty's front yard.
When we went inside, we were met with babies and moms and kids! It seemed like Patty had a baby in her arms the whole time :) She was holding babies and busy making sure everyone got introduced and such.
The Mennonite girls made hundreds of cookies, I'm not kidding when I mean Hundreds, they were so delicious.
I had so much fun talking with the mothers that also had a home birth and I got to see their babies and hear their stories.
All the Amish mothers showed up, they were so sweet and eager to talk. I loved talking with them and meeting their children.
The party was supposed to be outdoors but with the rain we were inside. The whole house was full of moms and babies :)
Jon was 1 of 3 other dads there. He sat back and held the baby while I got to talk :) He still had a lot of fun even when surrounded by so many woman talking:)
I think Patty needs to have a baby party every 2 years so we can keep in touch with all the moms and meet all the new add ons!
I wanted to take a picture so bad but I couldn't out of respect to all the Amish mothers.

Enchanted April

I have been in agony trying to find this movie for the last 2 years. My grandma had owned it by VHS but they never made it into a Dvd. I couldn't rent it anywhere or watch it on Netflix because of this problem. I read the book last year and I loved the story even more. Last night I was wishing we could watch Enchanted April,  Jon just typed in "free movies" and he found Enchanted April!! Here is the Link if you would like to watch it.

Patty's Baby Party

Tomorrow Jon the baby and I are going to visit Patty who is having a Baby Party. Patty is inviting all the mothers who she delivered their babies for out to her place so we all can meet and get to know each other. She says that she wants us all to meet because we all are so alike and have a lot in common. I'm not sure if any amish families will come or not? I hope so because I have heard a lot about some of the mothers from Patty and I would like to meet them.
I have a present I'm bringing Patty for all the wonderful care she has given me. I found this old
Obstetricians book. The year on the front page says 1825, and the pictures in it are really old looking. I got it at a garage sale for 5 dollars. I hope she likes it because I don't know what else to give her as a thank you gift.
I will let you know how it went. I hope the baby does well in the car because it is a 2 hour trip to her place. I hope everyone has a blessed weekend.

Nursing Tea

Any of you moms having trouble with gassy babies? My midwife gave me some of this Nursing Tea and it helps increase moms milk and it also helps with baby's gas and indigestion. It also helps heal moms uterus back to its original size. I used it the first couple days and it helped bring my milk supply in, but I stopped for some reason. The baby has had bad gas and is having a hard time digesting, so out came the tea again. So far I can see it is helping him. I just started last night so its a little early to judge but he has been able to sleep more :) Here is the site to buy the tea if any of you moms need more milk or need help with the gas or indigestion or even colic.

Our house has been a busy one. We have had men in and out of our house for two weeks now. I haven't updated about what happened the night the baby was born. When I was in labor our bathtub leaked through the ceiling down into the living room. It was the first time we had ever used the bathtub. So Jon filled the kiddie pool up so I could use that instead.
By the time the baby was just being born we had a tremendous thunderstorm which resulted in our basement being flooded. Welcome to being first time home owners and first time parents :)
Our insurance is covering us, we just have to pay the deductible. So our living room has had plastic all over it to protect the furniture and the rest of the house from all the debris while the construction has been underway to fix the ceiling. The bathroom floor is being redone also. Luckily our bathroom needed to be remodeled so it really is a blessing in disguise. Jon bought a new toilet and vanity with a new sink and faucet. Jon has also been busy redoing our lawn and yard out front and out back. I will post pictures when he's finished.
So I will be posting pictures of the house as soon as i can. In the meantime I will be kissing and loving this dear baby!
I love his arms in this picture. He must get this from daddy :)

Meredith's Little Woolies

Yesterday I came home from running some errands and I found a yellow envelope in the mail box addressed to Zane Marius. I looked at the return address and the name was Meredith Alexander. Surprised and overjoyed, I eargerly opened up the envelope and I pulled out this sweet little "Woolie" Meredith had affectionately sewn for little Zane! It is so beautiful! She embroidered his name as you can see in the pictures. Her beautiful card was homemade also and it had the sweetest note of greetings and encouragement and told me how her mom had made her one when she was a baby and called them " Woolies"
Thank you Meredith, you are so good to us! By the way, the Safari pattern is so cute and it goes beautifully with nursery.

More Pictures

I'm so sorry it has taken so long to post. I have been wanting to but haven't felt up to it. I have made a good collection of baby photos! I hope I'm not boring anyone with so many pics, but I can't get enough of this little guy :)
His little tummy keeps him up all night and I wake up hearing him grunting so its hard for me to sleep when I hear him in pain or discomfort, I try to nap in the day, while he's sleeping. I'm trying to enjoy the advantage of having just one child right now because the next time around I won't be getting much naps in with two :) I sure admire you moms with more than one child!

Himilce gave us this cute little outfit. I don't know if you can read his little shirt, but it says  on the front " If I'm not sleeping ( on the back of the bottoms it says) " Nobody is".
Jon and I can't stop smelling him touching and watching him. Even when I'm so tired at night when its 2 in the morning and I'm not awake, he makes me smile and love him all the more.
