I love being a mother. I used to love being an aunt because I could always give the crying baby back to it's mom. I thought that being a mom in that instant would not be fun since, when around family, everyone holds the baby until the baby is screaming. But I find now that I LOVE it when someone else is holding my baby and the baby gets fussy, because I am the mother and JD feels comfort from me and calms down when I have him. It is amazing the connection that mothers have with their babies. Now I know why I am so close with my mom. Jeremy's favorite scripture that he has on his missionary plaque is Alma 56:47-48

"47 Now they never had fought, yet they did not fear death; and they did think more upon the liberty of their fathers than they did upon their lives; yea, they had been taught by their mothers, that if they did not doubt, God would deliver them.

48 And they rehearsed unto me the words of their mothers, saying: We do not doubt our mothers knew it."

I just hope that I can teach JD all that he needs to know amd all that my parents taught me.

2 weeks Pictures

I figured out how to scan pictures all by myself. JD can lift his head when on his tummy. He now smiles and it is so cute. I love playing with him and seeing his big smile. He also is starting to get some really cute rolls!!! I am definitely not starving him!

6 weeks old

I love it when he smiles!!!! So "tute".

He is Captain Adorable!!!

I misplaced my camera for a week, so I am trying to take lots of pictures to make up for it. If Jeremy will help me, I want to scan in his two week old pictures. JD is a great nurser now and I am glad we stuck it through to make it work. He's my little milk monkey! Although sometimes he is a milk monster!!!
