we enjoyed christmas day with Pa-pa Scruggs, who came to visit us from colorado. the day was spent lounging, eating, emailing, opening presents, and of course, listening to our toddler whine and our new born crying... oh the joys! :)
we are looking forward to the next couple days of rest, and not having to go to work. the time will fly, i am sure!
getting ready for our final round of visitors next week! :)

jacob is just getting over a stomach virus- which started with a day of throw up, followed by 6 days of yucky diapers- so glad to be done with that! here he is in his first bubble bath (don't know what took us so long to do a bubble bath, but he hated it) and with pappy and his new hat...
kate continues to be a social butterfly by refusing to nap. she just wants to be held all the time and is the happiest baby if she gets her way! she's had only 3 or 4 naps in the last 2 weeks that have been longer than 45 minutes. she just doesn't want to stay asleep. we've tried lots of "sleep props" but what really seemed to work for her 3 hour nap yesterday was sleeping on her belly...the only position in which she can't startle herself awake. she still sleeps great at night, and actually went 8 hours between feedings a couple nights ago....maybe again someday soon??!
she is filling out in her face and thighs, like a chubby baby, and continues to bless us with her adorable smile.
this weekend we are enjoying time with my mom and step-dad, who are visiting us briefly on their cross-country drive from pittsburgh, pa to colorado springs, co.

so when you have a tiny baby who fits inside a stocking this is what you do...

it was a busy day in the pié house- lots of cooking, eating, and kids running around. we enjoyed our thanksgiving day with grandma and grandpa mclane and aunt michal, uncle scott, and cousins ryan and lindsey. we are very thankful for family, especially our recent addition. :)
sorry for the blurry picture, but this was the best one of 'the cousins'

jacob made me laugh this week- we were watching the music group 'il divo' perform on Good Morning America. they were singing "amazing grace", a song from their recently released album. jacob was CAPTIVATED! when he caught me filming him- the first word that comes out of his mouth, "puppy!" think maybe he was embarrassed?? :) i think he liked the bagpipes.

walking is supposed to be good to get the baby engaged and dropped- so we went hiking in the woods behind the house. here's some video from jesse's part of the hike (after mommy went inside to get dinner started):
jacob and mommy watching his favorite show- Bob the Builder:
on my days off, jacob and i get to hang out and play with isabel, his buddy. here's a cute picture i got of them on the dinosaur car together:
and saturday the 18th, "sweetest day", was a sweet day for me- i got a mother's necklace and roses from jesse. what is sweetest day anyways? i am not sure- but i like it! :)
and here's the soon-to-be big brother, just up from his sunday afternoon nap:

or maybe it was because jesse was actually home to witness my cleaning frenzy on saturday (i usually do the major cleaning while he is at work). he stopped me in the middle of my mopping and accused me of "nesting". (i wasn't even aware that HE was aware of the term) i guess i have been a little more obsessive about taking care of all the little things that need done before the baby comes, which mostly involves cleaning. washing her tiny clothes, washing all the baby gear that jacob blessed with his spit-up days, cleaning the bathrooms- really well, cleaning out closets that have nothing to do with the baby (laundry room storage closet), and next on the list- cleaning out the freezer.
i have had a burst of energy after our recent illnesses in the family. jacob was sick with the big "D" for 8 days, and in the middle of that i got a bug (dr was sure it was just morning sickness) where i had absolutely no appetite for over a week, felt nauseous all day long, had absolutely no energy and i came very close to being dehydrated. but now we are all better and are all ready and anxious for the arrival of baby pié.
i am sorry, family, that there are no new pictures to post. i keep thinking how i need to get one last picture of my swollen belly since none of my family gets to see the bump in person. maybe this week....
so instead of pictures, i will share this great new blog that my friend at work just shared with me today:
this is going to quickly become one of my best friends, and i am looking forward to visiting this site frequently. :) thank you for sharing, jessie baker!
