Someone to watch over me

He just stares at these little guys until he falls asleep.

Little Man

Jake update

We're having a pretty good week so far. Jake decided to stay awake from 3am to 5am last night, but then he slept in until 8 o'clock. He usually does really well at night and is able to soothe himself back to sleep. Still working on the morning and afternoon naps. They're not very predictable. His hair is starting to grow back! It looks like it's coming in finer and straighter than it was when he was born. Hair is still brown and eyes are still blue. He woke up with very rosy cheeks today. I'm hoping he doesn't have some sort of rash. He looks just like a gerber baby with them though!

Play Time

Zoe loves Jake's toys.

Let Sleeping Dogs Lie

I wish I could be this relaxed!

Where, oh where, has all my hair gone?

Milestones for Jake's second month of life:

  • Discovering his hands

  • Discovering his tongue

  • "Talking" to mommy and daddy-he says "ooh," "oh," and "ah" (and moo)

  • Smiles and little giggles

Two months

Jake had his two month check up at the doctor's this morning. She said he looks great! She's predicting that his eyes will be turning brown or hazel in a few months. He weighed 11 pounds and 4 ounces and was 23 5/8 inches long. He had to get three shots which the nurses managed to do all at the same time, so hopefully he only felt one sting.

Look Memaw, I can hold up my head! Love, Jake

I know he's only eight weeks old, but I swear Jake said his first word this morning. It was moo! He always smiles when I moo like a cow and today after I did it several times, he looked at me and said moo too. And then he did it two more times just to be sure I heard him. He's a complete genius.

It is so cold here in Laramie that we just stayed inside all weekend and watched movies. "The Guardian" was good, but we don't recommend "Crank." Jake had fun hanging out in his diaper with daddy. He's feeling much better now and was pretty much all smiles over the weekend.

Brady and Zoe

Brady's first swim

Smiley face

Jake gave us his first smile when he was five weeks old.


Jacob Michael Flinn was born December 14, 2006. He weighed 8 lbs. and 1 oz. and was 21 inches long. It's been quite an adjustment having a newborn in our lives but he is such a cutie! He gave us a scare last week when he had to be hospitalized for a virus. He was released from the hospital last Thursday and is doing much better at home now. He loves to sleep in his swing and play in his bouncy seat.

Mike and I got married in Dana Point, CA at a park overlooking the ocean. We both love the beach and the water so this was the perfect setting for us. Although we loved California, we moved to Wyoming in March of 2006 so Mike could begin school at Wyotech. He loves school and will graduate in March of 2007. We're hoping to move back closer to family and friends once he gets out of school.
