Today has been so pretty! It's warm and the wind isn't blowing for a change. So I got brave and took Jake and Brady to the park at the same time by myself. (I usually take them separately for fear of Brady taking off somewhere.) We walked almost two miles and Brady was really good. He stayed right beside Jake's stroller the whole time. Jake seems to like being outside. He looks around at the trees and things as they go by. The rest of this week is supposed to be pretty like today so I'm excited that we'll be able to get out of the house for a change.

I took Jake to the doctor today to have him weighed. He was 11lbs and 15 oz. He's gaining but not as fast as he was before he got sick. They suggested I start drinking Mother's Milk tea five times a day and if that doesn't work start taking some medication to increase the milk supply. I'll try the tea for a week, but I'm still going to give him formula every day. And if the tea doesn't work then we will go all formula for the little guy. It's so crazy to me that doctor's really don't want you to formula feed babies these days.

In the last couple days Jake has started to figure out how to use his hands. He's reaching for toys and batting at them. If you put a rattle or something next to his left hand he can grasp it and hold on for awhile. He also loves to suck on his hands. So, when he's holding something it either ends up in his mouth or whacking him on the head!
