He usually takes two 1-2 hour naps throughout the day with an occasional cat nap here and there. He loves to be snuggled and gets plenty of it. He loves a binky and blanket to put him to sleep and is a champion at night. His hair is a must and always sticking up in the back. He is obsessed with Camden and laughs his hardest for him. He has mastered rolling all over the place and is working on putting his own binky in his mouth(he often settles for his thumb). We are so lucky to have him in our family!

Tonight as I sat in the rocking chair trying to get you and your brother to fall asleep, I had "one of those moments"! Camden was in bed whispering prayers over and over in an attempt to not fall asleep. I had my head back against the chair resting with my eyes closed and you in my arms. You had just fallen asleep when all of a sudden you decided something was funny. You let out the sweetest laugh all while keeping your eyes closed. Something really got you going because it continued for a while. Even Camden said, "Jace Man funny".
You have brought so much JOY into our home. I am overwhelmed with the amount of LOVE I have for you. Thank you for being such a GOOD and HAPPY baby, you truly make being a mom easy!
I love you Jacers!

We have seen such a difference in Camden's sleeping patterns since having his tonsils and adenoids out. He asks to lay down for a nap and for the most part, wakes up happy. And the biggest thing I've noticed is he isn't falling asleep everytime he sits down for more than a couple minutes. A Christmas miracle I tell ya!
Jace is starting to take better naps during the day. He has always been so chill and never needed much attention. Lately he has become a wee bit fussier(really not bad) and so I felt like he needed a better nap. For the past two days he has done just that. He has taken a two hour naps two days in a row. WOW.
Dan and I both took our last pill for the pneumonia yesterday, it feels good to be done. Those pills made my tummy rumble and my face fat. We have both noticed a huge difference in how we feel, less congestion and the cough is almost non-existent. Yeah for a kind and wise doctor.
About two months before I delivered Jace my ears filled with fluid and I couldn't hear. I felt like I was living with my head in a bubble of water. It drove me nuts. To make a long story short I couldn't find an ENT that would treat me, or even see me, because I was pregnant(don't get me started). So after delivering Jace and demanding a referral from my PCP I finally got seen by an ENT. Evidently I had fluid overload from my pregnancy(no duh), and because the fluid never drained I received a fungal and staph infection. I was treated, and went on my way.
Until a couple weeks ago when the same feeling came back, and I was living in a bubble again. Only this time it was coupled with severe vertigo. So to make another long story short, on Monday I went to the ENT and had a hole cut in both eardrums to drain the fluid. My eardrums feel a little numb and ache from time to time, but I can hear things I never knew made noise. Very weird. The vertigo still comes and goes but I'm hopeful that will resolve once my eardrums have healed.
I love this corner we've turned, things look brighter over on this side!
