Daddy's Boy?

Joe has been home with me all week. Luckily my mom will be here for two weeks starting Monday, because I'm definitely not ready to be the mother of 2 without any help yet. Anyway, Joe has been GREAT! He's done all the things I didn't think he was capable of doing without being asked...he's kept up on the dishes, made breakfast, cleaned up toys, changed lots of diapers, etc. Parker has always been a mama's boy, but after this week I'm pretty sure that will have changed. Joe's taken him on lots of fun outings while I've stayed home with the easiest newborn ever! Joe and I remember being on pins and needles anytime Parker was awake as a baby. Avery, on the other hand, is perfectly content most of the time (so far....). Right now Avery is doing this: While Parker and daddy are doing this:
And I am totally content sitting watching all of them!

Cute post! I am so glad to hear that Avery is happy and easy going baby. She is such a cutie! When I look at pictures of her, it makes me want to have more babies. :)

Sounds like heaven to me. When can I come over? I seriously want to come and squeeze her and smell her neck! Newborn babies are my absolute fav.

I am so happy for you that she is being so good. That is the best thing ever!! I am so glad that Joe is helping out, we do tend to wonder if they are capable of being a stay at home dad.

I'm surprised Parked didn't put on his "cheesy" camera smile for that picture of him in the hot tub. You should've written about him screaming when he thought Joe was going out there by himself.

I was SO EXCITED to read your posts today! I keep looking at the pictures over and over--she truly is a beautiful angel baby--I told you #2 is a piece of cake! Thanks for the details--I was dying to know and so happy to hear that it all went smoothly! I can't wait to see you, to hold Avery and to visit--but don't you worry, you won't see me for a few weeks yet! Love you!

Zac is a total daddy's boy, too! Matt comes home and they play and have fun or go to the park, and I guess being at home with me all day just isn't as fun! (Especially since I've been pregnant and restricted). Oh well, at least it gives me a break! :)

Yeah more pics!!! She is adorable! I felt the same way with Sophie. And Emma really did start to love her daddy in a whole new way! I am so glad that Avery has been so easy! That makes it so much better. We were a nervous wreck with Emma and it made having Sophie so much more enjoyable. I read your delivery too...it sounded way better than when you had Parker...I remember feeling so bad for you when you had him! I want to come see her (ok and you!) so bad...I am just getting over a cold and hoping I can drop in this week some day...I will talk to you soon!
