Zeke Updates

Well...my boy is 2 1/2 weeks old now. It's hard to believe it's been that long! In fact, I've missed 15 days of school now...which is just insane! I saw my sub last night at the End Of Year art show and she assured me things are going well and how happy she is with the lessons I left her. We also found out there is a job opening in our district next year so she is going to set up an interview soon. I'm hoping this will be her big break!
Zeke is changing so much every day, it's hard to not just sit and watch him all day long! He loves tummy time and hates being on his back. He makes this squeeky sound when het gets really upset, almost like his voice is cracking. He loves footsie pjs and socks. If his feet are warm, he's a happy camper! He sleeps really well in the pack n play in mommy and daddy's room and has tried the crib a time or two in his own room. He eats and eats and eats and cracks me up when he's really hungry. He does this super fast chomping motion and starts breathing really hard. We have to remind him to calm down. Daddy has a way with him I just don't have down yet. He can just talk and Zeke is in a trance. He loves hearing Daddy sing and hum to him. He does really well in the car and sleeps in his car seat for long stints when he gets home.
Joe and I have been so blessed these past weeks. We have had so many visitor and just as many helpers. People bring us food EVERY day and I get calls asking me if I need anything on a daily basis. Mom spent 15 days with us and I don't know how we wouldve gotten through without her. she cleaned and did laundry, kept the baby while I slept, and just kept me company. Thanks Mommy!
Besides our families, I think the people most excited about our arrival are my sweet Hannah Sisters. I have spoken of them before, but I have to reitterate...
These ladies saved my life many times over. Amy and I joined their infertility support group about 2 years ago, when our husbands were at the end of their ropes with us and we had nowhere else to turn. We have shed so many tears and shared so many prayers with these ladies and God has been faithful to us all, giving all 3 of those trying to concieve babies this year. Thank you Carol, Sheila and Debbie. More than I will ever be able to put into words...you got me through. You believed when I didn't. You were strong when I was weak (yes, even Carol who cried every week.) You will hold a place in my heart for as long as I live. God brought us together and I know that what you have taught me is going to help me help others now. Thank you thank you thank you. I love you girls so much!
