All smiles...

These days Jack is learning about the world around him - both near and far. He is fascinated with fans, lights, and THE TV!!! It is so funny to sit and watch him watch everything around him. Now he has also realized that he has feet. He loves to play with his feet and had his big toe in his mouth yesterday...Jackie and i are impressed with the flexibility :) He has been so much fun and we are so excited everyday to watch his little personality grow. His laugh will totally melt your heart and he smiles at everyone! We took him to his first MSU football game this weekend and I will post pictures of that soon...for now here are a few over the last week or so! We hope that everyone is having a great day!!!

Getting back up to speed...

We'll admit, the blogging kinda slowed down after Jack's arrival. Okay, it stopped altogether. But we're not giving up just yet! Jack has certainly grown, and is now just over 3 months old. It is simply amazing to see him everyday, and he really is growing up so fast. Those of you that have seen him lately know that he has had no problem eating. Those of you that have not seen him lately will probably not recognize him.
We're going to update the blog with some pictures of Jack from the last few months, and we'll try to keep better track of what's going on - since that's the whole point of this blogging thing. So, without further delay, here are a few pictures to catch you up. We'll try to keep the pictures coming...

This picture is from one of Jack's first days at home. He is wearing his tie that Jackie got him (his Sunday clothes).

This was Jack's first walk around the neighborhood, with Mary Virginia and Lulu.

Baby Jack is HERE!!!

So as most of you have probably heard, sweet little Jack made his debut on May 18, 2010 at 1:18 am. He weighed 8 pounds and 1 ounce and was 22 1/2 inches long. We absolutely fell in love with him from the moment we saw him. He has been such a blessing to our entire family.

Things did not go quite as "planned" for his birthday but we think that the way that things turned out could not have been better. I was supposed to be induced on Tuesday morning but was scheduled to be at the hospital at 3:30 on Monday to get the process started for the night before the "induction". So since I thought that we would have all night at the hospital, I decided to prepare some that day by getting some last minute things together. I wasn't feeling great, but I chalked that up to "nerves" that day, so I decided to go to Renaissance to walk around and get my little addiction (Smoothie King). I should have known that something was up because I couldn't drink my smoothie after I got it and that just doesn't usually happen :) Well anyway, I came home and did things around the house for the rest of the morning, got a shower, and finished packing. Jackie got home around noon and we installed the carseat *(yes i know that we were last minute on this, but at least we got it done...haha). We then decided to go eat Mexican on the way to the hospital because I had not been able to eat all day and I can always eat Mexican. So we got to the Mexican restaurant around 2pm and were going to leave there and head to get candy :) for the hospital. BUT Jack had other plans...my water broke on the way to the hospital. He was ready to be here and we were ready for him too. We checked into our room and things went from there. I was already having contractions every 3-4 minutes and didn't even feel them YET! Jack made his debut early on Tuesday morning and our family was so sweet to all be there for his birth. He was welcomed with love for sure. I also had the best nurses that I could have asked for.

I will try to be better about the blogging and will leave you with some of Jack's finest photos :) Thanks to all of our sweet family, visitors and friends who have made us feel so special at this exciting time in our lives.

Well we got some good news at the appointment last week and it looks like sweet little Jack will be making his debut a little sooner than we thought. We are scheduled to be induced on May 18th unless he decides to visit sooner. We are so excited and I cannot believe that in less than a month we will meet this wonderful little guy.

Ok so I am sorry that I have been so sparce with the posts, but I will try to do better :) It is just crazy around here these days but I have a feeling that things are about to get a little crazier. Jackie and I are so excited and are starting to prepare more and more for his arrival. We have also finally decided on baby Bost's (known as BB to many) name and he will be Jack Garner Bost. We are extremely excited about this name because he will have such a strong family name :) Jack as many of you can probably guess is for Jackie (husband) and Jackie (mom) and Jackie's (husband) grandfather. Garner is Granny's maiden name. We feel that he will have great roots and we could not be more thrilled with that idea. I will try to be better at posting and for sure will let you know when/if we find out any new details :)

Big Boy Jack...

The Doctor's appointment went well yesterday and our sweet little Jack is still a big boy! They told us he weighs about 5 pounds now and is measuring about 2 weeks ahead. We are getting so ready to meet him!!!

How funny are these pictures. One looks like "oh no, not more pictures" and then of course when he sticks his tongue out at you, you get the picture :) haha. Just wanted to post the latest and will try to put more soon. Hope that everyone has a happy Easter and enjoys this special time of year.

Next Doctor's visit...

As the weeks are going by faster and faster, we are starting to get more and more excited about meeting our sweet little baby boy. We go tomorrow for the 32 week ultrasound and appointment and I cannot wait to get to see him again. We are going to try to get a better face shot this time since he had his feet in his face the entire 4d. I would love to see those sweet feet again though and we will just have to see how cooperative he will be. We feel so blessed to be on this wonderful ride and it seems like just yesterday that we were telling the news. I will post a new picture if we get a good one tomorrow...hope that everyone is having a great week!
