Markus stayed home from work for the first week and I must say, he is just amazing. He kept everything in order, did lots of dishes, kept up the house and spent lots of special time with Analise, all the while reminding me how he appreciates all that I do as well. My heart melted with pride and joy quite a few times this week just observing him be a fantastic husband and father.
One thing in particular absolutely melted my heart one morning this week. Markus had been getting up with Analise so I could sleep in a bit with Jameson. While I was 'sleeping', I was able to hear them playing in the living room. Hearing she and Markus play and talk in the mornings is precious to me. All of a sudden, I hear Analise start singing 'Jesus Loves Me' at the top of her lungs. Of course the words are jumbled around, but it is very clear that she is singing that song. Made me tear up.
Our new little man is quite different than Analise was when she was a newborn. He is rather mellow and content. He sleeps quite a bit and when he is awake he is alert and observant.
We went on our first walk when he was just four days old. He likes to be moving.
Here are some pictures of our girl doing one of her favorite things...walking in Dad's shoes.
Stay tuned for more gratuitous pictures of Analise being Analise and Jameson laying on his back not moving :-)
