One month old

Well today is Jake's 1 month b-day! He weighs about 8 lbs 8 ounces now. I can't believe some babies are born that big. Since he can't properly celebrate his one month b-day Erich and I and some friends took it upon ourselves to eat junk food and play games in his honor.

As for a Jake update--it was a pretty big week. He spoiled me and slept his first 7 hour stretch. The continuous sleep felt amazing. Although it was much appreciated it was not long lasting. The next night he was up like 3 or 4 times!
It was also a big week for Erich. He has been getting in lots of duck hunting before his surgery. He also got his new shotgun which has become his new prized possession. In between hunts we've been busy cutting more wood, sheetrocking the garage, and mud & taping the basement. So working hard and playing hard at the Gleckler house!



(Erich talked big about how he'd never change dirty diapers but here is evidence that he does! He is an AWESOME dad who spoils Jake and I with all of his help!)

(Here's one of Jake's smiles which isn't a true smile but melts mom's heart nonetheless)

(Jake on his one month b-day. As you can tell he's really starting to lengthen out--I think he'll be out of his 0-3 month clothes before too much longer)



(We've been really missing these days....2 weeks ago we were on the beach lazing away in the sun...now we're all bundled up and busy keeping a fire going).



(Erich scoping out his new gun! A picture just can't quite capture how excited he was about this new little hunting toy)

Love the beach pic! Can't believe your little guy is already a month old. I also really like seeing your house in the background--props on the decorating.

What a cute boY! He is skinny, I think Grace weighed that at 2 weeks. I am glad Erich didn't stick to his no changing dirty diapers thought. There is no way to avoid them! I'm glad he is such a good help. I hope that Jake gets more in routine with sleeping long stretches at night. We might have to get Jake and Grace together since they are so close in age:-) I love the pictures, and I am with RaeAnn on all the cute decorating in your house.

No way! Your baby can't be 1 month old yet. I could have sworn you had him like last week or something! Time really flies once you have kids, doesn't it? He has such an adorable little face!

Glad to hear that Erich is such a great help, hopefully it runs in the family! If Ben were in charge of all things baby we would currently have a crib, changing table, and bike trailer, instead of our piles of baby gear. Congrats on making it to the first big milestone with Jacob! Tell Erich good luck with all the knee business and that we're impressed with all his ducks, (but still glad that it's not us eating them)

Hey, sorry I have been out of the blogging loop! We have been in Idaho for the last 2 weeks hunting and playing. We just got back and settled. Jake is soooooo dang cute! You guys did good! I'm glad Erich still has gotten to go hunting. You have such a cute little family.
