Jude Jude Jude

Jude's first Albacore Tuna. As many of you may know, Jesse's dad is a commercial fisherman. This is one of the fishes he brought home from Oregon, this photo was my idea. Although, I wanted Jude to be naked but he was already cranky. The reason he is so upset is due to all the practice upside downs. 

Below is Jude sitting on his own. Yeah, my baby is four months old, he is super baby.

So Jude has made friends with some electrical outlets. When we are sitting in the rocking chair he can see them, and just laughs and talks to them. I am nervous for the day that he can walk and touch them. Luckily the ones he likes the best are up high and it will be a long time before he is able to reach them. He also loves the remote controller. We had to give him his own so that he will leave the ones that actually control the tv alone. I am sure that he likes the way the little buttons feel on his gums. Then Jude is also screaming. He screams ear piercing loud and then smiles. It gives me head aches. We have started ignoring him when he does this, since I am sure he is doing it so that we all pay attention to him. Even though it is annoying, it is still a little cute. In a weird way.

Work Shumurk!

So I started back at work Tuesday. It has been good so far, just 4-5 hour shifts. Today was the hardest of all the three days so far. I had to open, which means leaving the house at 4am and my sleeping son. The morning is the best time with him, and I am glad that Jesse got to spend it with him. I called on my 10 min break and heard Jude making little noises in the background and that is what made my heart melt to be there with him. I got home today around 10:30 and it is now 11. He has been asleep this whole time, so I greatly anticipate for him to wake up. 
I have been exploring little kid shows, since my son shows interest in watching the tv it might as well be age appropriate. Anyway, I discovered this show called Yo Gabba Gabba! I love this show, not to mention Jude. I am sure you mom's have heard of it, and if you have any feedback about it good or bad let me know. Also, if you know of anything else that is good for kiddies. Kiddies, I really just used that word. Now I really feel like a mom. 
Jude has been showing an interest in EVERYTHING. Especially anything that Jesse and I are doing. He wants the remote, our cups, food, and the keyboard. I actually let him type the other day in an email I was sending to a friend, and Jude was able to make the mouse no longer work and the computer speak every letter typed. It was funny. But not really. 
Oh, and he is also teething. Or showing signs of it happening really soon. He drools like crazy, and chews on things, but is still in a good mood. He is one of the happiest little guys. When he is crying cause he is hungry I can still get him to flash a smile at me. Oh, he is waking up...I will write more later.

Maternity Pictures

Jennifer and Brandon Manuele of Manuele Photography did our maternity pictures for us, and we are in aw of how awesome they are. Jesse looks like a stud. This day was a lot of fun and we are happy to call Jennifer and Brandon our friends. We met them at the last wedding fair. There was a brief confusion about which booth was there's and we helped them figure it out. There was a connection! As corny as that sounds, it was almost as if we were destined to be friends. As set up was going on we kept passing each others booths and smiling and making very brief small talk. After the fair we talked some more and they offered to the photo sesh. Jesse and I don't get our photos done almost ever. It was a treat to be on the other side of the camera. So to end this love letter to the Manuele's, here are the pictures:
