First Boyfriend Arrives/Top 10 Signs You Are A New Mom....

The year of the babies continues with Jacob Michael Dumas--born yesterday at 7:30 a.m. 6 lbs, 13 oz to proud parents Michelle & Paul Dumas. Jacob is ADORABLE and can definately date Addy or Lilly when Dad says it's okay to date, so that is looking like it will be around 2028. Welcome to the World Jacob!

As for a Lilly & Addy update, we had their 4 week check-up and everyone is healthy and gaining weight. Lilly, who was born 4 lbs. 15 is now 7 lbs 2 oz and Addy, who was born 4 lbs. 4 oz is now 6 lbs 8 oz. The doctor was very pleased with their progress!

Okay, so I've had David Letterman on my mind recently as he's been all over the Indiana & Ball State news recently since BSU named a building after I thought I'd put together my own top ten list...

Top 10 Signs You Are A New Mom

10. Five o'clock rolls around and you realize you haven't had anything to eat all day.

9. You leave the house without realizing that you have baby throw-up or even baby poop on your clothes.

8. When buying things for yourself you translate the cost into how many diapers or formula that money could buy.

7. You take an average of 10 pictures a day and your convinced people want to see that many pictures of your sleeping babies.

6. You'll occasionally call a friend in the middle of the day, knowing they are at work, so you can hear their voice-mail and talk to a grown-up.

5. You've never been more excited about season premiere month (and TiVo for that matter).

4a. You will be amazed at how excited you get about a burp after a big bottle or a B.M. (4b. You use the acronym BM for bowel movement).

3. You forget how you filled your days before your babies were born.

2. A walk around the neighborhood, a trip to the doctor, a lap around Target--all milestones.

1. You carry around a brag book of pictures, not only because you have beautiful babies, but in case someone asks you when you are due.

Jacob is adorable and I love the name:) I also enjoy that Jacob is wearing clothes in his picture and is not naked or covered in sports memorabilia. Perhaps we can see some clothed pictures of Addy & Lilly???? Your top ten list is really cute:) I cannot imagine you walking anywhere with poop on your clothes:( Or god forbid your shoes!!!!! Try and take care of that;)

As Jacob's mother I must correct you in saying he was 6lbs, 13 oz and was 20 1/2 inches long. We shouldn't make him smaller than he was-can't give him a complex at 3 days old! :) Thank you for posting a picture of him...
and Catherine thank you for your comments. I am sure though that by Sunday he will be decked out in royal blue polyester. Go Colts! :)
