When Jamieson is asleep and starting to wake up, he sometimes makes little sleepy-annoyed noises that sounds like “Murph, murph, murph.” It’s super cute.  Other times he can make a noise that sounds disturbingly like a grackle. That is slightly less cute.

I think that, tentatively, the Prevacid that Jamie is taking is helping (thank you, Debbie, for the advice!!!). He’s still been fussing the past few days, but it’s usually easier to calm him down and those shrill shrieks of agony seem to be fewer. When he cries now, his tone is different, more like what I imagine regular-baby crying is like. His happy periods increase in length and number each day. He smiles easily and laughs a lot. As Doc said, that’s the “real” Jamie.

Doc had some work that he had to get done this afternoon, so Jamie and I went out running errands. I think this is the first time that I have taken him out alone. It went well. He slept most of the time, and did not protest being in the sling when we were in stores.

On a non-baby-related note (because I like to think that I still have interests other than those relating to my new role as Mom), check out this monstrosity… it’s pig, pig, and more pig. I like pig, but not THIS much. Be sure to check out the whole article for step-by-step construction photos. Also, can I just say that I love the term “bacon weave”?

Behold, BACON EXPLOSION!!! Here’s what you’ll need…

2 pounds thick cut bacon
2 pounds Italian sausage
1 jar of your favorite barbeque sauce
1 jar of your favorite barbeque rub

To kick off the construction of this pork medley you’ll need to create a 5×5 bacon weave. If the strips you’re using aren’t as wide as the ones pictured, then you may need to use a few extra slices to fill out the pattern. Just make sure your weave is tight…
