Can you believe it? I can’t!
Our little guy has already lived on this earth for two months. It’s crazy to think that we have spent nine weeks with this little bundle of love!
Since my last update a month ago, Jack has grown quite a bit. He weighed in at 11.8 pounds at one month and at his two month visit, he is now weighing 13.9 pounds.
Jack eats about every two to three hours during the day and has started to sleep longer stretches at night, with his longest stretch being 8.5 hours. I would have put a exclamation point after that amount of time, however, Josh and I were in the emergency room that night as we both had food poisoning. So instead of gaining a lot of sleep that night, we were awake, throwing up, and enjoying the Friday night crew at the ER. But that is a different story, for another time.
Unlike Lilly, Jack is quickly growing in and out of his clothes. He fits comfortably in 3-6 months. His 0-3 month clothes are rather snug. He is a big boy! Living around such a conservative group of people makes me laugh sometimes. We will be out grocery shopping, or running errands, and the nice Amish ladies will comment on how big he is. Instead of saying “that’s a big baby” or “He’s a chubby guy” they say things like “He’s a good size.” Which nicely means, “Lady, your baby is fat.”
The only milestone to share this month is that Jack has learned how to smile and coo. I know this isn’t much of a milestone, but it sure feels like he is finally becoming his own little person.
We are so thankful for this little guy and cannot wait to see what the next month brings!
