First, happy 2 months to our sweet baby boy! I have been amazed at how quickly time has flown by. He is getting so big already and we love watching him change each day!

Yesterday, we went to see Dr. Catherine for our 2 month check up and shots. I was so nervous about this and had completely worked myself up. I cried the second the nurse said the words "Do you want to stay in here?" Who would have ever thought I would react this way on our first shot visit? So I decided to stay in there and watch Mark be brave and hold him as Tracy the nurse began the shots. We definitely heard a scream we have never heard before, but the second Mark picked him up Jacks was fine. I was still heartbroken. Today, Jacks is doing much better and smiling again. We have been taking Tylenol every four hours to keep his fever down and help with the soreness. His poor legs did get the lumps in them and were a little swollen. I am so glad that is behind us until we go back at 4 months! Now onto the good part...

Our little man is getting BIG!!!!! Sunday night we were guessing he would be about 9 lbs. Boy were we off!! He is a whopping 10 lbs 6 oz now! HOLY COW! We were so surprised but very proud of his continued healthy growth. He is now 21 inches long. According to the percentiles, his head and height were in the 10th percentile and his weight was in the 25th. Dr. Catherine said he will catch up quicker than we think so not to worry! Overall, he had a GREAT visit and according to our doctor "He is just PERFECT" and we couldn't agree more!

No visit to the doctor would be complete without a treat for Jacks. After all, he was very well behaved. =) We went to Target right after to buy a small happy. We decided on a Fisher Price projector and music player because Jacks loves lights. It has been a hit and I would recommend it to anyone with a little one. HE LOVES IT!!!!!

Hope to post his 2 month pics soon! ~
