I realize that for the next however-many-years-until-I-die I will often say all those phrases that old people in my childhood said. "Where has the time gone?" "Every time I blink you're getting bigger!" "I think we should put a brick on your head so you stop growing!!" "It seemed like just yesterday..."
I can't believe my baby is already two months old.
Jackson had his two month well-baby visit and had to get shots. :( The poor little guy never even saw those giant needles coming. I, however, did and I'm pretty sure I felt his pain. He instantly burst into an angry/hurt cry with a big pouty bottom lip to boot. He weighs a whopping 15 pounds (95th percentile) and is over 24 inches (90th percentile). His pediatrician said he'll be a "tall and handsome boy" but right now his body looks a little bit like a toad. He's so cute. And so perfect.
This week was pretty crazy for the two of us. We babysat cousin Kaitlynne (15 months) while my sister-in-law (aunt Farren) visited a friend in Florida. I guess I did most of the babysitting, but Jackson helped by sleeping just a little bit longer, being just a little more patient when he was hungry and tolerating curious pokes. It was so much fun, but I am exhausted. We went on walks, we danced to the radio, we ate yogurt with our hands, we crawled up the stairs, we crawled down the stairs, we took naps, we laughed, we cried. I feel like I changed seven-million diapers. There were so many moments that I wanted to capture completely and knew I wouldn't be able to by just taking a picture or writing it down. It was wonderful. Did I mention that I'm exhausted?
I look forward to watching Jackson explore his world like Kaitlynne does now. But I can't believe he's already two months old...
