We went to the Dr. yesterday...you got three shots and an oral vaccine...poor baby, but you did great. No fever, a little bit of crankiness and some big nappin' and you were back to your smiley sweet self.
Weight: 22lb. 5oz.
Length: 27 1/2 inches
Head Circumference: 44.8cm
As you can see from the above measurements you are huge! You are the weight of an average 14 month old and length of an average 8 month old! HUGE! You are heavier and longer than your brother was at this age but if your growth patterns resemble his you will slow way down in your weight gain..you already have. You will soon be sitting and then scooting and crawling and everything will work itself out. I love you big...you are strong and manly already!
I know you are reading this and thinking...oh, I was a perfect baby..other than the whole not sleeping through the night thing. Well, you cry, you love to be held and whenever I try to accomplish anything around the house you don't like it and fuss. You poop like crazy...big amounts and forcefully...you always end up covering yourself and sometimes the couch and me too! You are a good baby though...you are just a baby...doing baby things. You are learning to put your self to sleep quite nicely. Some nights (like last night) you fight sleep so much and then other nights I put you down in your crib awake but sleepy and you put yourself right to sleep. I think you are getting it.
You are a joy my Jackson Ray. You have the sweetest smile and pick on your brothers emotions so quickly...crying when he does. I can tell that your understanding is beyond your 4 months of life...I think you have your fathers gift of discernment...I see it in you even now. You are an amazing little guy. I am in awe of the little person that you are and who the Lord is creating you to be!
