Tuesdays with Jacob: 10 Weeks Old

August 26, 2014

When we left off last week we were still at the lake. Unfortunately we had to road trip home with Uncle Jared on Tuesday. You slept all the way to McDonalds, then we fed you, changed you, fed ourselves and hit the road again. You slept the rest of the way back to grandma and papas.

We spent our last night in Michigan making some s'mores (mommy's favorite!) and getting in as many last minute cuddles as possible.

On Wednesday we had to fly home :( You were just as good on our way back to Florida as you were on our way to Michigan, sleeping almost the whole time. You woke up just a little prior to landing needing a diaper change and a feeding. Everyone on the plane commented on how quiet you were and how they didn't even know there was a baby on the plane until we were disembarking.

You were fussy when we got home, but after an 8 hour sleep you were good to go the next morning!
Back home on  Thursday daddy went back to work and we took you to your 2 month well child check up! You now weight 14 lbs, 2 oz and are 23 3/4 long!! Such a big boy!

You had to get four shots - 
1. Pertussis/Diptheria/Tetanus
2. Polio
3. Haemophilus Influenzae
4. Pneumococcal Conjugate
Plus an oral vaccine for rotavirus

You were NOT a happy camper afterwards. There was lots and lots of screaming even after mommy held you and rocked you and got you dressed again.

You did fall asleep on the way home, and after a three hour nap you were feeling a little better. Still fussy, but no more screaming. We had to give you a little tylenol for the first time. Later that night you slept through the night for 9 hours for the first time! Guess all those shots wore you out! 

On Friday Daddy went into work later in the day so it was just me and you all night. The dogs were very naughty - they chewed up parts of my breast pump and kept barking and waking you up. It was really stressful for mommy!

But on Saturday Daddy worked a short day and came home in the afternoon. We spent our morning together napping on the couch. 

We made a quick trip to Babies R Us to replace the chewed up pump parts and then we got dinner at Red Robin thanks to a gift card from Great Grammie! You were having fun staring up at the lights on the ceiling while we got our drinks and appetizers, but they you slowly started drifting off to sleep. 

Then right when our burgers came out your eyes popped right back open. You always know when we are about to eat dinner!!

You've really discovered your hands this week. You love using one hand to grab the other, or trying to hold your own hand. 

You still love staring up at your star mobile Grandma and Mommy made. 

You are officially in size 2 diapers :( 
the last too-small size 1 diaper
