Jacob is 4 months old!!! Had is checkup last week. he's in the 50th percentile for weight and 25th percentile for length. According to the doctor he's not overweight, he's just undertall. Welcome to the short side of life baby! (more on that later though).
Since I last posted he's had a cold, gotten over a cold. Started sitting with assistance, still loves being held so he can stand, started sucking his thumb and prefers it over the pacifier, and had his best photo shoot yet. His intestines are maturing and slowing down so he's not creating as many dirty diapers, but you can almost bet that when he does finally have one, you'll need to change all his clothes. I finally had diaper change to beat all other diaper changes. After 5 or 6 diaper wipes had made no dent and pretty much every thing in sight was covered with at least a little of what my husband referred to as "concentrated evil" I had no choice but to plunk him in the sink. Neither he nor I enjoyed the experience very much and I have been a bit gun shy ever since.
Today was day 2 with no movement of the bowels... and oh, did I mention that tomorrow he starts daycare? I've packed some extra clothes, and I'll warn them of the imminent eruption.
yup, so last week I started work 3 days a week and my mom watched Jacob. This week, he'll go to daycare Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Wish me luck, I'm sure it will be harder on me than it will be on him.
