Our first months have been filled with lots of first and will always be some of my most favorite memories. Here is just a very small recap of our first 4 months as parents.
At his 2 week appt Jack had gained a 1/2 pound from his birth weight and was up to 8 lbs even.
We dealt with lots of hiccups in the first couple weeks.
Jack lost his cord stump after a long 17 days, followed by his first bath at 4 weeks.
On October 27th (a nice long 3 and a half weeks) Daddy headed back to work.
On October 31st Jack dressed up for his first Halloween as a Jack-O-Lantern and made a trip to the doctor's office with Mommy and Daddy for their flu shots.
He enjoyed his first visit to his Grandparents house.
We celebrated our first holiday together, Thanksgiving.
Jack and I had our first solo lunch date at the Cracker Barrel with a friend.
We started to become just a little more confident in our role as parents. :)
At 8 weeks old Jack began sleeping in his crib. This came with a much more peaceful nights sleep for all of us.
At only 9 weeks old, and at the surprise to both Joe and I, Jack rolled from both back to belly and belly to back.
At his 2 month doctor appointment Jack weighed in at 10 pounds and 23 inches.
We celebrated Jack's first Christmas.
Jack started showing us just how much he was growing by sitting in his high chair at 11 weeks.
We celebrated our first New Years with Jack and friends.
We all began settling into a better daily schedule throughout the week, along with more regular naps.
Jack began sitting in the bumbo.
Jack began giggling a lot during play time with Mommy and Daddy.
Jack attended two of his first children's birthday parties.
