2 months!

Jax is 2 months old today! Time has flown by, it's nuts. We had a doctor's appointment this morning at 8am. Much too early! 8am by itself isn't too early, but the time that I must set my alarm for in order to be ready by 8am... that's what is too early. But, I was very happy because Jax didn't even wake up to my alarm and I ended up having to wake him up to feed him before we left. He slept the whole time I was getting ready. It was awesome. We got to the doctor on time and daddy met us there. Here's Jax's 2-months stats...

Height- 22.8 inches (50th percentile)
Weight- 12.9 lbs (75th percentile)
Head circumference- 15.9 inches (45th percentile)

He's a chunker and I love it! But overall, he's pretty average except for one thing... he has the head/neck control of a 4 month old!!! Dr. Olsen put Jax on his tummy and he used his hands to push his head up and look around. Dr. Olsen was so surprised. She said that they expect that from babies who are 4 months old, not TWO months! I was so proud. Not to mention that it also made me feel like a good mommy because we do tummy time and play time and I try to help him strengthen his neck muscles. Yay for me!

Jax also had to get his first immunizations today. Boo. I know they are necessary, but I really hate seeing him hurt. The funny thing is, he actually handled it better than I did! He wailed right when she poked him, but then Ryan picked him up and he calmed right down. I was the one who had trouble stopping crying. It just made me so sad. He was supposed to get one oral and 3 shots for a total of 8 vaccines today. However, I just really felt like that was too much at one time, so we did the oral and one shot today and we will go back in a month for the other 2 shots. Besides that, our next appointment is at 4 months!

Here's the handsome boy with a big ol' I'm-2-months-old grin!
