So today was the big day. We went in for Jakson's 2 month check up and his first round of shots :(
I was a nervous wreck before getting the shots and kept changing my mind on if I should get them now or delay them..So many different opinions these days and it is hard to know who to believe! My doubts just started last night and only after reading what the people who are totally against them had to say. So after talking to the doctor and other people who we trust, Josh and I made the decision to get them. We feel like in the long run that is what is best for Jakson. I know that the Lord is taking care of him and has his hand over his precious little life. Last night while I was holding him and about to lay him down for bed, I just prayed over him. I know that the Lord is protecting my little boy. We only got 2 shots and we will get the other 2 the next time we go to the doctor. We got the 2 that the doctor felt was most important for him to have at this point.
As soon as I looked at the needles I started tearing up and got all flustered. I couldn't even watch him get them, I just held his little hand and kissed his sweet little red face! As soon as they were done I picked him up and he immediately started to calm down...that is one of my favorite parts about being a mommy. He knows me and loves me, and I just love that feeling. I nursed him as soon as the nurse left the room and he seemed to be just fine. He is still sleeping so hopefully he will be back to his normal little self as soon as he wakes up.
His 2 month(10 week) stats are:
weight- 10 lbs 6 oz- 25 percentile
height- 22 1/4"- 25 percentile
head- 15 3/4- 50 percentile
So we basically concluded that Jakson is our short chunker with a big head, hahah. just kidding!!
The doctor said Jakson looks great and seems to be in perfect health :) I was happy that he told me to take Jakson off of Zantac. He said that since he doesn't seem to be in any pain spitting up then there is no need for him to be on meds for it. He usually smiles when he spits up, haha. I was very happy to take him off of the Zantac and I wasn't really giving it to him anyways :) He said that he should grow out of it when he starts walking and eating solid food!
Well, he is starting to wake up now so I am going to go!

As some of you may know, me and my sisters and our mom are training for a half marathon in April. So as part of our training we all ran a 5K in Marietta this weekend. Josh was out of town quail hunting so Jakson and I stayed at Mimi and Pop's house. The night before the race Jakson decided to be a night owl and I got a total of 4 hours of sleep. But it is so worth it when I get to stay up with him and just stare at that sweet smile all night.
We had a little too much fun on the run and we brought a camera with us, haha. My sister's neighbor Lori also joined us on the run. Our cousin Michael started out with us but ended up leaving us in the dust, haha. My dad watched Jakson and they cheered us on :) I could of pushed Jakson in the run but it was really cold and I didn't want him getting sick. Here are the pictures from the race :)
Isn't Michael a little Justin Beiber look-a-like!
Wooohoooo on the run!
Ok, so maybe we all do a little too many thumbs up, haha.
After the race

I can't believe you are 2 months old today! Time is really starting to fly by way too fast. I feel like you get bigger with every passing day. You are such a sweet baby boy and your mommy and daddy just can't love on you enough. I thank the Lord everyday for my baby boy.
You are 2 months and here is what you are up to...
-You are totally starting to get a little personality. On Christmas Eve morning, daddy and I were laying in bed with you and you REALLY smiled for the first time. No gas, just a happy smile. Oh my goodness, I think your daddy thought I was crazy when he saw the tears running down my cheeks! Then you were just so happy that you just started cooing..oh wow, was that the best Christmas present EVER! thank you so much baby!
-You LOVE your daddy. Just this morning I had you in bed with me and as soon as you were done eating I laid you by your daddy and you just got the BIGGEST grin on your face. I have a feeling that you two are going to do some major bonding on all of those fishing trips that he is planning for you two.
-Don't get me wrong though, you love cuddling with your momma. The other day you were at your Aunt Ashley's house while mommy ran some errands. When I picked you up you got the sweetest grin on your face when you saw me. I totally teared up. I love being your mommy :)
-You went through a growth spurt a couple of weeks ago. You just feel heavier when I pick you up and you are really filling out in those adorable cheeks!!
-You are done with preemie clothes! You are in newborns and I can put you in some 0-3 month clothes but most are just too long.
-You are still in newborn diapers. I held a 1 up to you the other day and it was HUGE!!
-You love to lay around in a diaper. That makes you sooo happy!
-You also like to be layed down on a blanket while you just smile and talk.
-You are the happiest at night. It is almost like you just get this burst of energy and just giggle and smile while your mommy and daddy talk to you.
-You kind of take a pacifier. It will calm you down for a little bit but then you spit it out.
-You are loved on by everyone!!
I love you sweet baby Jakson
Love, your momma

I just love these pictures...
Jakson was sitting in his swing with just a diaper on and was as happy as could be!!
He loves being in just a diaper, and I think that it is so cute! So as long as my house is warm I let him do it! Last night we filmed him for about 10 minutes while he was just hanging out on mommy and daddy's bed in just a diaper! Such a cutie. I can't believe how much he is starting to fill out. You can weigh pets on the wii fit plus so pretended that Jakson was a pet and weighed him. It said that he was almost 8 lbs. We go to the dr in 2 weeks so we will see if it is true. He is still fitting into newborn clothes and some 0-3 month clothes. I think his head is growing faster than his body though :) haha. I had trouble getting a newborn onesie over his head yesterday, haha. poor guy...runs in the family :)
Anyways that is all for now. We are being super lazy right now. It is 11:50 and we are still sitting in bed..this is what Jakson is doing right now. I just took the picture below on my computer. I LOVE a sleeping baby. So sweet and peaceful. Especially when he smiles and laughs in his sleep, so sweet!! Guess we should get up soon :)
