It was the best of days...it was the worst of days. We started out perfect--Jackson woke up early and in a good mood! He played for a little bit and then took a cat nap while Mommy got dressed. I felt so bad--he was so happy getting dressed because he knew he was going to see Dr. Wardell (he loves her), but little did he know: HE WAS GETTING HIS SHOTS TODAY! Fortunately, Daddy went with us for emotional support--mostly for me, and to hold Jackson while they stuck him 4 times! The first two shots he just squirmed, but the last two, he SCREAMED!! He stuck his little lip out and looked at us like "What are you doing to me?!" But then two minutes later, he was asleep.
He is now 11 lbs 13 oz (50th%) 23.5 inches long (75th%). Dr. Wardell still insists that his complexion is great! She says he is growing perfectly--we thought he was a chunky monkey, but she said "No! He's great!"
After lots of smiles and an entertaining afternoon with Grandma Netty and Grandpa Scott (Grandpa brought him back a Pooh bear from California, and Jackson spent the day grabbing it and putting the nose and ear in his mouth--Mike Tyson style) we headed home for a relaxing evening with Daddy. Little did we know all the drama Jackson would cause once we got there! We were eating dinner, when we started to hear Jackson filling his diaper. I forgot about it after dinner and went in to check my email--and then I heard Adam yelling from the kitchen "Ramie, get in here, get in here!" I didn't know what was going on, but when I got there, I burst into laughter! Jackson had blown out his diaper (Adam did not know this at the time) and when Daddy picked him up out of his bouncher, he covered Daddy in poo!! All over his arms, his chest, all over the bouncer...it was an absolute mess! And all I could do was laugh, and all Adam could do was stand there in shock! (for the record, Jackson has never messed on Mommy in any way--he has peed, spit up, and now pooped on Daddy! Score!) Jack was not due for a bath, but after that, he was thrown in the water! We found out the other night that Jackson really likes to float in the tub with Daddy. So Adam and Jackson got in the bath and floated around for a while! It was so cute! We are lucky that he likes the water so much--he's a fish!
It was a long day, and at 8:30pm, Jackson is in bed, completely conked out. We'll see how long that lasts.....
