8 weeks

Jackson is turning 8 weeks old tomorrow! I can NOT believe that he has been in our family that long...I feel like it was just yesterday that we brought him home from the hospital...on the other hand, though, I can't even remember what life was like without him! As hard as it is for me to believe that he's only been here for 8 weeks it's even harder for me to believe that just a few months ago he wasn't here! I don't even know what I did with all my freetime- I musta been pretty bored! :)

You're 8 weeks old, my sweet little man and I've loved every minute that you've been here with me! I thank God every day for you, because "you have put more joy in my heart" (Ps.4:
Here are some of the fun little tidbits about you:
According to our home scale, you weigh 10 lbs! I'm so proud of you! You are growing so fast and getting so big!
You wear almost all 0-3 month clothes, now, you can still fit into a few of your newborn things, but you're mostly a big boy!
You smile and coo whenever I look at you and you've even smiled for your big sister a few times!
You have the happiest little disposition- you barely ever cry unless there's a problem!
You pretty consistently sleep until 3:30 or 4 in the morning and last night you didn't even eat- you just had your diaper changed and went right back to bed!
You love to snuggle with me and Daddy when you get up in the mornings and sometimes you even let us go back to sleep while you hang out in our bed!
You love your baby swing and were very sad when it ran out of batteries last night!
You put yourself to sleep and calm yourself down!
You love to suck on your hands and fingers...they're always finding their way into your mouth, even when I swaddle you up your hands always find their way out!
I love you, buddy, and can't wait to see how you'll change in the next 8 weeks!
