Precious Baby :)

2 Month Check-Up Stats: 
Weight: 13lbs 9oz = 90th percentile
Length: 23in = 50th percentile 

We have one short chubby baby! Max went to the doctor's today and he is doing great! He hated the shots of course, but as soon as it was over, he was pretty content again. As much as I hate to hear him cry, I think he has such a cute one! I seriously love my baby so much I can hardly stand it! Thank goodness too, because otherwise I would have a hard time taking care of him considering how much sleep I don't get. Max tends to go to bed around 1 or 2 in the morning and sleeps until 11 or 12 in the afternoon while eating every three hours in between. Not too bad I guess, except lately he hasn't been able to sleep anywhere except for in the swing or in my arms, which means I am spending a lot of time on the couch. He eats every 2 hours throughout the day and takes about six or seven 1/2 hour naps, which makes it so hard for me to get anything done because I feel like I have to entertain him when he's awake. He'll be pretty content just sitting in the swing or bouncy seat by himself and sometimes I'll catch him smiling to himself while I'm in the kitchen making lunch or something; I just like to see him smile and learning to laugh and coo so I try and talk to him and play with him while he's awake. Max is such a strong baby!! He can hold his head up for quite some time during tummy time. He can pretty much hold his own weight on his legs too as long as we help him to balance. This impressed the doctor very much. She said most babies can't bear weight on their legs at this age. Max LOVES his hands! When he starts to wake up from his naps we'll just hear him sucking on his hands making tons of smacking noises. It's really cute, especially when a hand starts to stray from his mouth, he'll sometimes move his head to his hand rather than move his hand to his mouth. Here are some pictures from the last month: Enjoy!
He has such a goofy smile! I love it!
We got him a new jacket for winter. We bought it big so it can fit over his sweaters.

Isn't he the cutest baby in the world?!!! (I know, I'm biased.)  I should probably post more often so I don't have to put so many pictures in one post!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Bryan, Max and I were on our own for the first time for Thanksgiving this year, scary! We were originally going to go to a huge buffet here serving Thanksgiving food, but finally realized we couldn't afford it, so we decided to make our own dinner. Well, guess what? It turned out great! The only snag we came across was that it took a whole lot longer than expected so we didn't have dinner around the traditional late afternoon time, but later in the evening. That's ok though because I'm, proud of us anyway. We managed to roast a 10lb turkey, had stuffing (for Bryan), corn (for me), mashed potatoes and gravy, and pumpkin pie: delicious!! I hope all of you had a fantastic Thanksgiving and were able to eat everything you wanted!!
Our underdone turkey. We eventually had to cut off the breast meat and put the rest in the oven to finish cooking since the wings, drumsticks and thighs apparently take a lot longer to cook.
See Max hanging out behind me? There are so many things I'm thankful for, namely our precious little baby boy. He is everything I could ask for and so much more. I am so grateful for my wonderful husband whom even though is at school all day long, is willing to help me whenever I need him and loves to hang out with his son. I have a wonderful family :). There's so much more that I could mention, but that's the jist of it. A post about Max (who is 2 months old today!) coming soon.

Spokane Temple Visit

We drove over to see the Spokane Temple the other day. It was a short trip though because it was freezing cold!! It was much smaller than the Redlands Temple; about half the size if possible, but it was still nice to go see.
Max was sleeping so cozy and peaceful the whole time :)

Grandma and Papa Jones

Bryan's parents came to spend some time getting to know their newest grandson. They helped us out a lot and provided us with many Costco goodies to keep us stocked up :). We're grateful for your visit and thanks for everything! Max loved all the extra attention!

Growth Spurt

I think Max just went through a huge growth spurt. The picture on the top is a day less than 4 weeks and the one on the bottom is 5 weeks, 2 days. He plumped up nicely!

And here's Max at 3 days old on the left and again at 5 weeks, 2 days on the right. What a major change!!
