Today is the first of a bunch of little milestones that have me thinking back to last year. Jack was conceived just about a year ago today. I'd say he's grown quiet a bit since then, wouldn't you? Today is also my father's birthday. In one of those weird twists of fate, my first pregnancy was conceived on my mother's birthday and the one with Jack was conceived on my father's birthday and confirmed with a blood test on my birthday. Interesting little coincidences.
I've always thought I should use this day to celebrate my father's life. I just never got around to it. I've been too busy missing him and being pissed off about all the things he's missed over the years. He should be a 54 year old grandfather, but he's not. He'll never be more than 30. In another two years, I'm going to be older than he ever was.
( mixed feelingsCollapse )
My little spitfire is four months old. How did that happen? He had his check up this morning and he's healthy as can be. 75th percentile for weight at 16 pounds, 2 ounces, which doesn't surprise me at all given how much he likes to eat. 35th percentile for height (24.5 inches) - short like his parents. And he has a big head, lol. I forget the measurement, but the nurse said it was something like 95th percentile. Ya gotta have somewhere to store all those brains, right?
( Now for the fun part, pics!Collapse )
Ahaha. Night time sleep was TOTAL crap.
My bathroom scale says he weighs a pound more than last week, so there may have been some growing. Or maybe he just likes the rain. Or Matt promised him a pony if he kept me up all week.
Now I just need to find a balance of letting him sleep enough today so he's not overtired, but not so much he keeps me up all night again. I'm guessing we'll get back in the groove just in time for Daddy to have a really good night's sleep this weekend. :P
First things first, I need to try my luck with the coffee machine.
