Jack - 2 months old

Jack turned 2 months old this past week on the 15th. At his check up, he weighed 11 lbs., 1 oz. and was 23 1/4 in. long. He now loves to coo and smile and kick his legs. He tries to grab, but he can't figure out that he has to open his hand, then reach, instead of the other way around. He takes in everything. He and Ryan also started back with Nancy since I am back at work. They both have had great days with her. Jack loves all the bottles he is getting and I think Nancy's goal is to fatten him up. She told me he is too skinny. Ryan will go to Nancy for the first part of next week, then to preschool. I'm excited (and a little nervous) about him going to school. I want him to love it, and I think he will after he makes some friends.

I have the above picture on my desk at school and just love it. It makes me want to kiss his little cheeks. This little guy has stolen my heart in an amazing way that I didn't know was possible. I never understood how I would love another child as much as Ryan, but now I do. I've missed being with my boys this week.


  1. Wow...I can't believe that Jack is 2 months already! He is such a cutie =) I am so happy for you guys.

  2. 2 months already...time sure does fly!

  3. Every time I see this picture of Jack I feel like I am looking at a miniature version of Ryan. Very cute.

  4. Jenny, I remember having the same feelings when I was expecting Doug. Needless to say, I found out that we as humans, we have a great capacity to love. I love my boys so very much, equally. Nice to see that it happens to others.
    Love you,

  5. Thanks for sharing your first day are in our prayers. Wish I could be there to be of some help.
    Love you
