Jacob's 2-week stats and a photo dump

Jacob is officially a little giant. He went in for his 2-week checkup today and is in the 99th percentile for everything. He weighed 11 pounds 7 ounces (almost a full pound more than his birth weight) and grew half an inch (23 inches now). I don't pay much attention to the head circumference numbers (his is 38.2 cm right now), but it's also in the 99th percentile. For comparison, Hannah was 8 pounds, 9 ounces and 21 inches long at her 2-week checkup. She was 11 pounds, 7 ounces and 23 and 3/4 inches long at her 2-month appointment...How on earth did I create such an enormous human being???

Since I have been lazy/busy trying to adjust to life with two kids and not posting pics, I'm going to catch up in one fell swoop.

I took these first two pics on the day he was born. Have I mentioned how much I loved being at home for this whole experience? So nice to just lay in my own bed all day where there's plenty of room for the whole family to snuggle.



This might have been day 2...

This was definitely day 2. Jeanne and Liam brought us over some yummy soup and muffins and Jeanne snapped a few pics that she shared with me.

Aunt Laura was also here on day 2, and she took and shared the next four photos.

Hannah is loving having and holding her baby brother, though she usually doesn't hold him for too long because he's always really hot and sweaty which makes her hot and sweaty, and she's not a fan of that.

This has been a very long, exhausting, and stressful day so I'm going to wrap this up now in spite of it being a pretty boring post. Hope you understand!
