Birthdays & Piney

This weekend was Michael's birthday and we celebrated my sister, Audrey's birthday as well. Here are a few pictures from the family gathering and meal Friday night.

Audrey got to see Jonah for the 1st time since he was in the hospital. She is in medical school in East TN.

We also went down to Piney Campground in LBL to visit with Bill (Grandpa) and Dee (Grandma). They were having Halloween down at the campground so all the kids were dressed up and went trick-or-treating around the campsites. That is why Grandpa and Uncle Jeff look a little different in the pics below. :)

Jonah is 3 months old!!

Jonah was 3 months old on Oct. 21st. He is changing so much each day and getting more and more animated. Here are a few things he is doing/liking  at 3 months old.

- He loves to smile and tries to talk all the time
- He loves people and will smile and coo at just about anybody
- He loves to be sitting up and looking around to see what's going on
- He loves his bouncy seat that has lights on it and he watches them very intensely
- He loves to take his bath (as long as he's not hungry) and he splashes his feet in the water
- He loves to sleep in his crib, which we are thankful for.
- He loves to be outside and looking around at everything

Jonah's statistics at 3 months old:

- He is probably about 12 lbs. now because he was 11 lbs 4 oz. at his last Dr. appointment.
- He is eating between 5-6 oz of formula every 3 hours.
- He is sleeping about 5 hours during the day in naps and sleeps about 9-10 hours at night
- He is wearing size 0-3 clothes and he has been able to wear some of the cute outfits since it's been warm

Here is our BIG boy and a look back from 2 months old.

Fun Day

We had a wonderful weekend around the house. Saturday we rearranged the living room and got it back to the way it was pre-baby. Michael didn't hunt this weekend so we had good family time all together. Sunday was our annual Fun Day at Church and it was held at the home of one of our deacons because the new Church is currently under construction. We had a fund day and Jonah did wonderful all day except he was so into watching and taking everything in that he didn't want to nap very well. He was so tired by about 6:00 that we decided to head on home and he finally crashed about 7:30 and slept all night. Bless his heart!! Here are some pictures from Fun Day.

Jonah's 2 month well-check

Jonah had his 2 month well-check yesterday and it went great!! He now weights 11 lbs 4 oz!! I couldn't believe how much he has grown. He has more than doubled in weight since he was born. His weight was in the 27th percentile. He measured 22 inches long which was in the 8th percentile but the Dr. said they could have not got him stretched out all the way. His head circumference was 38.5 cm and was in the13th percentile. He did great with the entire visit and he just loves his Dr.

He goes to Dr. Roads at Premier Medical and he such a great Dr. He is so good with the kids and you can just tell he really loves kids.

Jonah did great with his shots. He only cried for a second each time they poked him but we think it was more because the nurse had to hold his leg down, which he hates to have his legs and arms man-handled. As soon as they were done he was fine and went right back to eating his bottle.

We are so proud of our little man!!!
