A year ago today ...

... we found out we were pregnant! Wow. It's amazing.
How did we go from this -

to this -

in just 12 short months?? I'm still reeling!

Our lil' Tank is doing so well! He is now 18 lbs. and in the 97th percentile for weight, and 25 inches which is the 75th percentile for height. His naps have improved greatly! Occasionally he'll still cry at the 45 minute mark but never for more than a minute or two. He's a sleepy boy and still takes four 1.5 - 2 hour naps a day, plus 11 hours at night. Two weeks ago he was sleeping up to 9 hours straight at night, but recently started waking up several times between 10 and 7. He's a very hungry baby and was obviously getting frustrated towards the end of a feeding when Mama was running low on milk. So the doctor advised us to start solids. I really wanted to exclusively breastfeed for the first 6 months mainly for convenience but also because I feel like my baby is too young to be sitting there eating food from a spoon. But typical acts-well-beyond-his-age Jack is a natural at eating and although it drives me crazy to wait until the end of dinnertime to wipe down his sticky face and hands, I think we're both starting to get the hang of this. (Pictures will be posted at some point). He's a total ladies' man, and had all the nurses wrapped around his finger at his appointment last week. Of course, who can resist that adorable smile and infectious laugh! Although he has shown zero interest whatsoever in rolling over, he did manage to fall off the couch this past weekend (Mommy's sorry Jack!!). Don't worry, he was laughing shortly afterward and appears to be completely normal! Being parents is not what Jon and I expected it would be a year ago, but we're really enjoying the learning process!
