Parenthood...

is great! Today was Jackson's original due date and I cannot even imagine him staying in my tummy this long! I'm happy our little man is already here and I don't have to go through labor again. We went to the pediatrician for his 2-week appointment today. He is now 22 inches long and weighs 8 lbs 8 oz. He's almost back up to 9 lbs which is great since he lost so much weight after birth. He's in the 39th percentile for weight, 84th percentile for height (surprise surprise!) and 42nd percentile for head circumference. Here's a little video while he is awake:

And I have to include this picture because I think it is just too cute. We went to Sean's basketball game last night and Jackson wore his Jordan beanie for the occasion.

He looks just like Sean! I totally saw the resemblance in the video. And the Jordan beanie is just perfect. Looks like you are feeling good and getting out and about already, that's awesome! We want to come see you but Coop is getting over a cough and I didn't dare bring him over with that. Soon though, when I'm sure he's over it!
