It just breaks my heart to think my family may be suffering another huge loss, again! Almost three years to the day after Katrina. I can't imagine looking around my house and having to decide what to take and leave knowing I may not have the chance to come back to any of it. I know all the "things" can be replaced, but the place where the memories are made is a tough loss as well. I am just sad. Praying for everyone to get to safety and holding my breath to see what happens. Gustav you suck.

I can honestly say about two weeks ago he started grinning at me on purpose. It was so sweet. Then this week when I thought the smiles and baby jabber was the cutest thing ever. He broke out giggling twice when we were playing. If I thought I was in love before, the sound of that much happiness made it ridiculous love! I am going to figure out how to post video's soon. Be on the look out...

Yea... we hit two months! He is 9 pounds 11 ounces (15%) and 23 inches(55%). Dr Mathew said she thought in a couple more months his weight would catch up to "normal". We are so excited at how well he is doing. Especially since he was only 5 pounds 10 ounces at four weeks. The shots were not quite as traumatic as I expected. Very sad though. Poor man has been sleeping all afternoon, but we have not had a fever or fussiness. I'll just keep an eye on him tonight and tomorrow.. I am hoping my little man will be grinning and laughing by tomorrow again. It is so sweet to watch his personality emerge. He has his daddy's grins and his momma's temper. It's so cute. Oh what a monday. Has it really been two months?

So excited, even if it was a fluke. Jackson ate for his midnight feeding, fell asleep and slept till 8 a.m. He must have had so much fun meeting up with the girls yesterday in Decatur. Then at Ben's birthday last night. He did party like a rockstar. Takes after his dad. ;) I think today we are going to visit his Godmother at work. Jackson has been missing her this week. Then off to lunch with daddy. We may even decided on a Halloween costume... Look for that big announcement to come. I know you guys can't wait to find out what he'll be.

Momma's got tendonitis. No fun! Went to the Dr. finally because the pain got so bad I started getting nervous about handling Jackson. So hopefully this will be gone in a couple of weeks.
We are going through a growth spurt the last couple of days. Bubbie's been starving and restless. His two month check up is Monday I'm nervous about the shots but excited to see how much more he's grown... Headed to Grandpa Bobby and CC's tonight for dinner He hasn't seen him for two weeks so I think he'll be surprised how big he's gotten.
So the whole point of this blog is to keep everyone updated on Jackson's weekly happenings and so far I've sucked at it. Well lets catch up. We are finally gaining a good amount of weight between 1 and 2 pounds a week! We are still in the 5-10 % but, I have a feeling in another month we will be all caught up! Last thurs. he was 8 lbs 7 oz. I was so excited I could have cried. We have had a few days of growth spurt behavior. Just not having it, but I love it. All that means is my little man is getting bigger. B and I have already noticed a huge change in the past three weeks. He is up more, looking around. Even becoming more snuggley, if that's possible. Just tonight B was saying he can't even imagine if these changes have happened so fast what it will be like in a month or two more. I know before we blink he'll be such a big boy, and even though I'm here with him every day I feel like it's happening to quickly. It's hard for me to even keep up.
Starting now I'm going to be better at this! I promise! Off to bed with this sleeping prince. Night...
