I’ve mentioned before how he loves the bath. He has started to splash in the water. Not on purpose… he just gets excited and moves his whole body and the water splashes him and his eyes get real big and he smiles.
He also does this cute thing when he is tired… he gets fussy so we try to put the pacifier in his mouth. He stares at you for a few seconds and then smiles like he just wanted us to look at him. He is not a big fan of that pacifier. He likes to suck though! He’ll suck your shoulder or arm off when you’re holding him and always sucks his fist but you have to hold the pacifier in his mouth, he’ll gum at it for a few minutes then either take it or just fall asleep. Only time will tell if he wants that thing or not.
We got out our baby books to compare height/weight:
|Birth||1 Month||2 Month|
|Rachel||7lbs 3oz- 18.5″||9lbs 14oz- 21″||11lbs 13oz- 22.75″|
|Jared||7lbs 14oz- 20.5″||11lbs – 21.5″||12lbs 15oz- 22″|
|Jaidan||7lbs 4oz- 20.25||10lbs 10oz- 21″||14lbs 2oz- 23″|
Jared also had an appt this day for his yearly pacemaker check with his cardiologist. His bp was 100/70, he is using his pacemaker 68% of the time, and he has about 9 months left on the battery. They actually gave a very broad range of battery life… 1-19 months. Don’t worry- it doesnt mean that his battery will stop and sound an alarm and he has to rush to the hospital to have it changed (like I thought, haha) The pacemaker wont let his heart rate fall below 65, but the dr. said it will start making him feel sluggish because it also wont allow his heart rate to go up. I told him he’s not allowed to use that as an excuse not to do something. 😛 He is doing monthly pacemaker checks over the phone also so they are still monitoring it. So within the next year he will be having the surgery to get another pacemaker. Which he also tells me is just a small outpatient day surgery. (But still scary for me!)
Also, Jaidan goes next month to have this tested again… so can everyone please start praying!? I guess I’m not sure exactly what to pray for. Obviously I don’t want him to have it, but I know thats not for me to decide. I know everything will be okay no matter what the result so please pray!!! 🙂 Thank you.
Oh and here is a picture of Jareds baby picture. It’s a picture of a picture because I dont have any digital baby pictures of him so it’s kinda blurry… sorry.
As for me, I go back to work next week!! It’s a bittersweet feeling because obviously I will miss him when I’m away- but I love my job & the people I work with. And the great thing is only working 3 days a week.
Here’s some more pictures of the boy:
