9 Weeks


Today is Jude's 9-week birthday! To celebrate, we drove to Quakertown to see Jude's doctor for a check-up. He did great on the drive down, though mom and dad were stressed because of all the construction.

Jude is a whopping 25 inches long now! We think he's going to be one tall guy. He weighs 13 pounds, 4 ounces, and his head is 15.5 inches in circumference. Over the past few weeks, Jude has really started interacting with Josh and me (and whoever else happens to be around). He's also super alert... especially in the mornings. He can roll onto his side by himself, and he smiles and laughs often. Right now he's having some tummy play time with his dad. (=

Backtracking a little... Earlier this month, Josh and I took Jude on a trip to Illinois. It was a LONG trip, but Jude did really well, all things considered. We had a great time visiting Josh's parents, and we even got to see some of his old friends while we were out there. Jude got to meet his Grandpa, Aunt Erin, Uncle Grant, and Aunt Makenzie for the first time. He also got to meet his Great Aunt Lois and Great Uncle Don as well as his cousins Andy and Amy.

On Jude's 2-month birthday, we celebrated by reading the new Harry Potter book. Jude really enjoyed it (and so did mom!). We've gone on a fair number of walks over the past few weeks (Jude in his Ergo baby carrier), and we've done a lot of lying around. It's been really great. I'm not looking forward to going back to work.
