Jilian Is 2-Months Old!

I know, I'm two (now 3!) days late, but better late than never, right?

On Friday, March 20, 2009, our little Jilian Cate turned 2 months old!

Her 2-month stats are as follows:

Weight: 10 lbs.
Length: 22-3/4 in.


We have been given a petite thing! Actually, she is in the 25th percentile for weight, and the 65th for length, so talk about long & lean, huh? Maybe she will be the flyer when she becomes a cheerleader instead of the base like her muscular mother always had to be!

Even though her doctor told me that comparing a girl and a boy is like comparing apples to oranges because they are on two different growth charts, I just can't help it...
At 2 months, Jaydon was in the 65th percentile for both weight and length. At 2 months, Jacoby was in the 50th percentile for length, and 75th for weight. She is 2+ pounds less than both of her brothers, and almost the same length as they were. Basically, we are going to have one average to above average child, one short and stalky one, and one tall and skinny one. Too funny!
They are all healthy, and that's all that matters.

Jilian has rolled over a few times now. I have yet to see it - great mother that I am! I just come into a room after being gone all of 2 minutes and she's on her back. I need to turn the video camera on and just let it roll and then maybe I'll catch her in action!

She is still quite the snuggle bug and loves to be warm. She will go to sleep anywhere...which is a TRUE blessing!

She has been smiling at us more often. She loves to stare at her daddy. (Maybe because she has to stare at her mother's un-made-up face all day long.)

She makes a few noises here and there.
Her cry is changing, and we can now tell when she is hungry vs. tired vs. colicky. This is nice!

Her eyes are still blue - although yesterday, they looked a bit green when we were outside. Today, they are blue again. We haven't figured that one out yet, so we'll just let nature take its course.

These first two months have been quite joyful, and we can't wait to see what she does in the next few! (Although if she stayed like she was and never grew up, I would be just fine with that.)

Happy Belated 2-Month Birthday, Jili!



Jilian on March 20, 2009Don't you just love the hair bow and matching panties?




=============================================


Jaydon was on Spring Break this past week. It was nice having him home - REALLY, it was! He got to spend a couple of days with his great-grandparents - Papa Doyle and Grandma Rogers - which he loved. He planted tomoatoes and did some garden stuff at their house. Then he went to Market Street a couple of times with them. I'm glad he can do things with them and they can still enjoy him.

I started this blog on Sunday, and it's now Monday.
Tomorrow, Jacoby gets tubes put in his ears. Jeremy and I decided it was time - 5 ear infections from the time he was 4 months old, until now, (he is 14 months old) is plenty! The poor baby fusses and whines like you wouldn't believe. Part of that is teething, (he's getting 3 more molars all at once!) but part of it has to be his ears. Hopefully, this is the cure! I just can't imagine the pain he must feel 24/7.
Jaydon also had tubes, but not until he was 2½. We decided to get Jacoby's done earlier because we have been doing research and too many ear infections can lead to partial/full deafness which in turn can hinder speech. We don't want another child with delayed speech, so we are just being proactive....and hopefully help Jacoby feel better all at once.
His surgery is at 7:30 - we have to be there at 6:30.
Please keep us in your prayers tonight and tomorrow!
I had 3 million things to blog about, but I have been trying to finish this for days, and can't seem to think of everything.
I've written enough anyway...
PS: The dress below is from "Addy's Closet". She wore it to the birthday party we went to on Saturday. "Aunt Ally" should LOVE the over-sized bow on her head. LOL. Oh - and "Aunt Andi", the ONLY reason she is wearing an UNDERSHIRT is because it was WAY windy on Saturday and we were outside for the birthday!
Will one of the West girls let me know who it belonged to? I am in LOVE with it, and I swear I can't find anything cute for Easter! The reason I think it may be handed down a time or two is because it's a 6/9 month, and it already fit her, so I'm thinking it may have been washed a time or two. (or 8!) Also, you just don't see cute things like that...ever!
I regret not waiting and putting it on her for Easter! ...and if you think that one is cute, just wait until you see the 53 others!


SO precious!


Cute Smile!



Ready to fight!

Hehehehe, that dress I do believe dates back to Sydney. RC/Ally, correct me if I'm wrong. But I think she even had her picture made in it. Too funny! "Addy's Closet", what a great name for an actual store! J5 is growing up so fast! Best of luck to J4 for the tubes, I didn't know it was already scheduled! Prayers being sent your way!

Prayers for Jacoby! I think it's awesome that you guys are being so proactive with his ear tubes. Jr. had ear tubes too and really he should've had them sooner. The poor kid had constant ear infections. He was also speech delayed (he said 5 words at age 2). But, he's all better now, as I'm sure you know. And what a beautiful baby girl...and where are the pictures of Jaydon? I never see any...
