Growing and Growing; Driving and Driving...

Last Friday little Jackson had his 2 month check-up. As a mom, I look forward to these appointments because we get to find out how much he has grown and ask the doctor any questions we might have. Along with looking forward to these appointments there is also a little dread though, because with many check-ups comes vaccinations. With this being the first appointment for Jackson to get vaccines we weren't really sure of how he would react - Boy, did he scream!!!! As soon as he felt the needle he was not a happy camper!! But, on the bright side, he is meeting all his milestones (such as laughing and cooing, yay!!) and has grown! He is now 11 lb., 12 oz. and 23 1/4 inches long, which puts him in the 70th percentile for height and 50th percentile for weight. This is up from 21 1/2 inches (50%) and 9lb., 7 oz. (50%) at his 1 month check-up. Just for the fun of comparison, at Jayden's 2 month check-up he was 22 3/4 inches long (55%) and 11 lb.s (45%). Jayden had a big jump in height between his 2 and 4 month check-ups, so I'm anxious to see if Jackson does the same. It's so neat to see how two little brothers can still be such unique individuals.

Starting on Saturday we'll be embarking on a journey towards the east coast for Dipal's cousin, Tina's, wedding. We'll be making a stop in West Virginia at my step-grandparents' house to do some visiting and split up the trip. It will be a good chance for Dipal to meet some of that side of the family he hasn't been able to meet yet, as well as Jayden and Jackson. We'll be in WV for a few days, then off to New Jersey for wedding events, possibly squeezing in a trip to NYC to sight-see, and more importantly see my friend, Katherine :), and then back to STL. The trip will have it's tough times I'm sure, considering we have 2 young kiddos, but I'm looking forward to 10 days of no cooking, no cleaning, fancy schmancy outfits and being with some of our super fun family! Watch out, you never know when I might bust my Indian moves! :) Wahoo!!

Dancing at Manish and Anita's wedding... Good times! :)
