What a busy day! We were up at the crack of 9:00am to feed Jakob and load up the car as we had his pediatrician appointment for his 2 month vaccinations (even though it’s a bit early).
I’m proud to say he handled the shots like a trouper! A quick cry, almost as if to say “what the hell?” and by the time I had him re-dressed he was laughing again. I’m so proud of my big boy! Besides the shots he was found perfectly healthy, he grew 3 inches longer since birth (up to 23.5″) and gained some more weight to a nice, healthy 11 lbs.
After that appointment we spent the day doing something we had been meaning to do for the last year! We had received some duplicate items from our wedding registry, and a few items that weren’t exactly to our taste. We FINALLY went through everything and brought the items back to the store to exchange them for items we will use. It was so much fun! It was a bit awkward when Jakob got hungry, but the department store had an extra-large changing room with a bench so I was able to feed him in privacy. Then we spent the afternoon shopping with the store credit that we’d amassed. It was great, and we got a bunch of items that we will use often. I love them all, but I’m a bit biased towards the steamer we picked up- because it will be great for blocking! 🙂
After that long day we weren’t in the mood to cook so we went over to my parents’ place and had dinner with them. Now we’re home and I’m going to try feeding Jakob at 11:00 instead of midnight and seeing how long he sleeps afterwards. Wish me luck!
p.s. to the Sharon who found me through the baby blog…thanks for your comments! I can’t reply directly so I’m putting it here. 🙂
p.p.s. I haven’t uploaded the camera lately so these are some of my favorite shots from the last few weeks.

It’s so nice that the store was still OK letting you exchange things. It sounds like a fun shopping trip and it must be great to finally be setting up your new house. Hopefully we will be doing the same by October!
