New Pictures

I took Jacoby to Sears today to get his 3 Month pictures taken.  What a difference from the last time we were there.  Last time, he fussed the entire time... today, he laughed and smiled the whole way through!  He was definitely a ham today.  I added all of the pictures from the session in my photo albums on the right side of the screen.  If you haven't looked at those photo albums lately, I also added some more July pictures a week or so ago.  Here's one of my favorites from today.

Jacoby is 3 Months Old!

Jacoby turned 3 months old on August 18th.  I haven't taken him in to get his professional 3 month pictures yet (hopefully we'll do that sometime this week), but I took my monthly picture of him next to his elephant.  It's amazing how quickly he is growing.  I included his 1 month picture right after the first one so you can see the difference.  (Notice also how much less hair he has now than he did 2 months ago!)

Jacoby is enjoying his jumperoo now.  He loves staring at the toucan hanging above his head and playing with a noisy ball.  He actually reaches out and touches the ball!

Another cute thing that Jacoby has started doing lately is putting his arms up behind his head.  When he eats, he almost always has one arm up touching the back of his head.  When he sleeps or is getting sleepy they go up as well, but he even likes at least one arm up if he's just laying around.  Here's a picture I caught of him doing this on the floor.
Adam and I picked out this hat for Jacoby before he was born and I just couldn't wait to try it out on him.  It's a little big, but I think he looks pretty cute!
This last picture is of Jacoby with his dino-pal and matching pjs.  The dinosaur has a crazy laugh when you squeeze him and Jacoby was making the funniest faces, but I couldn't quite catch them on camera.  You may be seeing some pictures in the near future of Jacoby wearing a dinosaur costume!!! :)
This past week was Adam's first week away at the police academy.  Jacoby and I did pretty well here by ourselves, but we sure did miss Adam!  There were a couple of late nights, but we made up for it by napping during the day.  We also checked out our new snazzy Newburgh Walmart that opened this week.  Adam is leaving at around 3 am on Monday to go back to the academy for week 2 of his 16 week training.  I'm hoping this week goes by as quickly as last week did!  Maybe I'll work on getting some videos on here this week.

Doc Visit and Cricut

Jacoby had his 2 month well visit last week. He weighs 13 1/2 lbs. (we thought he weighed more) and is 24 1/4 inches long. He is in the 75th percentile for both. The doctor thinks he has acid reflux, which explains some of his fussiness. We started him on a prescription and I think it's starting to help. Poor guy. He's doing a lot more kicking and "talking", but is apparently camera shy, because he stops as soon as I pull the video camera out every time. I'm still working on getting a good video. Oh, Jacoby is also balding. He saw cousin Elaina's "do" and thought he'd copy. :) Here are a few pictures of our boy. I love his shirt in this first one!

He has found a new friend. Jacoby usually smiles when this monkey gives him kisses.

Prince Jacoby. I don't know why, but I think it's hilarious when I'm changing him and his shirt gets stuck on his head.

This is for Aunt Glo and anyone else who likes to scrapbook. I started working on Jacoby's scrapbook with the help of my new Cricut (not the bug, the die-cut machine) that Adam got me for my B-day. Aunt Glo and the girls also gave me a ton of supplies for my baby shower. This is what I try to do when Jacoby will actually take a nap in his crib. (He's a bit of a Momma's boy.) Here are a couple of the pages I've done.
