41 weeks 2 days

is how long I was pregnant. In that time, our froglet went from this

to this

41 weeks and two days is also how long its been since Jasper was born. In that time, he's gone from this

to this

Check him out, hanging out at our local pub with his dad, eating off his own plate and everything. Though I do feel compelled to refer you back to that first photo. His head is still exceptionally large and he still tends to sleep like that, with his head thrown back and his back arched. He's also started crawling, really belly off the floor hands and knees crawling. That seems to have happened overnight between Monday and Tuesday of this week. In fact, I caught him crawling in circles in his co-sleeper in his sleep that night. He's pulling himself up to standing and cruising along whatever he can hold onto. Sometimes this is a person, sometimes its his crib, sometimes its a cat. Right now its a Zappos box. I have new running shoes, but I may never be able to open the box.

Jasper had a check up today to celebrate 41 weeks of being alive. Okay, it was actually his nine month appointment, but 41 weeks is more fun. The verdict? Healthy kid. He's 22 pounds 8.5 ounces (not 25 pounds, as I've been announcing...) which puts him in the 75% percentile for his age. He's 2'4.75" tall (59%) and his head circumference is 18.5" (88%). Continuing to take after his dad there...

  1. Kara, this is your best blog to date, maybe. I am not going back to be sure, but this one is great. Love the pub picture. OMG, he is growing so much.
