Well we had his 2 month check up yesterday and he is a WHOPPING 14 lbs. 3 oz. Bigger than Jacob and Jaron both were at this age. He is wearing 3 months size clothes. He is also 24 1/2 inches long. He's growing GREAT! Still enjoying mommy's milk only. It is such a good feeling to know that I have everything my baby needs. I just realized the other day the meaning of his name. I know Jonah means dove but what does dove mean? What did it mean in the bible? The dove returned to the Ark after the flood to let Noah and his family know that everything was going to be alright. To me Jonah was a relief, having a child without a cleft was God's way of telling me that everything is going to be alright. I thought it could never happen. It's almost like the devil was telling me "You can't have a normal baby". I was scared to get pregnant this last time and doubted the entire pregnancy if the ultrasound was right. "Does he really have a cleft and they just can't see it?" So Jonah has been my easiest baby. Even though he has colic from 11pm-12am EVERY night. It's so weird. Just one hour of crying then he's done. The doctor said he would grow out of it around 4 months old.

Here is one of Jacob's many pictures. He drew this all by himself with no ideas or help from anyone. So detailed. Notice the sail, motor on the boat, sail, stearing wheel for boat, fish with bubbles and jumping dolphin and the captain on the boat oh and don't forget the swirls of wind above his head. SO CUTE!!!
Uncle Tim came to visit and showed Jacob how to ride his bike without training wheels. He had dropped his bike a few weeks ago and broke the training wheels so we bought him a kick stand and took off the training wheels. Now is a "BIG BOY"!!!
