This has been quite the week... Jen got sick last Saturday and was basically out of commission 'till she got some IV fluids for her super-dehydrated self on Tuesday.

Being dehydrated doesn't help moms who feed au naturale... So, WMJ got his first bit-o-formula this week. Formula and -- ... -- Jen's sister-in-law's extra stash. I find that a little odd, but Jen said it was wonderful. To each their own I suppose ;)

And of course, we don't know if it's an old wive's tale 'er what, but WMJ - like the tale - got his first cold within this first week of going off his mother-milk. He's got these really weird sounding coughs... It's... it's sad, but every once in a while kinda funny sounding. (What a great dad I am ;) )

Okay -- I'm off to make fun of.. I mean "take care of" my kid now..........

Latest Doctor's Appointment

On Monday WMJ had his 2 month appointment. "2 month appointment?! Isn't he older than that?"

Why yes, yes he is. Thanks for being so observant ;)

In fact he was 10 weeks old on Monday. He weighed in at 13lbs 15oz (75th to 90th percentile for his age), and was 25 inches tall (90th to 95th percentile).

Of course, he also got a shot while he was there. He didn't enjoy that in the least ;) Yesterday he put on his "Wesley-worry-you pants"... He seemed a little under the weather (extra fussy, red-ness around the eyes, etc) from the shot (well, we assume it to be the shot), and even had a bit of a fever. This morning he woke up right as rain, so here's to hoping that's one chunk of extra immunity down!
