Happy One Month Jacob!!

Today is Jacob's one month birthday!

He doesn't have too many "first time" things this month but here's what he's been up to in this first month of life.

Eating.

Sleeping.

Pooping.

Repeat.....Repeat....Repeat!

Seriously, though, do you expect much more to happen in your first month of life?

We have taken him for some quick shopping trips for groceries and such.  His first time at church happened to be Easter Sunday. (Which reminds me, I never posted our Easter pictures...gotta do that).  He also went on his first GeoCache adventure, but I doubt he'll remember much....he was asleep!

Some quick stats on Jacob, based on his 2 week well-baby check.

Weight:  8 lbs 6 oz at birth....dropped to 7 lbs 13 oz before we left....up to 9 lbs 1 oz at 2-week check.

Height: 21 inches at birth....21 and 1/4 inches at 2 week check.

There has been so many people who see pictures of Jacob and say "Oh my goodness...he looks just like Quinn!"  So to further prove that point, here are a few comparisons of Quinn and Jacob at 1 month of age.

Quinn

Quinn

Kind of scary, huh?!?

I'll be honest, I prayed while I was pregnant that one day people would be able to see my two boys together and think, "Oh, those boys have to be brothers".....I just didn't expect I would get a second son who looks so much like my first!  Jacob has some traits that are specifically fit for him, but at times he makes facial expressions that look EXACTLY like ones Quinn made.  And to make matters worse, I saved almost all of Quinn's clothes, so seeing Jacob in outfits that Quinn wore, makes the comparison even more intense.

I can't wait to see what Jacob has in store for me for month 2!
