5 months

I can't believe it!! John-Douglas turned 5 months on Saturday. Where has the time gone already. It still seems so unbelievable. I truly have been blessed!! In one sense I can't believe how quickly the time has been flying, but in another, I can't believe there ever was a time he wasn't here!! And every day I think I've reached my fullest height of love for that boy, and every day I find I love him even more.

I think back and realize how much we've been through. There was a time before him, there were 6 we lost, and a time when we didn't even think we could have children. I'm still so dazed at how quickly it's all flown by. I still remember the day that I got that positive pregnancy test for him a little over a year ago!! And all the stress and worries about him throughout it all....but now he's here healthy and the sweetest, happiest baby...and a whole new host of stresses and worries develop! :)

A mommy's work is never done!!

JD's stats

Birth - 6lb 15oz and 19inch

1 week - 6lb 15 1/2 oz and 19 1/4 inch

1 month - 8lb 14 1/2 oz and 21inch

2 month - 12lb 1 1/2 oz and 23 1/4 inch

3 month - 14lb 12 1/2 oz and 25 inch

4 month - 15lb 9 1/2oz and 26 1/4 inch

We haven't done the 5 month ones, and since he won't be going to the doctor who knows what the next level will be. But I'm tempted to at least measure him...b/c he has to be close to 28inch by now!
