Jackson is 2 Month's Old


I can't believe time has gone by so fast and yet it's strange to think 2 months ago we didn't have a baby.  I feels like he's been here all along :)

Jackson just discovered his hands and feet a few days ago and now loves to suck on his left hand.  He also reaches out with his left hand and foot and will push off the strongest with his left while on his tummy.   I'm not saying he will be left handed (neither Steven or myself) are, but he definitely has a favorite side he uses.
