No Pictures?

Stop the presses! Something miraculous happened today; something I never expected: Jax has gone over a week without having his picture taken. I know, hell has frozen over.

In order to reestablish order out of this chaos, here are some pictures of Jax with his new hairdo: spikey mohawk. I'll give you one guess as to who his hairstylist is, and no, it isn't Auntie Molly and it's not me!

I'll give you a hint: you can see his proud smirk in the left-hand corner of the picture!

If you think Jax looks a bit stocky in this picture, it is true that he is a big kid. In fact, I think the word our pediatrician used to describe him yesterday was "beast." But he has actually become more average over the past two months. He weighs 17 lbs. so he is in the 84th percentile (down from the 94th) and is 26.5" long, putting him in the 90th percentile (down from the 97th). So he isn't as overgrown as he was at his two-month check-up, but still a big, healthy kid. He is starting to enjoy his rice cereal. Here he is, not only enjoying the food, but also trying to eat his bib:

And lastly, here he is, trying to learn to sit up! It's only a matter of time...

Phew! Now that you have been inundated with pictures, I feel like everything is right in the world again :)
