23,328,000 Seconds and Counting

6480 hours, 388,800 minutes, or nine months ago, Jared was born.  No wonder it seems like he has been in our family forever!  That is a lot of fun-filled seconds. 

Jared went to the doctor's office for his nine month check up on Monday.  He had to get a shot that we missed at his last appointment.  Jared handles shots like a champ, so I wasn't worried.  The nurse started preparing his leg to get the shot.  She found the site, opened an alcohol swab to clean it, and suddenly Jared started screaming bloody murder.  Some of the alcohol had flipped into his eye!  Poor baby.  He cried it out, and within three minutes of getting the shot (and a bottle) he was giggling milk out his nose.
This month, Jared's head circumference is a whopping 47 cm, putting him above the 90th percentile for boys in his age group.  He is 28 inches tall and weighs 20 lbs. 10 oz.  You may be wondering what happened to the tiny baby we brought home 270 days ago.  Our theory is that Jared's cheeks ate him.
