A Happy 8 Weeks!!

Yes it is finally the day... Jonas is 8 weeks old today. What a glorious 8 weeks it has been... Until last night. I am officially posting our first moments as concerned and worried first time parents. Yesterday Jonas went in for his 2 month check up and of course his first round of vaccinations. (it was very sad, he cried!) anyway these shots are sometimes accompanied by a fever. and we were lucky enough to experience that last night. Jonas had a temp 0f 102.6 and well we don't know if that's something to be concerned about, so after talking to multiple people about it we decided to take him to the emergency room. unfortunately they didn't seem to think it was that big of an emergency. After waiting for a 1/2 hour or so, we found out that we would probably be waiting at least 3 hours so we decided to go home and see what we could do there. After a blessing from Daddy, a nice cool sponge bath, some baby Tylenol, a clean diaper and full belly, his fever had dropped dramatically. So all in all there was probably nothing to really worry about. But I think that pediatricians should warn you about stuff like that. they gave me all the paperwork on what to expect after shots so we knew that a fever was normal, unfortunately they didn't fill in the blanks of "don't be concerned unless your child's fever reaches a temperature of _____degrees Fahrenheit. " yes exactly... they should really fill that sheet out.
Anyway on to better things... We are getting closer and closer to capturing Jonas' Smiles on camera. Here are just a few shots!!
