Hello, world!  Welcome to the next installment of Jonathan Skipper.  He's an amazing little guy.  (If you would like to read about Jonathan's life thus far, you can read about it here on CaringBridge).

This is where we'll post how Jonathan is progressing, and how Jeff and I are progressing as parents (it's still a crazy thought that we are Mommy and Daddy!)

If you are a parent, then you know that living with a newborn is so busy!  (For those of you saying, "Wait...he was born in July...?"  Yes, he was, but he wasn't supposed to be born until a week ago so he is developmentally now a newborn.)  Anyway, so we are always busy at the Skipper home, but I will post as often as I can!  Maybe that will be more often than I think since Nanny got Jonathan a swing today!  Lifesaver...

We just spent our first kind-of holiday together for Halloween.  J looked so cute in his little outfits!  We put a table with some Toosie Roll Pops in a bowl at the end of the driveway so Wesley wouldn't be bothersome because he goes crazy when people come to the door.
The pumpkin is actually just a bib, it was just a very big bib.

Jonathan went for his first pediatrician visit last Friday and it went very well.  He weighed in at 8 lbs 10 oz and 20 inches long!  He was wearing clothes though, so those added an oz or two to his weight.  J also saw the retina doctor on Tuesday, and he said Jonathan could not be doing any better!  A couple of months ago he had a procedure done where they injected some medicine into his eyes so blood vessels could grow towards the retinas.  This procedure is so new in infants; the first infants who ever had it done are just now turning 4 and 5 years old, so we will see how things progress in Jonathan.

That's about it for now.  Of course, we are busy being parents.  It's diaper, feed, burp, sleep, clean and rest while J sleeps, then repeat it all.  All while trying to keep Wesley from messing with his new little brother!  Wes is very curious!
