Ok, a few photos to get Jack's Auntie Erica off my back

So, I've been a slacker about posting updates, but I swear I have good excuses!
1) two of Jack's godmommies flew up from California with their kiddos for 6 days and we were too busy partying with the munchkins
2) Jack got Baptised
3) Jack has been just way too damn cute lately, and I would rather be smooching his belly than posting.

Jack had some of his two month shots on Friday. He handled them like a champ - only crying and giving the nurse a "what the fuck" look for about 4 minutes. A lot of babies are fussy and crying for a few days afterwards, but Jack was an angel and even snuggled with his Grammy Q for an hour afterwards!
In bragging news, Jack has gained FIVE pounds since he was born (now 13.4 lbs) and 4.5 inches (now 24 inches)! He is in the 90th percentile for head, weight, and height. I think if they tracked hand span, he would be off the charts. Everyone mentions how large his hands are when they first see him, but until I saw this photo, I didn't really realize what they were talking about...
Yeah, that's my 8 week old son with the hands of a toddler. He learned to suck his thumb about 4 days ago, and other than the occasional gagging, he seems to be enjoying it!
Jack got baptised on May 31st, and I think we broke a church record for most godparents - SIX! Pastor Allen referred to everyone as "Jack's entourage" during the ceremony. I think the most special part of his baptism for me was when Pastor Allen wiped the water off of Jack's head with a hanky that belonged to my grandpa who passed away 7 days before Jack was born.
Here is Jack with all his godparents:
Here is Jack in his party suit. He was crying when he realized that he's ruined that suit for all other babies because none of them will match up to his cuteness:
Here is a photo that will go in our CPS file...Jack's godmommy Anne gave him a pirate tat. Look at his big fat frog belly!:

And for the final photo that the child welfare department will use to put Troy and I away for good, here is a sweet "do" that Troy gave Jack tonight during his bath:
