Time is a Lion

Jack visited the cider mill for the first time. He seems to be taking a greater interest in the foods Mom and Dad are eating. I can't wait to feed him avocados.

Jack and Mom were present to cheer me on at the Detroit Zoo Charity 10k. I finished a respectable 180th in a field of 2200, 49:54.

We later got a nice early entry into the zoo, and many of the animals were quite active, especially the hominids (not the monkeys).

At his four month checkup Jack is now 14lbs, 9oz and 25.75 inches, placing him in the 60th and 75th percentiles for his age respectively for weight and height. Doc says he looks like a million bucks and was dazzled how he has gained so much weight on breast milk alone. Two more months and we'll be transitioning to the spoon!

So Awesome.

Jack is quite the character these days.

An emergent personality is now quite front and center. Jack wakes up from a full night's sleep with a rather charming disposition, sleeps in the truck on the way to Grandma's or daycare, and seems curious about many things, especially dinner, outdoors and the computer. He's been testing his voice out in non-screaming modes. I'm just waiting for one of his giant silent laughs to become a world-shaking chirp.

Life has good meaning. I always try to ask myself that each night. Recently it's never an issue.
