Today is Aaron's five month day. He's been here for five months. Looking back, I can't believe that it has been only five months. It seems like longer. I feel like so much has happened.
I've come to except the fact that baby time is not the same as normal time. It's like cat or dog years. One year for me is like 10 for Aaron. Five months ago I was pretty much exactly the same. He's totally different after 5 months. Anyway, here are the pictures.
Taken yesterday just before bed time
Look at the difference! In just 5 months he goes from being just a little tiny head baby to big monster baby (a very cute monster baby) (these parentheses are for Jo). Also, notice his hair color. It's a lot lighter than it was in the beginning.
The previous post mentioned the last crazy sick month we've just had. For an update on that, Aaron and Jo are doing much better. I got lucky enough to escape with only a hoarse voice and mild sore throat (so far(more parentheses, can you handle this!?!)).
To any readers, forgive the silly parenthetical statements, they are for Jo. If you want to know more, see her blog.

(Read this post after the one below it, I know poor planning on our part.)
So, once we figured out that Aaron's costume was going to be more bond than vamp, I started thinking of bond movie names that could be modified with the word 'baby'. For example, the upcoming bond movie would be Quantum of Baby, instead of Quantum of Solace.
Here are the rest for your viewing pleasure. Be warned though, some aren't that great:
From Russia with Baby
On Her Baby's Secret Service
Babies Are Forever
Live and Let Baby
The Baby with the Golden Pacifier
The Baby Who Loved Me
For Baby Eyes Only
A View to a Baby
The Living Babylights
License to Baby
Baby Never Dies
The Baby is Not Enough
Baby Another Day

Question: What do Jo and Alex do for fun when they have very little free time?

Despite the fact that this is called the "Jo and Alex" blog, we all know it's really the "Aaron and Sometimes His Parents" blog. So, to save any grandparents/interested parties from having to read spiels about Max Payne or the like when really all they want to see is pictures of the baby, I've created my own separate blog. Originally the idea was to post something every day (thus the title) just to get me writing every day, but I don't know that I'm actually going to have time to do daily posts. But, too bad, the title stands.

Thursday was Aaron's two month birthday. To celebrate, we decided to give him a haircut. His first haircut ever. Who has ever heard of a two-month-old needing a haircut?

Aaron had his two month checkup today. At the baby checkups they do some measurements. I thought that I'd share them with you. He is 12 lbs 11 oz and 25.25 inches tall! I thought he'd weight a bit more than that but he is still in the 75% for his weight. But get this, his height.... 97% percentile!!!! What? Where'd that come from? I'm 5'7"... why didn't I get any 97% percentile height?
Another way to look at it: he has grown almost 5 inches in less than 2 months! (Redundancy incoming alert)...... WHAT? All I can say is that babies are crazy. Or at least my baby is crazy.
Another thing they did at this check up were his two month vaccinations. Boy, was that fun! He was so upset for hours, his legs (where the injections were administered) got a little red and puffy, needless to say it was a frightening day for under-warned, first time parents.
After some baby Tylenol, mommy cuddles, an exploding diaper, and finally some food he settled down and was pretty happy for the rest of the day. What a relief when he finally started being happy and smiling again.
Here are my two favorite pictures from today. He was showing off his new favorite activity.

Yesterday was not a good day for sleeping for Aaron. He usually has three substantial naps during the day; yesterday he had one and a half. Needless to say, by the end of the day he was exhausted and fussy. After having some food, a bath, and lots of cuddling, he finally went to sleep at around 11.

Today, Aaron is one month old. I can't believe it's only been a month. I know babies go through big changes as they grow older, especially in the first few months / first year. But I was not expecting this. Here is a quick overview of his weight these past few weeks.
Day 1: 9 lbs 12 oz
Day 12: 9 lbs 2 oz
Day 31: 11 lbs 12 oz
Whoa! Two pounds in about two weeks. That is a > 20% increase in weight in just two and a half weeks. I wonder if you can feed newborns too much food. It's on my list of questions for the pediatrician next time we visit.
Anyway, here's the part you all wanna see. One month pictures:
