Jack was a shit at the doctors today.

He was perfectly fine in the waiting area with all of the toys, but when it came time for the check up, he was having none of it. We could hardly weigh and measure him; he didn’t want the doctor near him. He was completely non-compliant and wouldn’t talk to the doctor, wouldn’t look at…

End of Summer Cold.

Well, our family’s annual end of summer cold has descended upon us. First me, I brought it home from work I’m sure, now Jack. If I’m lucky it will skip over Jeremy and grammy.  Poor Jack is all stuffy with a low grade fever. But he’s in a very good mood overall. We’re supposed to…

Are we having more children?

No. I don’t think so. Birth control is my friend. Jack is a handful and half while also managing to be a miracle child. We consider ourselves extremely lucky to have him, and very fulfilled by his singular presence. Plus he’s got his mama, his dada, his Grammy, and his auntie all wrapped around his charming little…

Where did this big boy come from?

Jack is closer to being a two-year-old, then he is to a one-year-old. A fact which continues to boggle my mind daily.  Where did this big boy come from? He was 30 pounds at his last baby well checkup. It seems like another lifetime ago that I was counting his breaths as his tiny 3-pound…

Don’t Blink.

Jack is on the move! I had to WORK to get these shots of our baby boy. He is walking and talking up a storm, and turning into a little boy so fast it’s scary. I don’t want to miss a thing.

Pink

My son Jack and I were strolling thru Target the other day, and we went by the toy aisle. They had one of those large cage bins full of colorful beach balls out. There was a mother with her son, a boy a few years older than Jack, and he was making a selection from…

Update

Jack had his monthly visit with his occupational therapist on Monday, she says keep up the good work. She expects him to start walking anytime now, but no hurry. Jacks teething saga continues, he’s got three teeth on the bottom now, and one on top. Plus another top one has just barely started cutting. For…

Mother’s Day

 Yesterday marked my second Mother’s Day. I found this card on Jacks incubator last Mother’s Day. It was put there by the ‘sunshine committee’, a group of nurses at the hospital where Jack was born. They make heartwarming things like this for the NICU parents on Holidays. How amazing is that!? As if NICU…
