Today is the one-year anniversary of Jacks homecoming. On this day, last year after 65 days in the neonatal intensive care unit, Jack came home with us. My husband and I had everything we needed, but we were in no way prepared, but that didn’t matter. Jack was home. He was all ours. We didn’t […]
He stood there for a few seconds all by himself, before losing his balance. It was totally AMAZING. A definite first.
Jack is over 13 months old now, 10 months adjusted age. He has four teeth on the bottom, and working on the fourth up top. He’s not walking yet, but that doesn’t prevent him from behaving like any less of a toddler. He has restless nights, and fits of fury; screeching at me like a […]
I’m a Fuerte Avocado tree, and I’m one year old.
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 […]
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 […]
Jacks Grammy and I , took him on his very first mall trip yesterday. He did really well. He loves to people watch. He definitely hit his limit after a couple shops though. Next time we will take daddy with us, for some extra hands.
As promised, here are Jacks 12 month chalkboard pictures. I can’t believe my baby boy is over a year old. This time last year, we were spending our days and nights, watching him sleep in his incubator. Our home was a level 3 neonatal intensive care unit. Jacks has come so far over the last […]
The past couple of weeks have been a little hectic. But the birthday party went off without a hitch (even if we did forget to put out the bubble machine.) Jack is still teething, that whole top row is coming in, poor baby. Jack likes to feed himself table food more, and more every day. […]
He came flying out of me (The doctor told me to push, then she told me to stop pushing, but I couldn’t stop.) She caught him in mid air! True story.
Yesterday, our wonderful friends and family members came out to help us celebrate Jack, and Grammys birthdays. (Jacks birthday is one day before his Grammy.) Jack is so well loved by so many people, we are truly grateful. Tomorrow, is Jacks official first birthday. I’m planning a low key day, with bubbles, and picture taking, […]
The third tooth is peaking out this morning. Hopefully we can all get some much needed rest tonight, before the other top teeth make their appearance. My chore list is full this week, I have a lot to do before the birthday party this weekend. 🙂 ❤
Jack is in a lot of pain from teething, and having a hard time sleeping. Baby Tylenol has no effect, thinking of trying baby ibuprofen. Thoughts?
