Well today marks exactly 5 months and one day since Jackson was born. I can’t believe it’s already been that long! It’s been a blast and it’s getting more fun every day. Many have been requesting more photos of our little guy so yesterday before I left for my last bridal portrait session I snapped some photos of my two favorite people. Jackson had just finished eating so ignore the goo on him…
We were driving around the other day and Nicole sat in the back with Jackson and shot this video on her cellphone, I’m pretty sure Jackson now qualifies and the cutest kid ever….Enjoy!
We finally got to leave the hospital around 7pm yesterday after we took our car seat safety class/test at 5pm. Good thing we took the class because we were going to do everything wrong (really babies-r-us shouldn’t sell all the extra things like pads for the shoulder straps, comfy headrests, mirrors to put on seats to see the baby, etc… because they all void the warranty of the car seat and things like the mirror go from functional to dangerous projectiles in a wreck).
But then it was time, the trip home was upon us!
On the way out we decided to stop at the winter wonderland and get a family photo. The first photo was a little shaky and I made the lady take another, is that bad or just the photographer in me?
Now that the car seat had been tested it was time to put it to action! Jackson seemed pretty comfy and we made it the entire way without a peep of discomfort.
The entire time Jackson was in a hospital he was on a pretty regular, but that would all change.
We got him home and he was wide awake…all night…morning…day…and finally decided to take a nap around 4pm. In an attempt to get him to sleep last night we tried just about every bed, seat, swing and flat surface we had. Nothing worked except laying on mom. So that’s were he remained.
Sorry for the long gap between updates, but I guess having nothing really to update is a good thing. Jackson is doing great! The doctors seem very optimistic that he’ll be home Monday or Tuesday!!! After the initial night of his A’s and B’s he hasn’t had anymore episodes. The doctors told us that sometimes premees just kinda forget to breath but that Jackson seems to be remembering.
It’s almost harder now because he’s doing so good we just want to get him home. He’s seems to be really happy and surprisingly calm (let’s hope that lasts, haha). Well here’s some photos from the past few days:
