Today was our one month pediatrician appointment! Jackson is now 8 lbs and 3 ounces and 20 inches. Jackson is doing great and in the words of our pediatrician, "He is a totally normal kid with a little zipper on his belly." Jackson is changing day by day, he is really getting big! Now if only he would sleep more at night than during the day!

Jackson is getting bigger everyday...his face changes and I notice every little thing about him the more I study him. Yesterday we saw the pediatric surgeon and he said his scar was looking great! We are going back on two months for another check up. The in home nurse came again and he was one pound heavier than he was last week (according to her scale). Jackson now weighs 7 lbs 12 ozs. We see our pediatrician again next Tuesday when Jackson will be ONE month old! Time flies!!

Well for those of you who do not know, Jackson was released last Thursday and brought home after only 12 days of being in the NICU! It has been overwhelming, incredible, and scary all at the same time. Jackson is doing great, he eats well and has already gained 8 oz since his release date (as per the pediatrician).
I cannot believe that he is here with us, he actually made it home before his due date! Words cannot describe what it feels like to be a mom, how incredible it is, exhausting it is, and how beautiful he is...
