I can't help but wonder if the slow eating and the spitting up has anything to do with the little organs that were squeezed back into his stomach cavity and I worry when I think that he may be having a harder time then most babies, it just isn't fair...but I also stop and think that many babies that were born totally normal act the exact same way. It is hard to get all of these thoughts out of your head when your child was born a little "different." However, when I read my fellow omphalocele mom's blogs and see that their little ones perhaps have hernias too, I know that we are not alone and that Jackson has so many friends out there just like him.
Thank you to the moms and dads who have been so brave to tell their stories and keeping everyone updated on their baby's life...the good, the excellent, and the incredible.
I am so thankful to have my little man in my life and last night when my husband came home early from work and exclaimed, "I came home early because I wanted to spend time with my son," my heart swelled with great love for my little family!
This is one of Jackson's footprints on my brother's arm...aww Uncle Ian!
