Growing Up Jackson- The First Four Weeks


The changes and growth we have seen in Jackson in the past four weeks is truly amazing. He has gone from a tiny newborn who only slept, ate (ALL the time!), peed, and pooped to an active and alert one-month old who is interacting with us more and more each day. He loves listening to books and when I sing to him. One of his favorite things to watch is our ever-present companion, Evan the cat. He'll now allow us to put him in his swing, and actually enjoys it! The mirror and mobile in his crib are some of his favorite things to look at and he'll entertain himself long enough for me to fold a load of laundry or grab something to eat. I don't know how we got blessed with such a happy baby, but he hardly ever fusses too. Although my doctor says that your children always pay you back at some point in their life, so I know our time will come! Oh, and he also weighs ten pounds as of yesterday! That means he has put on 2 1/2 pounds in 4 short weeks! Ryan and I feel truly blessed to have such an amazing child and we can't wait to see what the next four weeks brings!
