The past few days with Jacob have been really fun! He is having more and more time when he is awake and alert. We are getting to hold him more and interact with him too. Here's some pictures for you to enjoy.
Look at those precious eyes! These moments are the reasons why we continue to pray and ask God for more and more. What a gift!
I decorated our door with get well notes from a 4th Grade group of girls at Woodmont. Thanks Ruth for these special notes!

Jacob's feeding issues are still hanging around...but...he is moving milk through his system (we have poop to prove it) and when he does spit up, it's more just the mucus from his stomach and not milk. This is improvement! We think part of the problem is that he has a tube down his throat, which gags him, and makes him spit up. So we're praying for more progress in that area and hopeful that we can come off the vent again soon. We can't come off the vent until the doctors are confident that he won't spit up and aspirate.
On another note...since we have moved into our new room, there have been 3 different families admitted to the room across from us, then discharged and sent home. I am wondering if we missed our calling and picked the wrong room. :)
