He's doing really good at home. We have finally found a routine that works for him. He wakes each morning around 6:30 needing a diaper change, and then sleeps again until 8. He wakes up and we play for around an hour. He eats at 9, and goes down for a small nap around 10. That nap only lasts around 30-40 minutes. He's up and ready to play some more by about 10:45. Then he eats again at 12, and by 12:30, he's down for a nice LONG nap. Sometimes he sleeps until 2:30 or 3:00. WOW. We're loving that! Then he eats again, and plays for the rest of the evening. Sometimes we give him a bath before bedtime, which is about 8:30 or 9. He sleeps almost through the night, which is so nice. We hesitate to even write this because Jacob never follows rules (he makes his own), but hopefully this routine will stick.
We have a visit tomorrow (Wednesday) with Tennessee Early Intervention to see what kind of services Jacob will need to get him caught up with his development. He's getting stronger and stronger each day. Pray that it goes well.
Here's some pictures of the past few days. Enjoy!
Jeff, Jackson, and Jacob ready for our first walk together...Jackson was so excited he was twirling around and around.
Jacob fell asleep after the walk. Aparently he didn't seem to mind the great outdoors.
Jacob and Julie after the walk. Also, did you notice the yard in the background? Thank you to the SonSeekers class at church for coordinating care for our yard while we were in the hospital. It looks GREAT!
Jacob has discovered his hands more and more. When he doesn't have a pacifier, you'll see him putting his whole hand in his mouth. It's cute, and so is the outfit...
