Blessed...


So far, it's been a pretty good week for Jacob. He's learning to do lots of things! He is beginning to push his chest up with his arms, definately kicking around his legs ALOT more (which means more strength...), and starting to eat some baby food too. He's such a champ! His physical therapy sessions are going great, and each time we go, we learn more things that we can do with Jacob to help him strengthen his arms, legs, and core. I'll try to get some more pictures this week and show you what he's doing...

Some of our favorite moments this week have been when he wakes up from naps...he just smiles and makes loud screeching noises. It's so funny. He's beginning to imitate us alot more and just laughs when he does something we do.

He's growing so much! He is already 19 pounds and 28 1/2 inches tall. He is wearing size 3 diapers already, and in 9 month clothing. The 6 month stuff is just too short and tight. We've already cleared out the closet a couple of times with the clothes that he doesn't fit into anymore...sniff sniff.

Here's a few more pictures of Jacob. He's wearing a bib from our friend Anne...it says, "Bless, Blessed, Blessing." I don't think it needs any more explanation.



God is SO good to us. We continue to thank God daily for our miracle...each day with him is such a blessing, and we will NEVER ever take that for granted...even on days that don't go our way. God is faithful.
Thanks for checking in on us. May you have a blessed week!

  1. Oh my. He is not little any more. I better start lifting weights to strengthen my arms, or I won't be able to play tug-o-war with my tiger guy!!! Ha Ha. We are so pleased! Thank you God. I too will never take him for granted, or Audrey ethier! I know now what other grandparents feel about their little miracles. Love and blessings:GJ
