We can't believe our son is already 6 months old. He had a great day today! He went to church, slept, went to SATCO, slept, played with some new blocks we got for him, slept, went on a walk with his friend Sam, and now is sleeping some more. :) God is so good to us and we give God all the praise for having brought Jacob this far. Everyday is a blessing!
I got a picture of Jacob after his nap doing this...is he trying to roll over???? Maybe???? One goal we would love is to see Jacob rolling over and sitting up by the time he's 8 months old. Originally we thought it might be too lofty, but it is JACOB we're talking about. He never goes by the books...so maybe he'll surprise us all and roll before we know it. Come on Jacob, you can do it!

After the ECHO they weighed him; he weighed 17 pounds 5 ounces with only his dry diaper on. This placed him at 49th percentile. About a month ago, he was in the 16th percentile, so he's made GREAT progress. YAY Jacob!
Then we met with the doctor and he reported that Jacob's pulmonary hypertension has decreased, but not enough to decrease his oxygen requirement. This means that we will be on oxygen at least until next spring. Once we have made it through the cold/flu season, we will begin to ween him off the oxygen slowly; like taking him off during the day and keeping him on through the night, or decreasing the flow, etc. Actually, Jeff and I think this is a good thing. They are using oxygen to help relax the vessels that take blood to his lungs, allowing his lungs to grow and develop.
Thanks for thinking of us today.

This is a close up of his cute face. I got this picture after he'd been fed and had fallen asleep in his bouncy seat. Precious! Now ladies, don't be too jealous of those lashes. Hee Hee.
Jacob had an outing about a week or two ago and he got to meet some of his mommy's teacher friends. We went to Longhorn Steakhouse for lunch. Teachers love summer break! We actually get to have a lunch with our friends for longer than "30 minutes." Jacob did such a great job on the outing and they doted over him so much! These are very special ladies and I am so honored to call them friends.

Here's a picture of the big guy sitting in his bumbo seat. He's really looking handsome these days! :)
