Who needs oxygen???

So, this morning, I went into Jacob's room to change his diaper and get his day started....and this is what I walked into...

I promise you...I did not take them off and I don't know how the nasal cannula ended up behind his head on the bed, but nevertheless, that's exactly where they were. So, I snapped a picture and then snapped a picture of the Sat monitor as well. We were TOTALLY excited to see this!!!

The number on the left is his sat...that's right 100! Yay! The Amazing Jacob is showing off for you all...and we're pretty excited about it!

I love this picture of Jacob and Jackson. It's just precious and I had to share it with you all. Jacob is really beginning to look like a little boy and not a baby. (sniff sniff) And Jackson is so great with Jacob, he lets him do just about anything to him. It's wonderful.

Didn't you know that shoes are the latest and greatest in appetizing treats? Don't worry, he can't walk yet, so these shoes have never really been on the ground. :) But sooner or later we're going to have to let Jacob in on the are really pretty nasty!

For those wondering about Jacob's upcoming appointments...we've got Cardiology on January 25th and Pulmonology on January 29th. These are the two doctors that decide what treatment will be for lung growth, pulmonary hypertension, and oxygen requirements. We are anxious to see what they have to say about Jacob's need, or lack thereof, for the oxygen. Thanks for lifting him up in prayer about these things.

Thanks for checking in with us. Have a wonderful day!
