100th Post...

I'll be honest...I never thought this blog would reach 100 posts. When we started this blog, we weren't sure how long we'd be needing to update on Jacob's health, if at all. However, here we are...100 posts later, with millions of miracles in between. God has been good to us! Thank you for investing your time and prayers on behalf of our family. Here's to hundreds more!

Jacob is still fighting his cold, but we do feel like its getting a little better. Poor guy, he doesn't even know he's sick. He's got snot coming out of his nose and he's just smiling away! He's coughing throughout the day, yet, he plays like nothing is wrong. He's sounds like a frog when he makes noise, but he still makes me! He's been satting great and has not needed any extra oxygen throughout this cold. What a trooper!

On the developmental side of things...there's only a few things to report about Jacob's progress. He is not "scooting" per say, but he has found a way to maneuver himself completely around in his crib. I walked into his room to check on him during a "nap" and found his head on the opposite end of the bed from where I left him and he was "talking" to himself. :) Here's the pic of how I found him.

He also has gotten alot stronger in the past few weeks and his "throwing" arm (he's a lefty we think) is definitely stronger! He is constantly picking things up and throwing them back down. He always reaches for things just to see if he can tip them over or pull them down. Lovely! Here's a sequence of pictures of him doing just that...

Also, good news...we scheduled our sleep study for April 9th. This will be the true test to see if Jacob will be ready to come off oxygen. You can mark it on your calendars if you want and be praying for Jacob to really show these doctors what he's made of!

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