Day 31!

Wow.... we're about to break the 15,000 visitors mark since January 29th. Thanks for all the interest in my life... it means a lot to me and my family! Well I spent most of the night on the couch with Mommy or Daddy last night... I have them wrapped around my very little finger. Even when I pull my tube out like I did last night, Mommy just comes along and puts it back in for me! Late last night and early this morning Mommy and Daddy did a photo shoot with me.... they're so silly... they make me do the most ridiculous things. Check out some of the goofy pics below.

I went to see my doctor again today. Bad news: I'm down to 3 pounds 13 ounces. There goes the 4 pound barrier again... but my doctor has a plan to bust me right through it this time. We're going to increase my food and beef me up so I can be a linebacker... or at least be more than 4 pounds! More bad news: my doctor has the nerve to take a personal vacation next week so I can't go back and see him for two weeks.... so we'll just have to get the visiting nurse to weigh me so you all can be updated. I like her scale better anyways...it says I'm 4 pounds 1 ounce!

I did two things for the first time today that every little kid should do: 1. I visited the mall (my brothers were there with Grampa while I was at the docs) and 2. I rode my first merry-go-round! It was awesome! Actually, I think I slept through most of it. Can you believe that no one brought a camera? Geesh.

Mommy's cousin Jill came over to visit today with her little daughter Emily. Since she's a doctor I figured I'd get a chance to do the whole, "Look-At-Me-I'm-Not-Breathing" thing but since I was wireless it wouldn't have been as dramatic as in the past so I just slept a lot.

After dinner our whole family played a game where we had to throw little bean bags at a tic tac toe board... I wasn't very good at it.... but it sure was fun and everytime we played it made Mommy laugh until her belly hurt!

After my brothers were in bed I helped Mommy and Daddy make valentines for them for Valentines Day tomorrow (which also happens to be my 1 month birthday!)


Here's to breaking the odds....

HAPPY ONE MONTH BIRTHDAY LITTLE JACOB! Praying for you and your family! Please pray for mine too. We are expecting our Trisomy 18 baby girl, EVA, on March 17th. Praying that we beat the odds just as you have! Keep up the good work little man!

I'm not sure how I got to your blog, but have been visiting your site for a while. I am praying for your baby and for you as a family as well. It is so nice to see that ou are truly savoring each moment with your son. It is a great lesson for all of us. My children's baby days are beginning to fade from memory on some levels. My son turned 10 and my daughter will be 8. Sometimes you feel like you just kind of blindly stumble through baby years because it is a lot of work! Thank you for bringing me back to reality! Baby Jacob is an amazing little guy and so blessed to have such an amazing family. Have a blessed day!
