Day 122! ~ HAPPY 4 MONTH BIRTHDAY!




4 MONTHS! 4 MONTHS! 4 MonThS!!!!! Can you believe it??? Mommy and Daddy can't. They watched that last video of my days and they said all those pictures seemed so long ago. 4 months I have been in this world when so many t-18 babies are not promised a breath. Thank you Lord not only for 4 months but for every breath.

Still no poopies. We are trying. Not much you can do for a little guy like me in this category. I'll get it. Just keep praying. I need a stinky day.....one with poop, that is!

Ok...so for my 4 month birthday we hung out at home lots. I stayed home with Dad and helped on my newest video (check it out if you can) while Mom took Joshua and Jonathan to their friend's house. They had such a good time playing with Rachel, Elizabeth and Noel that they didn't want to leave! But they did since they love me and can't stay away from me!......they will see them again at gym & swim and maybe get together another time. I tend to keep them cooped up here at home a bit so it is good for them to get out. We had some lunch together and hung out at home...all us boys snoozed....good day for snoozin'. Daddy went of to work and we headed outside for some fresh air. It began to rain a tiny bit but Mom and I sat under a tree (Mom called it God's umbrella) and we didn't get a drop on us while Joshua and Jonathan played in the Magic Clubhouse. Aunt Linda, Alyssa, and Gramma came over for a pizza party! We ate, sang on cookies sent by Bonnie (thank you!) and I just snuggled with my "Great" Aunt Linda....."great" is right... she was really calming and comfy and "great" to be around....good times.....or "great" times....Oh, "great"...I used "great" a "great" number of times.... Over all it was a "great" day:). Here's a shot of the "Prayer Bear" that Alyssa brought me! Isn't he cute??

Glad to hear you had a "great" day (bar the pooping).

Did you know there is a group on Facebook with 53 ppl praying for you?

Ok, so here I go again... hopefully Mommy and Daddy will not send you to California for me to be your math tutor. I guess I am caught up in your cuteness to count how many months you are celebrating. Whoaaa, I am not feeling so bright...for the third time in two days. You'd think I could read the titles of your entries to have a clue about how hold you really are. Yikes! No matter what, have a fabulous day today and every day that God has given.

Asking God on this GREAT DAY to make it perfect with poop. This is a very important part of getting through the day and being comfortable. Praise the Lord for 122 days Jacob, I am amazed at His goodness and your life. I love you little guy and continue to pray and check in on you each day. I am sure your mommy is relieved to see you doing so much better. I am too!!

Love, Laurie in Ca.

Congratulations! It's been a rough week at your house, but I'm glad to see things are looking up.

I know that many breastfed non-T18 babies can go a week without pooping and that this is normal. I wonder if, now that Joshua is back on breastmilk, if he's simply using every bit of nutrient and doesn't need to poop. I hope this is the case.

I'll send you all Happy Poopy Vibes anyway!
