Grandma and Duncan
Jackson looking cute as ever
Grandpa and Grannie with Jackson
Moving on to Jackson. He had a big morning - his first outing in the world! We headed to his first pediatrician appointment, where his weight, length, and overall check-up was done. He is exactly 5 lbs. and is 18 inches long (Oh, by the way, Duncan is exactly 5 lbs too! In terms of weight/size these boys refuse to let the other win! Their weights have been in sync since birth!). That's 3 ounces above his birth weight and a quarter inch longer. Dr. McClellan, our pediatrician, feels that he is right on track. He will be monitoring Jackson (and soon Duncan) very closely, he said, due to their preemie age. We will be going to his office to get weight checks weekly. So, lots of field trips for the boys!
Thanks to everyone for their sweet cards and prayers. Wow, are we blessed!
I also want to let folks know about my mom. As mentioned before, she is currently at the Hospice facility in Louisville. For several days now, she has increased her sleep time to nearly full days and nights. Verbal communication is not happening and neither is eating/drinking. She is in no pain. We are all dealing with this as best we can. Prayers for my Dad and Grandparents, who are baring the weight of visits to the hospital and overall time with Mom the heaviest.
