Growing Strong

Jackson has officially hit the 2-3 week growth spurt. He is about 9 pounds now and is cluster feeding (eating every 45 mins for about 4 hours). He is wearing me out! The good thing about the growth spurt is that when he gets into a deep sleep he is out for at least 3 hours.

I will be going to the lactation support group again this Wednesday. I can't wait to weigh him and see just how much he has gained. Last week he was 8 lb 3 oz. He also has his first doctors appointment on Thursday. He has outgrown at least one outfit that I know of. He is growing so fast! I can't believe that he is over 2 weeks old.

Jackson got to take his first bottle on Friday. He did really well with it. I think Jason really enjoyed getting to feed him.

We also took him to church for the first time on Sunday. He did pretty good. Everyone was very excited to get to see him. He loved the music part of the service. Here is a picture before we left.

The Time Has Arrived...

It seems like yesterday that we were sitting in Dr. Houserman's office getting the news that we were once again pregnant. God has blessed us so much through this fertility journey. It has been a roller coaster for sure but all the pain is going to pay off very soon. We have to be at the hospital at 5:00 tonight for overnight induction. I imagine Jackson should arrive sometime Friday afternoon to early evening. Dr. Daniel has informed me that if he is not here by 8:00 pm then we will take him by c-section. Please pray that everything goes smooth and that Jackson cooperates and tolerates labor well.

I found out that the hospital does have WIFI so we should be able to update with some pictures shortly after his birth. Thanks for all the prayers and continued support.
