Monday February 14th

We made it through the night!! It was a little stressful, but we split up the overnight feedings so we each got a little bit of sleep. Jackson slept ok, but not great. We are working on fixing his schedule. He seems to have his nights and days flipped, so we are hoping that soon he with some help, we can him to sleep a little better at night.

Today we had an appointment with his pediatrician. So far so good. Mainly we were there to set out a plan for the different doctors we need to meet with over the next 6 months or so. We will have another appointment next week. So far we are really liking Dr. Terwelp and are very happy with our choice.

Our dogs returned home today from DogBoys, which is this awesome dog boarding camp. They got to run around all weekend and even got to go on some long hikes. So when then got home, they were pretty low key, but very interested in the newest member of our household. As we thought, Duke is very protective and stays pretty close to Jackson. Friend doesn't seem to care one way or the other, but we think he might be really tired from all of the fun at DogBoys.

Lastly this evening we gave Jackson a bath a home. He loves getting a bath. Dr. Terwelp told us to give him a bath each evening and then feed him to try and set up a routine. We won't use soap every night, its more just a chance to show Jackson that its time to start getting ready for bed. We are willing to try anything to get him to sleep so a bath he got! Of course, Duke had to be in the bathroom too while Jackson was in the bath, making sure we did everything right :)

We are so happy to have Jackson at the house with us. We hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day--ours was definitely filled with a ton of love!!

Taking a nap on his Nap Nanny. A friend suggested we register for this and so glad we did. Keeps him at an angle when he sleeps to help with his reflux.
All clean and bundled for bed.

  4. I haven't checked-in for a while, but welcome home, Jackson! I'm glad you like Dr. Terwelp. His partner, Dr. Jennifer Jones is great too! Their office and staff are awesome. The superhero theme for their office is pretty cool too. :) God bless your beautiful family! Rowena
