Tuesday March 22nd

Well Jackson continues to get lots of visitors, but we keep forgetting to take pictures! He was able to meet Julia's friend Megan. Megan and Julia went to high school together and also were college roommates. She was very excited for Megan to meet Jackson!

On Saturday afternoon, Jackson's primary nurse, Jackie and her husband came to visit. We were all very happy to catch up and Rick was interested to meet this little wonder his wife was caring for the last few months. Because of HIPPA rules, he wasn't allowed to know much about Jackson, but was glad to see how healthy and happy Jackson was. Jackson was very content being held by Jackie. He definitely knows who she is and was very relaxed with her.

After that, we took Jackson on his first road trip. We all went to San Marcos to meet some of Julia's family. Again everyone was very very happy to see Jackson doing so well, including his other Great Grandmother! She proclaimed that Jackson was very beautiful and happy.

This is Julia's last week at home so we are trying to enjoy every last minute. Today Ana-Cristina came by to meet Jackson and check on us. He was being kinda shy at first but towards the end he was making all his cute faces and cooing for Ana!

We will try and get better at taking more pictures. We wish we could capture how cute the dogs are with Jackson. When ever they enter the room they always come over to check on their brother. And if Jackson starts to get upset they rush to him to see if they can help -- too bad doggie kisses don't soothe a crying baby!

Sunday March 13th

Jackson had a great visit with his pediatrician. He is growing like a little weed! He is just over 20inches and was 10lbs!! Double Digits!! He is now allowed to sleep thru the night if he can, its not like a full 8 hours, since he doesn't go to bed until 11ish, but having 6 hours of uninterrupted sleep is a pretty nice thing for mom and dad! This past weekend Jackson had a visit from his Great Aunt Anne, Great Grandmother, Grandpa Mac and Nan! He was is a pretty good mood and everyone was so surprised how big he is getting. After our company left we all took a much needed bap. Jackson's favorite place to nap is laying on Greg and it's so cute! Julia only has 2 weeks of maternity leave left and she is starting to get a little sad, but is determined to enjoy every last minute with Jackson.
Jackson was given this awesome "Monkey Rug" We had to take naked pics on it!!
Can you believe I'm 10lbs!!

Tuesday March 1st

Awesome news today-- Jackson is unplugged!!! His doctor today told us we no longer have to use the apnea/brady monitor.  We are totally jazzed because for the first time in Jackson's life he is not hooked up to something. This makes like so much simpler for our family. Aside from that, Jackson was 9lbs 2.5oz. He is almost 20inches long. Below are a bunch of pictures from the last few days.
