Big milestones this week - Hit 34 weeks on Saturday (this is the marker for where they had hoped he'd be born after I was admitted to the hospital. Weight is now a whopping 6lbs! We are currently working on learning how to eat (and, ideally, breathe at the same time). Jackson is a fan (see photo 3...). As you can see, his favorite hobbies currently include gaining weight/growing more baby, faceplanting into mom so he can lick her (this is what he is doing in the third photo), snuggling after working hard to nurse and, of course, tangling his wires in his cute little toes. I've told him that dad can help him learn some cable management skills. 😀
414407536141440753612018-03-28Our NICU has a really great team of parent mentors who put together some really cool projects to help new NICU moms. One of those is the Mr. Potato Head project, which helps share with friends and family just how little these micropreemie baby's are by comparing them with a familiar toy. Jackson got his first photo with Mr. Potato Head yesterday. We had to document the occasion by using one of the awesome cribcards from everytinything - specialvisitor seemed to be a good choice!
408597187940859718792017-03-20I've recently made some emergency crib cards, translated to French, German, Italian, Spanish, Dutch and even Gaellic!
Made to be used by all, from mountain professionals to the general public.
