A beautiful thing...




As I took a picture today of my "big man" and I mean big man. I realized that I took the same picture two months ago to the day in the same outfit. At one month Jackson was given the"failure to thrive" diagnoses. It was the hardest thing I have ever had to hear. You think the worst. Well two months later we are laughing in the face of "Failure to Thrive". Mr Jackson weighed in at 17lbs 11 ounces on Friday. I have to share these pictures they almost make me want to cry. That time was so hard. I don't even think at the time how little he was. It will be the last time we photograph Bubbie with his Giraffe blanket and hat. They are going on a trip to South Dekota. To live with our friend Josiah, and his Mommy Ash.  Josiah was given this same diagnoses. He had surgery to make him all better. We know that he will be chunky in no time.  So we are passing the torch shall we say. This story is even better because Josiah's mommy and daddy used to giggle over a fat giraffe when they dated. I can't wait to watch Josiah grow to be that fat Giraffe, because to some mommies calling their baby fat is music to their ears.
