4 Months Old

28 Apr

Jobee is four months old today.
It feels like just yesterday that I was on bedrest pining away on how our lives would change when she arrived… not to mention almost 7 weeks early.

Jobee has come so far since her days in the NICU.

(Pictures taken by Kasey VanderTol, edited by me.)

From wires, tubes, and IVs….

To smiles, coos, and even the first hints of giggles!

From being so tired that she’d sleep through most of her feedings…

to waking up every 2 hours to eat and definitely KNOWING when it’s time…

From a head the size of an orange and drowning in preemie clothes and diapers….

to a massive double chin, newborn clothes getting just a little too tight, and size 2 diapers!

From having to depend on nurses to take care of her while her momma fails miserably at trying to sleep and enjoy her other children because of worry…

to being worn nearly 24 hours a day and always being with in arms reach of her momma.

From being nearly completely unaware of anything going on around her…

to being alert and showing signs of a very bubbly, fun personality that always wants to be part of what’s going on.

It’s no secret that I was worried sick over how I was going to be able to handle four kids, let alone a preemie with food allergies and blood in her diaper deposits!
But, I am so pleased that we’re doing more than fine, adjusting beautifully, and honestly wouldn’t be half as happy with out our little Jobers in our lives.

Thank you so much Kasey for taking these pictures of Jobee and I in her first days of life. I never want to forget them.
