My daughter, Emily and her husband Thomas, welcomed little Parker Jackson into the world on January 31. He weighed 8 lbs 1 oz and was 19 inches long. He was delivered by C-section due to his mom having a condition called placenta previa, which could be life threatening to the mother if she had gone into labor. I have to say for being three weeks early, he was a pretty good size baby.
He scratched himself on the face on his first day in the world, so now he has to wear gloves or closed end sleeves to prevent it happening again. This scar is still there after a week!
Aw, he is such a sweetie pie, and smells so sweet. At least for now! The little fella is having a hard time eating, so he lost over half a pound in the hospital, but I’m sure he will catch on and start gaining soon.
Mommy had to take all his clothes off and get him uncomfortable before he would eat. I told her I can see it now, he’ll be three years old and can’t eat unless he’s naked! Seriously, he finally did take 2 ounces of milk while we were there. And then he spit up on Granny’s shirt while she was burping him. Burp!
The only time he cried was while he was getting a diaper change. He did not like that AT ALL! He didn’t open his eyes enough to see what color they are. He looks a lot like his Mommy did when she was a baby.
“Mom!” Don’t take my picture! I look terrible”. No, you look like you just had a baby, and that, my dear, is beautiful.
