Happy 8 Weeks

Happy 8 weeks Jimmie! I realized that his 2 month birthday is Saturday. (not today) Duh . . .(-:

So Jimmie's eye exam today was pointless. The Doctor said after dilating his eyes and doing the exam that Jimmie's eyes were still too premature to see if he has ROP. So he will have this done again in a couple of weeks. Ugh! Kind of a bummer. They always try at the earliest possible time because if there were a big problem with ROP the earlier you catch it and act on it the better the outcome. We'll hopefully have news about Jimmie's eyes in a couple of weeks. Keep praying eye prayers!

Rachael kept noticing Jimmie was acting like he was too hot yesterday in his isolette. Her Mommy's intuition was that he just needed the temperature setting turned down a bit. And sure enough today after they've adjusted the temp settings he's been acting much more comfortable! Mommy knows best. (-:

Jimmie lost 6 grams today. )-: Come on Jimmie you gotta keep chunking it up little man!

Here are some more pictures from Sunday.

Ewww what's that nasty smell? Oh that would be me- filling my diaper.

Why does Auntie Amber talk so loud and flash that light in my eyes?

I'm puffing my cheeks out so I can drive Auntie Amber mad with temptation to kiss them!

I love sleeping in my Mommy's lap!

  4. How cute and sweet! You can't help but wonder if being too hot contributed to him losing some of that weight. Poor little guy. =(

  6. Rachael & Justin CONGRADUALTIONS once again. I am so happy to see the progress that your Little Jimmie has made. "He is a total ham" This just confirms that God is always at work for those who trust in him. I agree that Jimmie's progress is nothing short of a miracle and confirms that when you have faith the size of a mustard seed it can truly move mountians.
