More Milestones

Jack taking his first bottle





Today Jack passed his hearing test.

We also met with the speech therapist a couple of times and she helped us figure out what type of nipple he prefers on his bottle and the best consistency to make the milk to keep him from gulping down too much at a time which he seems to have a tendancy to do.

Jack's grandma also came up and rocked him for a while so mom could go home for an hour and take a real shower. That was particularly nice.

The downside of all Jack's good eating is that it makes him SO tired and he's slept a ton, so I'm afraid he might be a little perky tonight. It could be a long one.
We are still tentatively on track to come home Saturday.

I've been away from the computer for a couple of days and came home to see Jack has made awesome progress. Yay. We went school shopping on Tuesday and Seth came up to me with a cute outfit and asked if we could get it for Jack Jack! At first I couldn't figure out who he was talking about since we have a friend with a 1 year old named Jack who they call Jack Jack (from The Incredibles) and then it finally hit me "Oh, Jack!" So the kids picked some cute clothes we will send for his welcome home present :)
