2 weeks!!!

Mia is 2 weeks old!! She ha several hours now of awake and alertness usually in the morning after she wakes up around 8:30 am.. She loves her big brother and will just watch him as he says, " hi baby girl" or "oh baby Mia..honey.. what's wrong." He is so sweet and watchful of her. He hates to hear her cry and will do anything to comfort her. He walked over and picked her up out of the pack and play..we had her in the elevated part of the pack and play...and carried her over to his red chair because she just didn't want to be in there anymore...while I walked up stairs to get the camera. Having two is an adjustment but we are working through it. I am blessed to have such a supportive involved husband. He will wake up with them on the weekend and let me sleep while making breakfast. I do very much love him and my family!

Beautiful Baby Mia is here!

We are so happy to have added such a sweet baby to the Jackson family! She was born August 14th at 8:17am! She weighed 7lb 11oz and was 20 3/4 inches long! PERFECT! We are adjusting to life of a family of 4 but have enjoyed having so much help from our families! Eli adores his sister and loves holding her and is amazed by her little toes and fingers! He has even shared his "green bubik" with her and anyone who knows Eli knows how special that is to him!!!! Here is a video of the first time Eli met Mia! So sweet!
