When Jackson started speaking, he couldn't say Sara. So he called her Aha instead. I don't know where he got Aha from Sara, but I love it. Jackson is now almost 6 and still calls her Aha.
Aha holds a very special place in my family's hearts and now she's about to have her 3rd baby! We were pregnant together for the past 8 months or so with our due dates only 2 weeks apart. It's been a lot of fun being pregnant together...sharing our aches and pains and waddling together. But of course, Baby Landon decided to come 3 weeks early. I hope our boys are going to best friends!
I can't believe that I was blessed with 2 perfect and easy babies! I didn't get to nurse Jackson for very long because he never did latch on right but other than that, he never cried unless he was hungry, and he was sleeping through the night at 6 weeks. Landon on the other hand, has been so easy to nurse and I have not had to suppliment with any formula. He only wakes up twice during the night, and he too only cries when he's hungry. Crazy huh?
Baby Landon was born on Saturday March 26th, we were discharged on March 27th and we were home for a whole day before we were sent back to the hospital. When we were discharged, his bilirubin level was a little high, but not high enough to be concerned. We took him back on the 28th for another blood test and found out that the levels shot up to 20 so off to the NICU we go....we were pretty scared, and nervous, didn't know what to expect. I had to stay overnight with him while Ryan went home to be with Jackson. I can't even imagine what it was like for Ryan to have to leave us there...i'm sure he was torn. But we knew Jackson needed us too. Poor Jackson was so worried about his new brother he cried when we left :)
But Landon was such a little trooper! He slept under the photo therapy lights without a peep, only waking to nurse. And after a night at the hospital, he was well enough to go home....
I'm a mom and a wife who loves to play with a camera...how can life be any better?
