Day 1 : What age do you miss the most?

Jack is going to be 7 months old on the 8th of this month. Its scary. He's growing so fast. He's almost crawling. He's almost saying mama (AAAAAAHHHHHHHma!)

If I could go back to any age I think it would be that first week we brought him home. It was the safety of it. He spent 5 days in the NICU after an emergency c-section. I remember thinking if we could just get him home it would all be okay, and it was.

That's my baby, and that's his Daddy's thumb. He was born at 36 weeks, and was so tiny. When he was born he wasn't breathing. It was scary. It all was so scary.

This is me holding him on his first day home from the hospital. He was so tiny he fit in the palm of my hand. He wore preemie clothes for about 2 weeks. I put them all away yesterday and I cried like a girl because he was so tiny. He's orange because he had awful jaundice on top of everything else. He was so perfectly snuggly, and I just sat for hours holding him and sniffing his little head. It was the first time I let myself relax enough to enjoy being his mom. I stopped being so worried and was able to be happy.

This is Jack now. He's so big and strong and independent and stubborn. He's perfect.
