A WHEEL OF TIME COMMUNITY

This is my lil bean... (picspam)


Recommended Posts

Meet Jakob.  He was 4 weeks old yesterday (born 13.12.19). 

 

When he was born he was 2,415 kg/5.5 lbs and 46,5 cm /18 inches, so a tiny little bean. He wasn't technically premature, since we were already at 38 weeks, but still tiny as a premature baby. That's also why I got induced at 38 weeks, because he wasn't taking enough nutrition on the inside.

 

The first week and a half was probably the most stressful time I've ever had, seeing as we were in the hospital for five days, and everything was about getting him to eat as much as possible, and he kept spitting up everything, so when I got home I also stressed a lot about his eating until he just showed me that he was going to do it his way, and now things have finally settled a bit with his eating. 

 

He's starting to have a bit of a personality now, and he has gained 600grams over the last couple of weeks, that's like 1 1/3lbs. He's still not catching up weight wise, but he's following his own curve. 

 

Anyway, here are some pics... yes, he has a ton of hair.

It was scary to start, and it is scary now when he cries and I don't know why, but at the same time I feel like I'm getting to know him better, so we'll get there together.

It has been a while, hasn't it?

 

Time for an update methinks 😄

 

Jakob is 16 months old now, and he's starting to be really interested in language, which is super fun. 

Here's my tough boy the only time I've been able to make him wear shades.

We found out today that he'll have to start wearing glasses, so that's going to be interesting, given that he already hates wearing shades.

 

In October 2020 we bought and moved into a new house. There's not much to show here, but it's Jakob wearing his winter boots inside.

He's a very happy, cuddly and sweet boy. Here's a pic from today, his first train ride!

And in 4ish months, this charming dude will be a big brother! Here's our camera shy little girl during her first photo shoot:

He is so cute, Sooh. And congrats on the girl on the way.

 

Hope he'll cone to realize that he can "see" better with the glasses on. I've worn glasses since before I was a year old, so I've just sort of adapted them as "part of me".  Good luck.

 

And more pics any time. 😊

Yeah, I'm a little scared at the prospect, but I just have to power through the first couple of years with her as well, and then maaaaybe I'll at least have parts of my night back 😄

 

It has been a while, yeah!

Thank you! Yeah, he's a handful. He's starting to be mischiveous too, and have his mini tantrums. So far it's mostly just funny.

I hope he'll realize that too. I think it might have been easier to have him wear them if we started earlier, like you said before age 1, but we'll see. He might take to them just fine.

Due date is the 30th, but Jakob was two weeks early, so we'll see 🙂 My dad's bday is the 16th, and hubby's bday is the 24th, so there are a lot of good dates in August 😉
