The First 2 Months: Recap

Ok, so this "mom" thing totally takes some getting used to. I have taken a little hiatus from blogging, as you can see, to fully embrace my new found title and figure out what the heck this new life will be like. I have a new found respect for all you moms out there. This is by far the most important and difficult job I will ever accept. 

Dear Jackson,
You are now 2 months old! Where did the time go? The past 8 weeks have been pure joy  - despite those sleepless nights. You may have started your first week of life in the NICU at the hospital, but that didn't stop you from capturing the heart of your mommy and daddy from the first second we met you - even with scary heart monitors and IV lines. You are a happy and healthy little boy weighting close to 12 lbs now. In the last 3 weeks you have started smiling which literally makes my heart skip a beat. I hope you never lose that little twinkle in your eyes when you smile. I cherish this time we have together because I know I will blink and you will be going off to pre-school and I will be that crazy mom crying as I drop you off. I know this to be the case because today I dropped you off at daycare for the first time, and my heart literally broke into a million pieces. Like Kelly Clarkson sings, "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger". Our time apart will only make our time together much more magical. I love you more than words could ever describe.
Your mommy
