And So He Grows

Wee Jack now weighs 3 lbs., 3 oz.

From this

To this

Almost two handfuls!  And Megan and Drew now get to hold him for 30 minutes twice a day!

Yesterday was the baby shower, and of course, I left my camera on the table again, so I will have to hijack pictures from Amelia.  Wee Jack will be in sartorial splendor when he gets big enough to wear newborn clothes, and boy, the clothes for little boys are so much cuter now.

Work on the boro jacket continues.

I really need to get back to the white on white project, but for some reason, when I go upstairs, I pick up this to work on.  At least I am working again.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!


  1. What a cutey.........its heartbreaking to see them so small and vulnerable isnt it. But many congrats to you all.
    Fab jacket idea.....smashing!

  2. liniecat - He is a fighter; his grandmother is so proud of the way he moves around and bats at the hands that try to adjust his tubes, even when they are being removed so he can be held. An independent spirit already!

    I'm enjoying working on the is a kind of mindless but soothing process to choose the scraps and sew them down. Thanks for the nice comment!

  3. So glad that Wee Jack is improving and getting some loving cuddles.
    Your jacket will be beautiful! Are you making a wee one, too?

  4. Suz - For such a little fellow, Jack has shown such great spirit! He is a precious gift to his mom and dad.

    It wouldn't take much fabric to make his a jacket-- :) His great grandmother used a doll pattern to make him a little heirloom outfit with tiny tucks.

  5. O my goodness, what a tiny little life. I hope he thrives.

  6. Jack be little
    Jack be strong
    Jack keep fightin'
    All day long!

    Blessings for this tiny-but-spirit-filled boy!

    Love the blues

  7. Nancy - :) Love your rhyme, Nancy! So true of this little fellow!

  8. Rian - He has gone from 1.1 lbs. to 3.1 in six weeks! He is a determined little guy!

  9. That is one teeny tiny babe! Here's hoping he keeps growing stronger and stronger!


Good to hear from you!
