2: Although he wasn't due to arrive for quite sometime, Jensen just couldn't wait any longer. After being in the maternity ward for 5 days, Rebecca gave birth to him at Maine Medical Center in Portland, ME. Jensen was 6-1/2 weeks early. He stayed in the Neo-Natel Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Maine Medical Center for 4 days and then transferred to the NICU at Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston, ME for further care. This brought him closer to coming home. He finally came home from the hospital on September 13th.
4: Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, and more came to visit. Everyone wanted to meet the little guy...
5: ...but Mommy is the one you wanted to hold you the most..
6: With tiny fingers and tiny toes | We can't wait to watch him grow
7: He looked very much like his mother when he was born but he had his uncle Kyle's cone-head....
8: First Bath October 14, 2010 | Jensen received his first real bath today. He was so tiny that he was too small for a bath in the sink. He had to take a bath in a wash basin from the hospital. His Mamita- Dona (Mita for short) had to give him the bath because his Mommy was afraid to because he was so small.
9: Jensen's first outing was out to the "Egg-ceptional Restaurant" for breakfast with his Uncle Kyle, his girlfriend Brittany, his Mommy, Bumpah (Bill), and Mita. It was a good way to meet Uncle Kyle for the first time as he wasn't able to come home from college when I was born.
10: Happy Halloween Jensen was too little to go trick-or-treating but we couldn't resist dressing him up just the same.. There was no costume more perfect for him to wear then his Uncle Kyle's Dalmation outfit. Kyle wore it for Halloween 23 years ago when he was only 10 days old.

18: As his locks fall to the floor, she sees that he's a baby no more... She scoops them up to hold them near as her eye fills with a tear He looks to her with a big smile upon his face and she wipes her tear as this sweet little boy has taken baby's place
