2: I was born on December 16, 2009. I weighed 8 lbs. 6 oz and was 22.5 inches long. Mom went into the hospital on Tues. morning, but I wasn't in a hurry to be born so I waited until 12:36 Wednesday to make my grand appearance. It was very exciting. Mom was so hungry after I was born that Grandpa Jackson had to go get her McDonald's and the nurses gave her all the Coke she wanted to drink. Dad even snuck her a snickers during labor. The first few days were buys and I had lots of visitors. After a few days in the hospital it was time to go see my house for the first time. | Perfect

6: One Month Old | I slept a lot, just not always at night and still managed to keep Mom busy by nursing every two hours. At 18 days I had gained almost a whole pound since birth. The doctor said that was "excellent". I never got sick even though it was cold out.
