Jakob was born two months earlier than expected. Although premature he displayed many characteristics of an older baby. Not only did he breath on his own, he was also able to bottle feed a lot sooner than expected. The nurses called him the “amazing baby” who “acted mature for his age”. Jakob spent the first month of his life in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) where the parents went to visit him every day at the hospital.
Jakob is now over three months old and every day I am awed by his strength and resilience. He loves to smile and snuggles for hours. He truly is amazing and his entire family loves him and cheers him on.
