My oh my how time is flying. Things have been so hectic and crazy but not in a bad way persay here that i havent updated here in a bit. Just in case anyone is reading still when i post i will update. Jacob will be 10 months old on Sunday the 9th just three more days. Adjusted he will be 8m. At 9 months he was 15lb 10oz and 28 3/4 in long. But he got a stomach virus that was being passed around and my poor sweet boy was not to happy for a week or so. He lost a little weight and was down to 15lb 2oz, not much to us but to a lil man that is struggling to gain it was a slap in the face to not be able to help him feel better and eat. He is better now, but we are working now on trying to get his decreased appetite back up to normal. He is still not rolling much at all, no crawling, no walking, no sitting up. But im not to terribly worried i dont mind my lil guy being a baby for as long as he wants, maybe i hold him to much, maybe he is "spoiled" but i really dont mind spoiling him if that is what people want to call it, he is my miracle baby and well he deserves to be loved and spoiled as much as he wants. He is such a mama's boy but he is a daddy's boy even more than a mama's boy that is for sure. He has been starting to show signs of stranger anxiety now as well, when grandma came over to watch the kids and him he acted like we were feeding him to an alligator but he warmed up after a bit. Jacob has started to hold his bottle on his own finally though, and man does he look like a cute lil man when he does it. Luckily our guardian angel is still hanging around to, though we miss Jacob's namesake very much we are glad he's around to watch over us. Today while out at the PX we were getting ready to leave the store and daddy was holding Jacob, well he reached into the basket to pick up his PC cap to put on and Jacob wiggled and leaned back and slipped out of his arms. I had just walked up beside him and as he fell he landed right in my arms. Just 30 seconds earlier i was turned around talking to a vendor. Thank you David for watching out for my lil man.
Now for some updated pix, i know you all love to see my lil man growing up.

Something someone made for us.. so true and the longest deployment of all.. id do anything for a one year deployment again
So Jacob Alan David is named after the best and strongest man i ever knew, and he like the rest of us has guardian angel watching over him, i believe David was in that NICU and he is the reason Jacob did so well and is home with us today.. thank you David because just like in life you are still taking care and watching over us in death.. we miss you...

Jacob was taken off his feeding pump today, hes taking most of his feedings by mouth for the whole feed though sometimes he brady's or gets sleep and they are just gavaging the rest now which just means they put it through a syringe tube and let it drain into his belly... getting closer and closer to getting to come home

Jacob was up to 6lb 7oz yesterday so he is growing so fast! We are still just waiting on feeds. He has to take all feeds by bottle for 48 hours before he can go home so far he is taking half of his feeds but not every time then they have to put the rest through his feeding tube.. So as soon as he takes his 1st full feed we will be on the right track!
