Just 2 Days Difference

 6 days old(Jaundice was peaking)
 Big yawns
 8 days! See the difference in his cheeks:)
My chubby lil guy! Jaundice on the mend, dropped several points!

Jaxxon is growing well and doing great. He did get a decent case of jaundice and we have had him sleeping with a billiruben blanket which obviously did the trick. Within 2 days of using it just at night, his levels dropped several points from 18.9 to 16.2 yesterday. His color is looking better and he is more alert. He is a great eater and I find it so amazing how much he has changed just in 2 days, his lil cheekers are growing by the minute:)

WOW, Janis, he is so cute!! I can't believe how big he is for his gestational age...I'm sure he's getting all kinds of loving from his siblings. Hope you're feeling good, you looked great in your last pictures!

Oh my goodness...you are so blessed. We have seven dear children too and I pray the Lord will bless us with more. We have 2 boys and 5 girls so far. I'm turning 40 this year, but I pray for three more to make an even 10. Your children are adorable and you are doing a fabulous job as a mommy!
