Happy 5th Birthday Jacob Michael!!

I haven't been real good about my blog lately but this is a celebration worth mentioning. Five years ago tomorrow (Jan. 25th), my little nephew, Jacob was born. With so many babies being born every day, why is this one so special? He is simply a miracle. At birth he weighed 1lb 12oz, and he was 14.7 in long, he was born just before 28 weeks gestation. It was a minute by minute situation, and God was with him every step of the way. I saw pictures first, and cried. Then I saw him in person and nearly cried again. I couldn't believe that something so small and frail could be alive. His little fingers could wrap around your entire pinky finger. His skin was transparent and you could see every little bone in his body. He had tubes in his mouth and nose. It was amazing! There was a beanie baby bear in his crib that was as big as he was. I still cry when I look at the pictures, God is so awesome. Jacob is alive and healthy today because God has a purpose and a plan for his life.

Jacob could care less what it said but he was excited to see the picture of him and Aunt Kim. That was very cute and sweet. I will be posting something tomorrow did I sent you the picture of him in the hospital just in case you still wanted it. Anyways Love you and Jacob says Thank You sort in his own way.
