Very quick update...


The blurfers are getting this first...because it's easier for me to post here than compose and send an email!

I just got home from the hospital. Our son Jackson Philip Weaver was born Friday night at 8:20pm and weighed 4 pounds 2.5 ounces, 16 inches long. He was only 9 weeks early (compared to his big sister's 13 weeks) and is doing quite well comparatively. We still anticipate he'll be in the hospital for a minimum of 4 weeks, more likely 6-8.

So...I'm taking a brief hiatus here. I will probably have another blog to track Jackson's progress for family and friends, but will only be posting sporadically here as my life just got a heck of a lot busier.

Thanks for all your support!
-Jana

  20. Congrats Jana! He is still a big boy despite being so early! Sometimes (and I know I shouldn't), I wish mine would come early to spare me from the heartburn and rib flare!

  21. Hi Jana and Phil,
    This is Jason Adler's mom. Congratulations on your new baby boy. We were so glad to hear he is over 4 pounds. (Jason's sister Kym was on bedrest for almost 3 months, so we know how important that 4 pound benchmark is.) We will be thinking about you and look forward to hearing that the little guy gets to come home. Melanie
