They nap together.
And they watch ESPN together.
I just thought this was a cute picture -
Jackson also takes after his big brother Knox and sleeps with his tongue sticking out sometimes.

He weighed 6lbs and 11oz at birth and 6lbs 4oz when we left. He still weighed 6lbs 4oz at his check up 2 days after we left the hospital which the nurse said was good. He has his first doctor's appointment next Thursday and I cannot wait to see how much he weighs now because he eats like a champ.
He eats every 3 hours for about an hour which is great for sleeping. He only wakes up every 3 hours at night now. Which I am really excited about. He started sleeping when we figured out he was gassy. The lactation consultant at the hospital told us breast fed babies don't need to be burped, but she didn't know Jackson is half Dickerson. We burp him and give him gas medicine after every feeding and he his a different baby. I am just excited it only took us 5 days to figure it out.
His eyes have turned more blue and he still hates getting his diaper changed. He just does not like being cold so when we strip him down he screams!!! Hopefully he will grow out of that soon.
He keeps his little hand up at his face all the time. He only straightens them out when he stretches which is adorable.
He is so little. The only clothes that fit him are Carter's new born onesies. Everything else is too big, but we make it work.
I know I am bias, but he is the most adorable baby boy in the world! I stare at him even when I should be sleeping.
Happy 1 week birthday Jackson!!!

On another topic Matt started his medicine rotation last week as all this baby craziness started. Bless his heart he has not had a day off yet. He is working as much as he can so he can use his (4 days off a MONTH) days off when the baby gets here. I know he is worn out and worried about me, but it taking it all in stride. It doesn't hurt though that he loves what he is doing now. He is not having to sit in a class all day, but instead gets to go check on patients all day. I think it helps keep him occupied and not worried about his ticking time bomb wife!
Maybe I will have more of a real update later today!

My poor parents left this morning at 8:30 so they were on pins and needles waiting on an update from me when I was waiting in the hospital. Matt's parents are still here until Tuesday and Anna leaves for her summer long mission trip on Tuesday. I was hoping Peanut would come before she left, but he is not sure if he is ready yet.
In other news, my glider came in on Friday! Peanut's room is officially ready. I will get a final picture up soon. I will also keep everyone posted on my progress.
As if that was not enough news Matt is starting in the hospital tomorrow. He is excited to NOT being studying. So we have a lot going on. Being praying for us please.

We put everything in a spot throughout the house in preparation for Peanut. How odd does our den look with baby stuff in it? My parents still have Elle and Knox from the weekend, but when they get home they are NOT going to like these new items one bit. For one the swing is in front of their squirrel look out.Lastly - I think his room is ready for him. Matt laughed when I said that because he thinks it is funny I wanted pictures and curtains hung before I was ready for Peanut to come. The only thing we are missing is the glider/recliner, but it should be in at the earliest tomorrow or at the latest in 2 weeks. It will go in front of the window (I think).
