He’s following his curve perfectly, and catching up!  Developmentally he is testing at his age or above, so he not in any therapies and is an official graduate of the NEST developmental clinic!


At the doctor’s waiting room in Streeterville Pediatrics.


Graduation and final NEST Clinic appointment! His amazing NICU team!

Jonathan had a Choo Choo train Birthday Party on Saturday and had a great time celebrating with friends and family!  He now has more toys than we know what to do with, so we are trying to open them in stages.

Here, let me help you with that!


With his Godfather, Uncle Mike.

He absolutely loves to clean!

On his actual birthday, we had a nice breakfast at YOLK and Jonathan enjoyed his own yummy plate!

Jonathan currently has quite a busy schedule.

Monday – Swimming
Tuesday – Gymnastics
Wednesday – Music
Thursday – FREE day
Friday – Mom Pop Tot (includes play, craft, music and tumbling)

Thank you for following his progress and sending us so much love!


I’m Officially a Newborn!!!


Not only am I a newborn, but I’m skipping this joint! Adventist Hinsdale Hospital it’s been great, but I can’t wait to check out my new room (exhausted Mommy & Daddy above)!  We can’t thank everyone in the NICU enough, but we might have to save that for it’s own blog!

Sorry for the delay in updating the blog, but it’s been an eventful few days! Jonathan came home on Friday, May 1st. He already had his first pediatrician appointment on Monday (May4)and there are a plethora of other appointments already scheduled for follow up.


Freddie has officially been introduced and they are best buddies.  Freddie is on constant guard and Jonathan seems to not even notice him, even when Freddie hands out kisses.


Freddie thinks Jonathan’s lounger is for him too! Ha Ha Ha

Apparently it’s not too early for tummy time!  It’s not his favorite, but he does a pretty good job of it!

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you moms out there!
