A Short Break

I'm feeling it in my bones that I need a short blog break.

I have been blogging five days a week for over a year now. Its been fun, challenging, and worth it. I love telling you about our boy and advocating for the micropreemie community. I've always said that blogging is the cheapest form of therapy and I still believe that. But my most favorite part of blogging has been getting to know you, our readers. Reading your comments and hearing your stories has, most definitely, been the highlight. With the rate of Life with Jack's growth, which has been phenomenal!, I just need to take some time to think about where I want to take this.

Realistically, I need to decide how much time I can devote to this and still keep the content great. When I come back, I may have a new blogging schedule... who knows. But just know I am not leaving for good. Only a few days off which will coincide nicely with labor day weekend.

I will be back next week!
Pin It!

I love that Life with Jack is apart of my daily routine but understand the need for a break. Since Ben and Scarlett were born almost a year ago, I have found a lot of comfort in your honest and real post. Believe me. On some of my roughest days and in some of my deepest fears - I think of you and it helps me feel like I'm not alone in this journey.

Have a great Labor Day... And happy Birthday too!

PS - I've literally talked to the iPad lately when I see how big jack is getting! He has come so far and I've sure enjoyed seeing all his accomplishments and strides he has made.

Enjoy your break you deserve it. I am Grandma to a 23 weeker, she will be 18 months in September and to see how far she has come is truly amazing. Thank you for sharing your story with us it gave me so much hope and inspiration as we started our micro preemie journey.

I have just recently found your blog. I am grandmother to a 24week 3 days gestational age boy who is 6 1/2 years old. Your Jack has so many similarities to my Andrew. The way they hold their left hand, the brace on the left foot. Andrew had a bleed in the right side of his brain grade 4, PDA surgery at 2 weeks old and hernia surgery at 4 months. Andrew is doing quite well and he brings a lot of joy to us all. He is very smart and LOVES tractors and fire engines and parades!!! Blessings to your family as you travel this incredible journey!!!
