Jean, the precious little princess. She is a very dainty, gentle and gracious little baby. She has everyone wrapped around her little finger from the start; there is just something about her. When you are holding Jean she loves to snuggle her head right into your chest and neck; so cuddly. Good thing she will have two big brothers to take care of her through life.
Jean was born a healthy 3 lb baby girl only 2 minutes after her brother was born.
She never required anything to assist in her breathing, her lungs were developed enough for her to breathe on her own. Because she was too premature to suck and swallow, she was fed via a tube that went in her mouth down to her stomach. Jean stayed in an incubator for a few days longer than her brother Brian because she did have some digestive issues. Once she was feeding on breast milk via the breast and bottle, she had a tendency to spit up much of what she drank.
Once out of the hospital she was amazingly resilient as a premature baby.
Her big brothers Taylor and Brian contracted cold after cold virus and Jean just never got sick. It was quite amazing because she was definitely exposed to all the viruses. She did still have issues with digesting breast milk and suffered from acid reflux for a while. Her pediatrician prescribed some medication which helped and eventually she matured out of it. Besides the acid reflux, Jean’s health and development has been excellent. She is the one who crawled first and is just about ready to be the first one to walk compared to her brother Brian.
Jean is very petite compared to her brother.
Many people ask if they are twins and then comment on how much bigger Brian is. They definitely have opposite builds. Brian is very big in stature and has a head almost twice the size of Jeans. Although Jean is very petite, they are similar in length and both are very tall for their age. Everyone wants to hold Jean so she is accustomed to being picked up quite regularly. This along with her personality is revealing a very particular little girl. She fusses much more readily compared to both her brothers. She’s so dainty and sweet that it’s difficult to not give her what she wants, when she wants it.
Although she is particular, she has the sweetest smile and a charming disposition. I look forward to the mother daughter bond that we will share in our lifetime.
