Jackson Ryder

My due date was November 27, so you can imagine our surprise when our baby boy decided he wanted to share a birthday with Dad..

Jackson Ryder was born at 27 weeks on August 28, weighting 2lb 5.6 oz. Words just don’t seem adequate to describe this new found love I have for my sweet boy but he has completely taken over my heart.

Jackson has a long road ahead of him in the NICU but has already started showing his strength and resilience. He is small but he is so mighty.

“Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.” Winnie the Pooh

Love, Jessica
