Celebrating 100 Posts: Jax Style

Can you believe it? This is the 100th post on the blog! What an amazing journey – thank you for hanging in there with us! Thanks for reading and for being a part of our online “family.”  I started this blog as a way to keep our friends and family updated about Jax’s hospital stay…and then it became a place to document his milestones each week, and then it became a place of healing for me…and somewhere along the way, it became a place where other preemie families could come for some hope.

Our humble blog has grown to almost 900 followers. It’s crazy to me that you’re all here. Really, some days, I’m so surprised that you read what I write. It’s your page views and comments that keep me going. I hope you’ll stick around for the next 100 posts, too! I’m guessing that the blog will go through some transformations as time goes on and as Jax gets healthier and healthier. Now that Jax is eating table food, I’d like to  add some posts about our garden, local food, and some of our favorite recipes. What do you think about that? Would you keep reading?

Anyway, thanks. Really. I know I say it alot…but that’s because it’s true: we couldn’t have made it through the last year without all of you.

Jax is celebrating our 100th blog post with the following:

  1. Another severe ear infection (He’s getting tubes on September 23, so hopefully that will help!)
  2. Antibiotics
  3. Two new teeth coming in on the top
  4. 12-month immunization shots
  5. Really awesome diarrhea
  6. A very bad attitude
  7. Refusing to nap (after being up 4 times last night)

Poor kid. Poor mama. Is it too early to start drinking? (Just kidding. Sort of…no really. Just kidding?)

But our little buddy is still completely awesome. Look what he learned how to do today! My favorite part is the little tongue sticking out in concentration. 🙂 Childproofing has reached a whole new level…

Oh man, what an adventure! I went into labor unexpectedly when I was 23w3d pregnant. Jaxson was born weighing 1 lb 8 oz. A tiny little peanut, but boy was he feisty. He still is! We love it now, but we probably won't when he is a teenager. I write about our journey and all other things that come with it, including a brain tumor. We look forward to "meeting" you - come hang out with us...we're pretty cool.

  1. Jax is getting so grown up!!! Congratulations on hitting the 100 posts mark. I love reading your posts. Michael had tubes too. Hard for mamma but babies don’t remember it. Love to go for a walk again soon! Let me know when Jax is feeling better. 🙂


  2. Wow happy 100th post! Sorry about the ear infection… I am totally scared Xander will have one since I had double ear infections a lot when I was little but we are always in the clear when we take him in. Hopefully those tubes will help… can’t come fast enought as we’re headed into the dreaded RSV season. I think you should write whatever you want to write about!


    1. Poor Jax has a constant ear infection. 😦 I think the tubes will help alot! They say they should also help with language development, since Jax has some hearing loss from the fluid build up. Are you keeping Xander in daycare over the winter? Our doc gave us a less restrictive “lock-down” season: Dec – March. I’m going to see what the pulmonologist says about that. No matter how long it is, the walls are going to cave in on us!!


  3. I look forward to your posts as if I were reading the most fantastic novel. Your writing and Jaxson’s trials and tribulations are documented so beautifully. Please never ever quit. I am wondering who is the President of the Jax Mully Fan Club? If there isn’t one, pick me, pick me.
    Love that kid!!!!!


  4. I think this deserves chocolate! How exciting to reach a milestone for yourself, too bad Jax is helping celebrate by being ill. I think adjusting the blog to add some of your interests in a great idea, Jax is still a large part of it. Childproofing is fun, (especially when even the grownups can’t get into items :). Jaxson is so adorable and looks very very determined with his little tongue out, maybe it gives the kids more leverage. I cant wait to see what the next 100 posts bring. Thanks for continuing to share 🙂
