I have just two things to say about these.
1. Look at that smile! I know I’m his mom and all, but damn is that a cute baby!
2. These pictures may never have existed were it not for newborn screening tests and a team of dedicated physicians. In fact, just under 15 years ago these tests were not mandatory in many states, leading to tragic and unnecessary stories like this one. So Jacob’s one-month “birthday” is also a tribute to the many people who fought for universal screening tests and dedicated their lives to studying rare disorders.
