But Jordan's parents and doctor say his outlook remains guarded, despite his progress.

Jordan was born to 20-year-old Aimee Aguilar of Detroit Lakes, Minn., after she was involved in a crash on May 3. The newborn was airlifted to Fargo's MeritCare Hospital, where he was initially listed in critical condition.

Parents Joe and Aimee Aguilar say they're grateful for the prayers the family has received. Amy Aguilar credits them with keeping her son alive.

The doctor in the case says it's still not known what type of brain function Jordan will have, and says the child is at a high risk for problems such as cerebral palsy.
