April 3

OMG! So many changes to talk about. First off, we apologize that we haven't updated Jackson's blog in a while, we had a couple of crazy weeks with Jackson. Julia decided that the best thing for herself and Jackson would be to go ahead and leave her job and look for something new. She had been with her company for almost 10 years, and where she loved working there, with Jackson her focus needed to change. So we are hoping she will be able to find something new that will work well with her desires to be a very hands on mom. Plus she really needed a bit longer to mentally recover, she went from pregnant to having a baby in 5 weeks, and is still trying to adjust to mommyhood--which she loves. So please keep our family in your prayers as we adjust to these new changes. We know in the end this is what is best for Jackson.

On the Jackson front, he is doing excellent. He is starting to babble and really socialize with us. He is growing well, he is now over 11lbs. He is sleeping through the night, meaning he will go to bed after his 10pm feeding and wake up around 6am. Last night he slept until 8am which was a blessing to all of us. He had to get a big batch of shots, since he is officially 6 months old. This left him a little fussy. He also got another antibody shot for RSV which caused him to develop a cough. Even though it was a little annoying dealing with that, it proved to the doctors that his immune system is working and responding to the vaccines. He has had lots of visitors at house and made his first official restaurant outing. We took him to Torchy's Tacos for lunch with his nurse Jackie and her husband. His Uncle Tommy and Aunt Jaime joined us too. Of course it was a beautiful spring day which made it perfect for being outside. A couple days later, he had another outing to South Austin Torchy's to meet his Uncle Tim. Tim was in town on business and had free time for lunch. We were so happy to see Tim, and to have Jackson meet him! We also had our friends Malcolm and Rachel over with their son Noah. Noah was born about a week after Jackson, so it was kinda nuts to see the two kids next to each other. We are hopeful Jackson will catch up to Noah, and are very excited about Jackson having a buddy in the neighborhood.

His last big event was that he was able to have another visit from Fr. Jonathon. The last time Fr. Jonathon saw Jackson was in December. So he was amazed with our miracle. We are getting more adventurous with Jackson, taking him outside, to a Church picnic and on walks. Getting out of the house is good for all of us and we are enjoying the spring weather in Austin. We are always happy to have healthy visitors, so let us know if you have free time, because we love letting Jackson meet all of his friends and family who have been praying for him during this time.

mmmm Mommy loves Torchys!
