Busy Week

The Jackson family has had a very busy week...sorry I haven't had time to blog.

Last Wednesday Katy McIlhargey and her two month old son, Jackson (isn't that the greatest name), came over for lunch. Well, actually they picked up In-n-Out on the way over. It was so nice to spend some time with another mother who is in the "thick of things". We had a wonderful time, but of course I forgot to take my camera out and snap any pictures of the two boys.

On Friday, Noah and I headed over for a fantastic lunch with Mary Akina and her 22 month old daughter Lizzie. Lizzie was quite fascinated by Noah and LOVED to pet his head and share her toys with him. Notice all the toys she has placed next to him in his bouncer.Lizzie was so very gentle and Noah was quite fascinated with how quickly she moved around him while he was lounging.

Later that afternoon, Susan and Diane stopped by the condo. I have known these ladies since junior high and it was so nice to connect again. Diane's husband, Jeff, was kind enough to take our picture and listen patiently to all of our gabbing.

On Saturday, Kc and I had a wedding to attend so Nana and Papa watched Noah. After the touching wedding ceremony - congratulations Katie & Pete Torstensen - we headed over to the Memorial Building for an elegant reception. Soon after we had finished dinner, Nana called us to let us know that Noah was "very unhappy". He had been a bit crabby that day and was coughing a bit, but it had gotten dramatically worse. Kc and I left the reception as quickly as we could, we didn't even get to dance, and ran into the arms of our crying little man. With a quick call to the pediatrician, it was determined that Noah had pneumonia...for the third time. He was quickly put on antibiotics but after four very uncomfortable days, we headed to the doctor's office yesterday for a chest x-ray. Noah is now on a different antibiotic and we hope it is "the one". He is definitely a trooper and manages to smile through this whole ordeal. Sleeping is the hardest, for both Noah and his parents. He coughs while sleeping and then wakes himself up. It takes a lot to get him quieted down and back to sleep but then he coughs again and the cycle starts all over. He's taking a nap right now and has been down for a little over an hour...Yeah! His little body needs as much rest as possible.

  1. Goodness...talk about ups and downs. And... all of you trooping through it all (it's good to have the "ups" to help with the "downs").

    It's so fun to see Noah interacting with SO many people; I think he will definately be a people-person.

    I pray that the current antibiotic is "the one" and that Noah is healthy again soon. I have a feeling that Noah's little body isn't the only one that needs some much-needed rest. Let me know if I can help with anything...errands, laundry, lunch, ANYTHING. Take care.
