Big News

Well we have finally heard the big news down here in Pensacola. Back in the spring Steve applied to change aircraft and today we found out that he was accepted. We are very excited about this. It is a very competitive to get a cross flow to another aircraft and he did it. He is going to be flying KC-135. I am going to have to get Jackson a shirt that says "My Dad passes gas" :) So we are still not sure as to where we are moving or when but at least we know our options. I am looking forward to the new places that we will go and all of the great people we will meet along the way.

On personal notes we didn't get anything from Tropical Storm Fay and we are watching Gustav closely right now. We will keep everyone posted and we may be knocking on a few doors for a place to stay if we have to leave here. Here is Jackson in his first Tropical Storm.
Jackson is doing much better and is only suffering from a runny nose right now. Which I am sure that if he could talk he would talk tell you that I man handle him every time I have to wipe his little nose. I feel bad because every time he sees me coming with a Kleenex he is already swatting me off.

My Poor Baby

Well it is confirmed! After a VERY early appointment this morning at 7:10 Jackson is another victim of Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease. To make matters worse and to make him feel so bad he has a right ear infection and an eye infection. The poor kiddo is drooling like a mad man because he has all of the horrible blisters in his mouth and throat, his eyes are watering and his nose is running. Although I am very sorry that he is sick he turns into a little snuggler when he is not feeling good. And for any of you out there that do not have a snugly child know that you will take what you can get. I just love when he reach out to me like I am the only thing that could possibly make him feel better. He will just lay his head down on my shoulder or chest and just lay so still. Which is also very uncharacteristic for him right now because he is EVERYWHERE!!!

So to Jackson I say, "I am sorry you are so sick I wish I could make you feel better but thank you so much for all of the hugs and snuggles."

Curse You Day Care

Jackson has not even been in day care for one week and already has the infamous Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease. Apparently a child in his class had it the day before we started there. This crazy virus that has a six day incubation period and guess what?? This is the sixth day since Jackson started there. I noticed the lovely red bumps on the palms of his hand AFTER I picked him up this afternoon. I feel sorry for all the other kiddos in the class because the teachers there did not even notice it. We now have an appointment tomorrow morning with our fabulous doctor. I feel so bad for Jackson this causes blisters into your mouth and throat and this cry is so horse and weak. He is not sleeping well which guessed it we are not sleeping well.

I am in my first week of student teaching which is why Jackson has to go to the dreaded disease infested day care. The class seams AWESOME and I think that I am going to learn a lot of the teacher that I am working with. I would love it if we were going to be living here after graduation and to be able to get a job at this intermediate school. All of the teachers seems great and the Principal is fantastic.

Tall and Skinny

Well we had Jackson's 9 month appointment today we he is now weighing in at 20.14 lbs and is 30 inches long. So that means that he is in the 45% in weight, the 95% in height and because of his large head he is in the 95% in head also. Crazy kiddo. We were just glad to walk out of there with no shots. Lots of snuggles from the doctor and all of the nurses.

Field Trip

This afternoon Estee and I headed to Creastview to shop at a quilt shop that we found. They were having a sale on Christmas material and I needed to add to my stash. I also had high hopes that I would be able to find insiration for a Christmas wall hanging but had no luck today. I have a feeling that I am going to have to venture out of my comfort zone and try a different type of quilt. I haven't even finish my first quilt but I already have a lot of projects on the mind. I got a great book while at my Moms and it has a bunch of great patterns for household projects. I would like to make some Christmas pillows for the living room and some place mats and napkins. I figure that way I can get what I want possibly save a bit of money by making it myself. I was very excited that Steve was able to make it home before we headed out so that I could go in peace and quite without Jackson.

I can't believe that Jackson is eight and a half months already. He is already such a great little man with a huge personality. He loves everyone and loves their attention. He has been doing great with physical therapy. The rotation in his neck has gotten so much better than it was. He only have to go to PT once every two weeks now because he is doing so well. They want to keep an eye on his Tortacollis until he starts walking. I guess it can regress back with a change of movement and the way that he holds his head. I am just hoping that any babies that come later will not have the same problem and that they will be smaller so that they have more room to move around while they are inside.
