Sorry if we've been a little MIA the past couple weeks. Our lives have consisted of late nights, little sleep, plenty of poopy diapers and way too many tears, but we're making it through. At least, we hope we are. :)

To let you in on the latest happenings with Jackson... We are currently making weekly trips down to LA Childrens for a procedure called NAM (nasal alveolar molding
). This past Thursday, a molding of Jackson's mouth was taken. This Thursday, he gets fitted with the mold. Every Thursday (for a few months) afterward, this device will be adjusted, helping to bring together Jackson's gums, lip and nasal cavaties prior to his surgeries. This procedure is $4000 and not covered by insurance, but we believe it to be the best possible option for Jackson. Because Daniel is unable to take this much time off for the weekly LA trips, my mom and I are traveling by train once a week. This allows me to take care of Jackson on the way and not have to fight LA traffic with a newborn. And thanks to Aunt Mary Trine, The Great for getting us to and from the Glendale Train station to LA Childrens - you are a tremendous blessing!

We are constantly updating our Flickr site with new pictures so make sure to stop by
