We're back!

Sorry it has been so long... 3 months to be more exact! Sheesh. Sometimes life just gets the better of me. And with so much going on, tons of things that I'm sorting through, I just haven't had the energy or focus to write about our life as of late.

So many changes... The best news is that Jackson got his G-tube removed today! Yay! This has been a long time coming. He's finally drinking on his own and loving it! We put Daniel on a flight to California then headed over to the surgery center at 9 a.m. this morning. The doctor took it out, put an enormous bandage on it and gave us a follow-up appointment for October 29th. I guess they give it some time to see if the hole will heal up on its own prior to repairing it surgically. So we'll see how it goes. Supposedly, it'll leak a lot for the first couple days then gradually get better. We're just so happy to be done with this season and ready to move on to new things.

Daniel will be in San Luis Obispo for the next 12 days, playing lots of shows and celebrating the wedding of one of our good friends! Congrats Tim and Annie!

I'll be here with my boy. News on my end is that I just took a part-time job working for West Elm in downtown Austin. It's been a lot of fun so far and I'm making some good friends! It's been good for me to get out and we could really use the bit of extra cash flow, if you know what I mean.

Jackson just gets more and more fun... He has the biggest appetite that I've ever seen in a kid his age! For example, one morning he ate two pancakes, a half banana, handful of blueberries, a kolache and a cup of milk. Goodness. He most definitely eats more than me! He constantly has a couple cars in his hands and drives them all over our house. He is still extremely social! He just can't get enough of people. But he's also VERY independent and focused. I am loving seeing more and more of his personality. He is such a happy kid... always has a smile on his face! I just adore him.

As far as me, I've been on quite a journey the past few months. I can talk about that more later, but I am making some good and necessary changes. Jackson and I will be in California to visit from November 3-10. I'm looking forward to catching up with some familiar faces and spending time in some of my favorite coastal spots.

Our camera is still out of commission, so hopefully we'll have some pics to post soon! Till then...
