Jack was officially diagnosed with asthma yesterday. Poor guy. He's had a cold for about a week and the runny nose and coughing became full on wheezing on Sunday night. I took him to the doctor first thing yesterday morning and Dr. Raine gave us the news. With all the bouts of bronchiolitis he's had in the past year (5, I believe) he said we couldn't put off the asthma diagnosis any longer. Soooo, Jackster's on an antibiotic for an ear infection and oral steroids and nebulizer treatments (again, oh joy) for his asthma. Please pray that he gets better soon and that his lungs stay healthy once he heals from this cold.

of a white(ish) Thanksgiving! Ahhh, Texas weather. Seventy-five degrees on Thanksgiving Eve and SNOWING on Thanksgiving Day! Craziness! We headed out to Willow Park to spend the day at Gigi and Pappaw's house where Aunt Emmy and Uncle Bryan joined us. The food was yummy, the company was great, the football was mildly entertaining (even though the Cowboys won, the game was a yawn) and Jack had a great time. Jason even took Jack outside for a bit and his getup was a bit reminiscent of Ralphie's little brother in the movie A Christmas Story.
My mom's such a great grandma. She is so creative with Jack and thinks to do things that my feeble mind wouldn't have imagined! Not to mention that she can still easily get to the floor and I, in all my pregnant glory can't. Yaya made a train out of Jack's boxes (we normally use them to build towers) and he LOVED it!
Our good friends, Terry and Erin have the most precious little girl, Selah. She and Jack are big buddies and just love to play together. I kept Selah for a couple of days several weeks ago and took some really cute shots of her and Jack together. I'm just now getting around to posting them... go figure.

the best friends ever! My old college girlfriends threw me an impromptu shower yesterday evening and it was great! We had so much fun getting together with the husbands and kiddos and enjoying dinner together. We were kept busy with all our little guys running (or being passed) around and our big guys drawing interesting pictures on the paper tablecloth. They made sure we were loaded up with plenty of diapers and pink and purple goodies. Thanks gals! I love y'all!
The big boys and the little boys!

Well, we got Jackster all dressed up in his zebra costume and headed out to Festival 31 at church last night. Really, there wasn't too terribly much for Jack to participate in as the bounce houses were overrun with big kids and the games were just a bit too advanced for a kiddo of Jack's age. So, we just walked around with the Courseys and their cute little goldfish, Selah. Actually, Jason and Terry spent the majority of the evening chasing down said zebra and goldfish as they were happily entertaining themselves just running through the crowd of people at full tilt! And now, for some pics...
