Auntie Trish

D's biggest sister is getting married. They came up to Idaho (not all the way from Scotland. However, that would be really cool if they came just for pictures, all the way from Scotland. But they didn't.) last weekend to document their love in picture form!
Isn't she beautiful?!
I am posting this image because I am fairly confident they will not be using it for their announcement. I don't know about you but it bothers me when I get wedding announcements and I cannot see the people's face! Isn't that what it is about?! Hello.

Respiratory Syncytial Virus is in full swing at the Jack house. We are on day four and hoping she is near the peak. Thank goodness for a doctor who has a very practical outlook on life and makes this new mother feel more comfortable about the whole situation. As crazy as it sounds, the news that it was RSV was actually good news! If it was not RSV it was most likely her just asthma. Trust me you would rather have RSV than asthma. However, her asthma makes the RSV more difficult for her.

We have not been getting much sleep. I am so happy to see smiles

in between episodes of coughing and lots of wheezing. She doesn't always look this pleasant coughing. When I had the camera out she was coughing gracefully.

The "nebby" (our affectionate name for the nebulizer--we are well acquainted) is now also in full swing.

One thing that I find adorable are her little grunts after an episode of serious coughing. She did the same thing before her asthma was under control.

We love Palm Springs.
Green Grass in February. Free dental work. Ritzy. Family. Palm trees. Beautiful weather. Swimming. Good food. Great memories.

I'm tired. Once I get my house and laundry in order I'll update. We had a great vacation last week. Vev and I left D for a week to bake in the sun, while he slaved at the office. Tax season. Every year.
