Catching Up

Well, I have been having too much fun playing with my baby to sit down and update my blog. He's down for a nap now and I decided I should probably sit down and do a bit of updating before we get into all of our Christmas celebrations and I just get even further behind.

Sweet Baby Jack will be SIX months old on Sunday--I can hardly believe it! The time has flown by, and we love having this sweet boy here with us. He is the light of our life.

Jackson's favorite things include:
-Sitting in his high chair and eating new food--he has yet to not like a big boy food
-Playing on his tummy
-Playing with Mommy's face and "bonking" her nose
-Learning how to sit up
-Splashing in the tub
-Babbling at us
-Playing with his toys
-Dancing while Mommy plays the piano
-Trying to figure out how to move
-Playing with his toes
-Sucking his thumb--especially if it is covered with the sleeve of his shirt
-Reading stories
-Looking at the lights

Jeff just finished another semester at the U--only one more to go!! Graduation is just 4 1/2 months away! He is busy as the Ward Clerk. His favorite thing to do when he gets home from work/school is to head straight for his boy and get down and play with him.

I am loving life as a Mommy. Things don't always get done around the house, but I have a happy son, and in the end, that is what is really important. I am looking forward to hosting Christmas this year (We'll be with the Ponds on Christmas Eve and will visit on Christmas Day, but my family is coming here for Christmas Day so we can talk to my two missionary siblings!)

We took Jackson to get a picture with Santa, and Mommy and Daddy got to join in too

Just checking to make sure Mommy and Daddy are still here

Not too sure about those sweet potatoes the first time he tried them

Grandma and Grandpa have a jumper and Jackson loves it!
