Getting SO BIG!

Jackson had his 12 month well visit today so we could get his stats!  Drum roll please!

Weight: 25 lbs, 2 oz (80th %)
Height: 33" (95th%)
Head Circumference: 19" (90th%)

He is now completely off bottles and off formula!! Can you hear the angels singing?? He is now on just whole milk and table food.  He is such a great eater and is growing like a weed.  He can't seem to break the 5-6 step mark and actually walk, but that's ok.  All in due time! Speaking of food...here is Jackson enjoying some grilled asparagus! YUMMO!


Pumpkin Fun

Jackson is enjoying this fall weather and his new pumpkin & mum!


Big Boy Jack is 1 YEAR OLD!

Can't believe a year ago I was holding my little baby in the hospital so completely unaware of how much my life would change and how much joy our little guy was going to bring into our lives.  Jackson has been such a blessing.  An "easy" baby as some would say.  He lights up a room with his smiles, giggles & antics.

On his birthday Jackson got an early morning phone call from Grampie complete with the Happy Birthday song! Then, he got to Skype with Grammie while he started his breakfast.  Next, he got some Skype time with DADDY!!!  Daddy is out in San Diego this week but went and bought a camera for his computer just so he could see the little man on his birthday.  Here are a few pics from the morning

After breakfast Jackson took a mini nap before we headed out to Lindsay Lyons Park to play with friends.  Jackson actually enjoyed the swings today and from the very beginning!!  He LOVES being outside and I think he would've just stayed in his stroller the whole time with the breeze in his hair if I would've let him!

 even if he isn't walking...he still finds a way to KEEP UP!

Dear Jackson,
 I hope you had a GREAT birthday with Mommy!  I sure had fun hanging out with my ONE YEAR OLD!  We are going to have so much fun together this next year of your life!! I can't wait!  But no worries, even if you don't remember it...I'll be taking pictures!



Jackson's BDay Celebration

We are so blessed to have amazing people in Jackson's life.  Grammie & Grampie came in from Florida and then Uncle Brian drove down from St. Louis to be with us to celebration his weekend fun.  Friday we opened some gifts for the little guy and then went out to dinner at HB Steakhouse where we had a lot of fun!

Saturday we had a small birthday party for Jackson with a few close friends.  It was western theme (but of course!) It went off without a hitch and I think everyone had a great time.  The little ones all got bandannas to wear and Jackson was wearing a bandanna print tie that I made him!  Here are a few a lot of pictures!
