Wednesday Loves and Pins

♥ Today I'm loving this little video I took of Jackson last night. He loves Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and gets so excited when the Hot Dog Dance comes on at the end of every show. He just kicks his feet and moves his arms! Its so cute!

♥ I'm loving this beautiful weather we're having here in St. Louis! The high for today is 64 degrees!

♥ I'm loving that I get to pick up Jackson's 3 month pictures this Saturday. I can't wait to see them.

♥ I'm loving this line of whale stuff that I got for Jackson at Carters over the weekend.

♥ And as always, I'm loving my wonderful family!


Love everything about this.
 Super cute diaper bag for your stroller! How clever.

Smore cookies = Yum!!

Such a cute idea for a planter outside.

Coconut Chicken. Sounds yummy.

Love the aqua and red. Thinking about using these colors for my living room.

Super cute picnic bench for your bedroom.

Great idea for a toss pillow.

Our Weekend

Our weekend was busy, but fun!

Friday night we just hung out at home. Jake made dinner and I got caught up on a couple of my shows I had DVR'd. I also watched "I Don't Know How She Does It", which ended up being pretty good.

Saturday I went shopping with Jackson and my Mother In Law. We went to Carters and loaded Jackson up on lots and lots of cute clothes. We also got him his Easter Outfit. Complete with matching shoes, hat and bibs! He's going to look so cute! I think the whole store was on sale! :-) Here's a picture of the pile of clothes we got him.

And here's his Easter Outfit, Hat, Bibs and Shoes to match!

Then Sunday we went to church, then went to a birthday party for our friend's 3 year old! It was robot themed and very cute! Holly did a great job as always.

Then after the party, Jake and I took Jackson and our dog Max for a nice long walk along the trail at Sunset Park. Our street dead ends into this park. The park and trail overlook the Missouri River. Its beautiful and the weather was perfect! It was Jackson's first time going for a walk outside. He was so relaxed. He even fell asleep towards the end.

I was off work today and I've just been cleaning and spending time with my sweet boy. It was a great weekend! As always I'm sad to see it end. Hope you all had a great weekend too!

Jackson is 18 Weeks Old!

Jackson is 18 weeks old and getting so big. He's sleeping in his crib now all night, only waking up once to eat. After he eats, he always goes right back to sleep in his crib. I lay him down in his crib (awake) and within a minute or two he's right back to sleep. He's such a good boy when it comes to sleeping. He usually goes to sleep between 8 and 9. This sleeping schedule is working out great for us. ☺

He's been spitting up quite a big lately. I thought adding rice cereal was going to do the trick, but it only seemed to ease up for a few days after starting the cereal and now its just progressively gotten worse and worse over the last couple weeks. I called the doctor again today because he's even been crying with the spitting up a little bit and the doctor said for me to try him on soy formula. So I bought a can to try this evening, but haven't had a chance to give it to him yet. He will start on that tomorrow and we'll see how it goes. He has a doctor appointment Friday afternoon, so I'll talk to the doctor again then to see how the soy formula is going and we'll go from there. I really hope it helps.

Other than that, he's doing really well. He gets a little crabby every now and again (probably from teething), but other than that he's mostly a happy baby! He smiles and laughs out loud all the time! He's such a cutie.

Here's his 18 week picture! All Smiles.

Happy Friday!!

Yay its Friday, and a 3 day weekend for me! 

♥ We don't have a lot of plans for the weekend. Just a few things here and there. Friday nights are usually a night where we stay at home, cook dinner and watch a movie. I believe Jake is cooking some spaghetti and we may watch "I Don't Know How She Does It". I haven't heard any reviews on it, but it looked kinda cute.

♥ Tomorrow I may go to lunch and shopping with my Mother-in-Law (and of course Jackson). She works out by a big Carter's store and we've both been wanting to go in there. I've been to Carter's in the mall before, (and love the amount of cute boy clothes they have over many other kids clothing stores) but this is a big stand alone store. I'm hoping they have some good deals. Jackson is growing like a weed. I just had to go through his clothes again and pack away most of his 3-6 month clothes. He's now wearing mostly 6-9 month clothes and some 12 month clothes even! He's such a chunk and he's tall too.

I also hope to clean the house sometime tomorrow. Saturdays are usually my cleaning days. :-)

♥ Sunday we are going to church and then some friends of ours are having a birthday party for their son who turned 3 today. Looking forward to spending time with them. :-)

♥ Monday I'm off work and don't really have any plans. I may run a few errands that day, but thats about it.

So what kind of fun things are you doing this weekend??

Wednesday Loves and Pins

♥ I'm loving that I got Jackson's 3 month pictures taken finally! Here is a link to look at them. They turned out pretty cute considering he got tired and started crying when I put his clothes on. It was super hot in there so I can't say that I blame him, but I had several outfits I wanted to get his picture taken in and we only got one outfit on and only about 4 shots in it before he was D-O-N-E! Oh well, what shots she got of him in just his diaper turned out super cute.

♥ I'm loving that we're half way to the weekend and I have another 3 day weekend coming up! Yay!

♥ I'm loving that the sun is staying up longer these days. I leave work at 5:30 and during most of the winter I leave work in the dark. For the last couple weeks its still been light out when I've left. Of course its dark by the time I get home, but I still love that its light out when I leave work. ☺

♥ I'm loving that Chad Michael Murray is going to be on tonight's episode of One Tree Hill! I know I shouldn't love this show so much, but its a guilty pleasure. I'm going to miss it when its over after this season.

♥ And as always, I'm loving my wonderful and fabulous family!


This would be such a cute family picture.

 I really want Jackson to be Carl from Up for Halloween after seeing this. Too cute!

 I absolutely adore this bag and there is a tutorial on Pinterest on how to make it yourself. Wish I could sew!

 What a clever idea.

 Super cute look for this spring/summer.
