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.

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.
