What I'm Loving Wednesday

♥ I'm loving that Jackson is feeling much better and taking all his bottles and binkie again! I'd been so worried about him and I am so relieved that he's feeling better.

♥ I'm loving that my cousin Brice and his girlfriend Christina welcomed their little baby boy into the world this morning. My cousin is a HUGE Dallas Cowboys fan and so they named their baby Dallas. They live about an hour and a half away so I won't get to meet Dallas for a couple weeks, but here's a picture that they posted on Facebook today. I can't wait to hold him.

♥ I'm loving that its Cardinals opening day today and that means we're having a food day at work!! Lots and lots of yummy food.

 ♥ I'm loving that Easter is Sunday and I get to spend the day with my family!! 

♥ I'm loving that Jake and I might go see a movie this Saturday. Its been since Valentines Day weekend that we've gone to see a movie. We're thinking we'll probably go see 21 Jump Street. The previews look pretty funny and it has Channing Tatum in it... need I say more?

♥ And as always I'm loving my super fabulous family.

Jackson is 23 Weeks Old!

I'm very late posting this, but Jackson turned 23 weeks old last Thursday.

This past week we tried many new foods because he wouldn't take his bottle due to an ear infection. We tried oatmeal, peaches, pears, applesauce, and green beans. It took him a little while to come around to the fruits, but he did end up liking them. He's still not too sure about the green beans yet.

He's rolling all around now and is really pushing off on his feet to try and crawl. He was pulling on his play-mat and moved forward just a couple inches so he's definitely close to army crawling.

His core is getting really strong and he's sitting supported very well. If he had better balance he would be sitting unsupported very well. He just can't seem to stay upright, but definitely has the strength to do it.

He's wanting to roll over no matter where he is now. In his swing, bouncy seat, bed, everywhere! So we have to strap him in now if he's in some kind of seat. :-)

He laughs at everything. He thinks Daddy is especially funny, but he will laugh at almost anyone or anything. He has such a cute laugh, very contagious. I love it!

He is really starting to notice the dogs and cat. He really likes it when the cat jumps up by him and meows. He will talk back to the cat. Its super cute. He also likes when Max comes over and gives him kisses. :-)

At the Dr. the other day he weighed 18 pounds 4 ounces!! He's a big boy for only 5 months old. :-) I love his chubby cheeks and the rolls in his legs. So cute!
