Easter 2012

We had such a wonderful Easter this year. Jackson looked so cute in his little outfit. :-)

We started the day with giving Jackson his basket at home. Its kind of hard to put an Easter basket together without candy, but I got him some little Gerber Puffs and some yummy flavors of baby food. I also got him a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse C.D. for us to listen to in the car. :-)

Then we went to church for breakfast and a beautiful morning service outside. After the morning service we had our regular Sunday service, followed by an Easter Egg Hunt outside. It was a beautiful day. The weather was PERFECT!!

Jackson outside for the Easter Egg Hunt. He loved playing with the eggs.

Daddy helping Jackson with his bag of eggs. He loved his bag of eggs and wouldn't let go of it. Ha.

After church we took some family pictures. This is a tradition that we do every year.

Our little family of 3! ♥

My parents with their grandchildren. ☺

My Uncle Mark and Aunt Karla with their 2 boys Tyler and Travis and Travis' girlfriend, Nadine.

My Mom with her Dad and brother.

The boys... Mason, Landon and Jackson.

During our little photo shoot, we had to take a short break for a bottle. ☺

Jackson is getting better and better at holding his own bottle.

After church we went to the graveyard to visit Grammy. It was the Thursday before Easter, last year, that she passed away. My Papa Reg had bought a pretty hummingbird to put on the tombstone next to her name. :-) I miss her so much, especially during the holidays. I wish so much that she was here to see Jackson. I just know she would have loved him so much and he would have loved her too. 

After visiting Grammy, we went to my Great Uncle Don and Great Aunt Judy's house for lunch. We had a great time visiting with family. ☺

My aunt Lisa made these lamb cakes covered in marshmallows. They were really cute. Landon enjoying a lamb.

My sister had this cute bunny hat that Landon wore for his first Easter. We took some pictures of Mason and Jackson in the hat and their cute little Easter outfits.

I just love Mason's smile! So cute.

My 2 boys relaxing after lunch. ♥

Jackson and I. He was not thrilled with taking pictures at this point.

Daddy getting Jackson to laugh. I just adore that smile!

Jackson eying a few glasses of soda on the table. He looks so big in this picture. ☺

We had a great Easter. I hope you all did as well!

Jackson is 24 Weeks Old!

Jackson turned 24 weeks old this past Thursday. 

He is getting so big and is such a happy baby! I just hate leaving him in the mornings because he's always so happy and fun. 

He's started rolling his hands like we do in Patty Cake. He'll "roll it up" with his hands. Its way cute!!

He had a great first Easter. He looked so cute in his little outfit and hat. A post on that is following shortly. :-)

We started him on Enfamil AR to try and see if that would help with the spit up. I had heard that this formula really worked for spitting up, but that it could be constipating for some babies, so I was hesitant to try it and just bought it this week as a last resort. I'm pleased to say that no other formula or even the Zantac has helped as much as the Enfamil AR has so far. I'm loving it!! I'm also pleased to say that there have not been any constipation issues! Yay! We just started it last Friday, so we're still in trial mode, but so far its working great. He still spits up on occasion but its only about 3 or 4 times a day as opposed to so many times I would lose count. Its also almost always shortly after a bottle. Before he would spit up from the time he took a bottle to 3 and 4 hours later. I almost hate to get my hopes up, but so far this new formula is working like a charm. :-)

I was off work yesterday, so I decided to take him into work to show him off to my co-workers. He hadn't been in to see them since he was around 6 weeks old. He was such a little charmer. He smiled for all of them and was so happy while we were there. I dressed him in his little "tie" onesie so he'd be dressed for the office. :-) My co-workers got a kick out of it.
