Jackson's 42 Week Pictures!

Jackson is 42 weeks old now! Only 10 more weeks until he turns 1 year old! I can't believe we are that close to one already! :-( Time is going by way too fast!

I don't have much to report this week. He's walking all over the place and getting into everything! We have baby proofed the house by putting in the electrical outlet protectors and we've always had gates up to keep him in whatever room we want him to be in. I've had to take down almost all the pictures that I had sitting out in our living room because he is so tall that he can reach the top of our entertainment center and the end table. :-(

He tried a few new foods over the weekend, some small bites of grilled chicken and a couple bites of licorice. He loved both of course!

He's got his 2 top front teeth all the way through now and seems to be a little happier. I'm hoping we'll get a teething break for a while. 

He slept all the way through the night last night!! He went to sleep at around 9 and didn't wake up until around 6:15 this morning. I gave him a bottle and then he fell back asleep until around 9 this morning!! This would be a perfect sleep schedule for us. Oh how I hope it continues (but I'm not getting my hopes up for that). I have a feeling he's been sleeping better the last couple of nights because the teething pain has subsided for now. :-)

Saturday, Jackson started giving me hugs! He's never really done that before. He'll give kisses from time to time, but never hugs! Its the sweetest thing EVER! He comes over to you and lays his head on your leg or if you're down on the floor he'll lay his head on your shoulder and even say awww! It melts my heart! I just love this little boy of mine so much!

My Papa's 75th Birthday Party

Last Saturday we celebrated my Papa Reg's 75th Birthday. We had a party at Hatfield and McCoys Restaurant for both him and his twin brother Ronald. :-) You would never know he was 75 as he's in such great health! I'm so thankful for my Papa Reg and love him so much. Here are a few pictures from the party. :-)
