Baby's First Christmas

Jack's first Christmas is over, it went by way too fast but it was fabulous! We had a great time with my family over the holidays. My nephew Tristan was with us too which was a blast...so fun to have the boys together for the holidays. Other than some sleep issues at Grandma and Grandpa's Jackson was a very good boy and I think Santa noticed because he got so many fun new toys that he is loving! He loved playing with the wrapping paper, ribbon and bows and managed to even get a present open on his own (by complete accident). My Dad made the boys the cutest little wooden walkers that they loved and Jimmy's Dad gave Jackson a motorcycle rocker. Very fun things! I must have been a good girl too because I was also spoiled with my new FAVORITE Lulu Lemon sweatsuit, a new digital camera and a trip to Mexico!!! That's right, a trip to Mexico from Jimmy. We aren't going until Sep so I have plenty of time to get Jack off the boob! We are going with our good friends The Williamsons and I can't hardly wait!!

It was a great holiday and now it's back to the grind. I'm dying to get my house back in order and put all the Christmas stuff away. It's fun at first but by the time Christmas is over It all feels like clutter. Thankfully we have a quiet long weekend ahead of us so we'll fill it up with organizing and baby proofing. Jackson has really gotten the hang of this crawling thing and is all over the place. He is working on figuring out the stairs and is into everything. It's time to baby proof the house!!

We have so many pics from the holidays so here is a taste of the festivities!

What a mess

Jackson is quite adventurous with food these days. He loves to feed himself and he is very interested in what we are eating. He's pretty much done with purees and now likes to eat chunks of food. On the menu currently are chunks of banana, avocado, tomato, fresh mozzarella, blueberries and sweet potato. He also LOVES yogurt and applesauce and he had scrambled eggs for the first time and thought they were fabulous. This is what meal time is like...

7 Months??

Oh my, it seems so weird to say that Jackson is 7 months! That seems so old...lol. I used to look at mom's with 7 month old babies and think that they were old, what happened? It's life I guess and Jackson is oh so much fun right now. He is getting very good at crawling and is all over the place. We are in serious need of baby proofing but we'll just have to watch him like a hawk unitl after the holidays because there is NO time. He has 3 teeth coming in on the top, one has broken the skin and the other 2 are so close. He is a drool machine but doesn't seem to be in too much pain although we have had a couple of rough nights. He is full of laughs and smiles and I could just kiss on his squishy little cheeks all day! Of course I'm super busy with the holidays and my every minute is filled with something to be doing. Fun stuff but sooooo busy!!! Therefore, I will try to post more later but for now, here are 7 month pictures...

Milestones!!

What a big day in Jackson's little world. Not only was today his 7 month birthday but he crawled for the first time and had another tooth break the skin! Wow, that's a lot for a little guy! I was so bummed because I was out of the house working but Jimmy was working from home so he caught the first real crawl on video. Jack's been rocking on all fours for several weeks now and he's been army crawling for a few weeks too so I knew the real crawling was only a few days away.

Surprisingly Jack isn't too fussy but he has 3 teeth on the top that are close to coming in. His two front teeth have almost poked through and the left side tooth broke the skin today. I guess all Jack wants for Christmas is his two front teeth. Perfect, sounds cheap to me!

I'm off to San Fran early tomorrow am for a a work X Mas party. I'm already missing the little guy so much and I haven't even left yet. Luckily it's only one night but wish me luck while I pack the pump through the airport. If anyone see's a weird lady trying to get breastmilk through security and running the pump motor in the airport bathroom stall please ignore me!

I'll post 7 month pics when I get back!

Santa Baby

A few days ago we introduced Jackson to Santa for the first time! I was really excited and Jackson wasn't so sure about the beard. We braved the crowds and went downtown which I hope will be a tradition because it's so fun to go downtown during the holidays and the Santa is at Nordstrom. I can't think of a better place than Nordstrom to see Santa :-)

Blessed

Words can't even begin to describe how thankful I am this year. We have been blessed ten times over with our little turkey. I thank my lucky stars everyday!


We had a very busy and really fun Thanksgiving. We spent the day at the Vann Family Cabin with J's Family and my parents. We had tons of food and lots of little kiddos to play with. My Dad brought Jackson a sled he made him. We pulled Jackson and his cousin Naomi around the living room in it and it was too cute! Now we just need snow!


On Friday braved the crowds and went to the Macy's Day X Mas parade downtown. It was very fun and I think might need to become a tradition! We also managed to get our tree and get the house decorated (thanks to my Mom) and we had Jimmy's Mom over for dinner on Saturday. I think Jackson is still recovering from all the commotion, he has slept for 14 hours the past two nights and taken long naps. If only I could do the same!

Wow, I know everyone is thinking this but I feel like Christmas is tomorrow. Now that Thanksgiving has passed Christmas is so soon and we are so busy between now and then it is going to be here before we know it! I'm hoping we can get to see Santa this weekend. I'm excited to introduce Jackson to him for the first time :-). For now he just likes to look at the tree and the lights!

A great invention

This little thing is fabulous! They have it at Babies R Us and for any of you mams out there worried about their little one choking before they are old enough to eat chunky food this thing is perfect. It also entertains Jackson for a good 1/2 hour while he munches on it. I've put banana and frozen mango in it and he gets most of it out and works at it for quite a while. I highly recommend it!
