It's Official!!!

This weekend, Jackson took off literally. He is crawling!

For a while now, when people would ask me if he was crawling, I would respond the same way "No, but hopefully soon!" For about a month, we have been saying any day now, but it just wasn't happening. I had come to terms with the fact that he would be 1 and never promoted out of the "bed babies" class at church! I was OK with the fact that he would be carried everywhere.

I would laugh when people would say "Once they are able to move around on their own, life changes forever." Didn't life change enough when he was born? Yes, but now I see what they mean! He is definately keeping me on my toes, that's for sure! Wow, if I am saying this now, what am I going to do when he starts walking? Well, for now I will enjoy my little boy WHO CRAWLS!!!

Jackson's first real snow

I wanted to post some pictures from this weekends "blizzard of 08". Man, did we have a good time in it (although I'm not quite sure what Jackson thought about it!).

It started snowing Friday around 1. Now, anyone who knows me knows that me + snow= BIG KID! I was giddy while I was driving to go get Jackson! We took some pictures while it was snowing, but is was so windy we didn't stay out for too long.

Jackson spent the night with my parents that night, so Jason and I got to go to a movie (God bless grandparents!). Saturday morning, we went to get him early so that we could play in the snow. We built a snowman (of course our snowman was a U of M fan! complete with pom poms, Memphis shirt, and tiger ears). Jackson was so bundled up, that when he would sit up, he would slowly fall over and not be able to get up. He looked exactally like the little boy from A Christmas Story! It was hilarious.
I have to say that our first big snowfall was a success!

Almost 8 months!

(*a new picture of the Jackson... Please excuse all the boxes in the background. My grandparents are moving so thats all their stuff.)

Wow, I can't believe that my little man is almost 8 months old. Is it fair that they grow up that fast...absolutley not!

Jackson has changed so much lately. He is trying so hard to crawl. He is up on his hands and knees, he just can't quite figure out how to go forward. I hate to say it, but it is a very funny thing to watch!

He is also getting such a fun personality. He is so funny and loves to make other people laugh. I think he is going to be alot like his mommy...he is always trying to be the center of attention!

When he starts crawling, I will post again!
