Favorite Things for the day

1. My baby boy and husband
2. Air Conditioning... I am so glad I didn't live in the olden days
3. My brother finishing my fans
4. Stroller Strides- those girls keep me entertained and in shape
5. Cold water (for above reason and it's like 90 degrees outside)
6. Summer time naps
7. All beef hotdogs on the grill- fast and yummy
8. Internet on my cellphone- what did I do without it?
9. Sleeping baby
10. Time to relax and not worry about work
11. Books on tape
12. It's 8:30pm and I can go to bed and do the housework in the morning

I am so thankful for the wonderful life we have! We couldn't be more blessed with a perfect baby, home, and family!

Jackson and I have been having a lot of fun the last 2 days! We have gone to Stroller Strides, played on our playset, and laughed a lot! I love being home with Jackson. I have so much fun with him even when he is whining.

Our road is still having a lot of work done on it. They fianlly laid the cement the other day and it's 10 days at least before they will open our road. That stinks, cause we have to trek across people's yards to get to our car. Jackson loves to watch all the men and the trucks along the road.

Things Jackson does now that he is almost 1...

*when he wants to go outside he goes to the door and hits the window... if I don't move fast enough he cries until we go outside.
*he stands up a lot now and plays while standing
*he can walk a lot, but still wants us to help him sometimes
*he fell today while walking to the stairs and got a big goose egg on his forehead
*he loves to splash in the sink when we wash his hands

Houston, we have a WALKER!!

Last night Jackson officially walked for the first time!!! He has been taking "teeny" steps inbetween parents... but last night he walked across the rug in his room from Andy to me and back again taking 5-8 steps!!! I know it's not good now that he is a "walker", but I am so proud!! he's only 10 months old!!! What a big boy!! I will take some video tonight and try to upload it.

Wedding Fun

This past weekend the Moore Family (extended, too) headed to Des Moines for the wedding of Ryan and Dani (Andy's cousin Ryan). We had a great time with family and dancing! Even Jackson got to go to the wedding. He had his FIRST ever babysitter while there.

Jackson eating his first cookie, he took it right out of my hand and stuffed it in his mouth! Uncle Wally did Jackson's hair, he wanted it out of his face. :)

Jackson Loves to hide under things these days. Here he is in the closet at our hotel.
