32 weeks!

Well, it was a big week for Jackson! On August 1st, we achieved mobility! Leave it to Aunt Kiera to figure out what to do to get him motivated to move. She placed some goldfish on the ground in front of him, and he army crawled to get them. He has now learned to actually get up on his feet and propel himself forward when he really wants to get to something. Things that get my son moving include food, electrical outlets, and any electronic. Luckily Aunt Sarah prepared us for this day by buying us outlet covers as soon as I told her I was pregnant. Sarah learned the hard way and actually gave herself quite a shock when she was a child. She liked to play house and decided the electical outlet made a perfect door lock and a paperclip a perfect key. Needless to say that was a one time mistake. We also had a wonderful visit from Noni, Granddaddy and GiGi. We are gearing up for our big trip to Florida on Saturday. We have pack n play trained and even bottle trained. To my relief, Jackson drank a bottle without any problems. We are very excited about the trip and will take lots of pictures!

Jackson loved to sit in the cart without the floppy seat. When he is very excited he babbles dada a lot. He was yelling it so loud up and down the aisles that multiple people said "Someone is looking for their dada!"

This is the new cadillac that Noni and Granddaddy bought Jackson. His first car!

I love my first set of wheels!

Mary's birthday party. We were all wearing winnie the pooh hats!

Noni and Granddaddy with the grandkids at the party. We can never seem to get a picture of them both looking at the camera at the same time!

What is this?

The aftermath of the first taste of cake. Time to get in the bath!

Since it was a party, we decided to let Jackson try a little. He loved it so much we couldn't keep his hands out of his mouth.

Give me more mommy!

Time to clean up the mess.

Thanks for visiting GiGi! We can't wait to see you again! The next post won't be until we get back from vacation. Hopefully we will get some good shots! Wish us luck!!
