A little stranger anxiety

Well, we have entered the stranger anxiety stage. Everytime we go somewhere now Jackson is sure to clinging to my our daddy's legs. It doesn't take him long to warm up, but it can be a little akward depending on what mommy is wearing. We went to a friend of Jackson's birthday party this weekend and I wore a cotton dress. Well, as soon as I put him down, he was running for the cover of my dress. Luckily I was able to manuever him out from under it before we were asked to leave for indecent exposure! We had a wonderful week with visits from Aunt Glo, Great Granddaddy and Peebo. Here are some pics. The first pic is Jackson and Mary in the ball pit. I was tickling both of them and they would just laugh! Jackson now says his version of Mary. As soon as we go over the railroad tracks to get to Brad and Kiera's house he starts saying Mamee. It is too cute!

Jackson and Mary heading up the stairs.
Watch out Aunt Sarah. Your bluebird record for eating the rice the fastest with chopsticks may be broken soon!
It never ceases to amaze me the things Jackson likes to eat. He loves all fruits, hummus, homemade ceasar salad dressing, salsa, anything with garlic, and spicy tuna rolls! It just goes to show you that you just have to let them try it and you will be surprised what they will like.
We went to the square to play on the train and Jackson met this little boy.  He loved to help Jackson get off the slide, climb on the bricks, and chase him around. Jackson would follow him everywhere and try to do whatever he was doing. It is always funny to me how Jackson always seems to gravitate to the older boys and want to do whatever they are doing.
The farmer's market started this weekend so we went up there in the wagon. Jackson loves strawberries so I bought him a pint. He ate more strawberries than I have ever seen him eat! I was so excited because I am growing strawberries in my garden. We had been checking on one juicy berry all week. The day I thought it would be perfect to let Jackson pick, some other creature had the same idea. It was gone!

After about a pint of strawberries. Delicious!

Jackson sure does love his Great Granddaddy. He would go and play for something for a minute and then run back to sit on his lap. It was so sweet!

He also loves his Peebo! We had the best visit with you guys and miss you already! Come back soon!!

Look how smart Jackson many 1 1/2 year olds can manuever chopsticks??!! Happy Mother's Day!!!

It's on...let the chopstick rice race begin! I can't wait to see you guys!!!

Hmmm, a little stranger anxiety. Next, he'll be calling Greg home from work to return a pizza!
