My little boy.....

 Here we are in the beginning of fall, which makes me realize that in just 2 1/2 months, my baby will be 2! Where has the time gone? It seems like yesterday he was sitting on the floor covered in drool and now he is becoming a little boy. He is really trying to exert his independance these days and wants to do everything for himself.  He wants to put the lids on his cups, he wants to get his own water, he wants to open all containers by himself, etc, etc. He also wants to pick which cup he drinks from and utensils he uses.  He has also figured out how to take all of his clothes off, which made for an exciting morning when daddy found him in his crib completely naked.....diaper included. He must have done it in the middle of the night because that morning everything smelled of dried urine....including himself! Crossing our fingers that this was a one time event! We also have some exciting news...after 2 years away, I am going back to work! I will be working Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Kaufmann clinic and I am very excited. It is bittersweet because it makes me sad to leave Jackson, but we got him into a great preschool those mornings which makes me comfortable with my decision. We are in the process of looking for a nanny to watch him in the afternoons until I or Greg get home from work, which is a daunting process! I hope this transition is a smooth one!! This first picture is of Jackson going grocery shopping at the Children's Museum. He loved the conveyor belt.

Jackson and Mary doing a little fishing. The last time we were fishing at the museum, Jackson decided to join the fish in the water.  Luckily he stayed dry this trip!

We are in the process of finding Jackson a big boy bed for his new room! Jackson is going to be moving to the old guest bedroom once our basement is finished, which should be in 3 weeks! While shopping, Jackson found this huge bear and dragged it around the store.

  I think I need to work on my short game.  Jackson's new golf clubs from Noni and Granddaddy!

Where is a golfcart when you need one?

We went to a tailgating birthday party this weekend for Jackson's friend Sarah. This picture is daddy having to hold Jackson back from attaching the cake!
 I  love icing!
Mary giving Jackson a ride!
Cheese! Jackson loves to get his picture taken!

What an adorable child. His smile just makes me smile! Tell Daddy to watch out, since it looks like Jackson already knows how to carry his clubs. We are so excited that some lucky people in Atlanta will have Jackson's mom for their doctor. Maybe we'll apply for that nanny position in a few years!

I wish I had a cute little helper like Jackson to go grocery shopping with!! He's getting so big and growing up so fast!! Congratulations on the job! You'll be great! And if you hate it, I'm sure Jackson will let you have your old job back!! :)

Jackson is so cute!!! He does everything with such energy and enthusiasm!!! I am so happy for you and happier for the people that will get you for their doctor! Wish I could apply for the nanny job, I would love to take care of that little sweetheart!!!
