3 months!!

Wow! I can't believe that we have been blessed with this sweet little boy for the last 3 months!! Beckett has changed so much over the last 3 months and looking at him now, it is hard to believe he was ever that tiny little 4 pound baby we brought home! He is smiling much more now and starting to try to make different babbling noises. He is awake a lot more and is just the sweetest, most content little baby. He rarely cries and that is only when he is hungry. He is doing great at night waking once to no times at night. Jackson contines to be a wonderful big brother giving him kisses and wanting to hold him as often as he can!!
We have made great progress with Jackson and potty training, but we still have some issues. If he gets distracted playing, he just won't stop to go to the potty. The problem now is that he does not want his poo poo or pee pee on him, so after he has an accident, instead of coming and telling us, he will take his clothes off wherever he is! This has happened on playdates with friends and even restaurants. Luckily, we have always been surrounded by other very understanding parents!! We had Jackson's preschool parent teacher conferece and Jackson got an A+. He is progressing right on track and is exceeding in where he should be intellectually. His speech is right on track as well as his gross and fine motor skills. His teacher described him as intelligent, physical, and full of energy. That's an understatement!

Jackson loves to hold his brother!! Luckily he understands that he can't hold him without mommy or daddy around!

Nothing sweeter than a peacefully sleeping little boy!

Spring has sprung in Atlanta. We went to our first brunch as a family of 4 and I just had to get a picture of the boys in front of the beautiful tulips!

Our sweet family! Love all my boys!!

My sweet toddler! Jackson is becoming much more independant. He recently likes to wake up and dress himself. This is what he picked out one day. He loves to wear his football jersey!! The world has forgiven Vick right?

You gotta love that smile. Whenever we are having a rough time, all he has to do is flash that smile and it makes it all better :)

Winter Break!

2 weeks ago, Jackson was on winter break so we filled the week with fun adventures to the Children's museum, Aquarium, and on days it was nice, we went to the park! Jackson absolutely loves the children's museum. His 2 favorite things are the trains and the shopping cart. Every quarter, there is a different theme, and this quarter, it was Clifford. It was really cute and Jackson had so much fun!

Jackson and Cleo!

This was Jackson's favorite part. There was a truck next to a conveyor belt. He would load bones onto the conveyor belt and they would fall into Clifford's bowl. He would then pick the bones back up and start all over again!

The big red dog himself! His tail was actually a little slide :)

Jackson and his brother. I love how Beckett is looking up at him!

Trip to the Aquarium! We went to the Dolphin show, which is a live show similar to Sea World. Jackson absolutely loved it! He was clapping and trying to sing to songs. Everytime the dolphins would jump, he would look at me and say "Woooah!"

Beckett was mezmerized by all the fish! He was just staring at them!!

Beckett in the bumbo! He loves to sit and watch his brother play in his playroom! Jackson can't wait until Beckett can play with him. While he is playing, he will occasionally bring over a toy to Beckett and say "This is a baby toy" It is really sweet!!

My poor little man! While Jackson was riding his bike, he had his first big spill and actually fell face first into the bastkeball pole. Luckily we didn't lose any teeth!!
