From pitching with a bounce to pitching with no bounce - 24 months

Jackson hitting off the tee - 24 months

Bubbles! Jackson 24 months

He had been running back and forth through the bubbles laughing, but by the time I got the camera, he had stopped.   He LOVES it!  Thank you, Uncle Wes!

Laughing with Yogurt - Jackson 24 months

Ryan was cracking Jackson up!  I had to hide the camera every time Jackson looked at me so he wouldn't ask to "wook" (look at the video).

The "Baby C's"

Ryan and I sing the "ABC's" a lot, in hopes that Jackson will catch on.  For the first time a few nights ago, he tried to sing with us and said, "baby c.  baby c.  baby c."  So. stinkin. cute.

We have been checking out books from the library, and Jackson, of course, picks out a baseball book eery time.  A few have had pictures of Babe Ruth, so Jackson now recognizes him and talks about him and his "big hit."  Then last night, we were getting ready to go to the pool and Jackson said, "Babe Ruf comin'?."  He wanted Babe Ruth to come to the pool and play with him.  :)

Hitting the Baseball - 23 months

As we all know, Jackson LOVES sports, especially baseball and golf.  He doesn't like to use his tee anymore for baseball, and now asks us to "pit" it ("pitch").  These videos pale in comparison to how well he usually hits it, but it's the best we've gotten on film so far.  You will notice when we start counting, we say "1," he says "2" and then we say "3".  :-)

Blue Ridge with Mimi & Granddad

Better late than never!  We went to Blue Ridge with MiMi and Granddad in May and had a blast!  (Jackson 22 months)

 "Did I do that?"

Playing baseball while watching baseball.

Catch it, Mimi!

 Uncle Wes is so fun!

We got to play putt-putt while the big boys went fly-sighing.  Needless to say, Jackson loved it!

It went in the hole!

Mining for Gems

Waiting for Daddy to get home, singing Jesus Loves Me.

Trip to the Apple Orchard / Strawberry Patch

Jackson chasing the tractor

Picking fresh strawberries

Jackson was way more interested in the tractor than the strawberries.  We ended up riding the tractor back and forth for much longer than we picked strawberries!

Learning To Say "Jackson"

I wish you could see Jackson's face, but we have to hide the camera from him or he will stop whatever he's doing.
