End of Summer 2012 Pics

Jackson is growing up so fast!  Some highlights are:
- He sings Jesus Loves Me with us every night.  
- He has also memorized what I tell him every night before bed.  So now this is how it goes:
Me: You are
J: strong
Me: You are
J: loving
Me: You are
J: kind
Me: You are
J: gentle
Me: You are
J: good listener
Me: You
J: obey mommy daddy
You are:
J: a joy
Me: and total delight and I love you
J: sooo much
Me: I love being your mommy.

He is learning to share his toys.  When we are at the "choo choo store" (Barnes & Noble) and a new child walks up to the train table, he picks out a train for them and goes and says, "Here go."  (Of course  usually saves the Thomas train for himself, but can you blame the kid?)

He is loving "school!" On days we aren't there, he sometimes says, "I wanna go school, mommy." 

He is also loving his Daddy Dare Care days with Ryan on Fridays.  They play hard!!  Ryan has a sore back most days from jumping Jackson on the bed, in his crib, throwing him in the air, etc!  Jackson loves his Daddy and his Daddy time!  They love to go eat at Moe's or "Flay" (Chick-fil-a), go play at the "golf store" (Dicks or Academy Sports), or go to playgrounds.  This past Friday at Dicks, Jackson noticed the green path that's painted on the floor around the whole shoe section.  When he saw it, he ran around the track several times saying "Weee dow, weeee, dow, weeee dow" (that's his sound for a fire engine).  

Here's a video of him playing with a fire truck and making his fire truck noise.  He is talking about "Fireman Sam" too.  

Here are some recent pics.

At Wes and Honor's Engagement Party

Granna and Jackson watching a movie together.

We are so happy for Wes and Honor!  

Playing in his light box with water beads.

This kid LOVES to wear his baseball helmet...

He loves it so much that he wore it to the mall and didn't take it off once.  It was so cute!

Again, with the helmet.  This happens at least once a day.

Reading with Daddy.

Learning colors.

Beach trip!

Unfortunately, Jackson got sick and his asthma acted up.  But at least he is happy doing breathing treatments! 

Very first thing he did on the beach: take his Thomas chair to the edge of the water and sit down to look at the ocean. :)

We know Jackson doesn't feel well when he falls asleep on us.


Family bike ride.  Jackson LOVED riding bikes!

Playing football with Mimi.

Our beach house.

My camera lens was fogged up, but this is too cute not to post.

"I see you"

So handsome!!

Daddy left his mostly empty hot chocolate within reach...
