Weekend with Stella!

This past weekend we went over to Tallahassee to see Gina’s trial run for her hair and make up and to work on stuff for her bridal shower! Jackson was great on the car ride, he slept the whole time. When we got there he was a little fussy but loved seeing his friend Stella! It is so cute to see them together. I just can’t believe how much bigger he is than her, esp since they are 6 weeks apart. Jackson sure is a big boy! They loved lying on the floor and playing together. Tummy time is much more fun with a friend!

First time eating real food!

Well.. if you consider rice cereal real food.. lol.. What an experience! Jackson wasn’t to sure about the rice cereal at first. I couldn’t blame him it did not look very appetizing. Lol.. At first he just pushed the cereal around in his mouth and then spat it out. After a couple of tries I think he got the hang of it. Update: we have tried the rice cereal a few times now mixed with a little bit of banana baby food… He loves it! The bananas made a huge difference J We are still working on getting more food in the mouth than on the bib though!

Mommy’s Birthday!

I must say I had one of the greatest birthdays this year. Not only did I get to spend it with my wonderful husband, but with my beautiful baby boy also J I received flowers at work from Hunter and then another bouquet from my mom, brother and Katelyn. I felt so special! I got home to an amazing dinner of lobster mac n’ cheese, chicken with portabello mushrooms, asparagus and cheese biscuits! YUM! Not to mention the cookie cake I got for dessert. And last but not least the birthday candy apple from Reid and Elyssa! One of the best parts of the day was getting a birthday card from Jackson, signed with a stamp of his foot J Apparently he did not like his foot colored with bright red ink!

3 months old today!

I can’t believe Jackson is already three months old! It feels like we just brought him home from the hospital.. My how time flies! By now Jackson has rolled over, smiled, cooed and is almost sleeping through the night!

First day of Day Care :(

Today was Jacksons first day of day care and my first day back at work.  It was a sad day for me! We got to Jackson's day care quite a bit early so I could set him up in his crib and make sure he was all settled in. Luckily Hunter went with me cause I was a blubbering idiot! Jackson was cool as a cucumber, watching all the other kids and making new friends. The whole experience was definitely harder for me then it was for him..  I was able to go and see him at lunch which was great, I was so relieved to see that he had a good day thus far and everyone loved him! Thank goodness the rest of the day went by fast! In the end both of our first days were a success..

So happy to see Mommy at lunch time!

Trip to the Zoo!

Jackson, Gina and I went to the Zoo today for Jackson’s first trip.. I think he liked it! I walked around with him in his baby Bjorn and he just started at all the different animals.. He is going to be just like his mama with her love for animals :) It was a great way to spend my last day before going back to work

Had a great day at the zoo!

 Feeding the Giraffes! What a long tongue!
Jackson wasn't to impressed by the goats!

Trip to the Aquarium!

Jackson, Elyssa and I went to the Georgia Aquarium today! Such a fun experience and a perfect thing to do on a rainy afternoon. We walked around and saw all the exhibits which were amazing! I think Jackson liked the beluga whales the best. He just stared at them as they swum around. After the Aquarium we ventured back to Elyssa and Reid’s house where we dropped off Jackson for some boy time while Elyssa and I went and got a much need mani/pedi! That night we ordered dinner in and watched some football. Perfect day!

 Watching the whales
so pretty!
