Fun Filled Weekend!

What a weekend, this past weekend we had a great time with some of our friends who came into town from Tallahassee. Friday night we all went to dinner, we were out a little past Jackson’s bed time and he definitely let us know. He got a little grumpy so we went home a little early. He did get to see his little friend Stella for a little while though!
On Saturday we all went to our favorite breakfast place, Metro Diner! Yum! Afterwards we went and hung out by Doris and Charlie’s Pool! Jackson and Stella had a great time splashing and floating around in the pool J

Sunday was quite a busy day! We went to breakfast at Mimi’s then took the little kids to the Zoo! It was quite hot but the kiddos seemed to like it regardless! It was Stella’s first time visiting the Zoo, Jackson showed her around to all his favorite spots! After the Zoo we went to the mall where we Jackson and Stella made their first Build-a-Bear, Jackson made a puppy named Deville, who he dressed as a Jacksonville Jaguars player! While at the mall Stella got her ears pierced! She was so brave! I’m sure Jackson was thankful he wasn’t a girl at that moment! After such a long day the little ones were pooped! Early bed time for them!

My First Tooth!

Jackson officially has a tooth! All this time I had been looking on the bottom of his mouth for his two bottom teeth (which are usually the first ones to come in) and he goes and surprises me with the top right tooth! I didn’t even know, I went to day care at lunch to see him and they showed me! Such an unusual place for a first tooth, he looks like a little vampire! Unfortunately I am unable to get a picture, it's like he knows I want the picture and shuts his mouth and cries if I try open his mouth for a picture! What a little stinker.. lol

Pool Dayz...

Today we had another great pool day! They are becoming quite frequent these days and Jackson could not be happier! He just loves to splash and float around in his tube.. We blew up his little kiddie pool and filled it with those balls you find in ball pits and he just loved it! JJ, Kelly and baby Harrison as well as Casey Sarah and their two kids came and joined for our pool day. We grilled out and lounged around the pool all day. Later on Grammy babysat while Hunter and I went on a date to see a movie J

Army Crawling!

Jackson is army crawling! He isn't quite up to real crawling yet but he is definitely trying. Hunter had him on the floor luring him with a remote control.. lol.. Jackson just loves anything electronic (esp my phone) We put the remote a good two-three feet away and he army crawled the whole way! Time to start the baby proofing!

Mother's Day!

Today was an awesome day! My first Mother's day was truly great.. It started out with the viewing of a video Hunter made for me (from Jackson) of Jackson and I together over the last 7 months. So hard to believe that much time has passed since J was born.. Once we were all ready we went to breakfast and then to church where Jackson had his baby dedication. Later in the day we hung out by the pool at Grammy and Grandaddy's house. Matt, Gina and Kari also came! It was a nice day of relaxing by the pool and spending time together. I couldn't have asked for a better day!

Avery's First Birthday!

This past weekend we went down to Plant City to help celebrate Jamey and Tamara's little girls birthday! She turned one on May 5.. Her birthday party was held at a beautiful park in Lakeland. There were lots of fun playground equipment and a little water area for the kids to play. Avery celebrated her birthday right! Lots of family and friends were there to celebrate such a beautiful little girl! After the party was over we got on the road back to Jacksonville, since we needed to get back for Jackson's dedication the next day.

 On the way back we were able to meet up with Thomas and Katelyn in Orlando. They were at Sea World so we were able to hop off the interstate to say Hi! It was only for a few minutes, but it was great to see them none the less!

Jackson's Dedication

Today Jackson had is baby dedication at church. Every second Sunday of the month the church holds baby dedications for those who want to partake. This month it just so happened to fall on Mother's day.. What a perfect day! Hunter, Jackson and I (along with all the other parents) got up in front of the church while the pastor said a prayer. Such a special day for our little guy :) Grandaddy was able to make it back into town, and Gina, Matt, Kari and Grammy were also there to celebrate!

Trip to Atlanta!

This weekend we went to Atlanta to visit Elyssa and Reid.. We drove up after work so Jackson would sleep most of the way.. Saturday hunter and Reid watched Jackson while we went shopping for Elyssa's wedding dress! Later in the afternoon we walked to a nearby park where Jackson went on his first swing :) he loved it!

Afterwards we went to dinner at an amazing Mexican restaurant near their house. Jackson wore his new chuck taylors that daddy bought for him!

Sunday Jackson celebrated his first Easter! we went to church in Buckhead then went to brunch before getting on the road back home. Lil J just loved his little waste outfit from aunt Elyssa :)
