Happy Days

We’re enjoying life so, so much. Jamin has been laid off for about a month now. That can be a tough situation, but the Lord has provided, and we’re loving being all together.
Sometimes he likes his johnny jump-up. He’s still pretty little, but he loves sitting up. 🙂

Too cute for words!

He liked holding this toy, but then he got frustrated. 🙂

Gotta’ love the outfit…oh yeah, the smile too!

His smile melts our hearts. We just love him, love him, love him. We’re going to the pediatrician this week. I’m anxious to see what he weighs. He’s definitely growing. He has outgrown a lot of clothes already! My, how time flies! Thanks for looking!

Virginia Visit

We had a great visit this past week with Jamin’s family. We left Monday morning when Jackson woke up for his middle-of-the-night feeding. So we left at 3:45. Jackson slept until around 8:30 and just cried a little after that, so we’ll be night travelers from now on. 🙂

He’s a prodigy!

All this vacation makes a boy sleepy…

Jamin’s cousin Mark and family: Jennifer, Rachel and Rhett (two weeks older than Jackson)

They could be twins…how scary!

Happy Valentine’s Day from Daddy!

Sweet Smiles!!

We had such a fun trip…now it’s time to rest from our vacation!!

Pictures of Guess Who

I know this is a LOT of pictures, but I just can’t narrow it down any more. 🙂 I’m just now able to get different expressions, and some smiles. They’re all so cute…well, we think so anyway. 😉
I love when he lays like this. 🙂

I love this! He looked right at the camera and smiled (although I’m sure it was an accident).

Look at his little round face!

This one’s dark, but he was falling asleep and smiling all over the place.

Gotta’ love the yawns!

Jackson has had a big week, including going to new people’s houses and a different church, hearing Daddy preach for the first time (he thought it was boring…he slept all the way through it…just kidding, it was great Jamin), also his first trip to Cracker Barrel! We are so blessed!!

This past Saturday we went to a basketball game in Hillsboro. It was Crown vs. Southern State Community College (or something like that). It was a lot of fun. I didn’t take any pictures of the game, but I did take this picture of Mrs. Sharon Booth holding Jackson. Our family has known the Booths all of my life. Their daughter went to Crown the same time I did, and their youngest son is there now, and plays on the basketball team.

Here’s Jackson after Daddy helps him suck his thumb. It’s so cute!

Ready for church on Feb. 3. It’s so wonderful to go to church as a family, even if I do end up in the nursery more often than not. 🙂

Ready to go to Tennessee! Well, we thought we were ready. Jackson had a rough time in his carseat. We’re praying he’ll do better on the way home. I don’t mind if he cries if he’s just crying because he doesn’t like his seat. But if he’s crying because he feels all alone back there, or just because he wants Mommy, I have a tough time handling that. Jamin said that’s why he bought ear plugs. (He’s kidding.)

Here’s my precious Granny Heidel holding Jackson. I’m so glad she got to see him while he’s still little.

Here’s Mom (Mimi) giving Jackson a bath in the kitchen sink. He loved it (and so did Mimi!).

Uncle Gene and Jackson (my mom’s brother). I forgot to get a picture of Aunt Patsy (mom’s sister). I’m sorry, Aunt Patsy!

My sister Kristan (Auntie K) and Jackson. I didn’t get one of her when they visited OH. In case you can’t tell, 😉 she is expecting a baby in April – her fourth boy! 🙂

Four generations: Granny Snow, Dad, me and Jackson

He was so sweet after church last night, grinning for Daddy!

Parenthood is so much fun! Jackson is a little tired and cranky right now. He’s had lots of visitors and a different schedule. I’m still glad we came, but dread isn’t a strong enough word to describe how I feel about another long car ride. 🙂 I’m sure it will be fine. We also had some pictures done the other night in my brother’s studio. Between crying, we got some great pictures. Here are a few, but I’ll be posting those at the end of the week, Lord willing.

Y’all come back now, ya hear?

Want a laugh?

Click here, and then click here.

Aren’t those so funny? They’re on my brother’s blog (Jonathan), and I thought it would be much easier to link there than to find them and post them myself. 🙂 I hope they made your day brighter. 🙂

Post #100!

Well, we’ve made it to 100 posts! Yea! How fun blogging has turned out to be. And thank you to all my faithful readers who continue to check in, even though I have turned into one of “those bloggers” (who only post a few times a month). Here are some more pictures.
Sweet little face!

“Daddy time”

I know this is a terrible picture, but he looks so adorable. This is how I am able to walk on the treadmill. Sometimes he sleeps, but he really likes to walk with me…and it burns extra calories! 🙂

Poor baby!

Helping Mommy do the laundry

I love my boy!

Our love for this little guy grows every day! We are so thankful. It is a wonderful thing to be a parent.

In other news, 🙂 I got my wedding ring back on this week. The problem is, it will not come back off. I tried everything yesterday, lotion, dish soap, ice. It won’t come off! But I figure as I lose a little more weight, I will eventually be able to get it off…I hope.

We’re going to Tennessee this week! Yea! I can’t wait for my grandmothers to see Jackson. It will be so much fun. Then the next week, we’re going to Virginia. Jamin is laid off from his job for a month or so, so we can do whatever we want. I’m hoping Jackson will travel well. We’ll see.

Happy February!
