My Valentine

I have a new Valentine this year. He has taught me more about love than I could ever have imagined. He melts my heart each time he smiles at me. I love learning about him every day (like how he hates when things cover his eyes-- like when a shirt goes over his head) and watching him grow. He is becoming "chatterbox" these days and he has is beginning to use his hands and play with toys. I love the way he looks at me and how he calms down when I sing him a song. God has blessed us so much by giving us Jackson-- I just love him so much! :)

Three Months

January 28th marked Jackson's three month birthday! I just cannot believe how fast he is growing! He has turned into a chubby little guy and he is just SO cute. I know that I am a bit partial... Derek says that Jackson has "Popeye arms" because his forearms are bigger than his biceps. Jackson smiles SO much these days and I live for the moments when he does! Dad finished the crib and brought it down last weekend. And it was totally worth the wait. I need to take some pictures of it to put on here! Jackson is sleeping right now, or else I'd do it now!

Jackson just LOVES bathtime. Sometimes I'll put him in the bath to calm him down if he is just fussy and there have been times when I'll have him take a bath when I want him to wake up from a nap so he'll go to bed at his real bedtime. While he loves to kick and splash, he does NOT like when I run the water to keep it warm!

Jackson is a fabulous cuddler. Some days, I just sit and hold him and just look at him... even after he has fallen asleep. That is when I might normally take a shower, read a book, clean around the house... but I sometimes I just want to hold him. He is already growing so fast and I know there will be a day when he doesn't want to cuddle with me! Jackson does do funny things in his sleep sometimes like make kissy faces and stretch out his body in a funny way. This is a cute video I shot after Derek came home from work and they both took a nap.
