Jackson's hip. Way hipper than his mama who still uses words like hip. He has now decided that it's cool to not finish saying your words. examples "change his die" or "slidin' dow." Another new one is adding "uh" to end of words or substituting it for the real ending. He'll tell me Sam is a babuh, he wants to watch a movuh, or yeahyuh. I haven't decided if the last one sounds like a thick southern accent or a 90s rapper. Either way, he's cool.

I wish

I wish people thought I was so cute for going to the library, bank, and park all in my jammies.
I also wish those chubby cheeks were so cute on me.

Grandma's house

Something I neglected to blog about was Jackson going to visit Grandma's house after Sam was born. I cried when they were leaving cause I felt guilty about sending my son away...

It looks like he was miserable the whole time!

Can you tell?

Just after a bath Sams hair curls. I don't know if it'll stay but I love it... and him.

I think I'm gonna be alright.

Admitedly, there have been moments in the past 3 weeks where I thought "What have I done!?!" We're settling down now. Jackson loves his little brother. I don't know this because he says so but because he can't help but show me. He always asks to hold him so we get lots of cute moments like this...

Then almost like he's hiding the fact though we'll find him pop in a few unrequested kisses. This morning Brent and I were getting ready and thought that Jackson was watching little einsteins but when we walked in he was leaning close in to sam watching him. He ran back to the movie when he saw us but when he thought we weren't looking came right back in to watch him. I once thought that I didn't really know what pure love felt like until I was a parent. Now though, after watching Jackson, I think he gets it better than I do. He forgives faster than I do. He expresses it more often than I do. I think it's just a natural extension of him.

Car seat cover

I followed this tutorial cause if there was a fan club for this girl I would be in it--even though I don't know her--yeah, when I say it out loud it is kinda embarassing. I totally love it. We used to always drape a blanket over Jackson to keep him sleeping so when I saw this I knew I'd make it. It was really pretty easy. I already had the pieced part from a quilt that I had started. I heard you weren't supposed to quilt with prewashed fabrics so I'd just given up on it and it was just in my fabric pile. I had to add little scraps to the edges to make it big enough. The only thing is the tutorial said to put the straps 5 inches apart but i'm kinda a wuss and use my whole arm to haul a car seat. I couldn't fit my arm through with 5 inches so I made them more spaced. I couldn't tell you how much more b/c I don't measure anything.

So thankful.

I used to feel guilty for being happiest with my precious children when they were asleep. I've wised up. No more guilt about it. They both fell asleep simultaneously, I was nursing Sam and Jackson was leaning on my arm while I sang to him. Of course that came in the aftermath of a tantrum but I'll try to remember the end.

(Desi and Erin, seriously Jackson was asleep within 15 minutes after y'all left. Wouldn't of guessed he was tired huh?)
