Valentine's Day Treat!

This V-day was a little different than most... low key, I guess we would call it, but it was great! Take out and sweats- my kind of night!

This is Jackson's cute V-day shirt... this lasted about 2 hours before he pooped all over it... typical!

For Valentine's we decided to give Jackson a little treat... RICE CEREAL! He loved it (I think)! If you notice in the next few pictures he wouldn't take his eyes off of the bowl, ha ha!

So the Bumbo is working great, but Mr Thunder Thighs might not fit into it much longer, so I've been looking at high chairs online. I found a great one that holds up to 250 pounds... WHY IN THE HECK does a high chair need to hold 250 pounds? If Jackson is ever 250 pounds he better be taller than his 6'4" father or else... ha ha!
Anyways, do any of you wise, experienced mom's have a high chair they love? tips? suggestions? Any advice would be great!


I got Andrew this shirt for Father's Day this last June... So nice of Andrew to share his gift with Jackson... HOP ON POP! I LOVE these two little butt nuggets! Jackson loves Andrew SO much and Andrew can get him to calm down when he's sad, laugh SO hard and they are so cute together. I am SO happy we had a boy cause their cute bond is heart warming!

My boy loves getting naked (a common theme for babies). I had to post this picture because his onesies always get stuck on his head... So please tell me why his head is in the 13%... I don't get it. It's not like it keeps me up at night thinking about it, I just think it's weird!

Jackson will be 5 Months on Monday the 21st and my o my I can't believe that I've had him in my life for only 5 months. I really can't imagine my life without him. I was looking at pictures the other day from 2008 and 2009 and thinking to myself, "Wow, what a life we had... get up and go whenever and do wahtever and come home whenever and not worry about bath time, bed time, story time, tummy time... how many wet and dirty diapers someone has had, how many minutes someone has eaten... and the list goes on." It's almost weird to imagine what a carefree life I used to live and how the only person I had to plan around was myself. I LOVE my new life as a mother and seriously wouldn't trade it for anything! Motherhood is such a blessing and I am grateful to be a mama!

P.S.- Jackson is kinda sick right now, cough, choking on his mucusy crap in his throat, runny nose- SO sad! Pray for my little nugget to not get croup like the Dr said it might turn into... and that I won't get an ulcer worrying about it. . .

Have a great week! LOVE YA!

my high chair has wheels which is awesome cause we can just move Peyton to where ever we want to feed her. also the top of the tray clips on and off and this is great cause she eats finger foods (like cut up bananas) and she makes a mess and i can just take the top of the tray of and wash it in the sink. makes my life easy!

What a cutie! He seriously is so darling. I need to come meet him still! Penny and Jackson would have so much to talk about! Can you believe how fast it goes? It just flies by so quickly. Well, Ali, you're doing great work. He's just a little doll!

Father's Day is really a time to celebrate the gift of a great dad. The ties and shirts overflows and restaurants are filled to the brim with doting wives and children. Too often one unique group of fathers are forgotten; the single dad. Single dads comprise those left to raise children alone since of divorce, death, option, or distance (feel wives and mothers in the military). He may well have the hardest job of all dads, since he is filling the role of mother and father. In the haste to acknowledged dads with devoted and accessible partners, don't forget the single dad subsequent door, at your job, or down the street. He desires to be celebrated too. His needs typically exceed that of other dads in that he is probably just trying to make it through the subsequent moment. Learn more:

The advice I was given when it comes to a high chair is to not get one at all! I have a sister-in-law who didn't like high chairs cuz she thought they took up space and kinda got in the way. I went with her advice and we just got the booster type seats that you stick in one of your dining table chairs. They are great because they seat a baby from the age of several months to 4 years old because they are adjustable. So we will use them for a long time! They also have trays like Cara's that clip on and off and it is really nice for cleaning. I do like them a lot because they are always just tucked away and not out and about our apartment. Just personal preference! :)

So cute! He really is so stinking adorable! I love his cute little smile! And about the highchair, i personally think the smaller the better! We have one that hooks onto the counter. It is just a little seat that hooks onto the edge of your counter so it doesn't take up hardly any space and is really easy to wipe down and clean. My sister ordered it online off amazon for pretty cheap and we love it! I also have one that you just hook onto a chair and it doesn't take up too much space but i still like the other one way more!

I love that beatles onesie... haha how adorable. Congratulations on the rice cereal. That was a big milestone. It looks like he was enjoying it

Hopefully little Jackson starts feeling better soon. Hazel got croup and has been sick FOREVER, it's been awful.

Taylor told me that I got a baby shower invite yesterday... I'm actually out of town for a couple of weeks so I won't be able to make it.... boo...I'm sad I'm going to miss it. Thank you for the invite though, I'm sure it's going to be fantastic.
