8 Months!!!

I guess it is good that Jackson gets a month older every month, cause then I have a for sure reason to post something! Ha Ha! And, we'll keep up with our tradition of me saying, "Wow, time is flying!"

I didn't realize this until now, but it kinda looks like his sweet cheeks are not in a diaper because of his strategicly placed hand, but he is... I promise! Ha Ha!

Just relaxing....

...I LOVE this cheesy smile he's doing! Again, this paper is way interesting.

Done with the photo shoot aparently!

This picture is significant because when Jackson was born his foot was as long as my pointer finger and look at it now...


-Jackson tried Turkey & Turkey Gravy and loved it!
- Gobbled Up Apples-Banana-Strawberry Mix, and I mean gobbled up!
-Tried some Rice Rusks crackers... I don't think he got it that it was food at first cause they look so funny, but once he realized that he was eating something like we eat he thought it was way fun!
- GOT HIS FIRST TOOTH!!! (May 9) Surprisingly he wasn't as fussy as I thought he would be, but now that I think about it I think he was hurting for like the week before it actually popped through... Now he's acting the same so I think that we're about to get number 2 here any day.

I love my little man more than anything and I can't imagine my life any different.

Andrew is just finishing his last 4 weeks of classes and I seriously CAN NOT WAIT!!! He has school from 9-3 then work 3-9 and THEN homework! It sucks SO bad. I feel like Jackson has no dad, but really he has the best, hardest working dad and we are SO beyond grateful to have him!

I am laying here in bed and watching Extreme Couponing- ever watched it? These women spend $5 on $600 worth of groceries!!! NO JOKE! I am not getting motivated ,(well, maybe a tiny bit) I am getting mad! That is just insane- absolutely INSANE!!! They have MASSIVE amounts of food and everything you can imagine in their homes! This lady just said she has 150 rolls of toilet paper and she paid $0 for it!!! Andrew just said, "If you are bored why don't you do this?" Um, cause I am normal?!?!?

Well, I am tired... just cause Jackson gets 12 hours of sleep doesn't mean that I do!

Here and There...

We have had a lot going on these past few days. I'm pretty sure that for a straight 48 hours the only time that Jackson was set down and had some time alone was during nap time- good thing I am the nap nazi! We have had a lot of family here and there and everywhere and while it is always fun, I've missed laying on the ground saying, "Jackson, roll over here... come get this..." Here is what has been going on...

Jackson had his first ride in a grocery cart! The weather was FINALLY warm enough for a few days, and that car seat is o so heavy, so I decided that it'd be fun to have my little man bag that darn thing! He loved it, and so did I, until I turned around and he was sucking on the handle and I about threw up!

We found a new source of entertainment/ cage/ break for me... Jackson loved it! And, when I pulled the basket off he kept looking at it and wanting it back over him like a little fort.

Like, mentioned before, it's been warmer and warmer so we've been going on walks- so much fun!

Now, the best part... ANDREW GRADUATED WITH HIS MASTERS!!! I was more excited for him to be done than I was for myself to be done! I am SO proud of him and I am SO happy that we decided to have him do his Masters right after his Bachelors. This last year of our lives have for sure been the hardest (Andrew in school 24/7, new baby, me staying home...), but it has been the most rewarding.
Master Hyde!

There were bag pipes at the freaking graduation and Jackson HATED them... I think we all did! Ahhhh- they really made this 2 hour graduation fun!

Siegfried Fam...

My cute Family! Yes, Kourtney Kardashian has this dress!

Jackson in Andrew's Cap!

Andrew's awesome parents got him a grill for graduation! It cooks 35 burgers at a time.. right! No way, unless they were itty bitty burgers! We love it and it is SO nice! Thanks Kyle and Gay- we love you guys!

Then, Andrew's great- great aunt passed away and we went up to her funeral. It was short and sweet and got me thinking... If my funeral is longer than an hour I will haunt everyone who planned it because long funerals are the worst! My dad's aunt's funeral was 2.5 hours last year and I was about ready to die! So, there we have it, in writting- no longer than an hour for me!

Jackson is doing this new scruntchy face grin/ smile that is the funniest thing ever! I LOVE IT!

Last, but not least- Mother's Day! I love all of the mother's in my life and want them to know how much I look up to them and their example in every way! Words can not describe how blessed I feel to have the Lord trust me with such a sweet little spirit in our home. Jackson, you are the best thing in my life and at times make me not want to have any more kids in fear that they will not be as perfect as you are! (Am I nuts or what?!?) I truely believe that being a mother is the reason I am here on this earth. I am grateful that I have such great examples around me! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
