Mothers Day 2010 and Much Much More!

Alright so I have had an epiphany that if I don't update the blog every few days, then when I do finally get around to doing so I have much to much to say/write/post/blab about. I am gonna go back to the way I used to be about this blog and try and get it done more often bc, I dread writing all the stuff I want now, bc it just takes up to much darn time! Precious time that Jackson is spending napping and I should spend cleaning, reading, sleeping, organizing, and relaxing!
Now on to the important stuff like MOTHERS DAY!! Oh how I love this day. Let me tell you why:
One- The reason I get to celebrate this day. See below:
Two- Because like my birthday it is all about celebrating me (among other people, I know, I know). I mean, we are being honest here right?
Three-It celebrates ALL the amazing moms in our life we are SO blessed to know
Four-I get special cards and gifts that make my heart swell
Five-Did I mention it revolves around moms, who are quite possibly the most incredible people in the world?
Six AND the most important one- I absolutely, positively, feel so special on this day that God choose me to be a mom and have a family. Its a day I spend realizing how blessed I am and how thankful I am to be surrounded by an adorable, loving husband and a VERY cute, happy, cuddly boy. WOW am I L-U-C-K-Y!!!!

We spent the weekend at my moms and it was wonderful, and relaxing. Jackson doesnt nap well any place other than his crib and mainly because he knows stuff is going on he wants in on, so that was our only glitch of the weekend! A one, one hour nap on Sat (leading to a VERY early bed time Sat night) and a small 45 minute nap in the morning on Sunday. I tell you what though, he LOVES his Grandma, Paw and Aunt Nora. Aunt Nora played with him the second she rolled out of bed Sat morning and he was putty in her hands. SOO cute. Here are a few pics she snapped while he and my mom were playing on the floor and then of course there is the attempt of a picture of them together her taking it that just didnt quite interest Jack Jack!

Mom made some amazing fish/shrimp tacos Sat night that were to die for, and a dessert that hit the spot. Then we asked for donuts and kolaches for breakfast on Sunday. See how low maintenance we are? HA LOL! Shipley's sure does do it right I tell yah, and Jackson was all over the donut and kolache. He ate almost an entire blueberry donut and kolache, plus fruit. It was nuts. Jackson and Taylor got me a gift card to a spa for a hot stone massage and I am so looking forward to my apt on Saturday. I get to go with my good friend Lauren YAY!!!
After a pit stop on the trip back home, to get to see our other amazing mom we are happy to have, Cami, we finished off the evening with Carrabbas Dinner take out style. Oh yum. I am spoiled and happy. Now back to who really matters and what this blog is all about....Jackson!
He has had a fun filled last week and this one has been pretty good too. In chronological order here we go:

We went on a nice walk with Kristen and Cassidy. We stopped at a little park by their house and fed ducks at the pond/lake. (What makes a pond a pond and a lake a lake? hmmm question to ponder, no pun intended but I like how pond is in ponder.) Anyways, we enjoyed the ducks and seeing the little baby ducklings too. The geese were not concerned about personal space which made me slightly uncomfortable, with flashbacks to my brother getting chased, and then bitten in the rear by one very fiesty, and hungry duck when he was a wee one. Didn't want that for Jackson, so I was, no lie, a little uneasy. But no worries, these ducks and geese were respectfully, invasive. So we got a quick pick leaving, of one lone ducky swimmin by himself. I think he was having a mini vacay. The loner thing worked in his favor, we gave him the rest of our food.
When we got there Jackson was more interested in watching the tennis players. He must have a thing for tennis balls, like his sister Dixie.

Meanwhile back at the casa we spent most of our week, relaxing and swinging. His new favorite thing to do. He stands at the back door and points at the swing. Very cute. Then when we come in he pitches a FIT, Pterodactyl scream, fists clenched, and maybe a few tears if he is really wanting to be dramatic. Not so cute. We always put his hat on him when he is outside (bc, you know, Im the kind of mom that is concerned about skin cancer but cant remember/want to put sunscreen on him EVERY time we go outside (so greasy)) so we put his cap on him and he leaves it there, but the other day he decided to get in touch with a little bit of his fly side. Oh yah, he has style, but don't ask him to rap, I've seen him dance and Im pretty sure the rhythm thing is still evolving.
His "Yo, Yo, Yo" pose. He did that au-natural.

Someone else is loving the swing set too...obviously ignoring the weight limit.

Jackson, you are now 13 MONTHS OLD!!! Congratulations kiddo, what are you doing now that you werent a month ago?
~Getting impossible to sit still so I can get a picture. As proof, see pics below and laugh my friends.
~You are mimicking alot of what we say, not necessarily the words, but definitely the sounds. Too cute.
~You now eat kolaches and donuts. HA! Actually you have only had them once, dont get too excited.
~You have gotten in another molar and I think there are either more of those coming in or your eye teeth are pushing up. Not sure yet, but the gums feel swollen and I can feel the teeth underneath.
~You had your first full blown mexican dinner, making your parents and Gay Gay and Pop, Oh so proud. It was chips, guacomole, queso, tortillas, enchiladas, fajita meat and a little chalupa. With a sprinkle of rice and beans!
~You try to run, but cant quite move your feet fast enough, so you trip forward and fall. Its really funny and cute, but sad when you fall into things and hurt yourself. Which brings us to the next point.....
~You are becoming quite an expert at getting bumps and bruises. Falling into a door frame, a door, a wall, and the concrete outside. Ouch.
~You are perfecting the art of letting people know how you really feel. LOL. The unhappiness that overwhelms you when something you have is taken away, or you are brought inside is insurmountable. You freak out. Its hilarious. And bad. All at the same time. We dont give in to your demands but man oh man if you kept screaming like you do so well, we might give in more just to keep you quite! LOL
~Your little personality is just booming. You are truly a funny funny kid, doing stuff constantly that makes us laugh! Yesterday you kept bringing all your puzzle pieces into the bathroom and putting them in my makeup drawer. You ran out of pieces so I said "Are there any more pieces, are you all done?" You went back out to look for pieces, came back empty handed and then clapped for yourself. It was too funny. You also love waving your hands high in the air and saying "woah" really loud and excitedly!
~You love to chase the cat still, except, your getting better at it. We havent seen too much of Bosco lately, I think he is catching on. LOL.
So thats what your up too!

This week it was a visit to the zoo with Kristen, and Lori and their respective chillens. We had a great time but it was blasting hot by the time we left. Jackson was a total trooper and had no nap that morning and stuck it out till about 1 when the heat and rhythm of the stroller got him. He was zapped. Next time we go, we are so getting there at 9 when it opens, it felt so much cooler and nicer then.
The 3 Amigos with the stinky flamincos.
And no, I didnt mean for that to rhyme, but Im glad it worked out that way ;)
So thats basically the end of this post, but I will leave you with my most favorite thing of the week. Brand new, one week old baby elephant, Baylor. Seriously, he is so cute, I just want to scratch him behind those big ol ears and give him a good kiss on the cheek. So so so so so so so so cute. These are the best pics I could get, there were alot of people and his momma and her friend were very protective of the little lad. He was so hairy and wobbly looking. Gosh so cute. This elephant momma had a nice present for her mothers day!
